While speaking in a panel discussion at Gwyneth Paltrow‘s Goop Wellness Summit on Saturday, June 10, the 44-year-old star said the excessive traveling required for her job has led her to significantly cut back on her acting roles in recent years.

During the Goop event, Cameron also opened up about her two-year marriage to rocker Benji Madden, 38. When asked by her friend Gwyneth why she waited until age 41 to tie the knot, the Charlie’s Angels star replied, “I think it’s a matter of I just hadn’t met my husband, you know?”

“I had boyfriends before. And there’s a really, really distinct difference between husbands and boyfriends. And I have a husband who is just my partner in life and in everything,” she continued. “Talk about two very different people! We are so different from one another, but we share the same values — we’re totally two peas in a pod. We are both just weird enough for each other.”
