Cameron may have been mentioned in “Rolling Stone” founder Jann Wenner’s upcoming memoir, but not for the right reasons.
Jann Wenner founded “Rolling Stone” magazine in 1967, focusing on music, politics, and pop culture. Wenner also used to own the magazines “US Weekly” and “Men’s Journal.”
Wenner shares an incident from the mid-2000s about a specific actress in his upcoming memoir, “Like a Rolling Stone.” Wenner was still the owner of US Weekly at the time, and the story revolved around one of the magazine’s early scoops about “an actress smooching Justin Timberlake on a surfboard.”
According to Page Six, this line struck a chord with actress Cameron Diaz in a 2006 New York Post article, which stated:
“they also managed to steal a kiss or two while frolicking together in the deep-blue Hawaiian waters.”
Timberlake was on vacation in Hawaii with the “Bad Teacher” actress at the time.
While Wenner did not specifically mention the actress, he does describe the blind item as “unpleasant to deal with” and allegedly told a magazine staffer, “I hope you get cancer.” The magazine employee in question could be from US Weekly.
The former Hollywood A-list couple’s relationship began in 2003, when Timberlake and Diaz met at the Kids Choice Awards and sparked dating rumors shortly afterwards. In January 2007, the two announced their separation.
While it is unknown whether the former actress ever displayed diva tendencies, she has been the subject of numerous headlines due to her early retirement from acting.
Diaz made her acting debut in the 1994 film “The Mask” and starred in the blockbuster “Charlie’s Angels” alongside Drew Barrymore and Lucy Liu. In 2018, the actress announced her retirement from acting.
Diaz’s early retirement from acting paved the way for her to pursue a career as a lifestyle author. She has authored bestselling books such as “The Body Book: Feed, Move, Understand, and Love Your Amazing Body” and “The Longevity Book.”
However, the veteran actress announced her “unretirement” this year to star in a Netflix film with Jamie Foxx.
