The comely Mila Kunis is in the news right now for two reasons: a) she’s joined the cast of Oz, the Great and Powerful for director Sam Raimi. Kunis will play Theodora, the youngest of the three witches (Glinda and Evanora) in the Disney prequel to the 1939 classic The Wizard of Oz. b) the actress is supposedly linked with the newly-single Justin Timberlake (the man wastes no time), who is also her Friends With Benefits costar, and she doesn’t want it to look as if she were the reason he and Jessica Biel went splitsville.

So she’s opting to slow things down. With the guy who brought sexy back? Never!

Besides romance stuff, Kunis has also been busy lately rushing to the defense of Black Swan co-star of Natalie Portman, who is accussed by ballerina dance double Sarah Lane as not doing the majority of her dancing in the movie.

“Natalie danced her a– off,” said Kunis. “I think it’s unfortunate that this is coming out and taking attention away from [the praise] Natalie deserved and got.”

Anyway, that’s way way too much information about such E!-type fodder, so let’s get right to the sexy photos of Kunis.
