Did Jude Law And Cameron Diaz Ever Date?

After years of searching for Mr. Right, Cameron Diaz says she found her Mr. Perfect in her husband, Good Charlotte rocker Benji Madden. In an interview with InStyle in 2019, the Hollywood star used nothing but superlatives to describe her husband. She said, "He's the greatest human being, and he's my great partner. Marriage is certainly hard, and it's a lot of work. You need somebody who's willing to do the work with you, because there's no 60-40 in marriage. It's 50-50, period. All the time."

But before Diaz found her happiness with Madden, she dated a long list of men that reads like a who's who of Hollywood's A-list circle, including Justin Timberlake, Jared Leto, Matt Dillon, and even Sean "Diddy" Combs, according to Us Weekly. One insider even told the site in 2014 that Combs still thought of his ex as "the sexiest girl in the world" and "the one who got away." Well, if there's another huge celebrity who might be thinking the same thing, it's British-born actor Jude Law. That's because there were a lot of rumors suggesting that Diaz and her "The Holiday" co-star were more than just friends, too.

Did Cameron Diaz try to keep her relationship with Jude Law under the radar?

Did Cameron Diaz and Jude Law date back in the day? Well, it depends on who you ask. Back in 2007, one source close to the situation told the now-defunct British paper The News of the World (via Hollywood.com), "Jude plans to take her on a series of dinner dates this week and just spend some time hanging out. Diaz and Law really bonded while working together but now that friendship has turned to romance." 

Not only that but sources told Grazia that same year that Diaz and Law were calling and texting each other regularly. One insider even said (via the Independent), "Cameron and Jude have spent an awful lot of time together. He even made a point of introducing Cameron to his children over an intimate dinner at his North London home. Cameron loved seeing that side of Jude." If that were not enough, Diaz and Law were also spotted going on what looked like a late-night dinner together in London in 2009, per the Daily Mail

And while there was a lot of speculation surrounding the nature of Diaz's relationship with Law, it seems like whatever chemistry they had on-screen must have quickly fizzled out off-screen because Diaz soon made headlines for another high-profile relationship the next year.

Cameron Diaz revealed the real truth of what might have been going on

While no one really knows just how serious Cameron Diaz and Jude Law might have been about one another, it seemingly wasn't serious enough for them to make red carpet appearances as a couple together. That's because Diaz made headlines for her romance with Alex Rodriguez back in 2010, as detailed by Entertainment Tonight. In fact, Diaz was famously photographed feeding the MLB star popcorn at the 2011 Super Bowl. What's more, she also told Playboy that same year that she had spent some time focusing on herself prior to her relationship with Rodriguez. 

She said (via HuffPost): "In the past three years I've made a conscious decision not to be in a relationship for as long as I want. I've stayed away from all the traps out there for me to just fall into something that will potentially lead me down the same road," adding, "I can't even count how many times I've gotten on a plane for love. I'm always traveling for [whispers] c**k. You've got to go where it is."

That last statement may or may not describe the actual nature of Diaz's under-the-radar relationship with Law, although her fans might never really know.
