The actress who played the other woman in “The Other Woman” has decided to call it quits in order to devote more time to her family and get in touch with who she really is.
The happy wife and mother no longer gives her looks a great deal of care, and the reason for this is because she does not spend much time on any kind of cosmetic regimen.
Cameron Diaz has said that she had the expectation that she would have been married and had a family by the time she was 21. She had the goal of leading a life that was not unlike to that of her mother.
However, her life took a different turn with the success of “What to Expect When You’re Expecting” as at the age of 21, Diaz’s acting career started to take off, and she came to the conclusion that being a mother would have to be put on hold.
Diaz was well aware of the standards that were set for her by society, but she never felt compelled to measure up to those standards in any way. She never stopped looking for the right opportunity.
More than 20 years after the timeframe she had given herself, Diaz finally crossed up with Benjamin Madden, the main guitarist and backing singer for the band Good Charlotte.
After dating for just seven months, Benjamin popped the question to the actress-turned-wine-entrepreneur, and the pair made the happy announcement in December 2014 that they were engaged. On January 5, 2015, the pair tied the knot in a low-key ceremony that took place at her home in Beverly Hills.
Their long-held dream of establishing a family was finally realized on December 30, 2019, when their daughter was delivered through surrogate after Diaz and Benjamin had spent several years trying to conceive naturally but were unsuccessful.
After going through so much, Diaz can say that she is “really lucky” since her daughter Raddix is a “true miracle.”
The ecstatic mother said that given the fact that she gave birth to her kid later in life, the only pressure she now has is to extend her lifespan to at least 107 years. Her words were:
Diaz took the choice to stop performing and indicated that she wanted a daily routine that she could manage on her own since there was a time in her life when other people were in control of some areas of her life, so, she stated that she wanted to leave performing.
Diaz was able to spend more time with her family as a result of her choice to cease performing.
She went on to explain that it was difficult to resist comparing oneself to the standards of beauty that society had created. Diaz made a serious attempt to kick her “destructive” habits, which included picking at her own imperfections, spending too much time in front of the mirror, and taking too many selfies.
“I don’t care. What I look like is really the last idea that crosses my mind every day.”
Because she enjoys her role as a mother so much, she considers it to be the most rewarding experience of her life. Diaz is also delighted that she gets to experience this period of her life with her husband, who is always there for her and their child and takes after them both.
