Cameron Diaz è pronta per tornare sul grande schermo, una decisione emersa dopo aver ricevuto qualche incoraggiamento da una co-protagonista. Dopo anni in cui ha dominato Hollywood con ruoli in film di successo come “The Mask”, “C’è qualcosa su Mary” e i film in franchising “Shrek”, Diaz ha dichiarato pubblicamente di essersi ritirata dalla recitazione nel marzo 2018. Questa rivelazione è stata fatta durante una chiacchierata con lei I co-protagonisti di “The Sweetest Thing”, Selma Blair e Christina Applegate. Dopo che Applegate si è definita “semi-pensionata”, Diaz ha detto che era “in realtà in pensione”, secondo Entertainment Weekly.
Jamie Foxx had to get 'very innovative' when asking Cameron Diaz to unretire
Jamie Foxx and Cameron Diaz are collaborating once again after Diaz's acting hiatus. The two previously teamed up as co-stars of the 2014 remake of "Annie." Diaz then paused her acting pursuits for eight years, and the pair will next be starring side-by-side in the upcoming Netflix movie, "Back in Action." Diaz spoke to CBS Mornings about what led to her return to the industry. "I miss aspects of acting, or making movies," Diaz said. "Yeah, making movies is a particular skill set that is fun to exercise and be a part of. But yeah, it's a different lifestyle. And you kind of have to be ready to do that."
In a recent Entertainment Tonight interview, Foxx revealed that letting Diaz know the movie shoot was going to be an enjoyable experience resulted in her saying yes to the role. The "Ray" star repeated what he expressed said to Diaz, saying, "'Do you wanna have some fun? Just have some fun!'" before adding, "And I think that's what brought her to it." Foxx also had to be "very innovative" in convincing Diaz to act again, which included getting her on the phone with Tom Brady, who has unretired himself. Foxx went on to praise Diaz's professional accomplishments, calling her "such an incredible force" whom he "love[s]."
Thanks in large part to Foxx's efforts, audiences can soon catch Diaz again as she is "Back in Action"!
