The 45-year-old actress stepped into the spotlight at Saturday night’s bash alongside her husband, Good Charlotte guitarist Benji Madden. She turned heads in a crimson sequin wrap gown with a velvet bow and plunging neckline by Jenny Packham, along with a black bag with chain strap over her shoulder and dangling gold earrings. Madden, 39, donned a suit and bow tie in all black.
“I can’t say whether or not she will go back to being a full-time actress, but for now she has other interests, causes she believes in, and time to pursue them,” the insider said. “Cameron has made a wonderful life for herself. Marriage agrees with her.”

Diaz feels “very fulfilled” by her private life with Madden, added the source.
“He came along at the right time in her life, and she knows she made the right decision to be with him,” the source explained. “Cameron has never had a romance like this one where it is feels like even ground.”
Her lower profile caused Selma Blair to suggest in a recent interview that her The Sweetest Thing costar is “done” with show business, though Blair quickly clarified her comments on Twitter, writing, “CAMERON DIAZ is NOT retiring from ANYTHING.”

In recent years, Diaz has shifted focus from acting to wellness ambassador. In 2013, she released the bestseller The Body Book, followed by 2016’s The Longevity Book, in which she shared her secrets to aging beautifully.
“Her years with Benji have been enlightening for her,” said another Diaz source. “She has become a new person with more self-confidence and grounding. Cameron needed something different in her life, more substance and a relationship where she felt loved.”
The couple “would like to have a family,” the pal added. “They are very happy and enjoying their lives together.”
The actress turned 45 last August and received a sweet Instagram dedication from Madden. “Happy Birthday to my Beautiful Wife. I feel like I am the LUCKIEST guy ALIVE,” Madden wrote alongside a photo of him and Diaz enjoying a romantic boat ride.
