Cameron Diaz isn't amused by comparisons between her new movie and the photo hacking scandal. The blonde beauty is currently starring opposite Jason Segel in fun flick Sex Tape, about a couple who accidentally send footage of their boudoir behaviour to a long list of friends and family. The release coincides with the recent hacking scandal that has rocked the showbiz world, which has seen intimate photos of stars including Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Upton leaked online.
'Our character's accidently uploaded it into the [Apple programme] iCloud and the celebrities' actually have it stolen, violated, illegally out of theirs'
When Radio 1 Breakfast Show host Nick Grimshaw jokily pointed out the similarities in the situation, 42-year-old Cameron was less than impressed.
"Actually not, because it's two different things" Cameron answered when Nick commented on how weird the film's subject is in context to the leaked images.
"Our character's accidently uploaded it into the [Apple programme] iCloud and the celebrities' actually have it stolen, violated, illegally out of theirs. It's totally different."
The mood was lightened with Cameron laughing off suggestions she was the hacker in order to promote the movie.
For the feature, Cameron and Jason had to share intimate scenes but neither actor was fazed by the prospect and they've already starred alongside each other in 2011's Bad Teacher.
"Jake Kasdan who directed that one [Bad Teacher], directed this so we kind of reunited the team. It was fun and funny, and you know, we were just trying to make it as funny as possible so it didn't feel particularly awkward, to me at least," Jason explained of the intimate scenes.
"Those scenarios are never what you think they are in the movie business. It's called movie magic, and we make it look like something it's not really," Cameron smiled.
"So yeah we didn't actually..." she trailed off before making a "boing" sound effect.
