– Cameron Diaz: Hello?
– Jamie Foxx: How are you? It’s Foxx.
– Cameron Diaz: Hey Jamie. Thanks for calling. Right now I am very excited. I’m anxious.
– Jamie Foxx: I know. But how do you feel?
– Cameron Diaz: I feel excited, but I don’t know how to do it, you know?
– Jamie Foxx: I understand. Listen, I have someone on the other line who can help you with that. Can I invite you to the call?
– Cameron Diaz: I would love to. Any kind of advice you may have.
However, Diaz was not only supported by Jamie Foxx, but also by NFL player Tom Brady, who joined the conversation to give the actress some advice, as he too returned from early retirement:
– Jamie Foxx: Very good. Wait a second. Hello? Tom! Are you there?
– Tom Brady: Jamie! How are you?
– Jamie Foxx: Good. Cameron, it’s the GOAT
– Cameron Diaz: What? Tom?
– Tom Brady: Hello, Cameron.
– Cameron Diaz: Oh my God. Is it Tom Brady?
– Tom Brady: I was talking to Jamie and he said you needed some advice on how to come back from retirement. I am relatively successful on the subject.
– Cameron Diaz: Honestly, that’s exactly what I need.
– Jamie Foxx: Alright guys. I’m off so you can talk.
– Tom Brady: Perfect. We will do it.
It is worth mentioning that Diaz decided to end her acting career because she wanted to focus more on her private life and motherhood. Interestingly, in Annie, her last film released in 2014, the actress shared credits with Jamie Foxx.
Though Back-in-Action It does not yet have a release date, it is known that production will begin later this year, under the direction of Seth Gordon.
