In a preview clip from her upcoming appearance on the Rachael Ray Show on Sept. 26, the Bad Teacher actress revealed how her husband helped or at least attempted to plan her star-studded 50th birthday celebration which took place last month, telling the host that Madden, 43, “loves a celebration.”
“And when we first met our first year together, he threw me three surprise birthdays for one birthday,” Diaz, 50, shared, adding that she jokingly said to Madden, “Would you please stop doing this?!”
She continued, “This year, because it was my 50th, he was very much like ‘We have to do something’ and I couldn’t commit.”
“…He’s like, ‘So what are we doing for your birthday?’ and I’m like ‘Let me get back to you,’ I could see the panic coming in on his face a week beforehand,” she explained. “He was trying so hard, but I could see he was so panicked.”
“So, we just ended up doing dinner with a group of friends who were in town last minute and just had a nice little chill dinner,” she added. “It was really nice.”
A source told PEOPLE the Charlie’s Angels alum celebrated her milestone birthday on August 30th at Nobu in Malibu. There with her for her special day were husband Madden, Adele, sister-in-law Nicole Richie, Zoe Saldaña, her The Other Woman costar Leslie Mann and Mann’s husband Judd Apatow, all in a private area of the restaurant for the occasion.
“Cameron was wonderful. She had the best time celebrating her birthday,” said the source at the time. “She was laughing and very much enjoying herself. She kept hugging Benji and her friends. They celebrated for hours.”ORDER A COPY OF ROB’S NEW BEST SELLING BOOK! Called “America’s Number ONE Gossip Columnist” by The National Enquirer.
