Last night I attended the exclusive ‘DIMES’ premier of the movie ‘Friends with benefits’ hosted by the lovely Bonang Matheba courtesy of Brutal Fruit. I don’t usually like going out on Monday nights (for obvious reasons), but Justin Timberlake was enough reason for me to go watch this movie.

The Zone in Rosebank, Johannesburg was the venue and on my arrival it was already packed with lovely ladies and a few guys. I believe Brutal Fruit/ #BFDIMESwithB gave away tickets on their social networks to lucky fans who of course joined a select few VIP’s including media. While waiting for the movie to start, guests socialized over Brutal Fruit drinks and some snacks (couldn’t get enough of the sushi). Ticket winners also got a chance to rub shoulders with the ‘who’s who’ in the entertainment industry, while also taking pictures.

Chatting to Bonang…

To be honest I had already summed up my own conclusion of the movie, this after watching ‘no strings attached’, which kinda followed the same script. Hence I didn’t think ‘Friends with benefits’ would be any different, except the cast. ‘Friends with benefits’ stars the yummy Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis, two strangers who meet because of work, become friends, then friends who just have sex without emotion and finally fall in love. Compared to Aston Kuchter who starred in ‘No strings attached’, Justin pulled off a better job, I actually think he should focus more on his acting career than his singing and who knows he may just bag an Oscar or two. Mila “Jamie” for me was so effortless, charming, bubbly, cute, sexy, feisty almost everything about her character made you fall for the movie. Let me stop before I ruin the movie for those who are yet to see it.

I asked a couple of people what they thoughts about the movie and this is what they had to say…

  • “I thought it was f*cken awesome. I loved it! Justin is so hot OMG”- Boitumelo Thulo

With Boitumelo “Boity” Thulo

  • “It was a good movie to watch, one of those romantic movies that were kind of predictable but still good. Like you knew it was gonna happen, they were gonna fall in love”- Lerato Kganyago

  • “For me it was one of those movies you pass time with and it really entertained you. The sex scenes were…WOW, they really worked out for those I mean their bodies were just proper, lol”- Nthato Mashishi

  • “I thought it was great hey, I enjoyed it…so cute but I would have preferred for them to stay friends and not fall in love. Friendship first, relationship second”- Zizo Beda

Bonang Matheba

  • “It was fabulous hey, just fabulous. I loved it…I think Justin is so hot, they really looked good together”- Bonang Matheba

I spotted a couple of celebrities including:

Hulisani “CC” Ravele, who was accompanied by her long term partner Psyfo (I love them  )

Sipho “Psyfo” Ngwenya (below)

Celebrity make-up artist and now the new SA Elizabeth Arden Ambassador Nthato Mashishi

Soweto TV presenter Lerato Kganyago

Cga Bopha and partner Kiki Marli

Well done to the organizers for hosted such a fab event Cc Brutal Fruit, Melanie Ramjee, Raphael Benza and his team and the hostess Bonang Matheba.  I hear another #BFDimeswithB event is going down next week, time to fix me another outfit 😉
