Cameron Diaz Reveals Why She Decided To Disappear From Hollywood
Cameron Diaz has been noticeably absent in Hollywood, but it sounds like that may be over!
On Saturday, the actress popped up to support Gwyneth Paltrow at the Goop Wellness Summit in Culver City, California, and even sat on a panel alongside sister-in-law Nicole Richie, Tory Burch, and Miranda Kerr.
While she hasn’t announced any new project for this year, the 44-year-old at least addressed her break from the spotlight since last starring in Annie in 2014, saying:
“I just went, ‘I can’t really say who I am to myself.’ Which is a hard thing to face up to. I felt the need to make myself whole.”
In the meantime, Cameron has been happily married to musician Benji Madden, which Gwyn obviously had to bring up. Asking why she waited until she did to get married, the starlet explained:
“I think it’s a matter of I just hadn’t met my husband, you know? I had boyfriends before. And there’s a really, really distinct difference between husbands and boyfriends. And I have a husband who is just my partner in life and in everything. Talk about two very different people! We are so different from one another, but we share the same values├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥we’re totally two peas in a pod. We are both just weird enough for each other… We women are objectified so much. 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.”
Sounds like relationship goals to us!
She also added:
“I never experienced that before. I’d never been loved in that way. I look at him every day and he inspires me├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥he works so hard. I feel so lucky.”
It helps too that Diaz gets to be a part of “a very close family”, saying of the Maddens:
“They rely on each other. When we got together it was like, you’re just in the family. It’s a large support system.”
Well no wonder she wanted to be out of the spotlight when you can hang out with such an awesome fam!
Hopefully her latest appearance means we’ll be seeing more of her though.
