Cameron Diaz Explains Why She Has No Plans to Return to Acting

Cameron Diaz hasn’t appeared in a movie since 2014′s Annie and now she’s opening up about why she has no plans to return to acting.

The 48-year-old entertainer has been focused on her personal life ever since marrying Benji Madden in January 2015. The couple welcomed their daughter Raddix into the world in December 2019.

In her professional life, Cameron is now focused on her successful organic wine brand Avaline, which she launched last year with business partner Katherine Power.

“Avaline is the only sort of day-to-day work that I’m doing other than, you know, being a wife and a mother, which has been the most… fulfilling. That’s what it is. It really has been the most fulfilling part of my life so far. I just like so important. Like it’s, I just feel like it’s, it’s everything that, you know, I probably somehow waited for this so that I could do all that other stuff. So I didn’t have any distractions, you know what I mean?” Cameron said on SiriusXM’s Quarantined with Bruce show.

“I’m never going to say never about anything in life. I’m just not that person, So will I ever make a movie again? I’m not looking to, but will I? I don’t know. I have no idea. Maybe, never say never,” Cameron said.

She continued, “But I couldn’t imagine like being a mom now where I’m at as a mother with my child at her first year to have to be on a movie set that takes 14 hours, 16 hours of my day away from my child. I just couldn’t. I personally feel like that wasn’t the mom that, I wouldn’t have been the mom that I am now had I chosen to do that at any other time in my life.”

Cameron also expressed sympathy for parents who don’t have the ability to stay home from work and be with their kids.

“I feel for so many mothers who can’t, that have to go to work, you know, whatever they’re doing, I feel so much for them and for their children and for all of that, but it does really take a village,” she said. “And that’s the thing that, you know, there’s so many, I mean, let’s, if we break it open to where we’re at currently, all that, I just feel so blessed that I get to be here now with my child and, you know, get to be the mother that I get to be. It’s such a blessing it’s completely privileged and, I’m just really, really grateful.”
