Mila Kunis Comes to Justin Timberlake’s Defense … In Russian
Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis have been hitting the interviews hard in the recent weeks, promoting their new movie, 'Friends With Benefits,' which hit theaters last month.
During a recent stop in Moscow, Russia last week, the two met with the media and fielded many questions about current events. However, one reporter's question was directed toward Timberlake's abandonment of his singing career. When the reporter asked why Timberlake is focusing so much on his movie career over music, his co-star, Kunis, jumped to his defense, firing back her thoughts in Russian.
"Why movies? Why not?" said Kunis, who was born in Ukraine, before a translator could step in. "What kind of question is that? Why are you here?"
Timberlake sat beside Kunis, watching the conversation bounce back and forth as he was hearing it translated into his ear piece on delay. As Kunis turned to Timberlake to see if he was keeping up, he was caught by surprise and laughter filled the room.
"This is my bodyguard," Timberlake joked as he pointed to Kunis.
Timberlake and Kunis' latest film, 'Friends With Benefits,' hit theaters nationwide on July 22.
