After years of searching for Mr. Right, Cameron Diaz says she found her Mr. Perfect in her husband, Good Charlotte rocker Benji Madden. In a 2019 interview with InStyle, the Hollywood star used nothing but superlatives to describe her husband. She said: “He’s the greatest person and he’s my great partner. Marriage is certainly tough and it’s a lot of work. You need someone willing to do the work with you because there is no such thing as 60-40 in marriage. It’s 50-50, period. The whole time.”
But before Diaz found her happiness with Madden, she dated a long list of men that reads like a who’s who of Hollywood’s A-list circle, including Justin Timberlake, Jared Leto, Matt Dillon and even Sean “Diddy” Combs, so Us Weekly. An insider even told the site in 2014 that Combs still considered his ex “the sexiest girl alive” and “the one who got away.” Well, if there’s another big celebrity who might be thinking the same thing, it’s British-born actor Jude Law. That’s because there were plenty of rumors suggesting that Diaz and her The Holiday co-star were more than just friends, too.
Has Cameron Diaz tried to keep her relationship with Jude Law under the radar?
Were Cameron Diaz and Jude Law there earlier? Well it depends on who you ask. In 2007, a source close to the situation told the now-defunct British newspaper The News of the World (via Hollywood.com), “Jude plans to take her on a bunch of dinner dates this week and just some time to spend hanging out. Diaz and Law really bonded while working together, but now that friendship has turned into romance.
Not only that, sources told Grazia that same year that Diaz and Law regularly call and text each other. A source even said (via the Independent), “Cameron and Jude have been spending a great deal of time together. He’s even made it a point to introduce Cameron to his children over an intimate dinner at his north London home. Cameron loved seeing that side of Jude.” As if that wasn’t enough, Diaz and Law were also spotted having a late-night dinner together in London in 2009, according to the Daily Mail.
And while there’s been much speculation about the nature of Diaz’s relationship with Law, it seems like the chemistry they had on-screen must have quickly fizzled offscreen because Diaz is headlining another high-profile relationship soon next year made.
Cameron Diaz revealed the real truth of what may have been going on
While no one really knows how serious Cameron Diaz and Jude Law might have been, stepping on the red carpet as a couple apparently wasn’t serious enough for them. That’s because Diaz made headlines back in 2010 for her romance with Alex Rodriguez, as detailed by Entertainment Tonight. In fact, Diaz was famously photographed feeding the MLB star popcorn at the 2011 Super Bowl. Additionally, she told Playboy that same year that prior to her relationship with Rodriguez, she had been self-centered for some time.
She said (via HuffPost), “Over the past three years, I’ve made a conscious decision not to be in a relationship for as long as I want. I’ve stayed away from all the traps out there that I might just fall into, something that will potentially lead me down the same path,” adding, “I can’t even count the number of times I’ve gotten on a plane for love . I’m always travelling [whispers] c**k You have to go where it is.”
That last statement may or may not describe the actual nature of Diaz’s under-the-radar relationship with Law, though her fans may never really know.
