Cameron Diaz has been part of Hollywood for over a decade, starring in more than 30 films and many more to come. She is highly respected in the industry and loved by fans around the world.
She is also one of the highest paid actresses in Hollywood. When Diaz starred as Elizabeth Halsey in the movie, Bad Teacher, she got $1 million as basic salary. However, she was also promised a percentage of the movie’s profit.
The film was a raging success on the box office, earning Diaz more than $40 million from the producers as her cut. The movie deal was regarded legendary in Hollywood and Diaz made history as the highest paid female entertainer in the industry. Though, the producers did not consider the deal a smart move. The actress has hinted that she was going into retirement. She wants to have a rest from the glitz of Hollywood.
This announcement doesn’t mean that she cannot be tempted to join a blockbuster movie anytime. For an actress who has done noble in interpreting different roles and getting millions of dollars paid into her account each time she stars in a movie, she is still need around.
