Diaz plays a ruthless teacher named Elizabeth in Bad Teacher. When she’s dumped by her fiance, she schemes to win over a rich, handsome substitute, played by Justin Timberlake. When Elizabeth finds herself fighting off the advances of a gym teacher, she must face the consequences of her behavior. Co-starring Lucy Punch and Jason Segel.
I think this character is meant to represent good and bad of what is possible in a human being, and I think that’s something that I appreciated the fact that there’s certain things she doesn’t apologize for and there’s certain things she admits that she needs to do better on.
