Justin Timberlake and Cameron Diaz were reunited last year on the set of Bad Teacher and of course all eyes were on them as everybody thought the collaboration would sparkle an old flame.
However, the actress says nothing went awkward and that the two exes had fun working together.
“Justin and I have always had a good laugh together, and to make a movie where we get to have a laugh together, and there really was no one else who was more perfect for this part,” she told NBC News.
Diaz, who is now in a relationship with Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez, had only words of praise for Timberlake, saying that he is “a genius comedian. . . 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.”
“He’s fr@#kin’ weird in movies. He’s so bizarre and hilarious. I say that with great respect to his character and what he’s done!” she added.
Cameron insisted “there was nothing to make” f their collaboration, as they were “[Just] two people who were working together, who just so happened to have gone out with one another at another time in our lives,” said the star.
