It’s been eight years since Cameron Diaz decided to throw in the towel and retire from her acting career. Although, you might be wondering what the blonde bombshell is up to now? 

Besides starting her own business called Avaline Wine and writing health books such as The Body Book & The Longevity Book, it’s possible Diaz has dabbled in something a little more risqué. Is Cameron Diaz starring in porn after quitting Hollywood? We got all the facts. 

Soft-core porn history 

Previously working as a model, Diaz shot to stardom almost immediately with her debut in 1994’s The Mask starring opposite Jim Carrey. From there, Diaz became one of the most popular and successful actresses in Hollywood. 

Before Diaz was the superstar we know and love today, she may have dipped her toe into some erotica. The Charlie’s Angels actress starred in a softcore erotic film before her acting career took off. So how did Cameron Diaz fall into this mess? 

At nineteen, Diaz shot a bondage photoshoot, which was filmed and turned into a half-hour video. In the 1992 video, Diaz is dressed in a high-cut bodysuit (think black and latex-y). 

According to the New York Post, she’s also shown lurking, dominatrix-style, over a shirtless guy in chains with another young model called Natasha. Cameron pulls down her bodysuit and hardens her nipples with aerosol spray in the video. 

Two years after the kinky video was shot, Cameron hit the big-time due to the success of The Mask. She went on to build a squeaky-clean image on which she has built her reputation. However, the low-grade erotica film gained popularity and was distributed on the internet in the following years. The actress tried to stop the circulation of the footage — but the holders of the video allegedly demanded $3.5 million from her to bury it.

Diaz fights blackmail & a legal battle 

When the 1992 video hit the web in 2004, Diaz’s lawyers were not happy. Her legal team and the photographer became embroiled in a legal battle over the pictures & video footage.

The photographer, John Rutter even allegedly tried to blackmail Diaz by asking if she wanted to buy back the shots. The Los Angeles District Attorney’s office tells EW that Rutter was initially charged with one count each of extortion, attempted grand theft, forgery, and perjury. 

Rutter claims that Diaz signed a contract turning over the right and he may do what he wants with them. Diaz claims that Rutter forged her signature, making the contract an illegitimate document. The photographer was found guilty and faced up to five years in jail. 

 A family woman & entrepreneur

After a long and successful career, Cameron Diaz opened up about why she walked away from acting in a recent appearance on Kevin Hart’s Peacock talk show, Hart to Heart. “For me, I just really wanted to make my life manageable by me.” 

She explained to Vanity Fair that actors are often infantilized in the film industry, treating them like fragile children. Diaz explained that the most minor tasks were done for her, and a big reason for her retirement was to regain her independence and self-reliance again. 

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly in 2018, she announced that she had retired from acting. Diaz’s final movie before retiring was the 2014 remake of Annie. Now that she’s retired, she’s taking time for her family. Diaz married the lead guitarist of Good Charlotte, Benji Madden, in 2015. They welcomed daughter Raddix in December 2019. 

Now forty-nine, Diaz is one of the most successful actresses on the planet. She’s worth about $100 million, and most recently has published The Body Book. But the question withstands, did Diaz star in a porn film after retirement? 

No, but she went through quite a rollercoaster to eradicate her soft-core porn appearances as an early adult. Now, she humbly enjoys motherhood, family, and her independent success.
