Cameron Diaz talks meeting 'hidden gem' Benji Madden, explains why she isn't attracted to twin


Cameron Diaz spoke about meeting her husband, Benji Madden, during Monday’s episode of the Anna Faris is Unqualified podcast. 

During her appearance on the program, the 49-year-old performer spoke about various aspects of her relationship and pointed out that she saw many differences between her spouse and his twin brother, Joel. 

The retired actress and the Good Charlotte frontman notably tied the knot in 2015 after having dated for just under a year.

During the conversation, Diaz pointed out that she had initially encountered her now-husband through his relatives. 

‘I met mine through my now sister-in-law and brother-in-law, I met them first and then they didn’t set us up but we were in the same room because of them, and then we found each other,’ she said.

The Shrek voice actress recalled that she ‘was like, “How come I didn’t see him before?” which her business partner Katherine Power noted was ‘funny because you saw his twin brother.’

The entrepreneur then expressed that, although Benji and Joel were similar in appearance, they each possessed separate qualities and their own personalities.

‘They’re not the same, they’re so different. Even though they’re twins, they’re very, very different obviously,’ she said.

Diaz went on to describe her first encounter with her now-husband, and she recalled that she was taken aback by his attractiveness. 

She stated that she ‘saw him walking towards me and I was like, “Huh, he’s hot, I haven’t seen him before.”‘

The Charlie’s Angel actress then noted that she eventually became smitten with Madden when she understood that he possessed various attractive qualities.

She recalled that ‘when I saw…who he was, that’s what made me really be like, “Oh you, you’re special, you’re the guy, you’re the hidden gem in my life.”‘

Prior to becoming involved with her current husband, Diaz was romantically involved with various other individuals within the entertainment industry.

The actress began a long-term relationship with Jared Leto in the late 1990s, although the two eventually split up in 2003.

That same year, she became romantically involved with singer Justin Timberlake, and they went strong for an extended period of time while occasionally fielding rumors about an engagement.

The happy couple shocked many when they announced that they had become engaged that same December after just several months of being in a relationship.

The two later made their union official during a ceremony that was held at the actress’ Beverly Hills home in 2015.

They then waited for four years before they welcomed their daughter Raddix, aged one, into their family.
