Hollywood actress, Cameron Diaz has opened up about her life after retiring from acting and the big screen to focus on her family amidst other interest.
Joining Gwyenth Paltrow on the most recent episode of In Good health: The Sessions, the actress said since retiring, she has discovered peace and wellness.
While many criticised her decision to retire, the actress said the move was necessary and important to her.
Cameron Diaz said, “I just decided that I wanted different things out of my life. I had gone so hard for so long, working, making films and it’s such a grind. 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.
“It’s so intense to work at that level and be that public and put yourself out there. There’s a lot of energy coming at you at all times when you’re really visible as an actor and doing press and putting yourself out there.”
On how retiring from acting has been, she said, “Like peace. A peace in my soul because I was finally taking care of myself.”Photo Credit: Getty
