In a personal essay for InStyle, the 46-year-old reveals why she's had a bit of an acting hiatus.
"I started [experiencing fame] when I was 22, so 25 years ago — that’s a long time. The way I look at it is that I’ve given more than half of my life to the public," Diaz penned.
"I feel it’s OK for me to take time for myself now to reorganize and choose how I want to come [back] into the world."
The wife of Benji Madden added, "I’ve done so much, I feel fulfilled with the adventures I’ve sought out in my life. I’m in a great place."
Speaking of Madden, Diaz called marrying him "was the best thing that ever happened to me. "
