Robbie Williams has revealed Cameron Diaz encouraged him to rekindle his romance with Ayda Field.

The couple split three times before they eventually settled down and got married in August 2010.

Speaking on their new podcast (Staying) At Home With The Williamses, Robbie recalled going on a night out after splitting from Ayda for the third time.

He said: “We were at the Chateau Marmont and we’d split up and I was chatting away with people and I started to chat with Drew Barrymore and Cameron Diaz and I started to espouse about this brilliant person I’d just ended a relationship with…”

“And Cameron Diaz said, ‘It doesn’t sound like that one’s over’. And in that moment – I don’t know why it was – the universe went, ‘Go to Ayda. Be with her. Marry her’.”

Ayda then added: “Thank god for Cameron Diaz by the way. Next time I see Cameron Diaz I’m going to make out with her!”

“Can you imagine if Cameron had never done that? Imagine if you had never had that conversation?”


During the episode, Robbie also admitted he was on drugs when they first met.

Ayda said: “You were on drugs, you were high as a kite,” and Robbie replied: “The drugs just fill in all the blanks. I took drugs as medication because I felt socially awkward.”

Robbie and Ayda tied the knot in August 2010, and the couple share four kids together – Teddy, 7, Charlie, 5, Coco, 22 months, and Beau, six months.
