The millionaire fortune of Cameron Diaz that has allowed him to retire and make wine with grapes from the Penedès

When Cameron Diaz returned to Hollywood, it would not take long to become one of the most coveted stars by producers. From earning less than $400,000 for his first film, he went on to earn $12 million for Charlie's Angels (2000).

Crowned as the new princess of Hollywood, her sweet innocent-girl comedies captivated audiences from the get-go. The paparazzi, eager to get new faces to increase their coffers, began to persecute the new star who has had serious confrontations with the tabloid press on more than one occasion. During her courtship with Justin Timberlake she was ambushed and later she sued the National Enquirer for lying by publishing that she was unfaithful to the singer.

Previously, Cameron had dated two other actors, Matt Dillon, whom she met on the set of Something About Mary and Jared Leto. In January 2015, she secretly married the Jewish rite in her Beverly Hills mansion with the musician Benji Madden, whom she met thanks to her friend Nicole Richie -daughter of Lionel Richie and former best friend of Paris Hilton- who is married to Benji's brother, Joel Madden.

Always very jealous of her private life, there are hardly any photos of the couple and their daughter Raddix, who was born in 2019. Rumors circulated for a while that the little girl came into the world by surrogacy due to the lack of images of her pregnancy. Becoming a mother at the age of 47 was highly criticized by her fans, but the interpreter confessed that it was the best thing that had happened to her in her life. Not surprisingly, for decades she prioritized her work.

In 2018 she said enough is enough. She announced that she was retiring. She wanted to have a relaxed life in her home, experience new things, return to a slower pace, and dedicate herself to her organic wine business. Eye to the data, La Vanguardia published at the time that the grapes come from some Penedès wineries with which they make white and rosé wines for the modest price of about 21 euros. Perhaps a nod to her Spanish ancestors who emigrated to Cuba. Cameron can afford this early retirement, as in her relatively short career she has amassed a fortune of $140 million.

She wants to see her daughter grow up and although sometimes she feels an irrepressible desire to return to the spotlight, she considers that she has to make up for lost time. But once Raddix grows up who knows if she will measure her talent and beauty as she did opposite Julia Roberts in My Best Friend's Wedding (1997). About to turn 50, Cameron Diaz is in the best moment of his life.
