Mila Kunis agrees to go to Marine Corps Ball after video request


Over the weekend, MSNBC had a little bit about this Marine named Scott Moore who is stationed in Afghanistan. Sgt. Moore plans ahead, you see, and he wanted to line up a date for the Marine Corps Ball in November. His ideal date? Mila Kunis! So he got a great idea – make a YouTube video asking Mila to go with him to the Ball, and set up an email account where Mila (or her people) could get in touch with him. Here’s the video:

Well, good news. Mila Kunis is awesome! She has accepted Sgt. Moore’s invitation after some prodding from Justin Timberlake and a Fox News correspondent.

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.”

After questioning her publicist if she knew about the invitation, the clearly flattered 27-year-old actress agreed.

“I’ll go, I’ll do it for you,” she said, turning to Timberlake. “Are you going to come?”

“They don’t want me! They want you,” Timberlake responded. “You need to do it for your country.”

Kunis nodded.

“I’ll do it,” she confirmed.

So get that limo reserved, Sgt. Moore!

[From Fox News]

I hope she follows through – my guess is that she will, now that she knows about it and has publicly agreed. If she follows through, she will be supremely cool. And if she follows through, something tells me that there will be quite a few servicemen taking to YouTube videos to ask out their favorite crushes.

    Oh, I just fell in love with her a little more.

    As a veteran of Marine Corps Balls, they can be fun and/or tedious. But it’s all very meaningful, and the men & women look so beautiful in their dress blues!

  2. Anti-icon says:

    Mila Kunis is awesome, in so many ways. This dude will have a lifetime of memories from his bravery… the battlefield of balls. Cute story.

  3. brin says:

    Nicest story by far, Mila is a stand-up gal.

  4. mia girl says:

    My girl-crush on Mila Kunis lives on!

    It’s gonna suck to be any of the other women at that ball.

  5. bluhare says:

    Well she’d look like a bitch if she said no . . . but even so that’s great she’s going to be his date. He must be over the moon right now!

    Hmmmm. Maybe I should do a YouTube video asking Gabriel Aubry if he’ll go to the movies with me.

  6. Mr. Greek says:

    I must be getting older…I haven’t a freakin’ clue as to who this woman is. Her beautiful eyes drew me here! LOL! Although, my beautiful girlfriend has the most gorgeous peepers on the planet. Anyway, I don’t agree with or support this BS war in Afganistan (or Iraq) – it’s all about the Caspian oil pipeline and the drug cartel there – I do think it’s sweet of her to do this for the serviceman, who is an unfortunate pawn of the global elite.

  7. Jess says:

    She just won major points with me.

  8. Nessa says:

    Not only is Mila stunningly beautiful and funny, she is super sweet and a class act. Good on her. This brave marine deserves it!

  9. Jennifer says:

    That is way too sweet!!! Love it!

  10. fabgrrl says:

    What a sweet girl! A class act! do you think she would go out on a date with me if I made her a video? ;^)

    Wasn’t she “28″ earlier this year?

  11. J says:

    I love her xoxo ! That is the sweetest thing an actress can do . Wouldn’t it be great if they fell in love ( just wishful thinking ) . God bless her . It’s horrible over there .

  12. mary jones says:

    That is awesome! She is one of the most beautiful actresses in Hollywood inside and out.

  13. brin says:

    WTH? What happened to the Emma Watson Story?

  14. RHONYC says:

    he’s got some moxie that Sgt. Moore. good on him! it takes alot of guts for guys to ask girls out, let alone a famous actress on the internet.

    i bet it’ll be a great night for both. ;-)

    @ bluhare: lol! do it! hey, you never know. :-)

  15. LunaT says:

    That is too cute! I loved that he asked and I love that she said yes.

  16. The Bobster says:

    A wonderful gesture. And she might find out what it’s like dating a real man living in the real world instead of a Hollywood type.

  17. Smokey says:

    Mila rocks!

    I agree with Mia Girl – no matter what you wear you’ll never out do Mila in a party dress.

  18. Rita says:

    She’s been on a run for some time but her stock just went way up.

  19. WildChild says:

    She seems like a cool girl. For some reason, I am highly annoyed by Justin Timberlake.

  20. michelle says:

    Mr. Greek- you realize that calling someone a “pawn” is incredibly condescending, right? I’m sure you do. Just let this guy have his moment, geez.

  21. J O'C says:

    Oh, I LOVE HER!! How cool is she for doing this?! Love, love, love!

  22. Sloane Wyatt says:

    @#6. Mr. Greek: Too right what this damn war is really about!

