Cameron Diaz says she "couldn't imagine" returning to acting – at least not right now.

The 48-year-old hasn't appeared in a film since the release of Annie in 2014 and told SiriusXM's Bruce Bozzi on Thursday it also has to do with where she's at in her life right now.

"I'm never going to say never about anything in life. I'm just not that person," she said, talking about a potential comeback. "So will I ever make a movie again? I'm not looking to. But will I? I don't know. I have no idea."

The Charlie's Angels star, who quietly welcomed baby girl Raddix with husband Benji Madden a year ago, added: "I couldn't imagine, being a mom now, where I'm at as a mother with my child at her first year, to have to be on a movie set that takes 14 hours, 16 hours of my day away from my child. I just couldn't."

She said: "I wouldn't have been the mom that I am now had I chosen to do that at any other time in my life."
