Justin Timberlake and Cameron Diaz Reunite….for New Movie

Justin Timberlake and Cameron Diaz

This may be too awkward to not watch.

Three years after breaking up, and Cameron Diaz are reuniting once again. The one-time couple of nearly four years are both set to star in Bad Teacher, a comedy from Walk Hard‘s Jake Kasdan.

Although the two technically worked on Shrek the Third together (and will both be heard on Shrek Forever After), this film will bring their working relationship to a different level. In Teacher, Cameron will play a gold-digging teacher who competes with a colleague for the affections of a well-off substitute teacher (Timberlake). I can just see the two of them - and Jessica Biel - on the red carpet together now…

Filming on is scheduled to start this month. Jason Segel, Molly Shannon, Eric Stonestreet and John Michael Higgins will all co-star.

First Look: Diaz and Cruise in Knight and Day Trailer


In , Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz reunite for a film that is probably as far away from Vanilla Sky as you could get. (Cue the applause.)

Based on this trailer, I’d say this movie looks like Mission Impossible meets Mr. and Mrs. Smith, Hancock and My Best Friend’s Wedding. But what is it really about?

“It’s a fun character comedy; adventure, romance—I don’t want to give away too much,” Tom explained to Entertainment Tonight. “Girl meets boy, boy sees girl, girl sees boy, adventure ensues.” Don’t worry, Tom. You didn’t give anything away…at all.

The action-comedy opens July 2, 2010.

Young Co-Stars Support Cameron Diaz

Cameron Diaz with Sofia and AbigailA-list actress Cameron Diaz was helped through the grieving process by her young co-stars.

The actress - who lost her father Emilio in April 2008 after he died of pneumonia while she was shooting the film My Sister’s Keeper  - said it was the kind words of Abigail Breslin, 13, and Sofia Vassilieva, 17, who provided the most comfort.

“Being able to go back to a great group of people, who were there and waiting for me, was a blessing. Those girls helped me. Nick Cassavetes, the director, was amazing, too. That’s the only way I was able to do it.”

Despite the tragedy, the 37-year-old beauty - who was given two weeks off after the production schedule was changed to help her grieve -  said she knew the “show must go on”: “If anyone knows what it’s like to lose a parent, and it happened very suddenly and very unexpectedly for me, you’re in shock.”

Her father’s death has also made her appreciate those around her a lot more.

“The most important thing I’ve found in my life is my family and friends. Your wealth in life is the people who you get to love and who love you back, and all the experiences that you get to have with those people throughout your life.”

Box Office Breakdown: Christmas Carol Wins, Precious Soars

Disney's A Christmas Carol

We’re still weeks away from Thanksgiving, but theatergoers already have Christmas on their minds.

, the umpteenth version of the Charles Dickens tale, brought the story back to life with a visual rendition. Robert Zemeckis’ latest holiday creation earned over $30 million, surpassing Polar Express’ open by $7 million. Although the Jim Carrey film didn’t come close to its reported $180 million budget, Carol still has weeks to go before Avatar takes over 3D screens.

Meanwhile, a film with no bells or whistles made an impact just outside the Top 10. , Sundance’s Audience Award and Grand Jury Prize winner, broke a record while in limited release. The 12th place entry averaged a whopping $104,025 this weekend over only 18 theaters. That’s the largest per screen average for any film opening in more than 10 locations.

Cameron Diaz’s Role as Director’s Mother

The Box

hung out with her director’s parents to prepare for a movie role.

The actress says that her character Norma in The Box was based so closely on filmmaker Richard Kelly’s mother, she decided the best way to work on her accent and mannerisms was to spend time with her.

“Norma and her husband Arthur (played by ) were literally based on Richard’s parents. His father did exactly the same job as Arthur and Norma has the same disfigurement of the foot his mother had. The film’s his interpretation of their love story and their dedication to one another,” she explained. “I spent time with both his parents. His mother was very generous with her experience about how her foot became disfigured and the way it happened for her was in the story. I also did her accent, she’s from northern Texas and spent time in Virginia so she had a mutated accent, so there was a lot there to get into that was tangible for me.”
