Q: Is Friends With Benefits more of a movie thing or a real-life thing? Q: Who handles “Friends with Benefits” better — men or women? I think if they had to be serious, and they were, ‘bounce around,’ then it would have been incredibly awkward. Justin: The reason I didn’t fall asleep was I took a nap before we shot those scenes. Q: One of the things that was refreshing in this film is that in most romantic comedies no matter how much comedy has been going on, when it comes to the intimate scenes, it suddenly becomes very serious. How much of a challenge was that and how do you research that? That was a movie that constantly came up when we were workshopping.
What is the worst piece of relationship advice that somebody gave you that blew up in your face? Mila: [To Justin] I think I gave you the heads’ up. [Director] Will [Gluck] was, “All you have to do is lie in this position.” So, I turned to him and said, “I am going to close my eyes for five minutes.” He was like, “OK.” I fell asleep. Mila: We sat around and verbalized the scenes for two months. Justin: Was it for ‘Casablanca’ that they dug a ditch for Humphrey Bogart? What I love about that movie is it is a man and a woman, they are equals, they treat each other like equals and they talk about their generation and what society, at that time, collectively viewed as love, sex and relationships. We wanted to make a modern, generational comedy in that way. with them, all of a sudden it opened up to me in a completely different way because you’re like, “Wow, there is more to Dylan than I thought.” When I read the movie, I looked at all he is subconsciously dealing with: He is dealing with his father, who is his hero, who is suffering from early-onset Alzheimer’s Disease. Her relationship didn’t work out, but she also has a son. He is doing naturally what he learned from his father, but at the same time, he is dealing with what his father is dealing with.

“Friends with benefits” is a new concept for a new millennium. When Jamie successfully lures Dylan away from his L. job to New York, the two discover they have a lot in common and begin spending a lot of friend time together. Justin: Also, at the end of the day, it is your experience, so man up and make your own decisions. When you first meet him, he comes across as this stark individual but what you realize is that it is just that character’s sense of humor. That is what I like about a lot of the relationships in this movie.
