It just so happens that Selma Blair, Diaz’s co-star in 2002’s The Sweetest Thing, joked in a new interview that Diaz had recently told her over lunch that she had retired from acting.
While Blair tweeted that Diaz “Is NOT retiring from ANYTHING,” no one needed to point out that Diaz has stepped away from the acting grind.
As Blair insinuated by saying Diaz’s life was “Pretty great” already, it’s not as if she needs the money.
Diaz, whose last film was 2014’s Annie, actually dropped clues in some of her later interviews as she promoted her books and new approaches to wellness and living the good life, that she may have just been over the game.
Diaz and Madden started dating in 2014 and shocked the world by getting married on Jan. 5, 2015-a Monday-at Diaz’s Beverly Hills home.
The groom’s twin brother, Joel Madden, and wife Nicole Richie(who had invited Benji to a dinner party they were throwing with Diaz, setting the whole thing in motion) were among the guests, as were Lionel Richie, Drew Barrymore, Gwyneth Paltrow, Leslie Mann and Judd Apatow.
While these days Diaz is doing more to move her favored causes along from behind the scenes, she said plenty in the past to give us an idea about just how much she’s enjoying this period of her life.
