While it has been six years since Cameron Diaz officially retired from acting - we have some exciting news for her fans ...

The 49-year-old is making a long-awaited comeback to the big screen to star in a new Netflix movie alongside Jamie Foxx!

Taking to Twitter, Foxx announced the news with an audio clip of himself, Diaz and NFL legend Tom Brady talking about the Charlie's Angels star's "un-retirement" over the phone.

In the clip, Brady, who announced his retirement from football earlier this year before retracting the decision just weeks later, can be heard giving The Holiday actress tips on re-emerging into the spotlight.

"I was talking to Jamie, and he said you needed a few tips on how to un-retire. And I am relatively successful at un-retiring," Brady can be heard saying.

Diaz said she was "anxious" but "excited".


Little is known about the film - fittingly titled Back in Action - but Canadian comedy actor Seth Rogen is on deck to direct, having also co-written the script alongside Brendan O'Brien.

Diaz opened up about retiring from acting in an interview earlier this year, telling podcast Quarantined With Bruce that she is focused on being a mother to one-year-old daughter Raddix Madden, who was born in December 2019.

The star's last acting role was 2014's Annie remake.
