Cameron told BANG Showbiz: “Jude was wonderful, funny, charming, did I say funny? 

            “He was so open and grounded, a really nice person. All the girls on the set had a crush on him. He engages with everyone, no matter who they are or what their job is.

“Oh and there were a lot of man crushes as well. All the guys were saying, ‘I never realised Jude was so nice and handsome.'” 

            She added: “I considered him my partner in the film and I couldn’t have asked for a better partner. He is so professional and I loved working with him. I just hoped we did a good job at showing that our characters were head-over-heels in love with one another.”


“I think that was another thing that I loved about it so much was that it’s highly relatable to everyone,” said Diaz. “I mean, I can relate to Iris and I can relate to Amanda. I think that we’ve all been through these relationships before. Judging by the age in this room we’ve had relationships before. That’s life.

It’s the journey of love. This lifetime is to try to figure out how to make love work and nurture relationships. There’s definitely something that I think everybody can see a bit themselves, maybe not the exact same experience, but certainly the human aspect of it.”


Everybody has problems in romance. 

            “Who doesn’t? The great thing about romantic comedies, I think, or just love is that it’s imperfect. People spend a lot of time on it. What would we do if relationships were perfect? What would we do with our time? People spend their time trying to figure out whether it’s going to a movie to be entertained by it or have a catharsizes, learn something from it”

            “There’s a certain level of energy and attention that we give to that. I think in these movies the women are smart because it’s more fun to watch a smart woman than a not very smart woman. I think most people want to go and see something that they consider themselves smart, and they want to go watch somebody that they can relate to. I left it up to somebody like Nancy Meyers to write somebody smart and I just act it.” 

            So how does it feel to do a love scene with Jude Law while she’s in a relationship with someone else? 

            Diaz answered, “Well, it’s a funny thing we do. It’s a weird job. I’m not going to say that it’s not. You guys have all been around it long enough. You’ve asked these questions every time, I’m sure, to other actors. As actors we commit ourselves to certain emotions for the movie and for the sake of telling the story. That’s what we do. We’re storytellers. I’m sure as you ask every other actor, they’ll all tell you it’s uncomfortable first off to think about having to be intimate with somebody who isn’t the person that you’re intimate with. But, you’re acting and it’s your job. There’s certainly a level of professional that is essential to do that kind of work. You’re in a room with 50 people and the camera is right here. It’s about making people believe it’s something, but it’s never that. For some people, I’m sure it’s happened, but it’s just not that for me anyhow. We’re acting.” 

            Diaz added, “Jude Law is a wonderful partner in these things. Kate and I talk about it and she says, ‘The level of professional with him…it’s just not weird.’ He’s totally respectful. He’s a very nice professional guy. He’s the perfect person to do something like this with.”
