Mila Kunis and Marine Sgt. Scott MooreOn Friday night, actress Mila Kunis fulfilled her promise to Marine Sgt. Scott Moore, an Afghanistan vet, when she attended the annual Marine Corps Ball in Greenville, North Carolina. It's wonderful to see that Ms. Kunis, after a little waffling, prioritized this event and accepted the Sergeant's heartfelt YouTube invitation. It's such a beautiful and respectful way to celebrate our servicemen and women. Mila Kunis may be one of Hollywood's hottest leading ladies right now, but on Friday night, she was just another loyal American patriot.
Love the photo of Mila Kunis with her hand drapped across her chest. Sure, she's stunning in black at the Ball, but the look on her face is one of sheer pride. Exactly how I feel whenever I do the Pledge of Allegiance or sing along with the Star Spangled Banner.
Last weekend we also saw Kunis's Friends With Benefits costar Justin Timberlake attend a Marine Corps Ball with Corporal Kelsey De Santis and, afterward, bare his proud and patriotic heart. It feels good, don't it? What a great way for celebrities to shed their star status for awhile and simply stand among us as proud Americans. I like it.
