Cameron Diaz, 48, wants to live until she's 107 after having a baby 'in the second half' of her life


‘No pressure!’ Cameron Diaz, 48, jokes she wants to live until she’s 107… after having a baby ‘in the second half’ of her life

She surprised fans by revealing her shock baby news earlier this year at 47.

Now, Cameron Diaz has joked that she wants to live until she’s 107, after having her first child ‘in the second half’ of her life. 

The 48-year-old actress welcomed daughter Raddix – whom she shares with rocker husband Benji Madden – into the world just nine months ago, and said she’s under ‘pressure’ to make sure she lives for as long as possible in order to be there for her daughter throughout her life.

The movie star said: ‘A lot of people do it the other way around … they get married [and] have a family in their youth.’

‘I’m kind of doing it in the second half of my life. The only pressure for me now is I have to live to be, like, 107, you know? No pressure!’

And although the Charlie’s Angels star feels pressure to survive for at least another 60 years, she couldn’t be happier with her life right now.

She added: “Even with all of the amazing experiences I’ve had in traveling and accomplishments of working hard and putting things into the world I’m proud of … I know, this is really the most gratifying time in my life, to be in this place, to get here.

‘Having a family when you’re young … it’s like anything when you’re young: You do it. But when you’re my age and you decide to do it, it’s a real choice. You really have to work hard for it.”

Cameron stepped back from her acting career in 2014 after appearing in Annie, and although she insisted a return to Hollywood isn’t completely off the cards, she wouldn’t feel bad if she never made another movie. 

Speaking to Naomi Campbell on the model’s No Filter YouTube series, she explained: “I feel really resolved. I mean, I never say never to anything, first of all, but I feel really resolved. I haven’t made a movie since 2014. It’s been a long time, it’s been seven years or six years since I made a film. Girl, I am okay with that. 

“There’s no part of me that’s like, ‘I gotta get in front of a camera!’ I don’t feel that way – and that’s not to say I won’t someday. But I’m really resolved at where I’m at right now.”
