Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake are denying that explicit photos leaked of the on-screen duo imply a real-life “friends with benefits” relationship.
“At no time did Mr. Timberlake and Ms. Kunis exchange inappropriate texts or emails,” their reps said in a statement to People magazine. “The insistence that there is any inappropriate correspondence between the two parties is entirely false.”
Four photos were hacked, two of which are of Timberlake and another of an unidentified male. One photo shows Timberlake in a seductive pose while another is of the pop singer wearing a pair of pink panties over his head, TMZ reported.
The other photo shows Kunis' face. The hacker also recovered salacious text exchanges between Kunis and Timberlake.
"We would like to confirm that the photo addressed in the media of Ms. Kunis was in fact not from any phone but from an inactive email account that has not existed in three years. In regards to the other photos in question, they were never exchanged between the two parties," the statement said.
"In closing, Mr. Timberlake would like us to make it clear that while he might write songs about putting things in boxes, he never has and definitely doesn't make a habit of taking any photos of them and sending them," the statement said. "Ms. Kunis would like us to add that while she is a fan of the song, she does not have nor has ever had photos of any male parts in her possession,” according to the Washington Post.
Mila Kunis is the latest starlet to be targeted by what authorities believe to be a hacker group targeting celebrity cell phones. Allegedly revealing photos of actress Scarlett Johansson surfaced online last week after her cell phone was reportedly hacked.
The FBI is investigating and intends to find “the person or groups responsible."
