Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake Invited to Marine Corps Ball
And as the topic of new interests arises, Mila Kunis is shocked during her interview with Fox News by a Youtube request sent by a Marine.
The Marine, Sgt. Scott Moore, asked her if she would be his date to the Marine Corps Ball in Greenville, N.C. in November. The Marine Corps ball is an annual event that celebrated when the Marines were founded on Nov. 10, 1775 and it is one of the most important events for a Marine’s calendar.
Fox News asked Kunis if she knew about the video and she expressed her surprise at the invite. She attentively asked for further details about the video and the Ball event during her interview. According to Washington Times, she was “goaded to fulfill her patriotic duties” by her “Friends with Benefits” co-star, Justin Timberlake.
Moore’s video request for the date got through to Kunis and the actress accepted. During the interview she looked directly into the camera saying she was going to make this happen and said, “I’m with you.” So Moore has now gained fame as well as a date with the beautiful “Black Swan” actress.
Even Justin Timberlake has recently been asked to the Marine Corps Ball. According to the Boston Herald, after goading his own co-star to go to the ball, Timberlake received his own invitation from a female Marine. Marine Cpl. Kelsey De Santis sent out her own invite to Justin through a Youtube video so that the boys wouldn’t “have all the fun.”
The Herald stated that she appeared on CNN and said in her Youtube declaration to Timberlake, “You want to call out my girl Mila, well, I’m gonna call you out and ask you to come to the Marine Corps Ball with me on Nov. 12 in Washington, D.C, And if you can’t go, all I have to say is ‘Cry Me a River.’”
Since the singer put the pressure on Kunis to accept Moore’s invite it is only fair that he should to. He hasn’t responded yet to the invite. So only time will tell whether the co-stars will go through with their dates with the Youtube stars or not.
