It was only when she slipped away from limelight that fans noticed.

“I just looked around and there were so many parts of my life that I wasn’t touching and that I wasn’t managing, and I couldn’t really manage, because everything was so massive,” said the 49-year-old actress.
But Jamie Foxx couldn’t contain his excitement when he posted a recorded phone call with Diaz on Twitter confirming the actresses’ comeback…

Taking to her Instagram page, the actress confirmed her comeback to the sliver screen writing: “Jamie Foxx, only you could get me back in action!!! I can’t frickin wait it’s gonna be a blast!”
Seth Gordon, who will be directing Back In Action revealed that he wrote the movie’s script with Brendan O’Brien…
Although, the plot of the movie still remains under wraps, according to reports in Variety, the shooting is expected to begin later this year.
The movie will also star Tom Brady, who gave advice to Cameron, saying he’s “relatively successful at unretiring…”
