To watch Mila Kunis onscreen, it’s easy to forget that English wasn’t her first language. In fact, the Ukrainian-born actress says she didn’t speak a word of it until her family moved to the United States when she was 7. But this week, Kunis got to show off her Russian at a press conference in Moscow, when a reporter asked Kunis’ Friends with Benefits co-star Justin Timberlake why he had stopped making music. “What would you rather him do?” Kunis snapped. “What kind of question is that? Why are you here?” The chastened reporter answered: “Well, I’m doing my job.” Kunis fired back, “Well, he’s doing his.” Finally, a clearly lost in translation J.T. spoke for himself: “This is my bodyguard,” he said. In pretty good English.
