How many celebrities can get invited to a Marine Corps Ball? Evidently no one wants to bring just a regular date to this shindig! The latest invite to these star studded events goes to none other than Betty White. Sgt. Ray Lewis has asked America’s oldest sweetheart to be his date to the Marine Corps Ball in a YouTube video because apparently that’s the new cool thing to do these days. Lewis flatters the veteran actress stating, “She’s funny, she’s sweet, she’s mature. She’s the all-around perfect woman…I really think we’d have a good time. I’m fun, you know…I think I can make her laugh. I think she can make me laugh. I think we can laugh together. … So, call me!”
White hasn’t responded yet to the request, but Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake confirmed on NBC’s Today Show that they are definitely attending the ball. The Friends With Benefits co-stars were invited by Scott Moore and Kelsey De Santis. The pair clarified that though that there is more than one Marine Corps Ball, and that they’re not attending the same one. Timberlake claims they are going to the events because, “We want to pay honor to our country and embrace their balls.” Perhaps one of them will bump into Betty on the dance floor. We’ll have to wait and see what her answer will be!
