during an interview with Howard Stern. Turns out, the way played out in real life was foretold in both of their movies, No Strings Attached (2011) and Friends With Benefits (2011).
This married couple basically lived out their Hollywood scripts, but they are not alone in this experience. had a similar adventure, which is only more mind-blowing when you consider all the other coincidences Mila’s Friends With Benefits and Black Swan (2010) co-stars have had.
on in the beginning of her career. They never had butterflies for one another till years later, after they started casually hooking up in secret. Both of the actors had recently starred in movies relating to the nature of these types of non-committal sexual relationships. Ashton Kutcher was the lead in No Strings Attached alongside Natalie Portman, who coincidentally had a sex scene with Mila Kunis in .
In an AMA on Reddit, Mila Kunis admitted the following: “Here’s a little-known fact: there’s one person in the world that both Ashton and I have kissed, and that’s Natalie Portman.” On top of that, Kunis starred alongside in what was basically the exact same movie, released the exact same year, but entitled Friends With Benefits.
Spoiler alert: The two movies explored the same types of nonchalant intimate interactions, which both failed miserably after each of the parties involved fell in love. Apply the storyline to Ashton and Mila and you’ve got yourself a marriage, a baby, and .
“If we just paid attention to these movies, we should know that sh*t like this does not work out in real life. Well, we clearly didn’t pay attention and we shook hands, we’re like, ‘Let’s just have fun.’ I mean, literally, we lived out our movies.”
Surely, they’re not the only ones. So which of Mila’s co-stars have lived out the movies they were in?
After the awkward indirect threesome between Mila/Ashton/Natalie, you’d think there could be no more coincidences left — but you’d be wrong. In Black Swan, Natalie Portman who plays the Prima Ballerina Nina Sayers, develops a weird type of sexual relationship with the company’s director/choreographer of Swan Lake, Thomas Leroy (Vincent Cassel).
The actual choreographer of the movie, Benjamin Millepied, is in fact Natalie Portman’s real-life husband and baby daddy. In Black Swan, Millepied also happened to play David, the Prince who Nina’s Swan Queen is supposed to seduce in the Swan Lake production. Trippy, I know. In the clip below, Natalie’s husband is the male dancer who says, “Have fun, you too.”
You’d think that Mila Kunis might be jealous that Natalie Portman made out with her future husband, or that Ashton Kutcher might be jealous that Portman made out with his future wife. Ironically, in Black Swan, Natalie Portman is the possessive one. Nina is infuriatingly jealous of Mila’s character Lily, who poses a threat to her role as The Swan Queen. Lily is in many ways compared to the Black Swan, the darker alter ego that seduces the Prince away from the pure White Swan.
Nina eventually embodies both alter egos. However, throughout the majority of the movie, it was Lily who threatened to take the role away from Nina, along with the heart of her prince, Natalie’s actual husband. To add on to the irony, the movie revolves around the ballerina’s role as The Swan Queen, which somehow finds its way into her reality, turning her into a swan — it’s the inception of foreshadowing.
It’s like they their roles psychically predicted their futures. Maybe Ashton Kutcher was jealous in advance, and that’s why he made Justin Timberlake cry on the pilot of MTV’s Punk’d.
Kutcher plotted for Timberlake to believe he had an outstanding balance of $900,000 in back taxes. Supposed IRS agents seized the celebrity’s house along with all his valuables and even his dogs. The furry friends is what got Timberlake to cry himself a river. That is, until Kutcher revealed himself and the singer declared war.
At this point, if you’re not confused, you’re bewildered. So what’s next in this intertwined coincidental madness? All that’s left is a gay scene between Millepied and Kutcher to bring everything to a full circle. This crew should tread carefully because these connections have had some eerie foreshadowing on reality. Who needs crystal balls or destiny when you have Hollywood?
Do you have any other weird examples of actors living out their movies?
