AceShowbiz - Cameron Diaz has set the record straight on her retirement rumors. The 45-year-old actress confirms that she has retired from acting in a new interview with her "The Sweetest Thing" co-stars Selma Blair and Christina Applegate.
During a discussion with Entertainment Weekly, the three of them are asked if they have reunited since filming the 2002 comedy. While Blair and Applegate say their children are friends, Diaz says she wants to see her co-stars more often.
"Maybe I should, you know, I mean, I'm down. I'm literally doing nothing," Diaz says, to which Applegate responds, "I'm literally doing nothing, too! I'm semi-retired, I haven't worked for years. I'm a mom, that's what we do. So I'm around, man."
This prompts the "Bad Teacher" actress to say, "That's so awesome. I'm totally down. I'm semi-retired, too, and I am actually retired, so I would love to see you ladies." Blair ends the discussion by saying, "I would love it."
Rumors of Diaz's retirement first picked up steam when Blair said in an interview with Metro, "I would have liked to do a sequel but Cameron'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."
Adding fuel to the rumors, a source told Daily Star Sunday, "Cameron is constantly inundated with film scripts trying to tempt her out of retirement but she's just not interested. She's happy, in love and wants to make the most of her freedom and free time."
But before words continued spreading around, Blair took to Twitter to clarify that her previous statement was a joke. "BREAKING NEWS. Guys please, I was making a joke in an interview. CAMERON DIAZ is NOT retiring from ANYTHING," the "Hellboy" actress tweeted. "And for more breaking news: I am NOW retiring from being Cameron Diaz's spokesperson."
