This is Cameron Diaz’s last film role before his retirement.
To break the news, the US actor tweeted a snippet of a phone conversation he had with his playmate: In the humorous clip, we hear the four-time Golden Globe nominee say she can’t wait, but she can’t wait I am nervous about stepping in front of the cameras again. At this point, Tom Brady joined the call at the invitation of Jamie Foxx.
