Mila and the Marine: A Love Story?

Earlier this week, Mila Kunis agreed on live television to take Sgt. Scott Moore, a marine, up on his request to bring her to his Marine Corps Ball in November. He posted a YouTube video asking her to come, and had his marine buddies pass it along far enough to reach her. Kunis was prompted to accept his invitation by her “Friends with Benefits” co-star Justin Timberlake who said, “Do it for your country.” No pressure or anything, right? She then said to Justin, “I’ll do it for you. Will you come?” Instead, he told her that she had to do it on her own and for her country, so she had to go without him.

Now I don’t know about you, but if I were that marine, first of all, I wouldn’t post such a douchey video where I never once take my sunglasses off. Second of all, I’d feel a little embarrassed that she’s asking Justin Timber-flake to go with her when I was the one who invited her in the first place. Regardless, it is a really cute idea, and I personally had both fingers crossed for him. But as heart-warming and kind as the story is, as of July 13th Mila was forced to formally decline the invitation due to too much traveling during November, despite originally saying yes.

She will be starring in two films around that time, and traveling out to Maryland for the ball, apparently, doesn’t seem like a necessary stop. At this point though, it’s complete bad publicity to back out of the deal. She said yes. Not only did she say yes, but she said yes to a marine who’s fighting in Afghanistan. It would be one thing to back out of a deal with a 17-year-old Burger King employee who needed a prom date, but this is a marine fighting for our country. The least she can do is try and reschedule her other commitments.
