Cameron Diaz Is 'Over' Acting Full-Time But She's Still Open to Taking 'Some Roles': Source
The 46-year-old actress is pursuing other interests besides acting
Cameron Diaz is one of Hollywood’s biggest and most memorable talents — but she’s been taking a step back from her acting career.
A source tells PEOPLE Diaz, 46, isn’t interested in acting full-time at this stage in her life.
“There were times when she was so busy making movies that she barely had time to catch her breath,” says the source.
Now, however, “Those days are over but she could still take some roles — just not back to back,” adds the insider.
In recent years, Diaz has shifted focus from acting to wellness ambassador. In 2013, she released the bestseller The Body Book, followed by 2016’s The Longevity Book, in which she shared her secrets to aging beautifully.
In 2015, Diaz also married Good Charlotte band member Benji Madden and sources tells PEOPLE she couldn’t be happier.
“Cameron feels so much better about everything since she married Benji,” another source said. “She had many years of dating high profile hunks. She found a different kind of man in Benji.”
The source added, “He is her equal and respects her.”
Diaz previously dated Matt Dillon, Jared Leto, Justin Timberlake and Alex Rodriguez before meeting Madden in 2014 through her close friends and now sister-in-law Nicole Richie, who is married to Madden’s twin brother Joel Madden.
Diaz and Madden married 7 months after meeting and three months after getting engaged. Their relationship also coincides with Diaz’s last film role, which came in 2014’s Annie.
A source previously told PEOPLE that Diaz prefers her private life out of the spotlight to her life of the past.
“[Cameron and Benji] are great” and “both very happy living the quiet life,” the source told PEOPLE. “The quiet life she lives now with Benji, she wanted for a long time.”
