Mila Kunis attends the Marine Corps Ball with Sgt. Scott Moore in North Carolina

After a lot of back-and-forth over the summer, Mila Kunis officially agreed to be Sgt. Scott Moore’s date at his Marine Corps Ball this weekend. Justin Timberlake had gotten an invitation from a female Marine, and he went last weekend. But Mila’s invite was the one to start this whole thing where Joe Citizens (or G.I. Joe Citizens) began posting cutesy videos asking out celebrities. Sgt. Moore was the ground-breaker, and this weekend he got his dream date. Mila Kunis arrived in Greenville, NC, and these are a few of the official Marine Corps photos of Mila and Scott Moore. CoughBANGScough. She apparently had a wonderful time on her magical Marine Corps Ball date:

Just call her the belle of the ball.

Mila Kunis made good on the promise she made last summer when she attended a Marine Corps Ball in Greenville, N.C., on Friday with Sgt. Scott Moore.

According to local news station WNCT, the actress arrived to the venue just before 2:30 p.m., where she was quickly whisked away from the media. The news station caught a shot of Kunis, 28, being escorted from the Pitt-Greenville Airport to the Greenville Convention Center.

The two were “enjoying the night,” Marine spokesperson Capt. Scott Sasser told Access Hollwood.

“She’s going to get a chance to learn about the Marine Corps, and we’re all going to have a great time celebrating the Marine Corps birthday,” Sasser said prior to the ball, which marked 236 years of military history.

Moore asked Kunis out via YouTube after making a bet with a fellow Marine when he was serving his second combat deployment in Musa Qala, Afghanistan.

“I always thought I had a chance, and sometimes, that’s all you need,” he said in July of popping the question to his famous date.

And Kunis wasn’t the only one adding a little star power to a Marine Corps Ball. A week prior, Friends with Benefits costar Justin Timberlake had “one of the most moving evenings” of his life at another Marine Corps Ball in Richmond, Va., with combat instructor Kelsey De Santis.

“What I didn’t know was how moved I would be by the whole experience,” said Timberlake, 30, who also received an invite this past summer right after Kunis. “I felt so proud to be there. I felt like I was getting a chance to be among my heroes.”

I know many of you hate this whole thing where celebrities are put on the hot seat and asked out by members of the public, but I still kind of like it. Especially when it comes to members of our armed forces, who used to get a lot more attention from Hollywood. So few of these “big” celebrities do any kind of work with the USO, so it’s nice to see a young actress like Mila taking an interest in our military personnel. And for goodness sake, this is a good-publicity bonanza for Mila, and you can beat that there are hundreds of young actresses who wish that they had gotten invited to this event, so they could look this good.

    wow she looks like a different person in the last pic

  2. rjennica says:

    Her date, G.I. Joe Citizens is gorgeous! He beats most of the top actors in Hollywood in the looks department. I think they should date!

  3. Hanna says:

    How wonderful! But what’s up with Mila’s bangs? Is it just me or do they look butchered??

  4. MorticiansDoItDeader says:

    “What I didn’t know was how moved I would be by the whole experience,” said Timberlake. “I felt so proud to be there. I felt like I was getting a chance to be among my heroes.”

    This would be such a nice statement, coming from someone else. It just sounds SO contrived coming from Timberlake.

    Mila looks stunning. One of the most beautiful actresses in Hollywood.

  5. Kachy says:

    Thats’ 9ce,and he’s so cute

  6. Eileen says:

    Great choice of outfit! Not too flashy, she looks beautiful and dang, he’s HOT!!

  7. d says:

    Haha this was actually my event!

    She was super nice and you could tell that they hit it off. I was annoyed about it at first bc it meant an extra headache for me and my staff but it was a wonderful evening.

    kudos to her for going through with it and lets make sure to celebrate our USMC :)

    • MarineLovR says:

      I’ve never replied to one of these things and it’s silly for me to do so now — this is so far removed from me and my life. I became very close friends with a very high caliber group of marines a few years ago (in Geneva). I’m glad Mila followed through on the date, and I think it was to her benefit that you took the time to arrange things so she could be there. Another instance of marine classiness. Thank you.

