Justin Timberlake Accepts Marine’s Ball Invite, Along With Mila Kunis
The lucky Marine whose request to Mila Kunis to accompany him to a military formal won’t be the only one there with a big name Hollywood date.
It all started when a video made by Sgt. Scott Moore went viral, asking Kunis to accompany him to the November ball. Kunis accepted, then found out she might be prevented from going due to work commitments, but vowed to try to make it happen. Before Kunis accepted, however, Friends With Benefits costar Justin Timberlake learned of the video and pressured Kunis in an interview:
“Have you seen this? Have you heard about this? You need to do it for your country,” Justin asked her during the interview.
Apparently, to Timberlake, what’s good for the goose is good for the gander- the singer turned actor didn’t hesitate when a female Marine posed the very same question to him after hearing of Sgt. Moore’s success in nabbing a date with Kunis:
“I’ll tell you what: I accept,” he told reporters of Kelsey De Santis‘s request that he accompany her to the Washington, D.C. ball. “But not because she shouted out one of my songs, which I do love,” he joked (De Santis referenced his hit “Cry Me A River” in her video invite). “And not because she had all those beefcake military guys behind her to intimidate me.”
