Actor Cameron Diaz seems to have moved on and gotten over her famous split with actor-musician Justin Timberlake five years ago. The 38-year-old, who plays a self-centred, mean and sluggish teacher opposite the Sexy Back hitmaker in their latest flick, Bad Teacher, can’t stop raving about the Timberlake.
“Justin is amazing and so funny and just so talented,” says Diaz, who is currently dating baseball star Alex Rodriguez.
“I have seen him do brilliant work on Saturday Night Live and I know how funny he is and, and he was just so perfect for this part,” adds the leggy actor.
Throwing light on her much talked about part in the film that opens in India today, Diaz says, “She isn’t aggressively mean — she just thinks she’s above it all. She has no passion for teaching, no desire for the kids to learn anything.”
And what about all the risqué outfits that she wears in the movie? “I wanted her to be the sort of girl who cares about the way she looks more than anything ... Elizabeth is not a hard worker, but she knows how to work it and she’s a piece of work. She shows up for a car wash in a pair of really short shorts and heels and a shirt tied waist up. It all comes pretty easily to her, though shocks others,” she says.
