Cameron Diaz Accuses Hollywood of Misogyny.

In the 90s and the first decade of the new century, the face of Cameron Diaz was the spitting image of fame, the summary of what it meant to be a woman and a Hollywood star.

Not surprisingly, the actress had been part of such blockbuster films as Something About Mary, The Mask or Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.

But 2014 arrived and we saw the last participation of the actress on the big screen. Without warning, he moved away from the spotlight and would only confirm his goodbye four years later: “I started experiencing fame when I was 22 years old, so 25 years ago, that's a long time. I have given more than half of my life to the public," he said at the time.

And now, Diaz has reappeared to load the ink on the misogynist and macho world of Hollywood, which she suffered in her own flesh.

“Clearly I didn't do everything that could be done now because people are more aware, kind of like #MeToo. There were still parameters. During the 90s and the 'two thousand' there was still a lot, a lot of misogyny. That level of exploitation of powers was something that was found throughout the industry, ”said the actress in an interview for Michelle Visage's podcast.

Cameron explained the way in which she and other colleagues managed to deal with the situation: "Laughing at all that and trying to get out unscathed was normal," she explains.

And, at this moment, it seems that the star does not miss her time in the film industry: “If I look back, I see that it is a trap, especially in our society, with what we value and what we give importance to. I am a victim of all the exploitation and objectification to which we women are subjected. And I have adopted them as mine at times.”

Cameron Díaz began his successful career at the age of 22, making his debut in the successful The Mask (1994) alongside Jim Carrey.

She continued to rack up box office hits with major movies like Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Something About Mary, My Best Friend's Wedding and the remake of Charlie's Angels.

And after starring in the 2014 comedy Annie, opposite Jamie Foxx, Rose Byrne and Bobby Cannavale, she simply disappeared. We smelled something when, four years later, in 2018, he confirmed the abandonment of his career and was simply dedicated to living and enjoying his family.

“It's funny that no one knows what I'm doing. My time is all mine. I'm not selling any movies, and since I'm not selling anything, I don't have to give anyone anything. I'm living my life," said Cameron Diaz.

And what do you spend your free time doing? Well, despite the fact that it was rumoured that she would return to the cinema at the hands of Marvel, the star has reinvented herself as a businesswoman by creating the Avaline wine line with Katherine Power.

As explained on its website, it is not a wine to use, as it is made with "grapes from organic crops without pesticides, without artificial additives and vegan-friendly". A new life in which he has confessed that he no longer cares about his appearance and that he does not even wash his face.

That is what is called going from one extreme to another.
