Cameron Diaz on Working with Ex-BF Justin Timberlake: 'It was a Blast'

Published
Former flamesCameron DiazandJustin Timberlake have reunited for the big screen in the soon-to-be released comedy 'Bad Teacher.' ET's Chris Jacobs caught up with Diaz and Timberlake to get the inside scoop on what it was like to get together and work together on the film following their 2007 break-up.

After four years of being together romantically, you would think that a professional relationship would be difficult. However, as Timberlake explains, his past with Diaz was "a benefit in making the movie" because of the trust they built with each other. He says, "we still think of the world of each other and had a great experience together, and now we have a great experience together in a different way."
Justin tells Chris they surprisingly "still like each other" and "share a sense of humor," so he feels "honored to be a part of [the film] because [Diaz] is a classic, iconic, comedic actor."
Cameron had equally nice things to say of Timberlake, calling the on-set experience a "blast." She explains, "you know when you're adults it can happen, when people move on in their lives." She says they "had such a great time making this movie" and wouldn't have had as much fun as they did if they were to focus on the end of their romantic relationship.
