Ashton Kutcher Admits He & Natalie Portman "Basically" Made Same Film as Mila Kunis & Justin Timberlake

In the annals of romantic comedies, Ashton Kutcher is exposing one of the worst-kept secrets.

For a recent episode of his television series Our Future Selves, which was published on September 20,

 the actor and Natalie Portman, who played his No Strings Attached co-star, worked out together on a Peloton bike.

 During their conversation, the actor acknowledged that their 2011 romantic comedy and another movie starring his now-wife Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake from the same year were quite similar.

Portman said, "Who would've imagined 20 years later, we'd be on a Peloton together," in response to Kutcher's statement that "I guess the first time we really began hanging out is when we did No Strings together?"

Kutcher then said, "Wait, it's also weird because my wife was shooting basically the same movie, called Friends With Benefits."

Both Ivan Reitman's No Strings Attached and Will Gluck's Friends With Benefits are about a man and a woman who decide to turn their friendship sexual without becoming a romantic couple, realizing later that that's more complicated than they thought.
