Transcript for Can Men and Women Be 'Just Friends'?
So, we have a picture, ashton kutcher ka ncanoodling with mila kunis. They're back there. Behind the tree. First time we showed it it looked like a tree but we've gotten it better. They are friends for year, 14 years, but mila insists they are still just friends they look like good friends. But looking at the pictures, says it looks like something else is going on. A new study from the university of michigan said men can't be friends with women. It sthas? But women can have just guy friends. So can men and women be friends? Let's go "toe to toe." We have michelle butteau. And the star of the upcoming reality show, "sit." I said sit. Jamie kennedy is here. Jamie. Hi, jamie, how are you? Good to see you. So, as you can see, many women -- oh, jamie, you tried to take his seat. That's very chivalrous. I have the grown-up chair with the handle? Can we be pals or not? I think men and women can be friends if the man is guy. Absolutely not. And sometimes they might fight over a closet item. No, I -- okay. I have four -- I have four. If the man is guy, if the man has already made love to the woman and then they got that out of the way. If the woman is not attracted to the man, and if the woman is mother. That's the only way I believe -- where do you -- you're not in college anymore. Here's the deal. Okay. First of all, you can't sleep with someone and be friends with them. That's all called friends with benefits. Because you always have that to tap into if you know what I'm saying. You can be friends, it can happen. Men and women can be friends. Okay. To say a man and woman can't be friends, are basically saying we're just good for one thing. That's a little massaousginistic. I have a friend that that if someone isn't initially attracted. That friendship leads to something else. Sex? Yeah, a guy is looking at you, and saying, okay, can we potentially make this physical? I do, I do. But I slept with every one of them. Josh, you remember that one time -- josh, weigh in on it, come on. Cave man, cave man. No, it's interesting. In doing this -- in doing "toe to toe," I think we find men and women actually feel the same way about a lot of things. This might actually be something where we have a little male-female divide. I'll tell you that. So you mean to tell me every female friend you've always had, you've always -- no, no, no. And co-workers. Two of my very bestriends, they've been great friends of mine from high school into college. They are women, and we've never been together, we're never going to be together. I know their husbands, they are fantastic people. It is possible. It is possible. Iope for you, america. I'm hope. I'm not saying you can't be friends. I'm not saying you can't be friends. I'm just saying, that's the elephant in the room. It's what jamie thinks men are always thinking -- you're never thinking that about your guy friends? No, I'm not that girl, though. They want to get with me and talk about other girls. I'm the wing man. Literally and figuratively. That's terrific. That's great. You can do it. It wasn't just wisconsin doing the polling, weo had a thoroughly scientific one on our websi website. 76% of you said sure men and women can be pals, 24% of you are lining up -- 76% were all women. No, just say the sex -- we don't think about it, we feel sex. I'm turned on right now.
