Still plugging away on their latest project, Ashton Kutcher and Natalie Portman were spotted on the set of "Friends with Benefits" in Marina del Rey on Thursday afternoon (May 13).

The cute co-stars walked side-by-side as the cameras captured all of the action taking place in the Burton Chace Park locale.

In related news, Mr Kutcher recently stepped in to defend Miley Cyrus after the young actress received criticism over a recently released "lapdance" video of Miley partying with "The Last Song" producer Adam Shankman.

Sparking Ashton's ire was CNN’s Rick Sanchez, who said, “Could I just speak for a moment as a father and as someone who has an eight-year-old?…That’s troublesome. And just the physicality of it alone and the fact that she’s 16-years-old. And this isn’t posing for a Hollywood magazine or a picture, because we understand that when you get into that arena, you got to play along with that game kind of thing. I am troubled viewing that."

Responding via his Twitter account, Kutcher tweeted to Sanchez, “ur [sic] comments on Miley R completely unwarranted. She’s 17. What is this the movie Footloose? judgment is unbecoming.”

The former "That 70's Show" star added, “I think it’s important to think about the context of the event she was at. It’s not like she was at a club w/ some stranger.”
