[caption id="attachment_60741" align="alignleft" width="220" caption="Getty Images"][/caption] It's one thing when a couple has to make out in a movie, but a former couple? In "Bad Teacher," Cameron Diaz's teacher character will stop at nothing to win the heart of her school's most eligible (ie: richest) bachelor — played by none other than her real-life ex, Justin Timberlake.Quick refresher: Diaz and the kid from *NSYNC first met at the Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards in April 2003 and soon began dating.They issued a joint statement announcing their split in January 2007 and Timberlake soon took up a relationship with Jessica Biel (which recently went bust, but they were definitely still dating while "Bad Teacher" was filming).Despite whatever water may be under that proverbial breakup bridge, Diaz seemed totally at ease working with her ex, even when it came to the (soon-to-be-infamous) dry-humping scene."Justin and I wanted to create the least sexy sex scene ever seen on screen," Diaz tells Next Movie. We haven't gone out with each other for as long as we were together. The thing is, we know each other so well that we've allowed our friendship and love to totally morph and change into something completely appropriate for us to do this with one another." Plus, the actors still have things in common."We really wanted to show the total lack of chemistry between these two people and I think we succeeded." But why put yourself through even faux, bad sex scene with an ex? And two, because we've always loved laughing together. And yes, people think like, 'Oh, should that be awkward? Diaz explains, "We love to make people laugh and we both feel blessed and privileged to be able to make movies.
