Cameron Diaz is the latest to join the “out-of-state” trend, which has recently become popular among both celebrities and the workforce at large.
Eight years since her last acting role, Diaz, 49, is coming out of her acting retirement to return to the big screen, thanks to the help of fellow actor and entertainer Jamie Foxx. The pair starred together in the 2014 film ‘Annie’, Diaz’s last role before leaving the limelight.
Diaz and Foxx will star in a new Netflix original movie called “Back In Action,” which is set to begin production later this year.
Not retiring or taking a new job after retiring is a trend many people follow, both to take advantage of a hot job market and to hedge looming recession problems. Others may rediscover a sense of purpose and purpose by returning to work.
For Diaz, the decision to return to acting comes after years of pursuing other projects, including writing a sequel to her New York Times bestseller and helping start a wine company.
Diaz released “The Longevity Book” in 2016 as a follow-up to her first “The Body Book,” released in 2013. While both serve as guides to a happier life, Diaz’s second book takes a direct look at ageism in contemporary health. , beauty and workplace standards. Ageism is also common in Hollywood, prompting Diaz to “start a new conversation about aging and how to do it with strength, grace, health and wisdom,” she wrote on Instagram when it launched.
Four years later, in 2020, Diaz, together with Katherine Power, CEO of Merit, a beauty brand, and Versed, a skincare company, co-founded Avaline, a “clean wine brand” and co-founder. Diaz says the idea for Avaline came from a conversation she and Power had in her backyard in 2018.
“We realized we knew the content of everything that went on and in our bodies – why not wine,” she said in an Instagram post. Diaz has “always believed that the key to well-being is balance”, and launched the wine brand with that same philosophy in mind.
The ‘Charlie’s Angels’ actress also became a mother in 2019, after the birth of her now 2-year-old daughter Raddix.
On Wednesday, Foxx welcomed Diaz back to Hollywood with some tips from fellow non-retired Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady.
“Cameron, I hope you’re not mad I recorded this, but I can’t go back now,” Foxx wrote on Twitter, accompanied by an audio clip of his phone conversation with Diaz and Brady. “Had to bring in the GOAT to bring back another GOAT. @CameronDiaz and I are BACK IN ACTION – our new movie with @NetflixFilm. Production starts later this year!!”
Ready to get back into acting, Diaz expressed her excitement to get back into the hallway.
†[Jamie Foxx] only you could get me back in action,” she said in an Instagram story. “Can’t wait. It’s going to be a blast!”
