Cameron Diaz was recently photographed while on a shopping run with sister-in-law Nicole Richie and her relaxed, casual appearance with her sister-in-law has put the strength of her marriage in the spotlight, especially considering the fact that her sister-in-law is reportedly experiencing marriage difficulties with her husband Joel Madden, the brother of Cameron Diaz's husband Benji (Daly Mail - May 10).
Ironically, the low-key under the radar appearance of Cameron Diaz with husband Benji and her very 'light' work schedule has many of her fans speculating that this in-demand, workaholic actress has deliberately cleared her film schedule to pursue becoming a mother similar to her good friends Drew Barrymore and Reese Witherspoon.
For most actresses, an extended period of time without an acting project might not create any significant amount of conversation among entertainment fans. However, when a popular workaholic actress such as Cameron Diaz who since 2000 has been a consistent presence on the big screen with at least two projects per year has no projects scheduled for filming after being married for one year makes the topic of whether she is planning for children a very popular water cooler debate.
The superstar actress provided many in the entertainment industry a major surprise when she married Benji Madden after a seventeen day engagement and having referred to marriage as a dying institution that was not relevant to society (Huffington Post). Now, with no films on the near horizon her schedule suggests she has another surprise in store for her fans.
Cameron Diaz may not be talking about wanting children or even trying to have children but her film schedule is suggesting very loudly that she is working on becoming the next celebrity Mom.
