Cameron Diaz wants to ‘normalize separate bedrooms’ for married couples – and she may be on to something!
Diaz, 51, reflected on what she previously thought was her dream situation of living together during an appearance on the Tuesday, December 19, episode of Molly Sims And Emese Gormley‘Lipstick on the Rim’ podcast.
“For me, I would literally say, I have my house, you have yours. In the middle we have the family house. I’m going to sleep in my room. Just go to sleep in your room. I’m fine,” Diaz said after one of the ladies mentioned that her husband snores. “And in the middle we have the bedroom where we can meet for our relations.”
This saw a huge turnout from the hosts and Diaz’s Avaline wine business partner, Katharina Macht, who also guested on the episode. The ladies gushed with their thoughts, even joking that Diaz shouldn’t have shared her attractive take on marriage publicly.
“I already said it,” Diaz shrugged before noting that her opinion had changed, “Besides, I don’t feel that way right now because my husband is so great. I said that before I got married.”
Diaz married Good Charlotte guitarist Benji Madden in 2015, and they welcomed their daughter, Raddixin January 2020.
The Other woman actress isn’t shy about the fact that Madden, 44, has changed her outlook on life.
“[Marriage] was the biggest thing I did in my 40s, and it opened me up in different ways,” Diaz shared Harper’s Bazaar in May 2016. “It’s pretty amazing. I didn’t think it was something I would do, and I don’t know if I would have done it if I hadn’t met my husband. It was a surprise.”
While Diaz was linked to many A-list men in the early 2000s, including Justin Timberlake, Matt Dillon And Alex Rodriguezshe said that “no one compares” to Madden.
“Everything else washes and slides away,” she said Andy Cohen during an interview in 2016. “You realize, ‘Oh yeah, this is what the real deal is. This is what real love is. This is what true dedication and commitment is. This is the person you build your life with.” … And I know this is special.”
Needless to say, the feeling is absolutely mutual. Madden praised his “true love” via Instagram in 2018.
“So many things that make me so proud of you and how special you are🌹Thank you for being the best friend and partner to me and on this journey of marriage,” Madden wrote at the time. “The way you live every day, and your compassion for the world shines through [sic] in your eyes and you inspire me to want to be the best man I can be in this life. You are the realest. I am so grateful to be yours, Always&Forever, and to call you my One&Only. True love❤️.”
