Mila Kunis accepts sergeant's invitation to Marine Corps Ball

Mila Kunis has accepted an invitation from a Marine to attend the Marine Corps Ball

Mila Kunis may have won acclaim for "Black Swan," but it's the red, white and blue that's getting her high marks from the Ministry: The actress has accepted an invitation from Sgt. Scott Moore to attend the Marine Corps Ball this fall.

In a polite, to-the-point YouTube video that he uploaded in June from Afghanistan, Moore asked Kunis to be his date for the ball, scheduled for Nov. 18 in Greenville, N.C.

"Take a second, think about it, get back to me. All right, bye now," Moore said in the clip, which you can watch below.

Credit his Marine swagger, or perhaps a push from Kunis' "Friends With Benefits" costar Justin Timberlake -- Moore is getting his wish. While talking to Fox 411 over the weekend, Timberlake asked Kunis if she'd seen the Marine's plea, then pressed her to attend. "I'm going to work on this, man," he said before sending Moore a direct message. "This needs to go down."

"I'll go. I'll do it for you," she said. The Marine Corps Ball is a significant bash for the Semper Fi bunch. We can't wait to see Kunis on Moore's arm, dress blues and all.
