The plot of ballet-based thriller Black Swan, which opens in the UK today, sees Natalie Portman's crazed prima ballerina come to believe that her sexy frenemy, as played by Mila Kunis, is plotting to steal her career. When the two actors' subsequent projects come to our screens, audiences may be forgiven for thinking that life had imitated art. Portman and Ashton Kutcher are soon to star in No Strings Attached, a film about two friends who start having casual sex before, inevitably, falling in love. The project was previously entitled Friends With Benefits, until its producers learned of another production with an identical name, starring Kunis and Justin Timberlake as two friends who start having casual sex before, inevitably, falling in love.
