Cameron says that she feels 'fulfilled with the adventures I've sought out in my life.'

She said: 'I'm in a great place, and the world is so different now too. The mid-1990s are an era that will never exist again. I'm just so grateful that I got to witness and partake in it.'

Since then, Cameron has starred in a slew of films including: 'My Best Friend's Wedding, There's Something About Mary, Being John Malkovich, Any Given Sunday, Charlie's Angels, Vanilla Sky, The Sweetest Thing, The Holiday, What Happens In Vegas, My Sister's Keeper, Knight And Day and many more.

Since retiring from acting, Cameron said she thinks it's 'fun to just not have anybody know what I'm up to. Because my time is all mine.'
