Cameron Diaz has spoken candidly about how her career.
The former highest paid actress on the planet last starred in Annie in December 2014, and now has hinted that she won’t be in any movie in the foreseeable future.
Speaking with Yahoo Finance Presents in an interview, the 48-year-old actress said she doesn’t see herself re-entering the grueling industry of film while she’s in this phase of her family life. She and her husband Benji Madden, who she married in 2015, welcomed their daughter Raddix in December 2019.
She spoke about how difficult it is to split time between motherhood and career when she watched a producer friend who started a family of her own.
“Her family started to evolve and I saw her go like, ‘Oh, wait, I only have 100 percent.’ You only have 100 percent, we don’t have two 100 percent, we have 100 percent. Right? So you’ve got to break up that 100 percent,” she said. “How much are you going to give to your family? How much are you going to give to your career?”
Diaz, who still makes money as an author, investor, and co-founder of her own wine label, went on to say: “So it’s just a different time in my life now. Now I’m here and this is the most fulfilling thing that I’ve ever done in my life. [To] have a family and be married and have our little nucleus of a family. It’s just completely the best thing. So I can’t give…I don’t have what it takes to give making a movie what it needs to be made. All of my energy is here.”
