Pairs Division: Kunis and Timberlake

Posted on July 18, 2011

Well, it seems that western culture is determined to foist that Friends with Benefits movie on us, so the stars are doing their contractually obligated bit to remind us all that they made a movie.

Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis attend the ‘Friends With Benefits’ photocall at Summer of Sony 3 on July 13, 2011 in Cancun, Mexico.

HE: Looks like the guidance counselor at a Christian youth camp. Slap on a big cross on a chain and about 30 friendship bracelets and the picture will be complete. Henley collars with vests look hot on absolutely no male in existence, unless you’re Fabio on the cover of a romance novel, and even then, that’s an acquired taste. Also, he’s melting into a puddle, apparently. We’d wag our fingers at him for making his female co-star do all the work but apparently she’s off the clock too. Score: 4/10.

SHE: Looks hungover. Sure, it’s a photocall in Cancun and that usually means a casual feel, but she looks like she’s ready to hit the tourist trap bars with her besties for the third night n a row and drink brightly colored drinks that maintain their vividness even after they come back up in a row of bushes outside your hotel at 4 am. That’s a dress picked up off her hotel room floor paired with the only two matching shoes she could find at the last minute. Very disappointing. And while the dress isn’t offensive or anything, it’s kind of shapeless on her. Pair it with those lackluster shoes and the whole look says “I could barely be bothered.” Score: 4/10.

Combined score: 4/10. You’re highly paid movie stars. Put a little fricking effort in, kids.

      I love JT, but with that outfit, he took sexy back, put it in his pocket, and saved it for later.

      I think her dress is cute, but with the lack of effort put in on all other fronts, it’s sad.  I like JT, but this outfit was a bad idea.  What’s with his facial expression?

      It’s like they both know this movie is worthless, so they aren’t even bothering.

        I quite like her dress too! It could’ve been something with better accessorizing and better attitude.

      Those aren’t his pants! He stole those from a taller person.

      I think 4/10 is generous for both of them.  You must have slept well last night & had great coffee this morning, TLo.

    • MilaXX

      Agree on the scores. Hot mess, both of them. No effort involved in this look at all.

      They look terrible.

      Children, how many times do we need to talk about not playing with mommy and daddies clothes without permission?

      Best laugh out loud moment of the day so far! Thank you!

      Look at his face in the first picture for a while. It’s so weird!

      I think they both look tired and hangover as you say.

      So I’m not sure….Does this mean you did or did not like their outfits?

      If you are giving 4/10 first thing on a Monday morning, I CAN’T WAIT to see the bitchery that transpires by Friday afternoon. It’s gonna be a good week :-)

      OMG – you guys kill.  Hilarious.  Thanks for the Monday morning laugh!

      My biggest problem is her hair. It just doesn’t look good on her, parted that way. But to give them credit, they do seem to kind of enjoy each other’s company, unlike the Timberlake/Diaz photo shots.

      If ever there was a time and place that called for a sleek ponytail it’s a photocall in Cancun in the middle of July.  No one looks good with humidity hair, not even Mila Kunis.

        really!  i have to cut them a little slack since they are in cancun.  in tropical mexico, clothes are always rumpled, everything smells like mildew, and your hair is soaking wet.  and of course they look hungover, i mean it’s cancun.  but still, 4 out of ten is generous.

      I always appreciate posts like this one.  They show that even beautiful rich people can look worse than I do, and I just got up.

      Agreed on all points.  That dress is a cute print bu totally shapeless on her very cute shape.  And bad, bad shoes that really shouldn’t have even been packed for Cancun in July.

      Personally, I think he always looks a litte “camp counselor”.  I’m still waiting for him to bring sexy back, so far, nada.

    • lilibetp

      She looks more stoned than hungover to me.

      Guys, your descriptions are so perfect! Guidance counselor at a Christian youth camp!
      I’m thinking Mila’s hairbrush is lost somewhere in that pile on her hotel room floor, because she sure didn’t use it before going to this thing. In fact, I’ll bet her hair still smells like stale cigarette smoke from the night before. 

    • Anonymous

      OK, I’ll give you that JT could have tried harder, and Mila’s shoes probably were a non-thought, but still. It’s Cancun. I’ll give them a pass and not count the 4/10 towards the final score.

