Mila Kunis stands up for Justin Timberlake against Russian journalist

By Alexandra Heilbron on August 3, 2011 | 51 Comments

During a press conference in Moscow for their new movie Friends with Benefits, Mila Kunis, who was born in Ukraine when it was still part of the USSR, was answering reporters’ questions in Russian when a journalist asked her co-star Justin Timberlake why he was doing movies instead of music. Mila obviously thought the question was stupid, jumping in with, “Why movies? Why not?” she retorted, before the question could be translated for Justin, adding, “What kind of question is that? Why are you here?” The crowd of reporters, appreciating Mila’s sass, burst into laughter and then applauded, while Justin looked amused, but perplexed, pointing at Mila and joking, “This is my bodyguard.”

    Haha, she put that reporter in her place!

    I always like when reports ask the Captain Obvious questions. SOme of my faves

    Reporter asking Ryan Kesler “how he feels”, after losing game 7 to Boston.

    Reporter asking a goalie how he feels after giving up 9 goals.

    Chris Pronger vs the media is the best! Youtube it people!

    Anyway, he sure isn’t girl-screaming material 🙁

  5. Dividis • August 4, 2011 @ 4:59 PM

    Why was the question stupid? Its legitimate question… Justin makes better music then movies PERIOD. Stop jumping the gun and take a chill pill yo

  6. Nina • August 4, 2011 @ 6:11 PM

    Mila was rude and snobish. She even didn’t listen the question till the end and started to talk although the question was directed to Justin. She was like a star came down to the Earth. I’m in doubt if she understood the question at all. Not the question – she looked stupid and – again – RUDE!

  7. phil • August 4, 2011 @ 8:02 PM

    stupid question. he is doing a movie because they cast him. he does music because his contract states he must record so many discs lol. anyone who thought Mila was rude should listen to the inane questions reporters ask, and besides, the reporter does know how to speak English, she just chose not to…now that is bloody rude.

  8. C-Dub • August 4, 2011 @ 8:07 PM

    He does both! And now the internet stuff. He’s multi-talented, and getting better as an actor. I think that he and Milis have a good repor and I think it’s great that she jumped in. Who cares if she didn’t hear the whole question, what else was there to ask?? It was why make movies instead of music? And she only jumped in instead of letting Justin speak, she didn’t seem to interupt the reporter ‘Nina’.
    And nice comeback from Justin for realizing quickly what was happening and saying she’s his bodyguard.
    Good friendship.

    I could tell Mila had difficulty hearing the question from the reporter..She answered like a true Ukrainian. I loved it she gave her some charming funny sass. Everyone’s making too much of a big deal about this. Everyone at the press conference laughed. I think they took it all in fun. Of course, some hypersensitive people have blown this thing all out of proportion..

  10. sal • August 5, 2011 @ 12:37 AM

    no kidding…justin’s acting sucks. he should stick to his singing career!!!!!

  11. ssssshhhhhh • August 5, 2011 @ 9:56 AM

    meg, who let you back in the house?

  12. Alli • August 5, 2011 @ 7:20 PM

    Justin is doing movies now because he had some nodules in his throat removed and is afraid he won’t be able to sing anymore in the future, gotta love Mila. I don’t know but it seems like the two are dating for real. I don’t really think she’s rude, reporters can be annoying.Friends with Benefits was a cute movie.

  13. AIssawi • August 6, 2011 @ 2:53 PM

    “meg, who let you back in the house?” – ssssshhhhhh

    HaHaHaHa, best comment on this website to date. Anyways, Timberlake stinks at both acting and being a “musician”. His acting is worthy of the fine films of Uwe Boll and his music is unoriginal and just plain ugly sounding.

    The Ukraine girls really knock me out!

  15. Spartacus • August 8, 2011 @ 3:16 PM


    1st of all, beyind any sahdow of any doubt what so ever was BEST ACTRESS of this past year and I was F:LABBERGASTED that the MORONS that run the oscars did not even THINK to nominate her for BEST ACTRESS…and she was 4 ga zillion times more better in every way than the SWAN lead Nathalie Portman

    It wasn’t even close, her acting made Portman’s Look PATHETIC. She COMPLETELY STOLE THAT MOVIE AND THE WHOLE WOPRLD IGNORED IT.


  16. tammy • August 18, 2011 @ 5:22 PM

    Love Mila soooo hot and Justin really he can’t sing or act PERIOD

  17. JJ • October 16, 2011 @ 8:29 PM

    Justin sucks at acting lol, but of course he’s going to get a role in a movie the guy is famous.

    Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a sea shell and
    gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said
    “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed.

    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally
    off topic but I had to tell someone!

    From endless requests for more information, to all the paperwork involved, to
    having insurance companies cut your bill, it can seem like
    insurance companies are in it more to make
    money, and less to help you provide your patients with high quality health care.
    Supplement to your income would be given to them so that they can still afford
    to retire. At the same time you would not want to pay huge sums for
    coverage that you might never use.

    work harder, which in turn diminishes your pet. Prepare and follow healthy food list – You
    can make a list of healthy recipes or foods that
