Diaz reveals why she waited to marry

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.”

Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden’s Baby Struggles Reportedly Cause Marriage Problems

The ‘Sex Tape’ actress reportedly feels insecure and becomes controlling as she struggles to conceive a baby, driving the rocker ‘crazy.’

Is Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden’s marriage on the rocks? Rumor has it, the couple has had problems due to her struggles to conceive a baby. A source tells OK! that the 43-year-old actress is often in bad mood as she’s gone through fertility treatments.

“Benji has done his best to be understanding towards Cameron and everything she’s gone through with fertility treatments, but she’s simply exhausted and rarely in a good mood,” the source claims. “She’s put her career on hold, and she knows how much Benji wants a baby, so she’s frustrated and feels like a failure.”

The source adds that the pair’s relationship is also strained because Benji is often away in Australia working as a coach on the country’s version of “The Voice” and Cameron is being “high-maintenance.” The source says, “Cameron’s insecurities have made her controlling, and it’s driving him crazy. Some friends are saying they need to see a therapist or better communicate and get their marriage back on track.”

Gossip Cop, however, has debunked the story. Citing a source close to the “Charlie’s Angels” star, the site says the tabloid’s claim is “not true.” In fact, Cameron recently gushed about her husband and his new album “Youth Authority” in an Instagram post.

“One of my favorite things about being married is how much pride I take in my husband,” she wrote earlier this month. “He makes me proud everyday. One day it might be how generous and giving, another how gentle and thoughtful. Or when he is fiercely protective of the people he loves and cares about.”

Nicole Kidman Helping Cameron Diaz Get Pregnant?

Cameron Diaz spent some time in Australia before rumors that she may be pregnant circulated. Now, a report has surfaced saying she tried something Nicole Kidman did in the Land Down Under to “boost” her chances for a baby.

As reported by OK! Magazine, “The Other Woman” actress purportedly took a dip in the waters of Australia in hopes of finally carrying baby number one with husband Benji Madden.

“Cameron is very open-minded-she even tired bathing in Aboriginal waters in Australia to boost fertility, which she heard about from Nicole Kidman,” the source said. “Unfortunately, it didn’t work, so not she’s turned to IVF.”

It was not clear if “The Other Woman” actress has been getting advice from Nicole Kidman on her pregnancy struggles. But in 2008, Kidman did admit that she fell pregnant with daughter Sunday Rose after swimming in the waters of Western Australia during filming there.

“Nothing happened in a small way on this film… we had heat and torrential rains and equine flu and then I got pregnant,” Nicole Kidman told Australia’s Women’s Weekly in 2008 as quoted by The Telegraph. “Seven babies were conceived out of this film and only one was a boy. There is something up there in the Kununurra water because we all went swimming in the waterfalls, so we can call it the fertility waters now.”

Cameron Diaz, like Nicole Kidman before she finally fell pregnant, has been reportedly struggling to conceive for some time now. In a recent report on Starpulse, it was mentioned that she has been undergoing fertility treatments to help her get baby number one.

Over the weekend, Cameron Diaz and husband Benjie Madden were spotted on a night out in Los Angeles. The pair were once again bombarded by photographers asking if the actress was pregnant, as told by Hollywood Life. But pair kept mum on the shower of questions just like they have done in the past months.

Joel Madden ‘seeking Cameron’s help with marriage troubles’

Joel Madden has reportedly been “leaning on” Cameron Diaz for support in fighting for Nicole Richie.

The rocker and fashion designer tied the knot in 2010 and they have daughter Harlow and son Sparrow together.

There are rumors of trouble in their marriage at the moment, with Nicole being spotted out without wearing her wedding ring recently. While both appear to be putting on a united front on social media by posting cute photos of one another, it’s thought things aren’t in good shape.

Joel has apparently been relying on sister-in-law Cameron, who’s married to his brother Benji, for help.

“Joel is determined to fight for Nicole. He’s been leaning on Cameron, saying he doesn’t want to give up on the marriage. He says he’ll do whatever he can to prove his devotion to her and their family,” an insider told British magazine Closer.

Meanwhile Cameron has apparently been “begging” her pal to not throw what she has with Joel away, even inviting Nicole to stay with her while she thinks things over. The former reality star is said to have been open about her marriage woes with friends, admitting she and her husband have been drifting apart over the last few months.

This could be in part due to Joel’s stint as a judge on The Voice Australia, meaning he spends long periods away from home.

In contrast, things appear to be going well for Cameron and Benji, who got hitched at the beginning of this year. The couple are apparently keen to start a family and those close to the blonde beauty are sure it’s bound to happen soon.

“Having a baby has been something she’s dreamed of since meeting Benji and she’s happier than ever,” a source added.

Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden: Headed For Divorce ALREADY?!

