HOLLYWOOD ACTRESS Mila Kunis has followed through on her unexpected acceptance of a US marine’s invitation to accompany him to his Marine Corps Ball in North Carolina.

Marine Sgt Scott Moore recorded his invitation to Kunis in Afghanistan and uploaded the video to YouTube. The invite was later described to Kunis during an interview with her Friends With Benefits co-star Justin Timberlake.

Timberlake quickly pledged her attendance on her behalf, saying “I’m going to work on this” before Kunis committed to the event:

He attended the event last week with Virginia-based marine Cpl Kelsey De Santis.

She later told reporters that she was honoured the singer and actor had accepted her invitation, while Timberlake said it was “one of the most moving evenings I’ve ever had”.
