Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake 'platonically' grope

Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake grope at MTV Movie Awards Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake's rumor-squashing skills are a bit lacking, but their movie-promoting skills for the upcoming flick "Friends With Benefits" seem to be spot on.

Kunis and Timberlake's "platonic" gropes at Sunday's MTV Movie Awards at the Gibson Amphitheatre continued the award show's awkward banter, kicked off by host Jason Sudeikis during the live telecast.

When the "Friends With Benefits" stars took the stage to present the award for best male performance (which, surprise, surprise, went to Robert Pattinson), the pair actually presented a failed attempt to prove that they are simply friends with benefits.

"You and I have never dated," said Timberlake, 30.

"No, no. We are like brother and sister," added Kunis, 27.

"Totally platonic relationship, which is why I can do this," Timberlake said as he groped the actress' breasts.

"And it's why I can do this," Kunis said, reciprocating with a grope of the singer/actor's crotch.

Um, yes. That actually happened. On television. Fittingly, Timberlake made a remark about who, or what, actually gave the best male performance -- and it had nothing to do with the nominees.

Kunis had previously told Ellen DeGeneres that it was difficult getting undressed in front of her costar.

"It's very awkward. I mean, the truth is, we got to have very uncomfortable scenes for two weeks," she said in December. "There's like 150 crew men watching, and you see each other's bits and pieces. The whole thing is just wrong!"

But, you know, groping is a whole 'nother thing, right?

What'd you think of the onstage bit -- hilarious or inappropriate? Does it make you want to see "Friends With Benefits," which hits theaters July 22? Sound off in comments.