Back in January, Cameron Diaz married Benji Madden in a low-key ceremony that took place in her backyard.

Diaz and Madden dated for just eight months before getting hitched, and the wedding was particularly surprising, as Diaz had gone on record as saying she had no interest in getting married.

Now, it seems that she’s wishing she’d stuck with her original decision and continued to roll solo:

“They were so smitten and now their relationship is unraveling just as fast as it started,” a source tells Star magazine.

Part of the problem, it seems, is that Benji initially led Cameron to believe that he desperately wanted kids. Now that it’s time to make with the babies, sources say he’s having second thoughts.

So much for those rumors of Diaz being pregnant and a shotgun wedding.

In addition to the baby debate, Madden and Diaz have reportedly had issues with everything from her past (He doesn’t feel like he measures up to the various A-list dudes she’s dated) to her career.

Yes, sources say Benji has pulled the ultimate douche move and begun advising Cameron on her career. Let that sink in for a moment: Benji freakin’ Madden is advising Cameron Diaz on her career!

“Benji has been nagging Cam to get her career back on track and focus on more serious roles, instead of romantic comedies,” says one insider.

He reportedly pushed her to set up a meeting with her agents (which he also attended) and they were spotted leaving the agency separately.

Looks like Benji might soon be regretting that “Cameron” tattoo.

‘Mean Moms’ Fake Poster Gets One Star Right: Jennifer Aniston

A fake poster for the upcoming New Line film “Mean Moms” that circulated on social media over the last few days suggested that Jennifer Aniston, Sandra Bullock and Cameron Diaz would star in the film.

New Line Cinema confirmed to Variety that Aniston, who has been in talks for the film for over a year, is still attached to star. The Bullock and Diaz castings, meanwhile, are purely figments of the Internet’s imagination and are not confirmed.

Some of the social-media posts also claimed that the film is sequel to “Mean Girls,” which was a Paramount picture, whereas “Mean Moms,” about the world of competitive parenting, is being produced by New Line Cinema. The films are, however, both based on books by parenting author Rosalind Wiseman.

New Line is currently looking for a director, and has not announced a release date for the film.

The Kardashian Reactions Twitter and Instagram parody accounts posted the fake image with the message: “Omg there is going to be a mean girls sequel called Mean Moms. THIS IS NOT A DRILL.”

Breaking: Cameron is now married

The couple tied the knot Monday night at Diaz’s Beverly Hills home after a whirlwind courtship and blink-and-you-missed-it engagement.

All told, we hear that about 100 guests were in attendance and, while a massive tent was set up in the yard, the ceremony took place inside the house. Friends and family filed into the reception tent after the I-dos.

Word just got out today that the super-stealth duo were planning on taking the plunge, boggling more than a few minds since Diaz and Madden just stepped out as a couple (and an unconfirmed couple at that) last May. The Good Charlotte rocker popped the question a few days before Christmas.

But maybe they started planning when they met, because the big celebration didn’t have the look of an 11th-hour affair. A source told E! News that Benji’s sister-in-law, Nicole Richie, and Diaz BFF Drew Barrymore would be serving as bridesmaids, and Gwyneth Paltrow and producer Jeffrey Katzenberg were among the guests who were spotted arriving. Drew’s hubby, Will Kopelman, arrived separately since his missus was busy getting ready with the bridal party.

So it sounds as though Diaz finally happened upon the right relationship, having lamented less than a year ago how people “chase” marriage because of the lofty ideal that it leads to automatic happiness. In hindsight, however, it certainly sounds as though Diaz’s stance on the possibility of finding the Mr. Right was softening.

About her own storied romantic history, the Sex Tape star told InStyle last spring that she was “grateful for all of it—whether it was something quick and passing or something that lingered too long.

“There is not one thing I’ve been through that hasn’t been a lesson that led me to this moment, and I can’t believe how great life keeps getting,” she said. And just last month, she reminded us that she had never said “I won’t” when it came to saying “I do.”

“You can just tell when people are good partners to one another and are kind to one another and compassionate and generous and thoughtful,” she told E! News during the Annie junket just weeks before getting engaged, all warm and fuzzy when talking about couplehood in general.

“I think that’s a really nice thing and you can see that,” Diaz added. “Because you can also see what people don’t think about their partners [laughs] and aren’t kind, aren’t generous. I think it’s obvious. Those things are obvious.”

As for her own future plans, whether she had any idea of what was coming or not, the actress said, “I stay right present, in the moment. I’m not the person, for whatever reason, I’m never projecting myself too far forward. I don’t live in the past. I try to stay really present, right in the moment where I’m at…And so, I’ve never said ‘never’ to anything. Believe me, I’ll try anything once or twice or maybe even three times.”

And yet all it takes is once. Congratulations to the newlyweds!
