1 Jul – Cameron Diaz is coming out of her retirement to star in an upcoming Netflix film alongside Jamie Foxx.


The news was first shared by Foxx himself, who posted an audio clip of a phone conversation with Diaz on Twitter, writing, "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!!" he added.

In the said call, Diaz can be heard telling Foxx that she is excited about the project, but not sure how to do it.
