Blair back­tracks on Diaz ‘re­tire­ment’

Toronto Sun - - SHOWBIZ - Selma Blair

Ac­tress is back­track­ing on com­ments she made on Cameron Diaz’s ‘re­tire­ment’ from movies, in­sist­ing she was jok­ing.

The star re­cently told the U.K.’s Metro news­pa­per she had lunch with her The Sweet­est Thing cast­mate and sug­gested they reteam for a se­quel to the 2002 film.

“We were rem­i­nisc­ing about the film,” Selma said. “I would have liked to do a se­quel but Cameron’s re­tired from act­ing. She’s like, ‘I’m done.’”

Her re­marks sparked on­line chat­ter about the end of Diaz’s act­ing ca­reer, but now Blair is clar­i­fy­ing her com­ments on Twit­ter.

She tweeted: “Guys please, I was mak­ing a joke in an in­ter­view. CAMERON DIAZ is NOT re­tir­ing from ANY­THING.”
