Speaking at the Vanity Fair Oscars pre-party in Los Angeles last week, Selma said: 'I had lunch with Cameron the other day, 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"'. 

Instead, she wants to focus on husband Benji Madden, whom she married in 2015 after being introduced by Nicole Richie.

So how much is Cameron Diaz worth?

Who is Cameron Diaz?

Cameron Michelle Diaz was born August 20, 1972 in San Diego, California. She's an accomplished actress, producer, author and model.

At 16 years old she landed a contract with Elite Model Management, working with companies like Calvin Klein and Levi's. In 1990, she appeared on the cover of Seventeen magazine. She also modeled for several months in Australia and appeared in a commercial for Coca-Cola that was shot in Sydney.  

Cameron really rose to fame in the 90s, appearing in iconic films like The Mask, My Best Friend's Wedding and There's Something About Mary. After proving herself an exceptional comedic actress, Cameron began to take on more serious roles and, again, excelled. 

In 2010, after she'd appeared in several top-grossing films, Forbes named Cameron the second richest female celebrity of that year. She was beat out just slightly by Sandra Bullock and tied with Reese Witherspoon. 

Even after receiving this title, Cameron continued to push her career. In 2013 she released The Body Book: The Law of Hunger, the Science of Strength, and Other Ways to Love Your Amazing Body. She followed with a second book, titled The Longevity Book: The Science of Aging, the Biology of Strength and the Privilege of Time, in 2016.

Cameron Diaz movies

Cameron Diaz has appeared in several blockbuster films, including The Mask, My Best Friend's Wedding, There's Something About Mary, Being John Malkovich, Charlie's Angels, The Sweetest Thing, and more. 

The Mask, her first major film, became the highest-grossing movie of 1994. The accolade set the tone for the rest of her career. A Life Less Ordinary and Charlie's Angels were also the highest-grossing films of the years they were released.

In 2010, things took a slight downturn. Vanilla Sky, which Cameron appeared in alongside Tom Cruise, performed poorly at the box office upon its release. It went on to rake in $262 million (£188.6) worldwide, but it's poor early earnings coupled with mixed reviews from critics are why it's not as revered as some of her other projects.

The Green Hornet, Bad Teacher, What to Expect When You're Expecting, Gambit, The Counselor, The Other Woman and Sex Tape had similar issues.

Happy Valentine Day❤️
