Despite throwing her hat in Hollywood, Cameron Diaz will keep being recognized for her exceptional portrayal of beloved movie characters in rom-com. These days the star is living out her real-life rom-com love story with music star Benji Madden and their little daughter.

The "The Other Woman" star seems to have romance working fine for her in present times, but looking back at her past romances shows she has been through some drama with high-profile relationships.

Her first spotlight romance was with Matt Dillon, whom she met on the set of "There's Something About Mary." The actors dated from 1995 to 1998, before she moved on with Jared Leto.

While she and Dillon's affair was public, Diaz opted for a private romance with Leto. She and the "House of Gucci" actor were together for years until they quietly split up.

Sparks flew after Diaz presented the 2002 Best Burp Award to Justin Timberlake at the Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards. The duo got into a high-profile romance within which she joined him on tour with Christina Aguilera.

Diaz and Timberlake did not mind the age difference and were vocal about it. Their relationship lasted four years before they shared a joint speech about splitting up in 2007.

The aftermath of their split was a bit dramatic as the duo reportedly got into a fight at Prince's Golden Globes party. The fight was said to have happened after Timberlake was spotted speaking with his now-wife, Jessica Biel.

The pair hit it off right there, with Diaz thinking he was a special person from inception. The couple got married in 2015, and in 2019, they welcomed their daughter Raddix Madden.

Benji is smitten, and although he and Diaz opted for private family life, he has gushed about her a few times. On Mother's Day, the rocker took to social media pouring out his heart and referring to Diaz as a "force of nature."

In 2018, during a "The Sweetest Thing" reunion, Diaz casually revealed that she was retired. At the time, she had joined her colleagues, Selma Blair and Christina Applegate, for the interview.

Following the bombshell announcement, the actress significantly stopped making movies, but she has also opened up about her decision. Speaking to Gwyneth Paltrow in 2020, the actress pointed out how she felt after retiring.

Diaz, 49, explained that she "got a peace in my soul" because she was finally taking charge of things herself. The actress stated that getting Hollywood fame made her feel like a product in her own life.

The actress told Kevin Hart on "Hart to Heart" that she had handed parts of herself to others for a long time and needed to take it back. However, the "Mask" star seems to be achieving her goal while handling motherhood.

In a recent interview on "The Kelly Clarkson Show," Diaz revealed that motherhood was the best thing she'd ever done. However, she also pointed out the challenges stating that while she did her mom checklist on two-year-old Raddix, it could get frustrating.

She revealed that she could get impatient sometimes and lose it. However, what was most important was repairing. Diaz stated that she just wanted her daughter to know that "mommy's human too."
