Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake – the stars of Friends with Benefits – support New York's gay marriage law.

After years of campaigning, gay and lesbian couples began marrying in the Empire State on Sunday.

Kunis and Timberlake, whose film includes Woody Harrelson in a non-stereotypical gay role, talked to gay glossy The Advocate about marriage equality.

Twenty-seven-year-old Kunis said she believed marriage between two people of the same sex would be recognized throughout the United States in her lifetime.

I think it's great that there are people in this world who are willing to do something that should have been done 40, 50, 60 years ago. I also think it's great that 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' is over with. I think that a lot of things are moving in the right direction. And truly believe in my lifetime gay marriage will be legalized. I do. Like, federally legal. I do believe in that.”

I was stoked,” Timberlake, 30, said. “I mean, I was stoked that that happened. I think it's just … we're people and we're different, all of us. And we should be using our differences to bring ourselves closer together. You know? Not be afraid of something that we don't know.”

I'm proud that New York has balls to stand up for what's right,” he added.
