Cameron Diaz, who at one time was the highest paid female star in Hollywood, confirmed in an Entertainment Weekly interview that she is retired from acting.

Diaz, 45, who is married to musician Benji Madden, said so during an interview with Selma Blair, 45, and Christina Applegate, 46, who she co-starred with in the 2002 movie "The Sweetest Thing."

When asked if the three stars will get together more often, Diaz responded to a comment by Applegate, who said she was "semi-retired" from the industry, EW said.

"That's so awesome," Diaz told Applegate. "I'm totally down. I'm semi-retired, too, and I am actually retired, so I would love to see you ladies."

Blair had actually spilled the beans about Diaz retirement status earlier this month during an interview with United Kingdom's Metro.

"I had lunch with Cameron the other day," Blair said in the March 11 interview. "We were reminiscing about the film. I would have liked to do a sequel but Cameron's retired from acting. She's like 'I'm done.’”

"I mean, she doesn't need to make any more films. She has a pretty great life, I don't know what it would take to bring her back. She's happy," Blair continued.

Blair, though, walked back that statement on Twitter the following day.

Diaz made "The Sweetest Thing" at the height of her career. The year before, she was proclaimed the highest paid actress in Hollywood while riding the success of "Charlie's Angels" movie, according to The Daily Mail. She reportedly made $40 million in 2001 alone, the publication stated, beating out such stars as Julia Roberts, Halle Barry, and Nicole Kidman.

The former California teen model turned actress got her big movie break at 22, starring opposite of Jim Carrey in the 1994 hit movie "The Mask," the Daily Mail noted. Diaz has not appeared in a film since 2014's "Annie," which made $85 million at theaters, according to Box Office Mojo.
