Cameron Diaz has finally addressed the long-running rumor that Jamie Foxx’s behaviour on the set of “Back in Action” prompted her to leave the industry for the second time. “I hated everything that was said about our set at the time,” she revealed on Tuesday’s episode of Molly Sims’ podcast “Lipstick on the Rim.” “You just want to flee and scream at the very top of your lungs, like, ‘What are you talking about?'” She also addressed the rumors that Foxx was “making everything miserable” behind the scenes, making her “never want to do another movie again.” According to Diaz, 51, the reports could not have been more false.

“Jamie is unrivalled. “I adore that guy,” she exclaimed. “He’s an exceptional individual and he’s so talented, so much fun.” There were “hiccups” on set, according to the “Charlie’s Angels” star. They were, nonetheless, “natural things that happen,” Diaz revealed that the only unforeseen delay was caused by Foxx’s weeks-long hospitalisation. “That is not my place to speak about,” she said, adding that Foxx, 56, is now “thriving.” “Back in Action” is Diaz’s first Hollywood film since taking a break from acting in 2014 to conceive a family. It’s also the third project in which she and Foxx have collaborated, following “Any Given Sunday” and “Annie.”


Cameron Diaz Finally Breaks Her Silence On Rumors Surrounding Jamie Foxx’s On-Set Meltdown Causing Her To Quit Acting

Cameron Diaz ended her silence after speculation that she intended to leave Hollywood because of her co-star Jamie Foxx. This week, the 51-year-old actress put rumors to rest by discussing her experience shooting the Netflix action comedy Back in Action with Jamie. Cameron talked out about the tension surrounding the making of her latest film and some of the “crazy” accusations swirling about her relationship with Jamie during a guest appearance on Molly Sims’ Lipstick on the Rim podcast. “I really hated all of the negative remarks that were being said regarding our set at the time,” the former The Holiday actress said months later. “All you want to do is scream at the top of your lungs, ‘What are you talking about?'” In the process of filming for the new thriller, Jamie was in the news for a medical emergency that forced filming to be suspended, as well as alleged “crazy” behavior by the crew. An informant stated in May that Cameron was ready to retire from acting for good after a bad experience with Jamie on her first film set after an eight-year hiatus. According to the source, Jamie had an “absolute meltdown” on set, prompting him to fire an executive producer, two directors, as well as his driver.

According to the insider, this disruptive attitude drove her over the edge, as one of the reasons she originally withdrew from the company was because she “hates drama & confrontation.” Cameron was angry when she learned of the negative news surrounding her co-star because she has a fantastic friendship with Jamie & had a “blast” working alongside him on set. The former Charlie’s Angels star expressed shock after hearing claims that Jamie was “making everything unpleasant and I was never going to make another movie again because of him.” Cameron insisted that nothing could be further from the truth. She was all praise for the actor, saying, “Jamie is, like, the cheerleader for the entire crew.” Everyone adores him. We have so much fun on set with him, and he’s simply a professional on every level,” he continued, adding, “Jamie is the best.” I’m crazy for that guy. He’s such a special person, and he’s so talented and entertaining.” When Cameron uncovered the rumours, she confronted Jamie about them, expressing her displeasure that people were disparaging him. But Jamie calmly dismissed her concerns and assured her that everything would be fine since “we know the truth.”
