Jessica Biel Auditioned for Mila Kunis' Role in 'Friends With Benefits'

I guess we’re all still pretending Friends With Benefits doesn’t look like the worst movie of all time, even though we’ve had to bring in two U.S. Marines to try to save it.

The latest news is that Jessica Biel, Justin Timberlake’s on/off girlfriend originally tried out for the female lead role that ultimately went to Mila Kunis.

"She was actually a huge fan of the project and screen-tested for it years ago," David Newman, one of the film’s screenwriters, told the New York Post's Page Six at Monday's premiere in NYC.

But in the end, it was tough deciding between two hot chicks. For all the embarrassment that the director has to live with after putting out this movie, at least he got to ogle video auditions of Mila Kunis and Jessica Biel for hours on end.

“We’re not the director,” Newman responded after reporters asked why Biel was rejected. “She’s great and adorable—smoking hot! Mila was fated for the role.”

At least Biel’s real-life relationship with Timberlake is going okay. The couple called it quits in March, but have been “quietly seeing each other again” according to a source.

Unfortunately, Justin is rumored to be “quietly seeing” every single woman in Hollywood from Mila to Olivia Wilde.

“They decided to give it another shot,” the source added.
