Robbie Williams: How Cameron Diaz saved my relationship
ROBBIE WILLIAMS has revealed how a chance comment by Cameron Diaz led him to reunite with his future wife.
Sharing the sweet story, the singer told ITV’s Lorraine Kelly how he had split up with Ayda Field, but a night out with two Hollywood stars changed the course of his destiny.
‘I was out one evening and I was just with — name dropping, watch your feet — Drew Barrymore and Cameron Diaz, and I was talking about this girl I had just split up with,’ he said.
‘It was one of those sliding door moments where Cameron said, “It sounds as though it’s not over”, and in that moment something clicked, something changed and instantly I was like, “Yeah, I should go and marry her.”
Robbie admits he didn’t share his sudden realisation with Cameron and Drew ‘because that would have been really weird’.
Instead, he said: ‘I got in a car and went to see Ayda, knocked on the door and that was the moment I committed myself to her and she to me.’
Robbie and Ayda have been married since 2010 and have two kids, daughter Theodora and son Charlton.
