Mila Kunis Will Make Dreams Come True at Marine Corps. Ball
Los Angeles-based actress Mila Kunis will soon travel to Greenville, North Carolina to give some marines the best night of their life.
Not like that -- get your mind out of the "Black Swan" gutter. Kunis' plans are wholesome, clean and all-American. After seeing a video that Sgt. Scott Moore of the 3rd Battalion 2nd Marines in Musa Qala, Afghanistan posted on YouTube asking her to the Marine Corps. Ball on November 18, Kunis has agreed to go, reports FOX News.
In the 19-second video, posted below, Moore is seen hamming it up and adorably over-confidently suggesting that the actress "take a second to think about" the invitation, and get back to him. The video was brought to her attention by her "Friends With Benefits" co-star Justin Timberlake, who also reportedly got her to say yes. FOX reports:
...when FOX411 asked Kunis about the invitation over the weekend, her “Benefits” co-star, Justin Timberlake, assured Moore he was going to make it happen. “Have you seen this? Have you heard about this? You need to do it for your country,” Timberlake asked Kunis excitedly, before sending out a direct message to Moore. “I’m going to work on this, man. This needs to go down.”
