Cameron Diaz - Cameron Diaz Loved Bad Teacher Realness

Cameron Diaz was attracted to her role in 'Bad Teacher' because she is "real".

The 38-year-old actress - who stars opposite Jason Segel and former boyfriend Justin Timberlake in the movie - plays an abusive, drug-taking teacher in the film and insists her character's actions reflect the behaviour of some staff working in the education system.

She said: "C'mon, you don't think there are teachers out there who get high at her school or want a boob job?! I was drawn to her because she's real. She lives how she wants to and doesn't apologise for it. I liked that she isn't a totally changed woman at the end of the film, because that's just not realistic."

Cameron recently spoke about how much she enjoyed working with Justin on the film, insisting their former romantic involvement was not a problem.

She said: "Justin and I have always had a good laugh together, and to make a movie where we get to have a laugh together, and there really was no one else who was more perfect for this part. Justin is a genius comedian.

"We went for the best person for the job, and it just so happened that it was him. And he delivers. He's frickin' weird in movies. He's so bizarre and hilarious. I say that with great respect to his character and what he's done!"