  8. Seal Team 6 says:

    1. She looks wonderful, and good for her, and

    2. CELEBITCHY’S COMMENT SECTION COMPLETELY CHANGED WHILE I WAS TAKING A SHOWER!!!!!

  9. Rita says:

    OOOOO, a new format. Cool.

    It’s so nice she followed through with this but of course not following through would have been a disaster.

    I’d like to think I’d make this an annual event if I were famous, beautiful, wealthy, and…if my husband would allow it. Yes, dancing with a young Marine sounds like fun.

  10. The Bobster says:

    Wonderful! She looks great. Now she knows what dating a real man is like.

  11. Dudette says:

    She looks great. I like the bangs on her alot.

  12. thinkaboutit says:

    Wow he is super sexy! No wonder she said yes, I would have been all over that invitation too!

  13. xxodettexx says:

    loving mila [even her bangs trauma, it goes well with her face!]

    love the format change, took me a while to realize why my eyes felt something was “off” [loooong night last night]

  14. theaPie says:

    Good for Mila. Love the format change CB!!

  15. pwal says:

    Wow… Mila looks exquisite. She’s channeling Audrey Hepburn big time.

    And kudos to her for being a woman of her word.

  16. Str8Shooter says:

    Love this girl even more now…and I’ll give props to JT as well for keeping his promise. So nice and RARE to hear celebs at least making an attempt to be nice people and not stuck-up aholes like the majority of them are.

    Refreshing!

  17. okeydokey says:

    Ack – I fear change.

    Good for Mila. She looked great (except for the bangs and I normally have no issues with bangs)

  18. Kit says:

    Great thing to do and she looks stunning.
    This def makes up for her hooking up with JT IMO.

    • taylor says:

      Well then I guess you can feel even better, because she never hooked up with him. Those were all rubbish reports. She did a film with him and formed a friendship. Nothing more.

    • taylor says:

      I guess it is fair to say I can only be as sure she didn’t as you can be sure they did. But when there is no evidence whatsoever that they did, and I mean none…I choose to believe not only the two that have denied it, but also the close friends in their circle that have denied it. I also don’t think he would be back with Jessica if they had. But I believe Mila has a lot of character. She had one boyfriend for 8 years. And I don’t believe for a second she is the type that would get involved with somebody that was in a relationship. Which he was at the time they shot the film.

      • Kit says:

        Fair enough, we can agree to disagree. And yes, she doesn’t strike me as the type to hook up with a guy that’s attached. She seems like a really cool person, that what you see is what you get.
        But he wasn’t attached during promotion and denials from celebs or their circle are not exactly reliable imo. Still, I hope you’re right and I’m wrong. I have a very active dislike of JT at the moment.

    • taylor says:

      Yea, no problem, we can agree to disagree. I do think Mila has a track record of having strong character. Again she had a boyfriend starting at 18 and the relationship lasted for 8 years. She just is not the type to move from guy to guy, let alone get involved with someone that is involved. And you are correct, for a short time while they were on the promotion tour JT was single. I still don’t think that would mean anything happened. I still choose to trust a source, such as Mila herself, as opposed to some blog site, where anybody can make up any rumor they want, with no facts whatsoever. I personally believe if they had there would be some kind of trail of evidence. In the world we live in today where celebs can’t get a cup of coffee together without a picture showing up, there would have been some kind of smoking gun.

  19. Sillyone says:

    What happened to her face? That doesn’t look like her at all.

  20. Kiki says:

    I think Mila gained a little weight, and I totally like it.

    I don’t like this comment change… But maybe it’s because I have to get used to it.

    Anyways, thanks Kaiser and Celebitchy for always thinking about ways of improving this site.

