Mila Kunis Defends Justin Timberlake in Russian at Moscow Press Junket

Truth rating: 10

By Michael Lewittes



Mila Kunis came to Justin Timberlake‘s aid at a recent press junket in Moscow for their film, Friends with Benefits.

When Timberlake was asked by a reporter why he was concentrating more on his film career than music these days, before he could answer via a translator, the Ukrainian born Kunis jumped to her comrade’s defense.

In her native Russian, Kunis snapped, “Why movies? Why not?”

She added, “What kind of question is that? Why are you here?”

The crowd, which laughed and cheered, seemed to be on her side.

An appreciative Timberlake then joked that Kunis “is my bodyguard.”

Check out the video below of Timberlake having the benefit of a Russian-speaking friend.
