The other day following the SAGs, I noted that Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis were awfully close at the afterparty – click here for a refresher – like all cozy together on a couch and sh-t. is corroborating that account. According to their eyewitness, Pips and Mila were “pretty inseparable”. Interesting. On many levels. I have two sources who saw them together. Like not f-cking or anything, but they were tight, they wanted to be with each other, there was chemistry, it was flirty. My sources are not up a publicist’s ass. People’s source however could very well be. And Justin and Mila are in a movie together called Friends With Benefits. It couldn’t hurt to exploit whatever it is going on, or not going on, between them to start early promotion for the film. Even if that means hurting poor Jessica Biel.

The article is quick to offer assurance from another source – Jessica herself? – that she and Justin are solid, very much still a couple, and that he and Mila are no more than friendly colleagues. Sure. Here’s a more believable excuse:

Jesse Eisenberg and Andrew Garfield took off on him and he had no one else to hang with.

Ok that just made me laugh out loud. The idea of those two meangirling him is probably my favourite thing in life right now. Did you miss that article? Click here if you did.

Anyway, now that No Strings Attached didn’t totally suck, does that mean Friends With Benefits won’t either? Fair question. Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis can both act. Ashton Kutcher and Justin Timberlake can’t, though I’d argue that Ashton’s specialty is this genre, and is therefore better than Justin. I’ll also take Ivan Reitman (No Strings) over Will Gluck because, well, Easy A could have been a lot better.

Friends With Benefits hits theatres July 22. Here’s the red band trailer if you haven’t seen it. Even in a short minute 45, Justin puts on a clinic in sh-t timing and delivery. WHY do people still keep thinking he can do this???
