Cameron Diaz was heard saying in the interview, “It's so intense to work at that level and be that public and put yourself out there. There's a lot of energy coming at you at all times when you're really visible as an actor and doing press and putting yourself out there.” She added, “I stopped, I really looked at my life and I saw what I had been. When you're making a movie—it's a perfect excuse—they own you. You're there for 12 hours a day for months on end and you have no time for anything else. I realised that I handed out parts of my life to all these other people and they took it and I had to basically take it back and take responsibility for my own life.”

The actress stated that she had a lot of relations to build and repair. She added that she felt she was absent in her own life. However, she agreed that she had to let go of a lot as well. She disclosed that she never felt she was in her comfort zone when she was being catered around and taken care of by the people on the set who would take care of her so that nothing would happen to her. Diaz added that she wanted to be self-sufficient.
