Cameron Diaz is notoriously private when it comes to her love life, but the newlywed is clearly feeling the love in her latest interviews, spilling the sweetest details on her new husband, Good Charlotte guitarist Benji Madden.
Speaking to Andy Cohen on Sirius FM, Cameron told listeners that when she first met Benji through her BFF Nicole Richie – Nicole is married to Benji’s brother, Joel, FYI – she thought he was ‘super hot. It was one of those things where everyone tells you, ‘You just know when you know’ I was like, 'What does that mean? Oh, I get it. You just know when you know'. Like you're my husband’.
Aww! The pair might have been swept up in a whirlwind romance, but it definitely wasn’t the 18 days that was originally reported. According to Cameron, they wed after two or three months of dating, making the nuptials 9 months after the couple were first introduced.
We still don’t have details on Cameron Diaz’s wedding dress, but as for the Jewish ceremony? 'We got married in our living room in front of our friends and had a little party in the backyard on our tennis court’. Oh, casual. We rounded up all the details of Cameron Diaz’s wedding here, including who surprise-serenaded the happy couple.
Cameron Diaz has had long term relationships with the likes of Justin Timberlake and Jared Leto, but now that she’s a married woman, ‘nothing matters now that I have my husband. I don't even remember any of that. That's how I know he's my husband because no one compares. Everything else just washes and slips away’.
Cameron isn’t the only gushy one in this relationship, either. Benji Madden got super-cute on Cameron Diaz’s birthday, where he called himself ‘the luckiest guy alive’, and again on after the announcement of her Longevity Book, where he told the world why he ‘couldn’t be more proud of his bad ass wife’. SWEET!
