Cameron Diaz dreams of swapping Hollywood for a simple life on a farm so she can get back to basics and grow her own food.

The Charlie’s Angels star, who has travelled the world as a model and actress, is considering retiring to the countryside for a year to learn how to grow crops and raise livestock.

Diaz admits she has already begun researching agriculture and is waiting for the right moment to step out of the spotlight.

She tells Britain’s Daily Telegraph, “I don’t want to say I’ve seen it all because this world is so vast, but I’ve always been on the move, and what I’d love to do is spend a whole year in one place, actually on a farm, where I get to raise my own crops and my own livestock and for once in my life see just how life is cultivated.

“It’s almost like this primal thing. I really just feel like the earth is where we all come from, and we have nothing if we don’t have soil and water and sun. I’ve read a lot about agriculture, and I feel the need inside me to work with the earth in some way. I guess it would be like a painter having to paint.”
