When asked about filming her latest comedy with ex-boyfriend Justin Timberlake, Diaz said, “We had a relationship that was different to this part of our relationship and if we held onto things that everyone would assume that we should be holding onto, we'd just be missing out on the friendship that we have now, and there's no reason for that.”
