We here at Cameron diaz Source would like to wish Mrs. Diaz a Happy 51st birthday today. She has graced us with such amazing work the last few decades since her start back in 1994. Here’s to many more amazing projects that she has in store for us including Back in Action! Feel free to wish Cameron a very happy birthday
Cameron Diaz has not spoken to her longtime friend and co-star Jamie Foxx since his mysterious hospitalization in April – and she has ‘no clue’ what will happen to their joint film Back In Action, which was already plagued with complications.
A close friend of the 50-year-old actress tells DailyMail.com exclusively that ‘Cameron has not spoken to Jamie at all and does not know anything other than what she hears.’ The A-listers were shooting scenes together days before he was hospitalized.
Cameron has since wrapped filming for her ‘comeback’ project, but the insider says that she may not be coming back at all due to the series of unfortunate events that transpired since she decided to return to her acting shoes.
‘Cameron has not signed on for another film and is not currently taking any new scripts,’ the pal revealed. ‘Honestly, she is not sure what is going on with Back In Action and isn’t very proud of it, considering there was so much drama even before Jamie was hospitalized.’
Cameron was ready to quit acting for a second time when problems started occurring behind the scenes of Back In Action. The ongoing issues are said to have caused Cameron and Jamie to get into heated arguments on-set.
Their disagreements were reportedly never resolved prior to Jamie’s hospitalization, and now the friend says that Cameron is suffering from huge ‘guilt’ over the fact that she and her pal never ‘made amends’.
‘Cameron feels a tremendous sense of guilt now about their quarrels since she has not been able to make amends,’ the insider shared.
Representatives for Cameron and Jamie did not respond to requests for comment.
Although filming for Back In Action is finished, the source added that there are ‘major setbacks in post production’ for the Netflix-funded movie, noting that even Cameron isn’t sure what will happen with the project.
Jamie was an executive producer on the film and producers have been at a stand-still in recent weeks due to the uncertainty of his condition.
In March, Jamie allegedly ‘had an absolute meltdown’ while the film was shooting in the UK, which led to the firing of multiple people, including an executive producer, two directors and his own driver.
There was even more drama when it was revealed that production was paused last month after an unexploded WWII-era bomb was discovered on the film’s set in London, just before two major action scenes were set to be filmed.
Aside from ‘hating the drama and confrontation’ on set, she also didn’t like the 12-hour workdays that kept her from her husband Benji Madden, 44, and their daughter Raddix.
Fans were initially alerted about Jamie’s health scare when his daughter Corinne Foxx shared a statement on social media on April 12.
Corinne wrote, ‘We wanted to share that, my father, Jamie Foxx, experienced a medical complication yesterday. Luckily, due to quick action and great care, he is already on his way to recovery.’
‘We know how beloved he is and appreciate your prayers. The family asks for privacy during this time,’ the statement concluded.
In an Instagram post on May 3, his family posted on his profile said: ‘Appreciate all the love!!! Feeling blessed’ followed by praying hands, heart and fox emojis.
It’s unclear if Jamie himself made the post. At that point, no further details on his condition had been shared, leading to speculation about how serious his illness is.
One week later, an unnamed source shared on social media that Jamie’s situation was dire. ‘He wouldn’t be in a hospital this long if he was anything close to okay. His friends and family are hoping for the best but preparing for the worst!’
Corinne was quick to fire back. Sharing the statement from the unnamed source on her Instagram, she wrote, ‘Update from the family: Sad to see how the media runs wild.’
‘My Dad has been out of the hospital for weeks, recuperating. In fact, he was playing pickleball yesterday! Thanks for everyone’s prayers and support!’
Since then, Jamie’s family has been seen numerous times visiting a medical facility in Chicago, which specializes in treatment for adults with ‘severe complex conditions’, including stroke recovery.
In addition to Corinne, Jamie’s good friend Dave Brown was also seen visiting the facility and spent time chatting to Corinne before going to visit the star.
