In the past few decades, we watched Cameron Diaz in a bunch of projects such as Being John Malkovich, Something About Mary, and My Best Friend’s Wedding. She used to be one of the best-paid actresses on the planet and wrote two health and wellness books. Diaz has since retired from acting and focuses on her family. She and Benji Madden have a child together. These days, she is also busy with her work as a philanthropist.

Hayden Christiansen

Apparently, Hayden Christiansen got his start by accompanying his older sister to interviews at acting agencies. He eventually landed a job to do commercials. Of course, we all know for playing Anakin Skywalker in the Star Wars franchise. He eventually left acting and bought a farm in Ontario in 2007. The following year, he did the renovations himself and studied crops, livestock, and agricultural machinery on his own. It is neat to hear that he also has a farmer’s clothing line with RW&Co.
