It’s Friday in July and you’re probably cranky because you’re in work, just counting down the endless minutes. You know what you need? Pretty celebrities dry humping in designer clothes, that’s what!
Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake
August 2011 Issue of ELLE

First: sound bites; then opinions; then pictures. Ready? GO!
ELLE: “Friends with benefits”: a good idea or a bad idea?
Justin Timberlake: [Smiles] It is such a good idea—until it’s a bad idea.
Mila Kunis: I concur. Ultimately, it ends when someone wants to go and get serious with somebody. More times than not, a person catches feelings and somebody gets hurt.
ELLE: Most annoying thing your costar did on set?
JT: She would serenade me, all of us, in the makeup trailer—
MK: I can’t sing.
JT: Couldn’t carry a tune if I put it in a bucket for her. It’s awesome, though, because she does not give a shit.
Everyone make a big W out of their thumbs and forefingers and roll their eyes right now. There. Now we can continue.
Thank God Joe Zee is so damn talented, because we really adore the guy and we’d hate to have to bitch about his work. He’s really good at styling looks without making them look styled. Does that make any sense? There’s a naturalism to these pictures. That movie they’re flogging looks shitastic, but we were struck by how damn much chemistry the two of them seem to have here. Then we realized if they’d been overstyled or styled in a different way, they’d never have looked as comfortable rolling around a bed or lying on the floor. It’s a romantic, sexy, casual sort of feel and you can tell from the pictures that it made things easy for them. How much do you want to bet they don’t have half this chemistry in that movie?
