CELEBRITY Retirement

Cameron Diaz announced in 2018 that she was retiring from acting after a long and successful career. Despite not having starred in a movie since 2014's 'Annie,' she explained that she had no desire to make more films and instead wanted to enjoy life outside of the spotlight. Fortunately for fans, however, the retirement was short-lived, as Diaz revealed this year that she would be co-starring alongside Jamie Foxx in a Netflix action-comedy aptly titled 'Back in Action.'

Speaking on 'The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon' on September 16 about her return, Diaz said, "It's a little bit of muscle memory, you know what I mean? I did that for so long, it's kind of like the process, I kind of just fell back into it. But it feels a little bit different."

She gushed about how "amazing" it was to return alongside Jamie Foxx, who's "so great, he's so easy, he's so professional, he's so talented," she said. "The last movie I made was Annie with Jamie, and so the first movie back is this film with Jamie," adding, "It will be so much fun."
