  • Source: Cameron Diaz thrilled to be working with ex-boyfriend Justin Timberlake



    Cameron Diaz has been happier than usual lately and we have learned it’s all about Justin Timberlake.

    Friends of the starlet tell Fox 411 that Cameron is thrilled to be filming “Bad Teacher” with her former boyfriend.

    “They’ve been apart for years, but they stayed friends and the friendship has only gotten better over time,” a source close to the stars tells Fox411.

    “Cameron loved Justin and  they were always trying to come up with some project they could do together beyond ‘Shrek.’”

    According to the source, Diaz used her influence with producers to secure her ex a role. “She is very happy that ‘Bad Teacher’ worked out  — Cameron was gunning for Justin to be in it with her and she had some influence over the choice.”

    The decision lifted the spirits of star of the upcoming Tom Cruise film “Knight and Day” after she was left feeling gloomy when filming wrapped.

    “Diaz has been going through ups and downs lately between films and Justin’s hiring made her feel better.

    “Cameron loves working and now she gets to go to work with someone who knows her as well as her closest friends.  It’s a treat and she’s already laughing.”

    But the question on everyone’s minds is whether or not the two will rekindle their romance on the set of ‘Bad Teacher.’

    “Justin has no intention of cheating on Jessica with Cameron,” the source said.  “He and Cam are strictly friends.  Justin and Jessica have worked hard to get past a lot of turmoil in their relationship and they are in a great place.  He is making it clear that he is thrilled to be working with Cam again, but that’s where the line is drawn.

    And while Page Six spotted Biel dining alone in New York City, she isn’t concerned about the impending reunion.

    “Jessica says she has no reservations about the movie.  She knows that Cameron and Justin have great comedy chemistry – Justin has it with everyone he’s close to.  He can make anyone laugh at the drop of a hat.”

    “Bad Teacher” also stars Molly Shannon and Jason Segel as other faculty members.
