She's just aged out of the ''Hot girl'' roles. And she wasnt the best actress to start. We could list dozen of girls like that
Yeah happens to a lot of women in the industry I'm sure. You get the odd actress that can keep working like Jennifer Aniston and Sandra Bullock but I think that has a lot to do with them having their own production companies.

I know Diaz married a while ago, doesn't seem like she's made a film since then, so I suppose she's retired for now. Though you never know if she'll make a comeback or not, much like Michelle Pfieffer who disappeared off our screens to raise her kids and then came back with Stardust and is even in the Marvel cinematic universe now as the original Wasp.

Yeah starting families is a part of it too

I think Pfieffer and Bullock are good actresses though and could do a bit more than play ''Hot girl'' even though they played a fair share of those roles. But that is besides the point

Tom Hanks hasn't disappeared, but for years and years he was everywhere, in Big movies all the time, winning all the awards, and then all of a sudden...... when's the last time you saw him in the lead role of a big movie?

They are decent actresses true though Diaz has played more than the hot girl roles too, she was OK in Any given Sunday and was pretty good in Being John Malkovich, I think she tried the break the hot girl image earlier in her career with these roles but fact is when you're a pretty blonde Hollywood tends to only give you certain types of roles and other than the Shrek movies that's really the only type of roles she got later in her career.

Other than the Toy Story movies I think the last film I saw him in the lead was Sully that film about the plane ditching into the Hudson river. He's not as high profile as he once was. I think the movie industry has changed it's no longer about the big star headlining the movie anymore, you now have more ensemble casts and it's more the story that drives the hype and sales, which is why you get so many remakes, reboots and films made from other media, such as books, video games and TV shows or anything with an already established following.

He was in the Somali pirate movie too, which wasn't bad. But yeah..... aside from Toy Story (and Toy Story 3 was almost a decade ago)....... haven't seen him much this last 10 years. And when he does appear, it seems that he deliberately chooses smaller movies.
