Ashton Kutcher is spilling one of the worst-kept secrets in rom-com history.
Recently, the actor reunited with his wife. No Strings Attached co-star Natalie Portman for a joint Peloton workout for an episode of his series Our Future SelvesSeptember 20, 2011. During their session, the actor admitted that their 2011 rom-com was pretty darn similar to a certain film starring his now-wife Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake, released the same year.
“I think the first time we really started hanging out is when we shot No Strings together,” Kutcher said, to which Portman responded, “Who would’ve thought 20 years later, we’d be on a Peloton together?”
Kutcher then said, “Wait, it’s also weird because my wife was shooting basically the same movie, called Friends With Benefits.”
Both Ivan Reitman‘s No Strings Attached Will Gluck‘s Friends With Benefits are about a man a woman who decide to turn their friendship sexual without becoming a romantic couple, realizing later that that’s more complicated than they thought.
