Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis appear in a Russian press conference for the movie 'Friends With Benefits.' (YouTube)

Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake proved to really be 'Friends with Benefits' when the actress stood up for her co-star and told off a reporter in Russian during a recent Moscow press conference for the movie.

When asked in Russian why Timberlake is focusing on acting instead of making more music, Kunis took over asking angrily, "Why movies? Why not? What kind of question is that? Why are you here?"

The room erupted with laughter and applause while a confused Timberlake waited for his earpiece translation to come through. Once he understood what Kunis had said, Timberlake pointed at Kunis and joked, "This is my bodyguard."

Kunis was born in the Ukrainian SSR of the Soviet Union and immigrated to Los Angeles when she was 7. The 27-year-old actress credits "The Price Is Right" host Bob Barker for helping her learn English.

In the romantic comedy, "Friends with Benefits, the two play friends whose relationship becomes complicated after they decide to become intimate. The film also stars "Saturday Night Live" cast member Andy Samberg, "Spider-Man" actress Emma Stone and Woody Harrelson.

Kunis recently began filming "Oz: The Great & Powerful," in which she plays evil witch Theodora opposite James Franco's Wizard of Oz.

Kunis recently agreed to attend a Marine Corps Ball after Marine Sgt. Scott Moore asked her out via a YouTube video. Timberlake accepted a similar invitation from a female marine.
