Cameron Diaz Talks "Bad Teacher"

Posted Tuesday April 26, 2011 8:46 PM GMT

As one of Hollywood’s top actresses, Cameron Diaz busted out her fabulous big screen skills for the upcoming comedy “Bad Teacher.”

Sitting down with MTV News, the “Charlie’s Angels” babe explained a little bit about her character in the film, saying, "She's not a good teacher. She is the opposite of good. She is a bad teacher. She is bad at teaching. ... She just really doesn't care. She doesn't want to be a good teacher, and so therefore, being a bad teacher really doesn't mean anything to her either."

She added, "She's miserable. She's not happy with her world, and she doesn't pretend that she is. Her pain is real. She's living a very painful existence, so there's no humor to her in this."

Recalling a bad teacher of her own, Cameron went on to say, "I had a really, really bad teacher. I'm not naming names. That teacher knows who that teacher is, and that's about it. I think that this person actually cared about being a good teacher, but just happened to be terrible," she added with a laugh. "We've all had those teachers. Teaching is not everybody's calling."
