Cameron Diaz is putting on her thespian shoes once more!
After previously stepping away from acting, the 49-year-old star will appear alongside Jamie Foxx in a new Netflix film titled Back in Action, which Variety describes as an action-comedy.
In audio from a phone conversation shared Wednesday by Foxx, 54, the actress can be heard telling him, “I feel excited but I don’t know how to do this, you know?” before he responds, “I got somebody on the other line that can help you with this.”
Tom Brady soon joins the call, telling Diaz that Foxx told him she could use “a few tips on how to un-retire.” (Brady, 44, famously returned to the NFL in March, after first announcing his departure only the previous month.)
“I’m relatively successful at un-retiring,” Brady quipped.
Diaz also shared the audio clip to her Instagram Story, writing, “@iamjamiefoxx only you could get me back in action! I can’t frickin wait it’s gonna be a blast!”
Diaz — who is married to Benji Madden and has a 2-year-old daughter, Raddix, with the Good Charlotte rocker — stepped away from acting following her performance as Miss Hannigan in 2014’s Annie.
While appearing on Kevin Hart’s Peacock talk show, Hart to Heart, last year, the Charlie’s Angels star said she started to realize around age 40 that there were “so many parts of my life … that I wasn’t touching” or “managing.”
Despite admitting she loves acting, Diaz added later in the conversation that she wanted to incorporate more simplicity into her everyday.
“I just really wanted to make my life manageable by me,” she explained. “My routine in a day is literally what I can manage to do by myself.”
