Cameron Diaz quits acting: Actress, 45, confirms she HAS 'actually retired' four years after last Hollywood role... after Selma Blair denied she was 'done'

She hasn't been seen on the big screen since the movie version of the musical Annie was released in 2014

Now Cameron Diaz has confirmed that she is 'actually retired.'

There has been much speculation about her status after the 45-year-old actress stepped back from the spotlight in recent years.

Swan song: Cameron Diaz, who hasn't appeared on the big screen since the musical Annie in 2014, revealed that she's 'retired' in an interview published on Thursday

Selma Blair, 45, Cameron's co-star from 2002's The Sweetest Thing, added fuel to the rumors earlier this month when she spoke about her pal getting out of the business.

'We were reminiscing about the film,' she told Metro News in an interview published on March 11. 

'I would have liked to do a sequel, but Cameron's retired from acting. She's like, "I'm done." '

Selma later clarified her comments on Twitter.

'Guys please, I was making a joke in an interview,' Selma told her social media followers. 'CAMERON DIAZ is NOT retiring from ANYTHING. And for more breaking news: I am NOW retiring from being Cameron Diaz's spokesperson.'

But it seems there was some truth to Selma's statements.

During a Sweetest Thing reunion interview with Cameron, Selma and Christina Applegate that Entertainment Weekly published on Thursday, Cameron admitted she had retired.

When the trio revealed they hadn't got together since filming the 2002 movie. Cameron asked: 'Goddamn it, why not?'

'I don't know. You guys tell me. I see Selma,' Christina, 46, replied, to which Selma added, 'Our kids are friends. Cameron?'

'That's so awesome,' Cameron replied. 'I'm totally down. I'm...actually retired, so I would love to see you ladies.'  

Different life: Since Annie in 2014, Cameron has wed Good Charlotte rocker Benji Madden, 39,  seen here at an LA Lakers game in 2015, and has been enjoying time away from Hollywood

'I'm literally doing nothing, too! I'm semi-retired,' Christina shared. 'I haven't worked for years. I'm a mom, that's what we do. So I'm around, man.'

Christina was stretching the truth a bit. She appeared in Crash Pad and A Bad Moms Christmas last year and has TV movie Your Time Is Up in pre-production. 

Since Annie in 2014, Cameron has tied the knot with Good Charlotte rocker Benji Madden, 39, and has been enjoying time away from Hollywood.
