Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden had incredibly successful careers in Hollywood but have taken a giant step back from the spotlight recently as they focus on their marriage and parenting their daughter.
While the couple is notoriously private and enjoys keeping their daughter away from the public, they recently shocked fans by stepping out in public and posing for pictures together at the event.
Madden shared photos of him and Diaz as he and some others launched a streaming service where users can stream live entertainment any time of the day or night. Fans were shocked to see them.
While many fans were delighted that Madden had allowed them a glimpse into their lives, others were confused by their relationship status and shared as much in the comments under the post.
What Did Fans Say?
Madden shared a photo carousel showing photos of himself and his wife, himself and his twin brother, and himself and others who had worked on the streaming service. Many famous faces were present, but fans were focused on something else.
Many fans were shocked that Diaz and Madden were still together, saying they had thought they had broken up like many others in Hollywood. Another thing that confused fans was the resemblance between Madden and his twin brother. One fan shared:
“I’m so confused right now.”
Others clarified that Madden had a twin brother and were both in the pictures but that Madden was married to Diaz and his twin brother was married to actress and daughter of Lionel Richie, Nicole Richie.
Some fans who already knew of Madden’s twin brother said they loved the Madden brothers and their wives. One person even found it interesting that both brothers were attracted to the same types of people.
What Is Madden and Diaz’s Relationship Like?
When she met her husband, Diaz revealed that she had first met his twin brother Richie. They were later all at an event together, and Diaz noticed Madden walking toward her.

Although she immediately found him attractive, it was only when she got to know him a little more that she knew there was something special about him and considered him a “hidden gem” in her life.
She said she did not want to settle.
The couple tied the knot at their home in 2015. It was a star-studded event, with Madden’s close friend and sister-in-law Nicole Richie there, but the couple kept things simple, with the celebration being under a tent in their backyard where their loved ones could enjoy the evening.
Their wedding came after only nine months of dating, and Diaz, who was 42 then, said she was glad she had waited for Mr. Right to come into her life before she tied the knot with just anyone. She said she did not want to settle.

Madden then made guests laugh when his wedding speech contained information about what he asked to be in control of. He asked Diaz if he could handle the cake and the music, which she agreed to.
There was only one mishap on the big day; their five-year-old ringbearer dropped the rings, and Madden and his brother had to get down on their hands and knees to find them. Madden’s brother’s father-in-law, Lionel Richie, performed at their wedding as the couple celebrated their union.
Now, Nicole Richie and Diaz are close girlfriends and sisters-in-law and have sometimes been seen together shopping or running errands. This year, as Diaz and Madden shared their eighth wedding anniversary, Madden shared the occasion on Instagram, talking about how much he loved his wife. They, indeed, are a delightful couple.