Corrine was pictured arriving at the facility, which is touted as the top rehabilitation center in the country, for ‘the most severe, complex conditions’.
On May 23, ex-boxer Mike Tyson said that Jamie may have suffered a stroke during his appearance on the Valuetainment podcast.
‘He’s not feeling well. They said a stroke. I have no idea what happened to him,’ Mike said.
Claims on social media that Jamie was left seriously ill due to a Covid-19 vaccine went viral recently, with notable right-wing figures such as Candace Owens backing it up.
Jamie’s reps denied the accusations and said that they were ‘untrue’ – but did not reveal what his health scare was caused by.
Last week, John Boyega, 32 – who starred alongside Jamie in his latest Netflix film They Cloned Tyrone – expressed great concern for Jamie at the film’s premier in Florida.
Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, John said, ‘No one has heard from Jamie. I wanted him to show up here, but you know, I know he’s dealing with what he’s dealing with. I just wish him all the best.’
Saying that there has been some ‘missed calls’ from himself to Jamie, he added: ‘I’ve been calling, I am just going to keep on calling.’
Cameron Diaz likely won’t return to Hollywood for another film – after a friend revealed the star has been struggling with super long work days that tear her apart from her husband Benji Madden and their three-year-old daughter, Raddix.
The 50-year-old officially retired from her Hollywood career in 2018, before being lured back by her close friend Jamie, 55, to star alongside him in action comedy Back In Action.
But her comeback project was thrown into turmoil earlier this month, when it was reported that Jamie ‘had an absolute meltdown’ on the UK set of the movie, which led to the firing of three people.
Now, a source close to the star has revealed that – while she does not have any issues with Jamie – she likely won’t return to the world of film after wrapping the project, because she’s had such a hard time being away from her family and hates the ‘drama and confrontation’ that so often erupts on movie sets.
‘These back-to-back 10-hour workdays have been a lot on her and she hates being away from Raddix,’ the pal tells DailyMail.com exclusively, adding, ‘Cameron loves being a mom more than anything in the world.’
‘She hates drama and confrontation. This is why she retired from the business in the first place,’ she source adds. ‘She has already proven herself in the industry and has nothing left to prove to anyone.’
Cameron famously walked away from Hollywood in 2018 to spend more time with her rocker husband Benji, 44.
The two welcomed their daughter in December 2019 and have been incredibly private about their lives as parents to their three-year-old.
According to the insider, while Benji has been incredibly ‘supportive’ of his wife’s decision to come out of retirement, the decision has taken a toll on him.
‘Benji is supportive of everything that Cameron does, but it has been a lot on him,’ the source tells DailyMail.com. ‘Although she has gotten to see her family while shooting the film, it is just not the same.’
In regards to Jamie’s tantrum on set that led to him firing an executive producer, two directors and his driver, the insider was mum on specific details.
They did say, however, that they would be ‘incredibly surprised if it caused any tension between Jamie and Cameron.’
‘When you are in a position of authority, sometimes you have to make decisions to let people go who do not share the same vision as you,’ the pal says.
‘Cameron is a businessperson and understands that this is necessary at times and, honestly, Jamie is the only reason that she is doing this film and they are still very close.’
Over the course of two decades, Cameron racked up over 40 massively successful films and, at one time, was the highest paid actress in Hollywood.
However, since announcing her retirement, she has turned her hand to other ventures – including creating her own wine brand, Avaline, which she launched with business partner Katherine Powers during the height of the pandemic in 2020.
This venture was a major turning point for the Charlie’s Angels’ actress – and has, according to the source, given her a new creative outlet on which to focus.
‘Cameron has gotten extremely involved in Avaline and was pivotal in it’s creation,’ the insider shared.
‘Aveline has grown exponentially and it is something that Cameron is very, very proud of.’
DailyMail.com has reached out to Cameron’s spokesperson for comment.
Prior to the film that she is currently working on, Cameron has not done a movie since 2014, when she starred alongside Jamie in the musical comedy film adaptation of Annie.
She officially announced her retirement in a 2018 interview with Entertainment Weekly.
