In 2018, she opened up about her retirement from Hollywood during a reunion with her The Sweetest Thing co-stars Selma Blair and Jennifer Applegate.

When asked if she would be interested in making a sequel to the romantic comedy, the actress replied: “I’m totally on board. I’m also semi-retired and actually retired so I’d love to see you ladies.’ Many took it as a joke, but the reality was that Diaz did not have a movie proposal. A star who had done 40 films in 20 years. So why did Hollywood’s once highest-paid actress take a step back?

For starters, a lot had happened in her personal life. In 2015, she announced her marriage to Good Charlotte guitarist Benji Madden after seven months of dating and 17 days of engagement. And while her previous relationships often made headlines, her marriage to Madden was much more low-profile. What is known is that they have a daughter, Raddix Madden, who was born via surrogate.

When they announced the news in a joint Instagram message in 2020, the couple said: “While we are overjoyed to share this news, we feel the need to protect our little one’s privacy. So we won’t be posting pictures or sharing any more details other than the fact that she is really very very cute!!!’

Since then, he has turned to family life. The actress has also launched a new wine line called ‘Avaline’ and written two self-help books.
