‘No Strings Attached’ starring Golden Globe winner Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher opened yesterday nationwide. The film is a romantic comedy about a guy and a girl who are friends with benefits and agree to have sex with each other with no emotional attachments. The film is currently playing in the Flint area at NCG Trillium Grand Blanc. One Flint area moviegoer told me she would be glad to see Portman in something light, following her dark performance in ‘Black Swan’, and thinks Kutcher is the perfect match up for her in the movie. Kutcher stopped by ‘Late Night with Jimmy Fallon’ to discuss his cover story in ‘Men’s Fitness’, his new film and to play a game of Water War with Fallon.
Fallon flashed ‘Men’s Fitness’ magazine up, to show Kutcher on the cover. Then he paged to the interview and read that Kutcher likes to stay fit so he can protect his family if Armageddon comes. Kutcher laughed and said it was just a joke, but the girl doing the story didn’t get it. Kutcher, who is the first person to reach 1 million followers on Twitter, said he tried to tweet about the interview afterward to say that he was joking and some Armageddon enthusiasts wanted to come after him.
Kutcher said his new film ‘No Strings Attached’ is funny and fantastic, and his co-star Portman is ‘fantastic’ too. Fallon and Kutcher both agreed that Director Ivan Reitman is amazing, having previously directed comedic greats ‘Ghostbusters’, ‘Stripes’ and ‘Dave’.
Following the interview, Fallon and Kutcher played Water War (see attached video). They sat on opposite sides of a table with a deck of cards between them, and 5 glasses of water each at their side. Fallon explained it was just like traditional War. However, whoever won the round, would get to throw a glass of water in the loser’s face. And, whoever got rid of all 5 glasses of water first would win the game and the privilege of shooting the loser with the water cannon. Kutcher gave fair warning that he is exceptional at war.
Kutcher won the first round and threw a glass of water at Fallon. Fallon came back a winner for round 2, so he gleefully pitched a glass of water at Kutcher. The faces and sounds they made were hilarious. Kutcher won the rest of the rounds, pitching water glass by glass at Fallon’s face. Kutcher was declared the winner. They stood for Kutcher to blast Fallon with the water cannon. Needless to say, Fallon was soaked.
