Cameron Diaz valued a more balanced lifestyle, which is one of the reasons she stepped back from acting.

During a one-on-one conversation with Kevin Hart on his new Peacock talk show, “Hart to Heart,” the “retired” actress admitted she wanted to be able to manage her own time.

“When you’re the person who’s sort of delivering on this one thing — you’re the person on the screen, you’re the person who’s ‘the talent’ — everything around you — all parts of you that isn’t that — has to be handed off to other people,” the “Charlie Angels” star told the comedian.

The 48-year-old felt being scheduled by others wasn’t what made her feel fulfilled. 

“Me as a human being — not me as Cameron Diaz, because Cameron Diaz is a machine — but for my personal, spiritual self, I was realizing that it’s kind of like that one part of me that was functioning at a high level wasn’t enough,” she said. 

She did admit she loves acting and has the energy to continue doing it but wanted more control. 

“I really do think it’s about the people you have in your life that can help you keep things moving. And I had some amazing people, and I had some people who were not serving my best interests always.

The last role Diaz had was in “Annie” in 2014.


Since then, Diaz married Good Charlotte guitarist, Benji Madden, in 2015 and they share a daughter, Raddix, 1.
