Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis talk marriage equality
HollywoodNews.com: After seeing trailers for months, it’s a little hard to believe that the Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis romantic comedy Friends With Benefits opened in theaters just this past weekend.
The movie had to compete with opening weekend of Captain America and the second weekend of the final Harry Potter film so it’s no surprise that it opened at number three. Still, it managed a respectable $18 million in ticket sales.
The film’s stars talked to The Advocate about all kinds of LGBT topics including Woody Harrelson’s gay character in their film.
Said Justin: “I want to say that once we came up with the idea that Woody’s character would be gay, it was really important to me that we use that as an opportunity to break anything that is a stereotype. Stereotypes are offensive to our culture. I’m a straight male who has male friends who are gay. We don’t have any problem communicating. We don’t any problem being two guy friends regardless of our differences in sexual orientation. It just so happens that Woody’s character happens to be a cock hound, like you said. When you first meet him he makes those abrasive jokes, but it’s just his specific character’s sense of humor. It was perfect to have Woody in this role, because we wanted to take some chances and break some stereotypes.”
