This is the story that keeps on giving... sorta. First a Marine asked via YouTube for Mila Kunis to be his date at the Marine Corps Ball in November. With the encouragement from Justin Timberlake, Mila said "yes," before we found out that her shooting schedule wouldn't allow for her to attend. She did say that she would still go on a date with said Marine.
Not long after a female Marine then asked Justin Timberlake to be her date for the ball.
Now Sgt. Dustin L. Williams wanted Scarlett Johansson to be his date, and unfortunately she had to turn him down releasing a statement on the matter that read:
I feel incredibly honored to have been invited to the Marine Corps Ball by Sgt. Dustin L. Williams. Not only does Sgt. Williams deserve recognition for his bravery, selflessness and dedication to the United States and its people, but he also displays a cheeky talent for film making.Sgt. Williams, unfortunately due to prior commitments I will not be able to attend the Ball with you this year but I am sending you a case of Moet and Chandon with gratitude. In my absence, I raise a glass to you and all the men and women of the U.S. Marine Corps, past and present, in thanks for your continued commitment to preserving the safety of our nation. --
Other notable famous faces asked to the ball include Miley Cyrus, Betty White, and Terminator star Linda Hamilton.
If you were a Marine which celeb would you ask to be your date?
