Cameron Diaz Opens Up About The Real Reason Behind Why She Quit Acting

Cameron Diaz said that she decided that she wanted different things out of her life, as she had gone so hard for so long for making and working in films. She confessed that it felt like a grind and it left not much space for her personal life. When asked about how she felt walking away from a successful movie carrer, Diaz replied, “Peace. I got peace in my soul. I finally was taking care of myself.” The former actress further added that post quitting her action career, she focused on her relationships with family and friends after having certain aspects of her life being controlled by others for many years. The Knight and Day actress said, “When you’re making a movie, it’s a perfect excuse — they own you. You’re there for 12 hours a day for months on end and you have no time for anything else.” Since Cameron Diaz quit acting, she has released two books and is currently enjoying some quality time with her super-supportive husband Benji Madden and their daughter Raddix Madden.
