Cameron Diaz ‘ready to ditch acting’

DON'T expect to see Cameron Diaz on the silver screen any time soon - or possibly even anymore.

Selma Blair, who co-starred with Diaz, 45, in 2002's The Sweetest Thing, revealed the blonde beauty is done with movies for good, according to the New York Post's Page Six.

"I had lunch with Cameron the other day, we were reminiscing about the film," Blair, 45, told Metro News.

"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. She's happy."

However, Blair later tweeted that the comments had been in jest:

Diaz, who hasn't appeared in a feature film since 2014's back-to-back flops Sex Tape and Annie, previously spoke about why she took a step away from Hollywood.

"I just went, 'I can't really say who I am to myself,'" she said in a June 2017 panel.

"Which is a hard thing to face up to. I felt the need to make myself whole."

Diaz married Good Charlotte guitarist Benji Madden in January 2015.

"We women are objectified so much," Diaz said. "Somehow my husband has just been able to kind of show me what it's like not to have that be a part of a relationship, and being an equal."
