Just days after his “Friends With Benefits” co-star Mila Kunis accepted a YouTube invitation to the Marine Corps Ball, Justin Timberlake received and accepted his own invite to the very same event.
Marine Corp. Kelsey De Santis was so inspired by Sgt. Scott Moore and his bold request of Kunis, that she made her own YouTube video asking Timberlake to go with her to the Nov. 18 dance in Washington DC.
Timberlake made the announcement that he would be accepting De Santis’ gracious invitation during a press event with Kunis regarding the premiere of their film together.
I tell you what, I accept,” he said.
Timberlake also joked:
I don’t get asked out… ever… so I was very flattered by that. And I hear that she’s like trained in martial arts, so I’m hoping we can tussle…”
He then added:
If my schedule works out to do it, I’d love to do it… It’s an honor.”
