If you've ever sat down and wondered why you hadn't seen Cameron Diaz in a movie for quite some time, there's a good reason for it.

Although Blair's comments were a joke, Diaz actually opened up about taking a step back from acting last June during Goop's Wellness Summit in Culver City, California.

The mix-up happened when Blair recalled chatting with Diaz about their hit 2002 movie, The Sweetest Thing, during her interview with the Metro.

The actress' worked together on The Sweetest Thing in 2003. "She's like 'I'm done.", Blair claimed.

"But I did brag about having lunch with her".

When pressed further, Blair added, "I mean, she doesn't need to make any more films".

It capped off a busy year in which she also starred in Sex Tape and The Other Woman, but it seems she has no desire to make any further films.

An insider told the Daily Star Sunday newspaper: 'Cameron is constantly inundated with film scripts trying to tempt her out of retirement but she's just not interested. Mary marked the beginning of her transition from promising ingenue to burgeoning movie star. She got married in 2015 and hasn't looked back at Hollywood, Page Six reported. Diaz expressed interest in becoming a mother and spending more time with husband Benji Madden, according to another source.

Cameron Diaz, who posed at the SiriusXM Town Hall on April 5, 2016 in New York City, has not acted in four years.

Diaz and Good Charlotte rocker Benji Madden met in 2014 and married seven months later in a close-knitted ceremony in the living room of their Beverly Hills home and celebrated their union with an after-party on the tennis court.

He wrote: "She lacks the exuberant crudeness and vampy joy that every other Hannigan has brought to the part". A source speaking to Us Weekly, hinted that Cameron was purportedly ditching Hollywood because she wanted to have a child. They would love to have the chance to be parents'.
