Today is Cameron’s 45th birthday today. We on behalf of Cameron-Diaz.org would like to wish Cameron the best birthday ever and hope to see her on the big screen very soon! If you would like to, feel free to leave birthday wishes below.
Cameron Diaz flashed her mega-watt grin Saturday while hanging out with her import/export agent mother Billie in Seal Beach located seven miles from her Long Beach hometown.
The four-time Golden Globe nominee – who turns 45 this Wednesday – was carrying an empty glass bottle as she bonded with the 67-year-old widow (born Early), whose husband Emilio passed in 2008.
The NY Times bestselling author let her natural beauty shine through on the Orange County outing – wearing a grey T-shirt, white knee-length skirt, and plastic shower slides. Cameron’s last public appearance occurred June 10 when she gushed over her husband of two years, Benji Madden, during Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop Wellness Summit. ‘We are both just weird enough for each other,’ Diaz said during the Balls in the Air panel – captured by USA Today’s Andrea Mandell.
‘I have a husband who is just my partner in life and in everything. 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.’ On Tuesday, the 38-year-old guitarist’s pop punk band Good Charlotte with twin brother Joel dropped their WAR music video off their sixth studio album Youth Authority.
Perhaps Cameron will join the Voice Australia coach when GC headlines Warped Rewind At Sea (October 28–November 1) cruising New Orleans to the Mexican isle Cozumel.
The There’s Something About Mary alum – who previously romanced the Justin Timberlake and Jared Leto – spent much of 2016 promoting her second book, the 272-page wellness tome Longevity. But Diaz hasn’t acted since her dismally-reviewed roles in Annie, Sex Tape, and The Other Woman – which still managed to gross a combined $456.6M at the box office in 2014.
‘I just went, “I can’t really say who I am, to myself,” which is a hard thing to face up to,’ the effervescent blonde explained.
‘I can’t do the same things I’ve been doing for two decades if I want to have a full life. I felt the need to make myself whole, really, and I felt like what I was doing with my life, I knew how to do very well. I’d been doing it for decades and it was easy for me to keep busy, keep all the balls up in the air.’
Where has Cameron Diaz been?
The actress last appeared in the 2014 musical Annie, co-starring Rose Byrne, Bobby Cannavale, Jamie Foxx and Quvenzhané Wallis. While she’s one of the most popular (and highest-paid) movie stars in Hollywood, Cameron said two decades of non-stop travel from film set to film set was too much. “I just went, ‘I can’t really say who I am to myself.’ Which is a hard thing to face up to,” she said at the Goop Wellness Summit Saturday. “I felt the need to make myself whole.”
So far, the actress has not announced any new projects for 2017.
Cameron appeared on a panel alongside Tory Burch, Miranda Kerr and Nicole Richie; Gwyneth Paltrow served as the moderator. Towards the end of the discussion (held in Culver City, Calif.), the Goop founder asked her famous friends about their relationships. “Cameron, you got married later,” she said. “What was it that kept you from getting married until you were 40?”
“Forty-one,” Cameron politely corrected her friend, flashing her megawatt smile. “I think it’s a matter of I just hadn’t met my husband [Good Charlotte’s guitarist and singer Benji Madden], you know? I had boyfriends before. And there’s a really, really distinct difference between husbands and boyfriends. And I have a husband who is just my partner in life and in everything. 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. We are both just weird enough for each other.”
“We women are objectified so much,” she said. “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.”
Nicole is Cameron’s sister in-law, as she married Joel Madden seven years ago. The fashion designer called the Maddens “a very close family,” telling the panelists, “They rely on each other. When we got together it was like, you’re just in the family. It’s a large support system.”
Cameron added that her husband of two years supports her in ways she never imagined possible. “I never experienced that before. I’d never been loved in that way,” said the Other Woman actress, whose famous exes include Jared Leto, Alex Rodriguez and Justin Timberlake, to name a few. “I look at him every day and he inspires me—he works so hard. I feel so lucky.”
Gwyneth Paltrow closed her Goop health and wellness conference with a celebrity panel on Saturday, and no one kept it as real as Cameron Diaz.
The actress opened up about everything from why she’s taken a three-year break from acting to what made her decide to marry Benji Madden in 2015.
Diaz first said she decided to take a time out from Hollywood after two decades of non-stop travel from film set to film set. “I just went, ‘I can’t really say who I am, to myself. Which is a hard thing to face up to,” she said. Diaz decided to slow down. “I felt the need to make myself whole.”
Towards the end of the panel, Paltrow, who moderated, asked her famous friends assembled (including Tory Burch, Nicole Richie and Miranda Kerr) about their love lives. “Cameron, you got married later,” said Paltrow. “What was it that kept you from getting married until you were 40?”
“Forty one,” corrected Diaz with a grin. “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. And I have a husband who is … just my partner in life and in everything. 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. We’re both just weird enough for each other.”
“We women are objectified so much,” she continued. “And somehow my husband has just been able to kind of show me what it’s like not to have that be apart of a relationship, and being an equal.”
Of course, Diaz and Richie are sisters-in-law; Richie has been married to Benji’s twin brother Joel (of Good Charlotte fame) since 2010. Richie called the Maddens “a very close family. They rely on each other. When we got together it was like, you’re just in the family. It’s a large support system.”
Diaz added that Benji supports her ambitions equally. “I never experienced that before. I’d never been loved in that way,” she said. “Where he and Joel came from and what they’ve accomplished in their lives…just the drive, for the purest reasons. They push themselves. I look at him every day and he inspires me. He works so hard. I feel so lucky.”

It’s been 15 years since Cameron Diaz presented a Children’s Choice Award to Britney Spears, but the actress is still on the pop diva’s mind. The 35-year-old Grammy winner shared the 44-year-old Golden Globe nominee’s ‘garden glory’ Instagram from 10 month ago on Tuesday.
‘Cameron Diaz posted this and considering I’m obsessed with my garden I had to repost!’ the Make Me… hitmaker – who boasts 108.1M social media followers – wrote.
‘I’ve been a huge fan since Something About Mary and still am. The yellow [tomatoes] are the sweetest though.’
Aside from cultivating greens, Britney and Cameron share one other thing in common – Justin Timberlake. Diaz dated the 36-year-old pop singer from 2003-2006, while Spears dated him from 1999-2002 after meeting age 12 on The New Mickey Mouse Club.
Two ex-husbands and two sons later, the Mississippi-born blonde has moved on with Iranian fitness model Sam Asghari, who starred in her Slumber Party music video. The SoCal native wed The Voice Australia coach and Good Charlotte rocker Benji Madden in 2015 after only a 17-day engagement. Meanwhile, Justin began romancing his wife – Spark: A Space Tail actress Jessica Biel – back in 2007, and they now share two-year-old son Silas.
The Can’t Stop the Feeling crooner will next compete for five Billboard Music Award trophies (including top song sales artist) when the ceremony airs May 21 on ABC.
