In the middle of a press conference in Moscow, Russia to promote her new movie “Friends with Benefits,” actress Mila Kunis fell out with a Russian reporter who questioned Kunis’ co-star Justin Timberlake about him pursuing an acting career over his singing career.
When asked in Russian why JT was acting instead of making more music, an offended Kunis, who is of Russian heritage, and was born in Ukraine and moved to the U.S. when she was 7, shot back at the reporter in FLUENT RUSSIAN! She said something like: “Why movies? Why not? What kind of question is that? Why are you here?”
Timberlake clearly didn’t know what was going on until the translator could catch him up with the English version, but once he finally understood the situation, he pointed at Mila Kunis and said with a laugh: “This is my bodyguard.”
EDITOR’S NOTE: An original version of this article stated that Mila Kunis was born in Russia. She was in fact born in the Ukraine, but is of Russian heritage. This page has since been updated to reflect the change.
