Some actors swear a lot as the cameras roll and, in most instances, those blue moments end up on the cutting-room floor. But not in the case of Bad Teacher, in which Cameron Diaz raises profanity to the level of high art in her title role.
"It was all phonetic," Diaz said, laughing. "We started with an 'F' and we ended up with a 'K,' and, apparently, if you put these other two letters in between, it makes a very funny noise ... and people understand it."
As Diaz explains, actors typically drop F-bombs on the set, even if it's not in the script. "Then you're, 'God, you can't say that. We can't use that one,'" said the actress.
But in the making of Bad Teacher, which opens in Cineplex theatres Friday, Diaz said it was just the opposite: "You're like, 'More F-bombs, give it to us' in this film. So to be able to be on set and have your director screaming that at you is a lot of fun. Everybody is just laughing."

The title of Diaz's school comedy pretty much sums up her character: Bad Teacher.
Diaz's Elizabeth Halsey is a cussing, conniving, boozing school teacher who calls her students morons as she hurls their test papers at them, dresses like a stripper for a class car wash and has only one educational goal: to get her hooks into a rich substitute teacher. He's played by Diaz's real-life ex, Justin Timberlake.
Bad Teacher arrives just in time for summer vacation, debuting in theatres June 24.
Diaz, who stopped by theater owners' CinemaCon convention Wednesday in Las Vegas to collect an award as female star of the year, described her character's life as "one big F-bomb."
