Updated: Simple Question Earns Marine a Date With Mila Kunis

Check out Mila’s Response:


We’re pretty sure that Marine Sgt. Scott Moore isn’t the first guy stationed in Afghanistan to trying posting a YouTube video to get the attention of his favorite girl movie star, but we’re almost certain this is the first time that approach actually worked.

About a month ago, Sgt. Moore ( who’s serving with the 3rd Battalion 2nd Marines in Musa Qala, Afghanistan) posted a video inviting Forgetting Sarah Marshall and That 70s Show star Mila Kunis to be his date to the Marine Corps Ball on November 18th in Greenville, North Carolina. No one paid much attention until Mila and Justin Timberlake did an interview with FOX411 for their new movie Friends With Benefits. Reporter Hollie McKay asked Kunis about the video and Justin stepped in 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.

Let’s hope Sgt. Moore has the time of his life and the whole thing doesn’t turn into a real-life version of that old Lucille Ball movie Best Foot Forward:

    I heard on the news a WM (Woman Marine) posed the issue to Timberlake to step up and escort her to the ball. Lets see if he has what it takes. Way to go Mila. OhRah, SGT Moore.

    This is a great little story to make ya smile. And with all the bad it's nice to have some of these now and then. Good luck to Mila on her adventure with Sgt. Moore. I think it is great when anyone in the lime light takes time out the remember the reasons this country is so great. I hope they have an amazing time.

    Funny all around. Good job Sgt Moore. Ms. Kunis has really shown her character here. Not a stuck up star but a gracious lady.

    I'm glad that there are still a few good actors/actresses out there who are not so wrapped up in themselves that they forget about doing for others! I think it's great she said she would go. Enjoy the ball, Sgt. Moore!

    Mila Kunis did the voice over for Meg on Family Guy and was on "That 70's Show". She was not born in the US. She came from a former Soviet Bloc country and learned english watching Sesame Street. I think this is an Outstanding thing she is doing.
