AceShowbiz - %cCameron Diaz% has finally shed some light on why she stayed relatively out of the spotlight in the past few years. In a recent interview during Goop's Wellness Summit, the 44-year-old actress revealed that her absence is a way to make herself "whole." She hasn't been starring in a movie since 2014's "Annie".
"I just went, 'I can't really say who I am to myself,' which is a hard thing to face up to. I felt the need to make myself whole," she said. She further claimed that she found the wholeness in her marriage to %cBenji Madden%. "I think it's a matter of I just hadn't met my husband, you know? I had boyfriends before. And there's a really, really distinct difference between husbands and boyfriends," she shared.
"And I have a husband who is just my partner in life and in everything," the actress, who previously dated %cJustin Timberlake%, %cJared Leto% and %cAlex Rodriguez%, added. "Talk about two very different people! We are so different from one another, but we share the same values--we're totally two peas in a pod."
Cameron has been married to Benji since 2015 after only seven months of dating. "We are both just weird enough for each other. We women are objectified so much," she gushed. "Somehow my husband has just been able to kind of show me what it's like not to have that be a part of a relationship, and being an equal. I never experienced that before. I'd never been loved in that way. I look at him every day and he inspires me--he works so hard. I feel so lucky."
