Cameron Diaz made her last film — “Annie” — in 2014, and officially said she was retired && married, new child, etc. — in 2018.
Now Jamie Foxx and Netflix have lured her back in front of the cameras. She hadn’t been in anything good in a while, but she was a gifted comedienne and decent in dramatic parts. The work dries up for screen beauties over 40.
The name of the next feature, co starring Oscar winner Foxx? “Back in Action.”
She turns 50 in Sept.
It used to be network TV and cable that gave actresses a second wind in their 40s-60s. Now it’s Netflix.
