Cameron Diaz learned a lot from marriage

Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden


The ‘Bad Teacher’ actress wed Good Charlotte rocker Benji Madden, 37, in January last year, and after 14 months, the 43-year-old admits she and her spouse have learned a lot since their marrige.  has opened up about how her life has changed.

“(I discovered) a part of myself that I never knew existed, ” she  has opened up to Britain’s You magazine. “I understand that something builds deep within you. We’ve learnt so much about ourselves in our first year, about the commitment involved, which is the cornerstone of everything. It’s not something that I thought would be different, but now I get it. Apparently I was missing something.”

The couple wed just 17 days after the 37-year-old guitarist proposed, following seven months of dating, and the big day came as a shock to many, as Cameron had previously described marriage as a ‘dying institution’.

“People just say, you know when you know… and I did, ” she explained, before addressing speculation about whether she plans to become a mother.

“The one thing I’ve always said is ‘never say never’. I think as you get older you know more; I have more to offer a child now than I did when I was 25.”

“I don’t know what’s going to happen in life and that’s the beauty of it; getting married is the perfect example of that.”

“You make choices and take a course for your future, but you don’t know where it’s going to end up. I am not in control. I am here for the ride.”

Although she has taken time off from her Hollywood career she kept herself active and released a follow up to her 2013 bestseller ‘The Body Book’.

The Longevity Book: Live Stronger, Live Better, The Art of Ageing Well. But, she said:  “(I’ve) always loved acting and making movies is rewarding, (but) I have nothing coming out and nothing looking ahead. At some point I’ll go back to it, but this (her writing and research) is what I’m engaged in at the moment.”
