Cameron Diaz doesn’t plan a Hollywood return anytime soon

Cameron Diaz says she doesn't “have what it takes” to be a movie star after famously stepping away from Hollywood seven years ago.

Cameron Diaz isn’t planning on returning to Hollywood anytime soon.

The popular actress has not appeared in movies or on television since 2014’s remake of Annie, and fans have wondered since then what it would take to get her in front of the cameras again.

While she hasn’t entirely ruled a Tinseltown return, the 48-year-old mother, who gave birth to her first child Raddix with husband Benji Madden in 2019, is happy with where she’s at these days.

In an interview with Yahoo Finance Presents, the star opened up about the first time she saw motherhood and work collide in Hollywood.

“Something I learned early on from a friend of mine who was a producer and then become a mother, and I saw her go like, ‘Oh, wait, I only have 100 per cent’. You only have 100 per cent, we don’t have 200 per cent, we have 100 per cent. Right?

“So you’ve got to break up that 100 per cent into how much are you going to give to your family? How much are you going to give to your career?

“And I feel like for me I know what my ratio is for the balance in my life currently, because I already gave 100 per cent to my career as an actor, and I did 100 per cent there, it’s just a different time of my life now.”

The Golden Globe nominee added: “I don’t have what it takes to give making a movie what it needs to be made. All of my energy is here.”

The star may re-evaluate, however, once Raddix gets a bit older.

“Will I ever make a movie again? I’m not looking to, but will I? I don’t know. I have no idea,” she said last month during an interview on SiriusXM’s Quarantined with Bruce.

“Maybe, never say never, but I couldn’t imagine being a mum now where I’m at as a mother with my child at her first year to have to be on a movie set that takes 14 hours, 16 hours of my day away from my child.”
