Imagine breaking up with your ex, moving on with your life, then having to spend months together shooting a movie which involved a few sex scenes. Awkward calling on line one.
That’s exactly what happened to Cameron Diaz and Justin Timberlake. They dated for over four years before finally calling it quits in 2007. Just weeks later Justin was spotted with Jessica Biel and they began seriously dating. You know that had to sting.
Cam and JT keep talking about how great friends they are in interviews promoting the movie, but no matter what they say, shooting a sex scene with an ex is uncomfortable.
‘Bad Teacher’ director Jake Kasdan tells People magazine it was the "most uncomfortable sex scene in history."
And Cam agrees. "Yes, yes. It was just [an] absurdity, a form of hilarity for all of us involved. We went to work that day and said, what time do we start being ridiculous? … Eight o'clock? Perfect."
So how did they pull off the sex scenes and not avoid each other in an uncomfortable way the next day? "I guess the real truth is that they're good friends … They're buddies,” the director added.
It’s still a little weird if you ask me. But than again, I don’t get paid millions to make out with hot guys in movies.
