‘I’ll do it’ — Flattered Mila Kunis responds to Marine Corps ball invitation

God bless the Internet.

As you may recall, last week Battle Rattle featured a video in which Sgt. Scott Moore asked actress Mila Kunis to his unit’s Marine Corps ball. Deployed to Musa Qala, Afghanistan, with 3rd Battalion, 2nd Marines, he’d set up a page on YouTube a few weeks before, but it hadn’t blown up online the way he probably was hoping.

The blog entry was an immediate hit, and the video exploded online afterward. It had just 1,000 views when I posted it here Thursday night, but as I write this, it now has more than 188,000. Moreover, the video was posted repeatedly to other sites Friday, including Sports Illustrated’s Hot Clicks and Tosh.O’s blog on Comedy Central’s website.

It gets better. As Fox News reports this morning, Kunis said during an interview this weekend that’d she’d do it. Justin Timberlake, her co-star on the forthcoming movie “Friends with Benefits,” urged her on the spot to do it, and she agreed.

“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.

Good for you, Sgt. Moore. Enjoy the ball.

Share.

  1. This is pretty darn cool. Kudos to Sgt Moore for having the courage to ask and Thank You to Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake for finding value in his request and agreeing to make this happen.

    Definintely PATRIOTS!!

  2. Darn…. I was hoping she’d say ‘No’ so he’d ask me next!

    Seriously….. good stuff, Ms. Kunis, enjoy the ball!

  3. LCpl Morrell on

    Thats one ballsy Sgt., you gotta admit. Enjoy the ball Ms. Kunis, its something youll never forget. A “One of a kind” experience.

  4. haha isn’t she from Ukraine or something? I know she’s not American, just funny they’d say do it for your country

  5. Im jealous wish I would of thought of it when I was in. Also even better she agreed, again I am jealous haha.

  6. Jake,

    The guy had douchebag written all over him. This guy is like the guido of fobbits. I am not too impressed with someone simply being able to speak semi-coherently and posting it on youtube. Are you?

  7. @1stCivDiv,

    Hey broheim, sounds like you’re gettin salty cause you’re jealous! I know I am! Mad props to the Sgt.

  8. This is not somthing that really need be discussed. The srgt asked and timberlake said “on one hand all our liberal friends will hate us, on the other, if you do this , all the American people we don’t like, and that don’t like us will watch our new movie… Cha ching !!! Lol but really who cares . She’s a fine piece of @ss and every marine will enjoy seeing her in a skimpy dress . So it’s a bonus for everyone

  9. @1st CivDiv – If you watch the video of her acceptance, she is not saying it to Timberlake. She looks right into the camera and says, “I’ll do it for you” while pointing, inferring that she is doing it for the Marine, not Timberlake.

  11. I personally just wanted to say what courage it took not just protecting our freedom but asking a beautiful women out to a beautiful ball congrat’s and thank you mila for accepting to a wonderful man who helps keep us safe like my own son who is in the army with the ariborne unit!!!!

  13. I think it is awesome…these guys do a lot to keep our country safe and they deserve something special in return. They are not in the military for the glory of it, they are proud to serve our country. They have more “balls” so to say than a vast majority of the civilians in this because they actually stand up for you and YOUR freedom and what they believe in, so I would be a little more respectful!

    I’m jealous, I’ve been a fan of Mila since she was on “That 70’s Show”. She’s a beautiful woman. Oohrah Sgt. Moore, Semper Fi & Semper Paratus

    @Marty, I agree with your comment;

    “1stCivDiv. You’re just jealous because she chose to go out with a REAL man, a Marine Sgt, and not a rear-echelon MF like your pussy self!” OOHRAH Marty!

  15. i think its great made his day he better come home safely so he can make this date and she is a true patriot for accepting his invite

  17. @1stCivDiv;

    Way to represent the grunts. Quit being a whiny little b@*ch. I mean seriously, who freakin cares about who does what in the Corps, the fact is, he got Mila Kunis to accept and that’s more than any of us ever accomplished. Mad points on that one, hell I like everyone else wish I had thought of it. And its Mila Kunis, not Paris Hilton, so way to be classy and even say something like that about her. You’re pathetic and an embarrassment. Go be miserable somewhere else cause no one cares.

  21. Marine Sgt. Ray Lewis asks Betty White to the Marine Corps Ball. This is the third time a Marine has asked an actress to their yearly tradition called the Marine Corps Ball. The first was Sgt. Moore. the other was Corporal Kelsey De Santis. Lewis is an Afghanistan and Iraq veteran, a journalist and a Hip Hop artist (RSonic).
