Cameron Diaz is reportedly engaged to boyfriend Benji Madden.
The 43-year-old “Sex Tape” actress started dating the Good Charlotte rocker in May, with insiders revealing they are ready to take their romance to the next level after dating for seven months.
A source revealed of the relationship, “Everyone thinks it’s wild but are so happy for them. Benji always tends to fall in love easily, but this time it’s for real and he landed a great girl. They obviously both make each other incredibly happy and there’s nothing better than that.”
The actress recently sparked engagement rumors by sporting a prominent gold wedding-style band complete with sparkling diamond.
Cameron previously admitted that she learned one major lesson from previous relationships – don’t keep making the same mistake when picking a man.
She said, “Here’s the thing. You make the same mistake over and over again until you learn your lesson. We girls sometimes do the thing where we pick the same person over and over again – they look and seem different, but deep down, they’re the same. And that’s on us.”D
Diaz said for a relationship to work that both partners need to want the same thing at the same time or the romance is doomed.
She told Cosmopolitan magazine, “You have to find someone in the same place as you are. Timing is everything. If you get into a relationship where you want something the guy doesn’t want, it’s never going to work. You’re never going to get him to be in that place. No matter how old you are, finding the guy who’s in the same place as you are and wants to show up is the only way a relationship works, period.”
The “Something About Mary” star has certainly had lots of dating experience, previously in relationships with Justin Timberlake, Matt Dillon, and Jared Leto.
In August, Benji Madden spoke to People magazine at Alt 98.7 Penthouse Party at Hollywood Tower about his new love and how their relationship has influenced his work.
Madden said, “I’m really happy right now. It’s same for any man, no matter what they do. It drives you”.
He adds, “All people, I think, react the same way to the same situations … like we were saying with Joel being a father … we all want to be the best we can be.”
