So how old were the actors when they started filming the production and when the movie came out? We’ve got the answer for you below!
How old were Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher in No Strings Attached?
Natalie Portman was born on June 9, 1981, while Kutcher is an Aquarius who celebrates his birthday on February 7. He was born in 1978. So there’s about a three year age difference between the two actors.
The movie first made its debut in January 2011, but filming started in May 2010. That means Portman was 28 years old (about a month away from turning 29) when the cameras first started rolling. And she was 29 years old when the film was released to the world. Kutcher was 31 years old when filming began, and 32 when their project made its theatrical debut. In 2023, the actress is 42 and the actor is 45.
No Strings Attached follows Emma (Portman) and Adam (Kutcher) who are lifelong friends looking to bring a physical aspect to their friendship. They make a deal to keep things “purely physical,” and without falling in love, per the synopsis. Though in typical rom-com fashion, we all know that’s not going to happen!
No Strings Attached starring Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher is now streaming on Netflix.
