Cameron Diaz and Justin Timberlake were once a real life couple and now they’re reuniting on screen – but there was nothing awkward about the former flames working together.

Being on set with Timberlake, 30, on the upcoming Bad Teacher “really wasn’t a big deal,” Diaz, 38, said before accepting the award for Female Star of the Year at CinemaCon in Las Vegas on Wednesday. “We had a great time.”

And the pair’s shared sense of humor came in handy. “Justin and I have always had a good laugh together, and to make a movie where we get to have a laugh together,” Diaz said. “There really was no one else who was more perfect for this part. That’s why he got the part.”
