Cameron Diaz Has Quit Hollywood According To Selma Blair

Celebs March 12, 2018 By Hugo

Since her breakout role alongside Jim Carrey in the 1994 comedy, The Mask, Cameron Diaz has been one of Hollywood's most prominent actresses, but it appears she no longer wants her name in lights if close friend Selma Blair is to be believed. 

While the 45-year-old hasn't personally admitted it, The Sweetest Thing co-star Selma Blair recently alluded to it when speaking to a reporter at an Oscars pre-party.

"I had lunch with Cameron the other day, we were reminiscing about the film," Blair said.

"I would have liked to do a sequel but Cameron's retired from acting, she's like 'I'm done'.

"I mean, she doesn't need to make any more films, she has a pretty great life, I don't know what it would take to bring her back."

The fashion model-turned-actress was one of Holywood's highest-paid stars in the 1990s and 2000s, and though she may no longer be the star she once was, her eclectic oeuvre, which ranges from starring roles in Martin Scorcese's Gangs of New York to the Shrek and Charlies Angels franchises, speaks for itself. 

Howeverm, Diaz, who is married to the Good Charlotte rocker, Benji Madden, hasn't starred in a movie since 2014's Miss Hannigan, which was much-maligned by critics.

Other outlets have speculated that Diaz is simply content with being a stay-at-home wife, which is fair enough when you consider the grueling press tours that come from being in a Hollywood movie. Speaking to E! about the strains of the acting, she said, "I just went, 'I can't really say who I am to myself,' which is a hard thing to face up to. I felt the need to make myself whole."

What do you think of Cameron Diaz as an actress? Will you miss her? Or do you think the time has come for her to step away from the limelight and let a younger generation come through?
