Playing How Benji Madden Convinced Cameron Diaz to Settle Down

"I think she was ready," co-host Aisha Tyler said.

"I think it was a level of maturity on both parts," said co-host Julie Chen. "And the right chemistry between two people."

Some of Cameron's past suitors have included Matt Dillon, who she dated for three years, Jared Leto, who she dated for four years, Justin Timberlake, who she also dated for four years and Alex Rodriguez, who she dated for a year and a half.

A-Rod had high praise for Cameron in 2012 after their 2011 breakup.

"I will tell you about C.D.: She's probably one of the greatest human beings I've ever met, and just an amazing light," said the star athlete.

Cameron, 42, and Benji, 35, exchanged vows at an intimate, top-secret wedding ceremony held at Cameron's Beverly Hills home after getting engaged in December. Guests reportedly included Cameron's sister Chimene, Reese Witherspoon, Samantha Ronson and Gwyneth Paltrow.

The bride reportedly tried to throw the press off the trail by telling her neighbors that she was having a pre-Golden Globes party.

Aisha told ET that having the wedding at home helped keep the ceremony private.

"[That] was smart," she said. "You don't do it at a hotel. You don't do it with an event planner, and it's easier and it's sweet."

Prior to the wedding, Cameron's Charlie's Angels co-star and bridesmaid Drew Barrymore threw a bridal shower at her Hollywood Hills home.

This marks the first marriage for both the actress and Good Charlotte singer.
