If you remember, Cameron Diaz and Justin Timberlake dated a few years back. And now, many were interested in how they’d work together for their new movie, BAD TEACHER.
Well according to Diaz in an interview with PEOPLE, everything “really wasn’t a big deal”, and the two “had a great time” together:
“He’s a genius comedian, everybody knows…”Saturday Night Live’ and all the stuff that he’s done over the years, he’s clearly talented. We went for the best person for the job, and it just so happened that it was him. And he delivers.”
Diaz said that no matter what happened, it was great to just work on something with Timberlake where all they had to do was laugh:
“Justin and I have always had a good laugh together, and to make a movie where we get to have a laugh together…There really was no one else who was more perfect for this part. That’s why he got the part.”
Timberlake and Diaz split in 2007 after four years of dating. Timberlake recently split from longtime girlfriend Jessica Biel, while Diaz’s relationship with New York Yankees star Alex Rodriguez is going strong.
