Cameron Diaz: Finding Peace After Hollywood

Cameron Diaz reveals how she found 'peace' after ditching Hollywood for good

Cameron Diaz, the beloved actress known for her roles in movies like The Mask and There’s Something About Mary, made a surprising decision in 2017 – she retired from Hollywood. But why would one of the most successful actresses in history choose to leave it all behind? Diaz recently opened up about her decision and how she found peace and happiness in her post-Hollywood life.

Diaz’s career in Hollywood was nothing short of remarkable. She starred in blockbuster franchises like Shrek and Charlie’s Angels and her films grossed a staggering $3 billion at the US box office. However, despite her success, Diaz felt that it was time to shift her focus to other aspects of her life.

In an interview with Gwyneth Paltrow, Diaz explained why she retired from Hollywood. She had been working relentlessly for years, dedicating all her time and energy to her craft. She realized that she had neglected her personal life and needed to make a change. Diaz acknowledged the demanding and fast-paced nature of the industry, with long hours and constant commitments.

“When you’re making a movie, it’s the perfect excuse. They own you,” Diaz said. “You’re there 12 hours a day for months on end. And I realized I handed off parts of my life to all these other people, and they took it. And I had to basically take it back and take responsibility for my life.”

Diaz’s decision to retire allowed her to focus on herself and her family. She married musician Benji Madden, and together they welcomed their daughter Raddix in 2019. Diaz has expressed that being a mother is her top priority, and she cherishes the time spent with her family.

During her time away from Hollywood, Diaz kept herself busy by writing two bestselling health books, The Body Book and The Longevity Book. These books allowed her to explore her passion for wellness and share her knowledge with others.

However, Diaz recently made a comeback and decided to star in a new film titled Back in Action, alongside Jamie Foxx. This Netflix film will be her first since 2014’s Annie. Despite returning briefly to the industry, Diaz has made it known that her decision to un-retire is temporary. After wrapping up filming, she plans to retire from Hollywood once again, prioritizing her family and personal life.

Diaz’s story resonates with many people who understand the importance of finding balance and peace in life. She prioritized her happiness and well-being, and she has no regrets about her decision.

We admire Cameron Diaz for her incredible talent and the joy she has found outside of Hollywood. Her story serves as a reminder that sometimes, stepping away from the spotlight can lead to true fulfillment and inner peace.
