That’s right. Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel are the latest duo to make a sex tape. But, it’s not exactly what you might think. It’s just for their new movie.

In the upcoming comedy “Sex Tape,” the co-stars play a married couple hoping to spice up their dull love life by taping themselves doing the deed in various positions. But, of course, everything falls apart when the explicit video is accidentally sent to all their friends and family through Apple’s confusing iCloud. Naturally, a hilarious panic ensues as the pair attempts to retrieve the footage and salvage their dignity.


The 41-year-old actress spilled to People about what it was like shooting the film, which hits theaters on July 25.

"The whole movie is lovemaking between the characters," Diaz said. "The crew was awesome and so respectful. It's not a vanity thing. It's about telling a story. There's such trust [with Jason]. We both had each other's backs. Our day was, 'My ass is going to be in your face and your package is going to be in my face!'"

The blonde also revealed how she avoided major wardrobe malfunctions on set while strutting around nearly naked everyday. "My dresser and I got really intimate. Double-stick tape can be the difference between the whole world seeing your goods!,” she said.

And, don't be fooled. According to Diaz, the R-rated movie isn’t as raunchy as it might seem. “We had such a fun time laughing our asses off, having such gratitude that this is our job. We get to be idiots all day long and tell a really sweet story at the same time."