    BUT, Honoring our servicemen and women who sacrifice their lives everyday “Their’s is not to question why, Their’s is but to do and die”, is never wrong.

    They nobly support our country, and I thank God for Mina, and all celebrities, who make time for our troops.

  23. ladybert62 says:

    That is very sweet and gracious of her to accept that clever invitation – I hope she and he have a great time!

  24. Kimbob says:

    If Mila does go to the ball w/Sgt. Moore, then that will be the shiz! An ultra-cool celeb indeed!

  25. Beth says:

    It will be cool if she follows through. Except for her, because the Marine Corps Ball is really boring.

  26. Klassy says:

    “”When you guys get home and face that anti-war protester, look him in the eye and shake his hand. Then wink at his girlfriend. She will smile, because she knows she’s dating a pu$$y (aka Mr. Greek)”

    -Commanding General, 1st Marine Division

    Anyway, Mila Rocks. The Marine Corps ball is soo much fun (if you are enlisted….maybe Beth went with a officer who had to behave himself?) because these guys fight hard and play hard. Hope she has a blast!

  27. Faye says:

    She’s awesome. She honestly seems like such a cool person, and hasn’t let the fact that she’s famous and beautiful go to her head. Contrast this to that picture of sour faced Megan Fox storming past that kid holding a rose out to her.

  28. taylor says:


    She’s 27, born in August of 83.

    What a great story, more proof of how awesome she is.

  29. katnip says:

    I like her a lot.

    but I think situations like this puts celebrities in an awkward position. If she had had to say no would people have turned around and attacked her as uncaring and selfish by not supporting a service man that is risking his life. Sometimes as much as you want to do something you may not be able to.

    And yes a lot more will do the same and again the celebrity is caught between a rock and a hard place.

    I think her saying yes is awesome, but I hope this will not be a new trend.. like all those service dad’s surprising their kids at school. After a while it becomes a gemmic. I’m not cynical really I just see the other side of these situations.

    People applaud you when you say yes. but say no and all heck will break loose.

  30. taylor says:


    As much as I like the story, I agree she was placed in a real difficult situation. She could have declined for any number of resonable reasons and she would have been attacked for it.

  31. Gal says:

    He rocks! I’m so glad she’s going – what a treat!!!

  32. Mr. Greek says:

    @ Michelle: The soldier in question IS a pawn for the elite. If you could properly assimilate what I was writing, you would see it was not directed at him, per se, rather the ones above him who have him and his fellow soldiers there to fight their corporate war. Perhaps if we could all wake up and see beyond the Fox News headlines, we’d realize it’s a damn waste for this young man to be there in the first place.

    @ Sloane: I’ve seen your other comments elsewhere, and take you to be an intelligent woman. BUT…I disagree…it IS our collective duty to stand up and question as to WHY. This soldier is brave, no doubt, but he is serving the corrupt needs of the illuminati men who couldn’t give a DAMN about his or his fellow soldiers welfare or lives.

    Where have all the flowers gone, I ask?

  33. Schnauzers!!! says:

    Ha! So cool that she’s going to go!!

    And Mr. Greek, I am married to an amazing man who happens to be a soldier.

    You can call them pawns, you can call them what you want. They knew what they were signing up for and 95% of the soldiers I know would do it again in a heartbeat. Plain and simple, it doesn’t matter to the soldier what the motivation is on the “big boss man” front. THE SOLDIERS motivation is to keep people like YOU and me safe and give YOU and me the right to speak our minds without being caned or WORSE.

  34. jc126 says:

    No one should denigrate soldiers, Marines, anyone in the military, but implying that all war protesters are “pussies” is moronic. There’s plenty of vets who protested the war.

  35. dr.bombay says:

    @Mr. Geek: *Sigh* supporting our troops has NOTHING to do with supporting the war or the elite, for that matter. Do people actually still think like this? Talk to a Vietnam vet, why don’t you, and see if they agree with your sentiment!

    What would you suggest we do? Turn our backs on them and let them go crazy from their experiences, all alone? They HAVE to be there, or they will face serious consequences. Yeh, they voluntarily joined the service, but some of them literally had no life otherwise or simply want to serve.

    If you have such a problem with all of this, run for office somewhere. Let us support our men & women.

  36. Shy says:

    That will be a very awkward date. I bet that guy will be so shy and will not know what to talk to her about.

    Look at him. He was so embarrassed and shy that he did’t even took off his shades. That is the first signal. That is not a man who knows how to talk to women and knows them and can be easy. That is one of those men who will love or like someone for years but will be too shy to ask her out.

