Opening this Friday is Friends with Benefits, Will Gluck’s follow up to Easy A. Not to be confused with Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher’s similarly themed No Strings Attached, FWB is a hip, sharply written and very R-rated romantic comedy about casual sex starring Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis. You can watch the trailer here.
Recently, I sat down with Jenna Elfman to discuss her role in the film. During our interview she talked about some of her favorite romantic comedies of old, how she handled the films high-wire dialogue, the reality of the proverbial ‘one-that-got-away’, her thoughts on true love and much more. Hit the jump to watch.
