Mila Kunis snaps at reporter in Russian

Marine-dater Mila Kunis got a little testy at a press conference in Moscow last week after a reporter dared to do her job.

The “Friends With Benefits” star took it upon herself to defend co-star Justin Timberlake from a question about his music career. Kunis let the reporter have it, in fluent Russian of course.

“What brought you into movies?” the reporter asked Timberlake, according to a translation. “What?” the actress replied, as the former boy-bander looked very confused.

“What would you rather him do?” asked Kunis, who lived in Ukraine until she was seven. The crowd went wild. “What sort of question is that? Why are you here?”

“Well, I’m doing my job,” the reporter responded. Kunis had an answer for that: “Well, he’s doing his.” After coming out of a language barrier haze, Timberlake said, “This is my bodyguard.”

The moment was an entertaining combination of Bradley Cooper doing an interview in French with Matt Damon’s debt-ceiling disgust.
