Jamie Foxx and Tom Brady pull Cameron Diaz out of retirement

Cameron Diaz pulls a Tom Brady. And Brady agrees.

Netflix announced Wednesday that Diaz is “not officially retiring” to star alongside Jamie Foxx in an upcoming film for the streaming giant. The project, aptly titled Back in Action, will be the actor’s first feature film role since 2014.

To help Diaz transition out of retirement, Foxx surprised his co-star with a call from none other than Brady – who has recently and famously returned to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers less than two months after announcing his retirement from the NFL.

“Cameron, what’s going on? It’s Foxx,” says the Spider-Man: No Way Home actor in one shot of their conversation, which he shared on social media on Wednesday.

“Thanks for the call,” Diaz replies. “I’m so scared right now. I kind of walk up and down the room.”

After telling Foxx that she’s “excited” to return to acting, Diaz admits on the tape that she “don’t know how to do it.” Luckily for the Charlie’s Angels star, Foxx reveals he has “someone on the other line who can help.”

Enter Brady, who is happy to offer his services as a retired professional.

“I spoke to Jamie and he said you need some tips on how to lift retirement,” Brady Diaz says during the call. “I’m relatively successful at retiring.”

“Honestly, just what I needed,” replies Diaz.

The audio clip ends with Foxx jumping off the line to let Diaz and Brady “entertain.”

“Cameron I hope you’re not mad I included this but there’s no turning back now,” Foxx captioned his Wednesday post. “Had to call the GOAT to bring back another GOAT. @Cameron Diaz and I are BACK IN ACTION – our new film with @NetflixMovie. Production starts later this year!!”

It’s unclear if Brady – who signed a production deal with Netflix this spring to develop comedy specials for the streamer – is involved in the project. The action comedy will be directed by Seth Gordon and co-executed by Foxx, who previously worked with Diaz on Any Given Sunday (1999) and Annie (2014).

“Only [Foxx] might get me back in action!!” Diaz wrote on her Instagram story. “I can’t wait, it’s going to be a great time.”

In a joint interview for Vanity Fair in 2020, Diaz Gwyneth Paltrow explained why she decided to retire from Hollywood, citing long hours on set and personal relationships she “needed to fix.”

“It’s so intense working at this level and being so public and showing yourself out there,” Diaz said.

“There’s always a lot of energy coming at you when you’re really visible as an actor, making press and putting yourself out there. I am sensitive to some energies and not to others, but I can feel the overwhelming energy of the attention being given to me. I stopped, I really looked at my life and I saw what I had been [missing].”