      I paid $32.67 for a XBOX 360 and my mom got a 17 inch Toshiba laptop for $94.83 being delivered to our house tomorrow by FedEX. I will never again pay expensive retail prices at stores. I even sold a 46 inch HDTV to my boss for $650 and it only cost me $52.78 to get. Here is the website we using to get all this stuff, LiveCent.com

      O.k.  I just laughed for about a minute straight about the counselor at a Christian camp comment.  He IS just missing the cross necklace–I remember those guys from my unfortunate camp days.  Also, MK has sad hair.  The horror!

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_DO54ICWQLRD2STHRSELEATLSKY Cindy

      All the Christian Youth Ministers of the world are rejoicing that Justin Timberlake is their new “mascot”…  loved that comment.  Really, Justin.. you are freakin’ Justin Timberlake and you come up with THIS?   WTH!   Mila– I just don’t care.  

    • Anonymous

      They both look hungover, but he pulls it off slightly better in the face. Bo-ring. And Mila looks like she’s wearing two big clogs on her feet. Sandals would’ve been better.

    • Terence Ng

      They look like they’re embodying the casual characters they portray in the film. Looks like a sell to me.

    • Lisa

      Yeah, this isn’t as fabulous as their photo spread from this past week.

      Hopefully, a memo on appropriate clothing for photo calls will be arriving from the studio…I can smell the patchoulli through my screen.

      Aw, c’mon, TLo….maybe they were told it was Casual Friday on the red carpet.

      Such a funny write-up. And yeah, there is effortless chic (good) and no effort at all (bad). This is clearly the latter.

      LMAO, you’ve got it right on Timberlake! He looks like a Christian country/rock singer! Though I disagree with you on henley shirts on men. I think Daniel Craig would look JUST FINE in a half-buttoned henley shirt. MMmm!

      Guidance counselor at a Christian camp!  ha!

      Is Timberlake’s vest ACID WASH?  Or bad suede?  I must know! Also, did they just fuck in the limo?

      No. TLo, you are being way too generous.

      I mean, look at JT’s expression.  Empty eyes fixed on the difference, weird grin…he looks like a particularly stupid dog in these pics.

      WHAT are with his shoes?

    • Anonymous

      I take it all they have to show up with is JT’s “charm” and Mila in a short skirt and they’ve got it covered.

      Ooooh, that does not bode well for the quality of the film.

      I think he’d have to find sexy before bringing it back. I’ve never understood his appeal, he’s gross here and sometimes slightly less gross when better dressed. She usually brings it, but here, she looks like she’s still a little drunk (and still wearing last night’s clothes).

    • http://twitter.com/margo8461 Marguerite

      I like her dress and think it could have worked with the right shoes and combed hair. A little effort would have made all the difference. He just looks bad. The pants are too long and the three different colored pieces of mismatched clothing are regrettable, at best. Someone should have paid for the stylist’s plane ticket.

      I think you’re feeling a little cranky about having to see one or both of these persons talking about their (couldn’t possibly be that great) movie every time you turn around. With, god help us, film clips. (She was on some talk show at the gym this a.m. Boring and not looking that great, either.)

      Not that your scores are undeserved.

      “Guidance counselor at a Christian youth camp” indeed. Love you guys so much! Thanks for the laugh. 3/10
      Her dress isn’t all bad. If she put her hair back in a cute ponytail and had on different shoes it’d be fine. I’d give her 5/10.

      I hope she insists on condoms.

      Shapeless dress, and even a bit short, too, I think. Her hair, too, even if it does not have the texture of spygirl hair, has the shape of it. The more I look at the dress, the more I actually hate it!

      Nothing to add to your assessment of him, though. Just awful.

      Disappointing this round.

      I slightly disagree on the henley/vest comment. It does nothing for me here (Christian camp ~ heehee!), but on the right burly, British gentlemen in a historical mini-series, it gives me a little randy D.H. Lawrence/Thomas Hardy field hand, “Come here and lie with me in the hay, lass” kind of tingle. Yeah, that’s right, I like a little bit of rough. ;-)
