Cameron Diaz just kicked her feet up and shared some pretty surprising information about her career.

Her close friend and “Sweetest Thing” costar Selma Blair actually revealed the info, telling Metro News that Diaz is done with acting for the foreseeable future.

“I had lunch with Cameron the other day. We were reminiscing about the film. I would have liked to do a sequel but Cameron’s retired from acting. She’s like ‘I’m done,'” Blair said. ” 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.”

It’s been four years since Diaz appeared in a movie but this sounds pretty concrete. Her last films, “Sex Tape,” and “Annie” both did terribly at the box office and even worse according to critics. So she married Good Charlotte band member Benji Madden in 2015 and has been laying low ever since.

Speaking about her new private married life, Diaz revealed that why waited until 41 to get married.

“I think it’s a matter of – I just hadn’t met my husband, you know?” Diaz said. “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. We women are objectified so much.”

She explained further, “And somehow my husband has just been able to kind of show me what it’s like not to have that be apart of a relationship, and being an equal.”
