Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis have repeatedly insisted they are just friends, no benefits. But after the starlet defended her co-star's thespian leanings -- in Russian, no less -- during a recent press conference in Moscow, the romance rumblings have unsurprisingly started up again.
Seems Justin and Mila, who are currently on the European leg of their romcom's promotional tour, looked "cute together" while dining with a large group of people at Nobu in London on Tuesday night, according to the London Daily Mail.
"They were cozying up to each other, and she barked at him -- 'Jay!' -- to follow her," relays an onlooker. "It was like a real girlfriend bark."
As opposed to those annoying "arfs" from one's fake and/or blowup girlfriend.
Another diner also serves up a dubious observation of Mila's supposedly gal pal-like behavior, noting, "She yelled at Justin across the restaurant in a way that can only mean one thing."
That one thing: That the British tabloids apparently believe that all girlfriends are yappy and demanding.
Anyhoo, Timberlake, who sparked reunion talk after a meet-up last month with ex-girlfriend Jessica Biel, did shots with Kunis and the rest of their crew before calling it a night.
The co-stars made separate exits from Nobu (left), but that wasn't enough to avoid a paparazzi confrontation. One of Justin's bodyguards was arrested after a shutterbug alleged he'd been assaulted.
