    Inside Cameron Diaz’s Relationships
    In the past, Diaz has made headlines for various reasons, especially her love life. The producer has dated different men, including A-list actors. The icon’s first famous relationship became public in 1995 when she was romantically involved with her fellow movie star, Matt Dillon.

    Dillon once revealed that he loved Diaz dearly, considered her his muse, and was in awe of his love for her, especially as he had not been in a deep emotional relationship. Although the actor was head over heels in love, the relationship did not stand the test of time and ended in 1998.

    One year after the breakup, the actress started dating Jared Leto, and just like the first relationship, her romance with him ended in 2003. After the split, the author entered relationships with other celebrities like Justin Timberlake and Alex Rodriguez.

    How Did Cameron and Her Husband Meet?
    After her relationship with Rodriguez ended, Diaz said she did not want to marry anymore. However, at 42, her mind changed after she met her husband. In September 2021, the actress was a guest on Anna Faris’s podcast “Anna Faris Is Unqualified,” when she opened up about how she met the man of her dreams for the first time.

    The “Charlie’s Angels” star revealed that she met Benji through Nicole Richie and his identical twin brother, Joel Madden. Richie and Joel happen to be Diaz’s sister-in-law and brother-in-law.

    A report revealed that Diaz and Benji are neighbors to many celebrities such as Gene Simmons, John Mayer, Kate Upton, Vin Diesel, and Justin Verlander.

    During the chat, Diaz explained that after meeting with the duo, she was placed in the same room with Benji, and they ended up “finding each other.” She even wondered why she had not seen him before, further explaining:

    “I saw him walking towards me, and I was like, ‘Huh, he’s hot, I haven’t seen him before.’ But when I saw him, like who he was, that’s what made me really be like, ‘Oh you, you’re special…”

    The entrepreneur also mentioned how meeting both brothers was not the same, even though they are twins. Diaz confessed that although Joel and Benji were identical, they were very different. She retold:

    “They’re not the same; they’re so different. Even though they are twins, they’re very, very different, obviously.”

    The Icon Retires from Acting
    In 2014, Diaz featured in her last movie “Annie.” The following year after dating for nine months, on January 5, 2015, the pair got married in a tent in the backyard of their home in Beverly Hills, with a guest list of 127 people.

    Three years later, she left the world stunned with more shocking news of her retirement from acting. While many thought her decision was tied to the need to focus on her newly found love, the star revealed the main reason during an appearance on Kevin Hart’s Peacock Talk Show, “Hart to Heart.”

    Diaz relayed that she wanted to make her life manageable. According to the producer, parts of her life were handed off to other people at a point in her career. When she hit her forties, she realized she had lost touch with some aspects of her life.

    In 2018, a source claimed the celebrity didn’t have the desire to work and enjoyed being a “housewife” and being at home. However, what she desired more than anything was to be a mother, and since she and Benji had been trying since getting married, having one child would be a miracle.

    The couple wished to be parents, and trying to fulfill that dream had made them closer. Since leaving Hollywood, Diaz said she felt whole. The former actress now makes the right decisions and spends quality time with her husband and daughter, Raddix, whom they welcomed in December 2019.

    The pair announced their daughter’s birth on Instagram in January 2020. In May 2022, Diaz revealed on “The Kelly Clarkson Show” that Raddix was two and she loved being the little girl’s mother as parenthood was the “best thing” she’d ever done.

    The celebrity said being a parent meant being grown enough to calmly ask her child what she was feeling when Raddix acted up. Benji’s wife believes children are always trying to express a feeling and not just trying to be bad.

    When such moments came up, Diaz went through her checklist, which included figuring out if the child had eaten or was tired. The star thought being an older parent and having worked hard to welcome Raddix was what made her more patient.

    One other thing she encourages is to apologize to one’s children for hurting their feelings after blowing up about things. Diaz urged parents to admit to being human beings, too. Next up, let’s have a look at the home where the former actress married her husband.

    The Couple’s Luxury House
    Currently, the actress lives with her family in a Beverly Hills, California mansion purchased in late December 2019, for a whopping $14.7 million.

    The building sits on 1.7 acres of land and is 9,287 square feet. The house was listed by Ginger Glass of Compass and comprises the main house, guest house, seven bedrooms, and ten bathrooms.

    The exterior of the property speaks class. It boasts a motor court, a three-car garage, and a room for ten cars. It has a private backyard with native trees, an outdoor kitchen, a fireplace, and a pool with a spa.

    While the exterior is lavish, the interior is far from different. The main house comprises a double-height living room, an outdoor breakfast area, a formal dining area, and a fully equipped kitchen.

    The master bedroom features a sitting area, fireplace, dual master baths, walk-in closets, and a private patio. The main house also boasts a theater room with a bath and six additional bedrooms.

    In addition to these, the mansion is graced with wide and light timber floor woods for warmth and marble benchtops for an extra luxurious feel in the kitchen. For the bathrooms, they have brass fixtures and even more marble.

    A report revealed that Diaz and Benji are neighbors to many celebrities such as Gene Simmons, John Mayer, Kate Upton, Vin Diesel, and Justin Verlander. More than anything, Diaz is grateful to be spending much time with her family. She feels blessed to be around her daughter and to be the mother that she is.

    The Hollywood legend is great at parenting, and posts from her husband, especially on Mother’s Day celebrations, prove it. Hopefully, Diaz and Benji will stay together forever and be awesome parents to their daughter.
