Having body doubles to shoot action sequences in films is a common thing. Something similar is also followed in the case of filming bold scenes and Mila Kunis opted for the same when it came to filming n*de scenes in her 2011 film, Friends With Benefits. The romantic comedy follows Jamie and Dylan, who make their friendship complicated after they decide to take the next step in their relationship while keeping it casual.

While she did ask for body doubles, it was not for all her scenes in the film. The actress shared that she had some revealing scenes in the movie, but she did not want to give out too much. The Black Swan actress initially found the script of the 2011 film “outdated.”

She and her co-star convinced the director, Will Gluck, to rewrite by adding a modern touch to the story. The film went on to make $149.5 million at the box office, and fans loved Kunis and Timberlake’s chemistry in the film.
