Cameron Diaz has not starred in a movie since the 2014 musical “Annie,” and she says there’s a good reason for her disappearance from Hollywood: Two decades of traveling from film set to film set took a toll.
“I just went, ‘I can’t really say who I am to myself.’ Which is a hard thing to face up to,” she said at the Goop Wellness Summit on Saturday, according to E! Online. “I felt the need to make myself whole.”
As of now, Diaz has no planned projects for 2017. Her other most recent credits include “Sex Tape,” “The Other Woman,” Bad Teacher” and, of course, voicing Princess Fiona in the “Shrek” series.
The actress was on a panel alongside fashion designer Tory Burch, model Miranda Kerr and reality star-turned-designer Nicole Richie, while Goop founder Gwyneth Paltrow moderated. Paltrow asked Diaz what kept her from getting married until she was 40 (she is married to Good Charlotte guitarist and singer Benji Madden).
“I think it’s a matter of I just hadn’t met my husband, you know?” she said. “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 are both just weird enough for each other.”

She added, “We women are objectified so much. Somehow my husband has just been able to kind of show me what it’s like not to have that be a part of a relationship, and being an equal.”
