If you’re making a movie called “Sex Tape,” chances are there is going to be some nudity involved – and for Cameron Diaz, it was her first time taking it off on the big screen!

“It’s not really like I’m nude. You just see my butt,” she told Access Hollywood’s Liz Hernandez on Thursday.

The 41-year-old actress didn’t’ think much about baring her bottom based on what she’s previously worn.

“I feel like everybody’s seen my butt already because I like wear really small bikinis or usually my pants are hanging down so you see like my top butt crack or the bottom butt crack,” she explained. “But this time you see the two of them all together!”

And Cameron thought why not show off considering what the film is about (a couple’s sex tape is mistakenly uploaded to the cloud).

“It was a playful, fun film,” she said. “As I do with every character, I try to figure out what’s authentic for them. I just thought this was a really fun way to show these two people’s dynamic – that they are uninhibited with one another and it’s a movie called ‘Sex Tape,’ so it was the perfect formula for it.”

Adding, “I’m 20 years into my career, so I really figure I don’t have to, [but] it’s been all in the spirit of the film.”

“Sex Tape,” also starring Jason Segel, opens on July 18.
