LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Cameron Diaz might be getting down and dirty with Justin Timberlake in the upcoming comedy “Bad Teacher,” but the actress told Access Hollywood their intimate scenes were all about the laughs.
“That was called a safe sex PSA!” Cameron told Access’ Shaun Robinson at the movie’s junket over the weekend when asked about the comedic sex scenes.
The 38-year-old actress said she was glad to film the movie’s racy scenes – which shows the pair getting busy fully clothed – with someone who has been a part of her life.
“You already know what the situation is and there’s total safety in that and the comfort in that,” the actress told Shaun. “It wouldn’t have been the same had it been some dude I just met like three months before and was kind of flirty with, the idea of possibly doing it without my jeans on. You know what I mean? So that would have been awkward and weird.”
Cameron said she and Justin were able to keep their sense of humor about their intimate scenes.
“There was a lot of laughter. We had a lot of fun doing that because it’s just so absurd. And we committed to making it sort of the creepiest scene sex scene you’ve ever seen!” she continued. “There’s no chemistry between these two people, it’s like your skin is kind of crawling.”
Adding, “[The scenes are] really, really weird but that’s the beauty. That’s what we knew Justin would bring to part — something totally unique.”
“Bad Teacher” hits theaters on June 24.
