Earlier this week, it was announced that Cameron Diaz has signed on for her first movie in many years, and that it will be an action comedy starring Jamie Foxx. This was a surprise, given that the “Charlie’s Angels” actress had left the business and openly stated her disinterest in returning to Hollywood as she is raising a family. As excitement grows about Diaz, who played the lead role in the Netflix series “Back in Action,” now we can have an idea of how she feels about everything that is happening.

The source also claimed that the actress’ seven—year-old husband, Benji Madden, reportedly “encouraged her not to retire,” and also said that “Back in Business” is the “perfect” movie for her to return to. Much of the decision may have been related to the involvement of Jamie Foxx, with whom she apparently “enjoyed” working before.
On Wednesday, Jamie Foxx shared a recording of a conversation he and his former co-star had about possibly working together again. Cameron Diaz shared that she was “excited” but feels like she doesn’t know “how to do it” after years of being away from the set. Fox surprised the actress by putting Tom Brady on the line to give her “some tips on how not to retire.”

The actress constantly starred in several films for almost ten years between the end of the 90s and the beginning of the 00s. And in the process, she has established herself as one of the most prominent names in the industry.

As announced in the Instagram post above, production of Back In Action is due to begin later this year.
