Last week, Justin Timberlake attended a Marine Corps Ball with Corporal Kelsey DeSantis. This week, it was Mila Kunis’ turn. Kunis accompanied Sgt. Scott Moore to the Marine Corps Ball at the North Carolina Convention Center.
So how did DeSantis and Moore score celebrity dates? Behold the power of the internet.
No media was allowed inside the ball, but Mila Kunis told Access Hollywood after the event:
“[I was surprised by] how genuine of a person he seems to be. He seems very selfless to me, so it was nice having him there. It was kind of like having one of our good friend’s at the table. He asked me a lot of questions about what I do and about me, which was really, really nice.”
After Timberlake’s Marine Corps Ball experience, he wrote a blog post saying:
“To all of you that serve every day for us… Ensuring our freedom, I say: My deepest gratitude to you. I’ve met so many of my heroes… From Michael Jordan to Michael Jackson. And, nothing makes me feel more honor and pride than when I get to meet one of you. Last night changed my life and I will never forget it. Thank you Corporal Kelsey DeSantis. Thank you for inviting me. And, thank you for being my hero.”
Apparently, all you have to do to get a date with a celebrity is ask. Lindsay Vonn recently attended a high school prom because a high school student was simply brave enough to ask her.
Do you have more respect for Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis since they followed through with their promises?
