Cameron Diaz Praises Husband Benji Madden On Their 7-Year Wedding Anniversary

Cameron Diaz praised her long-time hubby Benji Madden on their 7-year-wedding anniversary on Instagram.

Madden, 42, shared a tribute on Instagram, writing in the caption that he “always dreamed of having a family like this.” The pair welcomed their first child, daughter Raddix, in December 2019.

“Happy, peaceful, consistent, loyal and unconditional equally filled with passion and depth,” he continued. “Calling it a Honeymoon doesn’t cover it. Real life. The only real challenge we have is making time go slower cause life goes by fast in the happy lane, Always and forever knowing we are home @camerondiaz Happy Anniversary I love you!”

In the comment section, Diaz, 49, replied, “I ✨❤️✨YOU MORE AND MORE EVERYDAY [sic]. Happy, peaceful, consistent, loyal and unconditional. Passionate and deep = OUR LOVE.”

“LOVE YOU FOREVER AND ALWAYS,” she added.

In the past few years, Diaz has stepped away from acting, revealing in 2018 in a conversation with EW that she is “actually retired.”

When speaking with Kevin Hart in an appearance on his talk show, Hart to Heart this past summer, Cameron shared how her decision to retire was the fact that she spent an enormous amount of time and energy on acting. So much so that she was no longer managing her own life.

She continued to say how when she was acting, “every aspect” of her life, including her finances to her home, was managed by other people.

“Me as a human being — not me as Cameron Diaz, because Cameron Diaz is a machine — but for my personal, spiritual self, I was realizing that it’s kind of like that one part of me that was functioning at a high level wasn’t enough,” she said.

She went to admit that while she adores acting and “could go forever,” when it got to the point where other people were making big parts of her life as her acting career was just as big.

“I really do think it’s about the people you have in your life that can help you keep things moving,” Cameron said. “And I had some amazing people, and I had some people who were not serving my best interests always.”

“But you don’t have time to figure those things out if you are just going, going, going, going with blinders on.”

“I just really wanted to make my life manageable by me,” Cameron said. “My routine in a day is literally what I can manage to do by myself. It’s the best feeling. I feel whole.”