Although she had no real plans to return to the spotlight, the end of her retirement was announced by Jamie on his Twitter account in June 2022.
In the shocking post, Jamie brought infamously unretired NFL star Tom Brady in on a conversation with Cameron in an effort to convince her back from her retirement.
During the call, she made a point to say how nervous she was about making an announcement.
‘I’m so anxious right now, I’m pacing the room… I don’t know how to do this, you know?’ the stunning actress stated.
Jamie dialed in Tom, 45, who unretired from the NFL only to re-retire again, to give Cameron a few tips.
‘I was talking to Jamie and he said you needed a few tips on how to un-retire. I’m relatively successful at un-retiring,’ the newly single quarterback said.
Jamie then told Tom that he was trying to coax Cameron to come back, referring to her as a GOAT, which stands for Greatest Of All Time.
‘Cameron I hope you aren’t mad I recorded this, but no turning back now. Had to call in the GOAT to bring back another GOAT,’ Jamie said.
Cameron shared a screenshot of the voice call to her Instagram story with a message to he longtime friend and fellow A-list star.
‘Jamie Foxx, only you could get me back in action!!! I can’t frickin wait it’s gonna be a blast!,’ Cameron said, dropping a hint about the title of their upcoming film.
CAMERON Diaz’s first movie in nine years is in chaos thanks to a meltdown by co-star Jamie Foxx.
Insiders say Oscar winner Jamie, 55, has thrown a strop over production issues and that has led to four people being sacked.
Back In Action, which is being filmed in London, is the first movie that Cameron, 50, is working on since Annie in 2014.
But the Shrek star’s return is not going smoothly due to Jamie.
A source said: “There have been some issues on set and Jamie has had a major meltdown over it all.
“He demanded the problems be sorted immediately and sacked four of the production staff — as if that would magically improve the situation.”
Those axed are an executive producer, an assistant director and a unit director — as well as Jamie’s driver.
The source added: “Some people working on it are totally fed up with how this has played out and Jamie has become pretty unpopular.”
Jamie, who won the Best Actor Oscar in 2005 for Ray, and Cameron have been filming since December — with a major explosion stunt being shot on the Thames.
It is their third time working together after Annie and Any Given Sunday in 1999.
Cameron had said she was retiring in 2018 to focus on family life with hubby, Benji Madden, 44 — and they had a daughter via surrogate in 2019.
Jamie announced he had managed to bring Cameron on board last June.
In a phone chat, that was released online, she said: “Jamie Foxx, only you could get me back in action. I can’t frickin wait it’s gonna be a blast!”
Cameron Diaz has been pictured for the first time on the London set of her comeback film, Back In Action, four years after confirming her retirement and eight years after starring in her last movie.
The actress, 50, looked incredible in an unmissable red shawl as she got to work with her long-time friend and co-star Jamie Foxx, 55, and Glenn Close, 75, on Thursday night.
Following years of speculation, she officially announced she was quitting acting in 2018 so she could dedicate more time to herself and her husband, rocker Benji Madden, 43. A year later, she welcomed daughter Raddix, three, in December 2019 and said she ‘couldn’t imagine’ leaving her child to embark on 14-hour shoots.
Little is known about Netflix’s upcoming action-comedy, however Glenn was seen shooting scenes with the pair on the Thames, while Jamie wrapped up in a bright red blanket.
During filming, two speedboats were seen speeding up the river, and there was an ambulance in the cordoned-off set, while Cameron and Jamie put their arms around two child actors, a boy and a girl.
Directed by Horrible Bosses’ Seth Gordon and written by Neighbors screenwriter Brendan O’Brien, the picture was announced back in June.
It was recently reported that Cameron would also star in a sequel to her smash hit 2006 film The Holiday, however co-star Kate Winslet swiftly shut down the claims.
Kate, who played journalist Iris in the rom-com, told People: ‘I read something about that, but it’s the first I’ve heard of it.
