Cameron Diaz is coming out of acting retirement to reunite with Jamie Foxx for the new Netflix film ‘Back in Action.’
Foxx, 54, announced that he recruited NFL star Tom Brady, who briefly retired in February, to help bring the 49-year-old Diaz out of retirement for the new project. On Twitter, Foxx shared a recording of a conversation with Diaz where he surprised the actress by bringing Brady into the call, with the caption: “Cameron I hope you aren’t mad I recorded this, but no turning back now. Had to call in the GOAT to bring back another GOAT. @CameronDiaz and I are BACK IN ACTION – our new movie with @NetflixFilm. Production starting later this year!!”
Foxx and Diaz previously starred together in the 1999 film Any Given Sunday and in the 2014 remake of Annie. Diaz said in an interview with Gwyneth Paltrow’s series In Goop Health: The Sessions that she found peace after retiring from acting following the release of Annie. She has since become a mother, sharing 2-year-old daughter, Raddix with her husband, musician Benji Madden.