    He probably likes Mila and was talking about her a lot. So his buddies probably make him to do this video for fun. But they never though SHE WOULD AGREE :)

  37. mel says:

    She seems cool…but that moron JT saying she should do it…would he go on a you tube video date request…and what, exactly, has he done for HIS country lately. He is disgusting.

  38. jane16 says:

    Aww. What a cute story. Way to go Mila!

  39. Samihami says:

    Mr. Greek-this story has nothing whatsoever to do with your opinions of the war and what you think the reasons for it may be. I realize that you believe yourself to be the only one on thse boards who has a valid thought, opinion or belief; however,you are being pretty offensive about a sensitive topic for no reason. Please knock it off and stick to the topic. This is not a political forum nor is this topic political. It’s just a nice story about a nice actress.

  40. MorticiansDoItDeader says:

    Ooh-rah! Good for her!

    Although I agree that JT is a jerk for putting her on the spot.

  41. Jessica says:

    That is very nice of her.

  42. Silver Eagle says:

    Mila –

    Prepare to be among greatness like you have never experienced before. The Marine Corps Ball is not with or about Hollwood stuff. You will be surrounded by Real American Heroes and the Best Warriors on the Planet! As awsome as these Marines are and as good as they look in their dress blues, they will have the utmost respect and courtesy towards you. I hope you will ask questions and listen to these warriors tell their stories as it will be a learning experience! I hope Young Hollywood takes note of Mila as this is the kind of thing Great Stars do for their fans. Mila – I wish you well in Health and in your Career!!! Semper Fi~

  43. 4evaRedd says:

    Oh, Mila, just to see those Marines in their uniforms….EYE CANDY!!!! Enjoy yourself to the fullest; military balls can become a bit dull at times, but then they are still plenty of fun. Make the most of your opportunity to spend some time with our military people; they are incredibly talented in each of their fields and are so very brave to continue their careers with low pay and long deployments. I suspect you will have a wonderful time, and if this young man was brave enough to use the internet then he deserves a beautiful young woman on his arm. JT put you on the spot but you came through; kudos! He’ll have to sit at home and wonder just how much fun you’ll be having. Oh, well….

  44. Esmom says:

    Is it just me or wasn’t it kind of bitchy of her to tie her acceptance to JT, saying “I’ll do it for you.” Like they are in on a joke together. Sorta disrespectful if you ask me.

    That’s a pretty ignorant thing to say, and please don’t assume what my thoughts are, because you’re wrong. I am not being offensive, I am being a realist.

    Dr. Bombay, I beg to differ with you, completely.
    And as for the Vietnam war vets, spare me your deluded pride. HOW many of these men have been treated like a disease since they returned? HOW many of these men suffer extreme post war mental and physical disorders? HOW many of these men are homeless, destitute, and have been literally thrown away and ignored by the government, just as their contemporary Iraq and Afghanistan soldier colleagues? HOW many vets attempt or are successful at suicide, because they CANNOT get the help they so desperately need? So DON’T TELL ME what is WHAT! For Christ sake, this nation has morphed into mindless sheep who sit back and let Fox News work their BS spin into their brains.

    My original point was and is this story may be “nice”, but the fact is this is a young man who is there for reasons other than the propaganda spin. This is a man whose government could not give ONE DAMN about.


  47. NoFrank says:

    You go, girl. Having been to many Marine Corps balls in my life (my husband retired as a MSgt) I have only two words of advice:

    1. Don’t eat the cake. It’s always crappy. Always.

    2. Bring a wrap. I’ve never gone to a MC ball in any venue where it wasn’t freezing. Shivering and turning blue in a strapless gown is not attractive.

    Otherwise, have fun, and bless you for going. :o )

  48. dr.bombay says:

    @Mr. Geek: You’re actually making my point for me, you imbecile. My suggestion would be that you take some remedial reading comprehension courses before you make reactionary rants in such a juvenile fashion. Then, I would suggest re-reading what you write, as your 2 posts actually conflict themselves.

    My advise to you is: (read it well as I WILL NOT respond to you after this, I don’t want to waste my fingers’ energy) before you hang your comments out in cyberspace, make sure they MAKE SENSE.

    Comprende, Mr. Geek?…..oh, and I would also suggest a little less caffeine in your diet.

  49. Ruffian9 says:

    This is a gossip site, Mr Greek.
    “pawn of the global elite”. Get over yourself & f**k off.

    Also, I don’t watch Fox.

  50. BoPeep says:

    Is that guy Greek, Geek, whatever, for real? Is he writing his posts whilst holding a dictionary in the other hand? LOL.