‘I promise you not an agent or a representative or anyone from the first one around has had any conversation with me about that. Hand on heart, that’s never come up.’
The end of Cameron’s retirement was announced through a message that was shared to Jamie’s Twitter account in June.
He notably brought in American footballer Tom Brady in an effort to coax the retired actress back from her long-term break.
During the call, she made a point of expressing how troubled she was about making a announcement.
She stated: ‘I’m so anxious right now, I’m pacing the room…I don’t know how to do this, you know?’
The Django Unchained star then brought in quarterback Brady, 44, who was famously indecisive about ending his career, to give the actress a few pointers. ‘I was talking to Jamie and he said you needed a few tips on how to un-retire. I’m relatively successful at un-retiring,’ he stated.
Jamie also added a message in which he said he needed a bit of help to get Diaz back into acting, describing her as a GOAT, which stands for Greatest Of All Time.
‘Cameron I hope you aren’t mad I recorded this, but no turning back now. Had to call in the GOAT to bring back another GOAT,’ he said. The Shrek voice actress also shared a shot of the voice call to her Instagram story with a message of her own.
She wrote: ‘Jamie Foxx, only you could get me back in action!!! I can’t frickin wait it’s gonna be a blast!’
Cameron’s last role on screen was as Miss Colleen Hannigan in the 2014 musical comedy feature Annie, in which Jamie also starred. The performer later confirmed that she had retired from acting during an interview with Entertainment Weekly that was published in 2018.
The actress took part in a conversation with Selma Blair and Christina Applegate, former castmates from her 2002 film The Sweetest Thing, telling them she would love a reunion, adding: ‘I’m semi-retired, too, and I am actually retired, so I would love to see you ladies.’
“I also want to play John Candy,” Barrymore told longtime co-star Adam Sandler on her talk show.
Drew Barrymore may be reuniting with Cameron Diaz onscreen.
The daytime talk show host told her longtime friend and co-star Adam Sandler that she has been discussing a “Planes, Trains, and Automobiles” remake with Diaz. And while Barrymore has her sights set on playing the role of an overbearing salesman originated by late star John Candy, the Steve Martin marketing executive character is still up for grabs between Diaz and Sandler.
“Her and I did discuss remaking ‘Planes, Trains, and Automobiles,’ and then I was like, ‘Well you know Adam and I talk about that,’” Barrymore recalled telling Diaz during the “Drew Barrymore Show” via Entertainment Weekly. “Well, I also want to play John Candy.”
“You could do a good Candy,” Sandler responded. “You know who could do Candy the best? [Chris] Farley. He would walk around the office and say lines from ‘Planes, Trains, and Automobiles.’”
The 1987 film directed by John Hughes centered on two businessmen trying to make it back home in time for Thanksgiving. Barrymore starred opposite Sandler in three films: “The Wedding Singer,” “50 First Dates,” and “Blended.” Similarly, Barrymore and Diaz co-starred in the 2000 “Charlie’s Angels” film and its 2003 sequel “Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle.”
After retiring from acting in 2014, Diaz is set to make her big screen return with the fittingly-titled upcoming Netflix film “Back in Action” with fellow “Annie” alum Jamie Foxx.
An audio snippet captured Diaz telling Foxx she is “so anxious” about coming back to acting. “I’m like pacing the room,” Diaz says. “I feel excited, but I don’t know how to do this, you know?”
Netflix posted on Twitter: “Cameron Diaz is officially un-retiring!! She will star with Jamie Foxx in a new Netflix movie — and we have an unexpected person to thank for getting her back in action…”
Diaz previously spoke out about her career in Hollywood earlier this year, telling “RuPaul’s Drag Race” judge Michelle Visage on the podcast “Rule Breakers” that she had to reflect on the “trap of it all.”
“Fame is very infantilizing,” the “Mask” star said. “It’s very much about keeping somebody coddled in a state of like, we see a little child and think, ‘It’s so cute, I want it to always be cute, and if I keep it cute by always treating it cute, maybe it’ll stay cute forever.’ And that’s how people treat you.”
