Cameron Diaz just did what Cameron Diaz never thought she would do.


So, having spent many years avoiding marriage, Cameron Diaz just got hitched to one of those Madden brothers (Benji to be exact).

The 42-year-old Hollywood actress told her 127 guests she waited so long for marriage “because I didn’t want to settle.”

Good thing she waited too: “Now I got the best man ever. My special man. He’s mine.”

The Daily Mail have revealed Benji joked, “I only asked to be in control of two things: The music and the cake.”

The day didn’t go off without any glitches though. The lights apparently flickered out in the venue 10 seconds before Cam’s bridal entrance, and she was heard cursing until the problem fixed itself up five minutes later. Typical Diaz.

Sparrow Madden, son of Benji’s twin brother Joel and his wife Nicole Richie, was also apparently the official ring bearer. The five-year-old, guests say, dropped the ring in front of the audience, making guests laugh while the Maddens got on their hands and knees to find it.

The star studded guest list included Drew Barrymore, Gwyneth Paltrow, Reese Witherspoon, Samantha Ronson, Toni Collette, Nancy Juvonen, Judd Apatow, Leslie Mann, and Benji’s grandmother ‘Jesse.’

Ryan Adams serenaded the pair, while Lionel Richie performed songs on the piano.

Mamamia previously reported:

Cameron Diaz just married a Madden brother.

Yes, married.

Yes, one of those scruffy but kind of endearing in a gruff kind of way Madden twins. The “Benji” one, to be precise. The unlikely couple tried to fool everyone by saying they were hosting an “early Golden Globes party” at CamCam’s place… Nice try, Diaz. We can smell celebrity matrimony from 12,066 kilometres away.


Cam and her new husband have just released a statement about their marriage:

“We couldn’t be happier to begin our new journey together surrounded by our closest family and friends,” the couple said.

Sure, the Madden-Diaz engagement has lasted only slightly longer than their relationship. And yeah, Cameron Diaz has spent the better part of a decade saying she didn’t want to get married. Yet, here she is, betrothed to one half of the moderately successful Madden Brothers duo.

42-year-old Cameron and 35-year-old Benji Madden started dating in May. Here are their faces, next to one another. Benji is the one in the hat.

In the past 24 hours, these two famous people have held an “intimate rehearsal dinner” and a “source” has “leaked” their “wedding plans”. Which means Benji’s bro, Joel Madden (famous for chewing on a toothpick on The Voice Australia), has probably been doing wheelies in the driveway and waiting with the rest of the world to see if Cam’s dress is a midriff.

This is actually the only official photograph Benji and Cam have consented to. And it’s a random blonde girl sandwich.

And in case the nuptials of Cameron Diaz make you want to look at her face and body, here she is standing with them on display. Squint to see her ring.

And so, on this day, solid ten Cameron Diaz married a common rock musician, shocking not just the world but her own goddamn self.
