Cameron was a guest on model Naomi’s No Filter YouTube series, and talked about her decision to step away from her hugely successful movie career six years ago. 

Asked by Naomi if she would consider a return to acting, the actress insisted she hadn’t ruled it out, teasing: ‘I’ll come back and people will be like there’s a new older actress on the scene!… You should never say never” 

In the meantime little Raddix is keeping the star busy, as she gushed to her friend: ‘It’s the happiest time of my life’.

Rewinding to the start of her acting career, Cameron revealed she was nearly passed over for the role of Tina Carlyle in The Mask, which would prove to be her launching pad into super stardom.

It was Cameron’s first acting job after five years as a model. ‘I got The Mask when I turned 21 and that was it,’ she explained of her rise to fame, but admitted she nearly didn’t land the part. 

‘They were talking to Anna Nicole Smith and you know the studio really wanted her cause I hadn’t really done anything.’

‘I think maybe five or ten days before filming they said yes to me,’ she revealed, adding that she took acting lessons after being cast.
