London: Justin Timberlake has revealed that it was not problem to act out fully-clothed sex scenes with his co-star Cameron Diaz even after they ended their long and serious relationship.
Cameron plays a disreputable teacher Elizabeth Halsey, who sets about snaring new colleague Scott Delacorte, played by Justin in the movie, which called for him to simulate sex with Miss Halsey.
“It`s fine. We have to believe there`s somebody out there who dated and who are still friends,” the Sun quoted him as saying.
“We are also both really awesome,” he added.
Justin also admitted that having dated Cameron in real life did lead to better sexual chemistry on screen.
“Yes, to be honest I think it was a benefit that we knew each other and that we were friends,” Timberlake said.
“It was a very specific relationship that these two characters had and it was great just walking in and going, `Oh I really trust that person, I can try every idea and I`ll feel safe about it,” he said.
The 38-yar-old actress started dating Timberlake in April 2003 after they met at a US awards show for the Nickelodeon TV channel.
The romance ended in December 2006 with rumours of Justin seeing actress Scarlett Johansson instead.
