During the call, Diaz made a point of expressing how troubled she was about making a potential announcement.

She stated: ‘I’m so anxious right now, I’m pacing the room…I don’t know how to do this, you know?’ 

The Django Unchained star then brought in the 44-year-old star quarterback, who previously went back-and-forth about ending his career, to give the actress a few pointers. 

‘I was talking to Jamie and he said you needed a few tips on how to un-retire. I’m relatively successful at un-retiring,’ he stated.
