Jamie Foxx is thrilled Cameron Diaz has agreed to be part of the Netflix film, 'Back in Action'.
Leaving Hollywood for a quieter and more peaceful life is a decision that requires decisiveness and courage. Cameron Diaz chose this route and has never looked back. She was the well-loved sweet girl next door in the 2000s. However, she said goodbye to acting when she married her rockstar husband and welcomed her daughter. Her only interaction with the public is through social media. Her recent pictures even shocked her fans.
Now, the 50-year-old has agreed to return to Hollywood one last time to make a movie. Jamie Foxx, who will be co-starring alongside Diaz in a new Netflix film called Back In Action, said he had to beg her. He promised her this would be her last film. Foxx and Diaz last starred together in 2014's Annie, following which Diaz announced her retirement. Foxx is thrilled she has agreed to be part of this movie, as per E! News.
Recently, photos of Diaz filming the movie have started to surface. One showed the actress standing in a black trenchcoat on a speedboat while filming. While some fans were excited to see her back in action, others had only negative things to say about how she looked. The photos were posted on Instagram by PEOPLE and showed one image of Diaz taken from a distance and another where she smiled at something and it was a closer shot of her face.
One fan said she looked like The Joker, while another wrote, "She looks nothing like her former self. So sad. Getting caught up in the plastic look." Another said they hoped it was simply a bad photo of her and that she had yet to have that much work done.

If you are wondering about the exact reason why she quit Hollywood, the Charlie's Angels star mentioned that she was working all the time, and she didn't have the time or capacity to make informed decisions that would be best for her future, she said on Heart to Hart. She also mentioned she took the decision to become the best mother to her daughter, Raddix.
Diaz and her husband, Benji Madden, surprised the world in January 2020 when they announced the birth of their daughter on Instagram. A source told US Magazine, "[Diaz] feels like this baby is truly a miracle.”
Diaz said that while she does try to be patient as a mom, it is not always possible, but when she loses her calm, she communicates with her daughter. She said she talks it out with her daughter and asks Raddix what she feels to repair the situation, Diaz said on the Kelly Clarkson Show.
As for her husband, the Good Charlotte guitarist is 6 years younger than Diaz. As per PEOPLE, the couple's relationship first became public in 2014 when an insider said they spent most of their time at Diaz's house. A year later, it was confirmed that Madden and Diaz had gotten married in the company of their friends and family who celebrated their love in an intimate ceremony.
Diaz took an unusual route and chose family over fame and she lives a fulfilled life.
