Justin Timberlake Pressured Mila Kunis Into Accepting Sgt. Moore's Marine Corps Ball Invite!

Justin and Mila are definitely a patriotic duo, both attending Marine Corps Balls thanks to select soldiers’ YouTube invites. But on ‘The Today Show,’ Justin admits that he pushed Mila to go.

Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis bleed red, white and blue, both taking time out of their crazy Hollywood schedules to go to the military events of the season: two separate Marine Corps Balls in November. It’s no question they have huge hearts and support the troops, but Mila wasn’t totally persuaded right away.

On The Today Show on Jul. 18, Mila describes her invitation via video and her reaction, then Justin interrupts, saying, “And then I pressured her to do it.” Mila even backs this up with a laugh: “Sergeant can thank Justin for me being there.”

She talks about the same subject on Live with Regis & Kelly, reaffirming Justin’s enthusiasm and persuasion. But Mila has definitely warmed up to the idea. “Why not? I’ve never been asked out on a date in my life.” Who could deny Sgt. Moore’s adorable invite that ended short and sweet: “Take a second, think about it, get back to me.” Our hearts are still melting.

Whew! Guess it doesn’t matter why she goes or how she gets there, at least she’s going! She’s going to make one soldier a pretty happy guy.

And on a side note, it’s worth recapping their sarcastic joke on The Today Show about Marine ‘balls’ – so mature you two! With a smirk, Justin tells viewers, “We want to pay honor to our country and embrace their balls.”
