We don't think people would have been as interested as they were in the shooting of Bad Teacher if it wasn't for the reunion of Cameron Diaz and Justin Timberlake. It was the first time the pair seemingly had been in the same place together since their split years previously and all eyes were peeled to see if any drama would erupt between the two on set.
Alas, the pair happen to be very mature adults and didn't let their former romance hinder their work on the movie. In fact, according to Cameron, who was on hand at CinemaCon to received her Female Star of the Year Award this week, siad it was very easy for her to work with Justin. She explained:
"No, it's great. 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…He's frickin' weird in movies. He's so bizarre and hilarious. I say that with great respect to his character and what he's done!…[We 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. It really wasn't a big deal, we had a great time and did the job, and we do what all actors do afterward: We all go our separate ways. We'll all come back together for the premiere."
Oh, we're looking forward to that premiere. How friendly will you all be then? Will you each bring your significant others? Will you pose for pictures together?
Can we all say, "AWKWARD?!" Ha!
