Cameron Diaz made a name for herself as one of the most sought-after actresses of the late ‘90s and early 2000s. These days, she’s taken on an entirely different role -- being a mom to her newborn child. That has meant some big life changes, obviously, and she’s opening up about what it feels like to manage her new normal everyday.
If it feels like it’s been awhile since you saw or heard from Cameron Diaz, you’re not imagining things. It’s been more than five years since the Charlie’s Angels star took on a new acting role. Though that doesn’t mean she’s been resting on her laurels -- the actress has been busy in her private life, especially since she and her husband Benji Madden welcomed their daughter Raddix in January.

While some fans obviously wonder if she’ll ever come out of her self-proclaimed retirement, it seems as though Cameron Diaz is currently very much at peace with the direction her life has taken. Besides, she’s still in the public eye to some extent -- she’s had several candid conversations with her peers in the past few weeks, which has once again put her back in the spotlight, albeit in a different context.
Whatever is in store next for Cameron Diaz, it’s pretty clear she’ll meet it with the same enthusiasm she has with everything else, from acting to parenting.
