Cameron Diaz was once the actress for romantic comedies since her glamorous debut in “The Mask” in 1994.
However, her career came to an abrupt halt at her own will as she declared retirement from the acting career. She revealed on Wednesday “In goop Health: The Sessions” series run and hosted by Gwyneth Paltrow, her dearly beloved actress friend, that her priorities have changed over the years. She firs went on about her current occupation as a business owner at her very own winery firmament.
Then she went on to address the elephant in the room, which was the reasons on her leaving showbiz.She declared that her mentality grew up, especially when it came to her own well-being and relationship with those around her. “I just decided that I wanted different things out of my life.
I had gone so hard for so long, working, making films and it’s such a grind,” said Diaz.“I didn’t really make any space for my personal life. ” Her career was indeed stiflingly elaborate as she earned four Golden Globe nominations and a very well-off career of 20 years from 1994 to 2014.
When asked what getting retired felt like, she replied: “A peace.I got a peace in my soul. ” She added: “I finally was taking care of myself.
” “When you’re making a movie, it’s a perfect excuse — they own you.You’re there for 12 hours a day for months on end and you have no time for anything else,” she said. “Actors are infantilized.
We’re put in a position where everything is taken care of for us.”
Diaz said she never really felt comfortable with that sort of life, and had to take back responsibility after retiring.
She decided to become “self-sufficient” and prove she could take care of herself as an adult, “putting all the pieces of my life together the way that I wanted it to be put together, not how other people thought it should go.
” Diaz also said it’s “intense” being in the public eye.”There’s a lot of energy coming at you at all times when you’re really visible as an actor and doing press and putting yourself out there,” she said.
Diaz has released two books — “The Body Book” and “The Longevity Book” — and married Good Charlotte singer Benji Madden in 2015. The couple announced earlier this year the birth of their daughter Raddix Madden.
