Movie Star to attend Marine Corps Ball
« on: July 12, 2011, 02:15:24 PM »
Did anyone else see the story about the Marine stationed in Afghanistan who invited Mila Kunis to the Marine Corps Ball in N.C. by You Tube? Apparently, she said "Yes."

Just because you're disappointed in me doesn't mean I did anything wrong.

I gotta say that took guts. I love a guy who has the guts to just ask.

Way to go Mila! Do it for our country!

Sings: Yeeeeah, let's do it for our Country.
The red white and the blue.
It's Uncle Sam who's asking,
so your mother will approve.
Tomorrow I'll be fighting,
and I'll win this war for you.
Let's do it for our country,
our country wants us to

I think it's sweet.  I also love the fact Justin Timberlake help encourage her to accept.

That song popped into my head as soon as you said "Do it for our country."  ;D

I've always thought she seemed like she'd be a fun person. I think this is pretty cool.
The status is not quo!

Well of course it did. Because you and I share the same awesomeness...   I mean you DO have Dr Horrible in your profile pic afterall.  :P
And I agree. She seems like someone I'd want to hang out with.

I never really knew much about her before, but now I am going to go see her latest movie.  :)

I didn't like that part of it. It's a nice story but JT was saying he would make it happen and she had to do it and "he'd work on it because it needed to go down". Before she'd even said anything. No pressure or anything! He's not her pimp.

I do think it is a nice story but it would be a lot nicer without him trying to broker the deal.

I actually think that it was a rather funny situation. Sure, JT pushed her to do it, but it seems pretty clear that she would have done so anyway without his prompting :) .

 :(

It's being reported that Mila will be "too busy" to attend, but still wants to meet with Scott Moore.  I really hope this isn't true.

From what I read, she'll be far away in the middle of filming. I think the whole thing is silly. The marine has said that he was pushed into making the video because he lost a bet, Mila was CLEARLY pushed into doing it by JT "volunteering" her, and it just got out of hand. She should never have said she'd do it, but she probably felt pressured and put on the spot. JT should never have said he'd "make" her do it. I don't think refusing to honor a commitment that someone else made FOR you is wrong... she just should never have caved in the first place.

I think it's cute as a movie concept, but in real life it's not nice to put people on the spot like that.
If wisdom’s ways you wisely seek,
Five things observe with care,
To whom you speak,
Of whom you speak,
And how, and when, and where.

The marine and JT were both exceptionally rude.  Mila Kunis should not be pressured to go out and put herself into a situation where she is obviously uncomfortable.  No one is entitled to date a celebrity and it is extremely rude to further pressure or guilt trip her into agreeing.  She especially never should have been put on the spot.

JT and the marine need to take a break from high-fiving each other and consider that Mila Kunis is a real, living, breathing, thinking human being.

I'm sorry, but after having gotten the guilt trip every single time I turned a man down for a date, I want to beat JT upside the head with a clue by eight.  A girl should be able to feel comfortable turning a guy down for a date, and JT should not be sending the message that it's okay to pressure a woman into doing something she obviously doesn't want to do.

I don't see what's charming about it at all and I hate the idea that people seem to think she owes him this date.

I also dislike the fact that she's interrupted multiple times, some where it's pretty clear she's about to say things like "if I'm not busy" etc. Also she seems not too keen when she's told she's going alone.

All in all this really grates on me, especially as people are now talking bad of her because she might not do it after all. She doesn't owe him anything, she was put on the spot (which in and of itself is rude, IMO) and now she's stuck either going on a date with a completely stranger, which she was pretty much forced into, or to look like the big bad person who doesn't wanna "honour a service man" and whatever else people are saying.

I hate this and I feel bad for her.  :-\

I heard on the radio today that her people confirmed that she was going to go. They havent confirmed whether or not JT is going to go though.
