Scarlett Johansson Declines Marine Corps Ball Invite

Last week in a creative 2-minute video uploaded to YouTube, Sgt. Dustin L. Williams asked the 26-year-old Lost in Translation star to accompany him to the Marine Corps Ball on November 10th.

Unfortunately for Sgt. Williams, Johansson had “prior commitments,” which left her unable to accept his offer.

Despite having to say “no” to the ball, Scarlett didn’t exactly leave the Sergeant empty handed – she sent him a case of champagne to express her appreciation for his service to the United States, accompanied by the following message:

“I feel incredibly honored to have been invited to the Marine Corps Ball by Sgt. Dustin L. Williams. Not only does Sgt. Williams deserve recognition for his bravery, selflessness and dedication to the United States and its people, but he also displays a cheeky talent for film making. Unfortunately due to prior commitments I will not be able to attend the Ball with you this year but I am sending you a case of Moet & Chandon with gratitude…”