  21. Heavenbound says:

    She looks stunning, I’m glad that she kept her promise. After all these are the fans that keep these celebrities in business. Many of these celebrities forget who pays there bills, It’s the fan base don’t forget it!!

  22. samira677 says:

    Mila never said she wasn’t going. Just because people through rumors around doesn’t mean they’re true.

    Also Kristin Calawhatever from The Hills went to the event too. I only saw one website talk about her. So no this event wasn’t a guarantee publicity bonanza.

  23. cheryl says:

    She looks lovely and kudos to all three celebs for helping honor our service men and women!

  24. L says:

    Oooh reply buttons. This is going to be epic.

  25. SolitaryAngel says:

    Good for her, OMG that Marine is hot!!! And I am loving the new format as well. 

    Many thanks also to Seal Team 6 for helping to clear the air in here LMAO  jk

  26. misstrishm says:

    She’s a very pretty girl. They look like they had a good time. Her date is not bad looking either.

  27. kazoo says:

    her eye make up is amazing. i love that she wore something understated. imagine some attention whore like blake lively going to an event like this…she would’ve shown up looking like a tacky call girl.

  28. alibeebee says:

    wouldn’t it be sweet if they actually started to date. we all know he’s a gentleman… ahh sigh Cause he sure is hot!

  29. Lady D says:

    Rocking new format Celebitchy. Like it.

  30. PrincessMe says:

    OT: My BB appreciates the mobile site, thanks CB.

  31. The Original Mia says:

    Mila looked amazing. I like her bangs. Sgt Moore is kinda cute.

    Love the new comment section. Thanks, CB!

  32. Stephanie says:

    She is a stunning woman. Glad she and JT honored their word.

  33. Camille says:

    Mila looks beautiful. Love the new fringe (or ‘bangs’ to the Americans lol).

  34. Kloops says:

    Still don’t like how it went down and it was JT who was the douche in this, not the Marine, but it’s nice that she went and she looked lovely.

  35. Samigirl says:

    Sorry if someone already mentioned it, but I really like that she did either The Pledge of Allegiance, or put her hand over her heart for The Star Spangled Banner (having never been to one of these events, I don’t know the status quo). I see so many people texting or fiddling, arms crossed, etc. when they do these things (Military, I understand, hats, parade rest, etc.), so I really appreciate someone who will do that. Just my own little two cents :)

  36. Lauren says:

    Classy, kind young woman. Mila looks lovely.

  37. jane16 says:

    She’s a doll! We love Mila in our family. Very talented, beautiful, and down to earth.

  38. k says:

    Never mind the bangs. How did she get a ahold of my Grammy’s gown?

  39. Laughing Librarian says:

    She looks lovely, not like a standout celebrity. I think that’s the point. Normal people don’t obsess about bangs like C/B people do.
    Whatever happened with Linda Hamilton subbing for Betty White’s proposed date?

  40. GoodCapon says:

    Her hair style reminded me of Princess Leia’s for some reason.

    So nice of her to come there.

  41. Sue says:

    She looked great. Dressed appropriately and classy. Hope the Sgt had a great time.

  42. Jessica says:

    Hey – I love the new setup here!!

  43. Kim says:

    So talented, so classy, so beautiful. She was trying to be more conservative and not look at me Im on a red carpet. That just shows her classiness.

  44. I Choose Me says:

    Woohoo! New comment format. I’m liking it.

  45. Jacqueline says:

    I love Mila! She is really sweet. It didnt seem like she wanted to go but since she was publicly invited, why not?
    Y’all remember that kid that gave Megan Fox a rose?

  46. Joe Z says:

    I’d ask Mila out—-she could give u one of two answers. Maybe she wishes more non-Hollywood fellas would take a shot…
    If Mila came to Chicago, i’d take her for a burger ad even get some cheddar and bacon just to keep it simple! Then, I’d take her to a corner joint for cheap canned beer, pool and am old juker that still takes quarters! I ain’t high class and I ain’t white trash!lol
    funny and pretty—-what’s better?—not
    much!!
