Actress Cameron Diaz has said she'd never rule out a return to acting, six years after she made her last movie appearance. 

The 47-year-old star was last seen on screen in the 2014 remake of Annie, in which she played Miss Hannigan. 

In the following years, the star, who shot to fame in Jim Carrey movie The Mask in 1994, has concentrated on family life after the birth of daughter Raddix with husband Benji Madden.

However, in an interview with make-up artist Gucci Westman about her future, the Charlie’s Angels star insisted she hasn’t fully ruled out a return to Hollywood.

"Obviously, everybody wants you to go back to acting," Westman said, to which Cameron replied: "Look, I’m never going to say 'never’. I’m not a person who says ‘never’ about anything, clearly."

Cameron’s comments come after she told InStyle magazine that she’d all but retired from the world she’d grown up in, explaining: "I started (experiencing fame) when I was 22, so 25 years ago – that’s a long time.

"The way I look at it is that I’ve given more than half of my life to the public. I feel it’s OK for me to take time for myself now to reorganise and choose how I want to come (back) into the world, if I decide to. I don’t miss performing."
