Selma Blair had said in a recent interview with Metro News UK that her friend Cameron Diaz had retired from acting.
“I had lunch with Cameron the other day. We were reminiscing about the film (The Sweetest Thing). I would have liked to do a sequel but Diaz’s retired from acting. She’s like ‘I’m done.’ 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,” the actress told the outlet, according to People.com.
Blair took to Twitter later and clarified, “Breaking news. Guys please, I was making a joke in an interview. Cameron Diaz is not retiring from anything. And for more breaking news: I am now retiring from being Cameron Diaz’s spokesperson.”
Diaz, who wed musician Benji Madden in 2015, hasn’t appeared in a movie since the 2014 remake of Annie.
