Browsing: Mila Kunis

It’s Tuesday, so we’re opening the “Terminal Lance” vault once again to share another from the dozens of strips creator Max Uriarte has inked exclusively for readers of Marine Corps Times. Up this week: “Expectations,” first published in the issue dated Oct. 17, 2011. With Birthday Ball season nearly upon us, this seemed like a fitting choice. Plus, it’s pretty damn funny. And, too, you’ll recall the frenzy last year when, one by one, Marines took to YouTube to invite celebrities as their Birthday Ball dates. Mila Kunis. Justin Timberlake. Et cetera. We can’t help but wonder whether a similar…

Marine Corps Times can be many things to many people. News source? I hope so. Advocate? Sure, sometimes. Antagonist? At times, guilty as charged. I don’t think we’ve ever been credited with being a matchmaker before — until now. Sgt. Scott Moore, the Marine who will be taking actress Mila Kunis to his unit’s Marine Corps Birthday Ball, just launched a Twitter account. Not long after I found it today, he posted this message: [blackbirdpie url=”https://twitter.com/#!/theScottMoore/status/136892377116839936″] I won’t lie, that seriously made my day. Perhaps I should explain the back story. Moore posted his now infamous video asking Kunis for…

Last week, it became entirely predictable that scores of Marines would take to the Internet this year to ask their favorite celebrity the Marine Corps Birthday Ball. After all, it famously worked for Sgt. Scott Moore, who will be taking one Mila Kunis to the ball for 3rd Battalion, 2nd Marines, out of Camp Lejeune, N.C. It later worked for Cpl. Kelsey De Santis, who leveraged Kunis’ invitation to convince her “Friend with Benefits” co-star, Justin Timberlake, to attend her ball this fall in Washington, D.C. The successful invites first gave rise to Sgt. Ray Lewis — perhaps jokingly –…

In the never-ending saga of Marines inviting celebrities to the Marine Corps Birthday Ball, a new one has emerged: Sgt. Ray Lewis has asked former Golden Girl Betty White, 89, to attend with him. At least I think he’s serious. It’s hard to tell in this two-minute video: In other news, not only has Justin Timberlake accepted Cpl. Kelsey De Santis’ invitation to another ball, he quipped this morning on the “Today Show” that he and “Friends with Benefits” co-star Mila Kunis “want to pay honor to our country and embrace their balls.” While it lasts, here’s a clip of…

If you’re exhausted with all the coverage raising questions about whether actress Mila Kunis will attend the Marine Corps Birthday Ball, you’re not the only one. As the LA Times reports, a reporter brought it up during a promotional event for her new movie, in light of the media sensation caused by Sgt. Scott Moore’s invitation and her subsequent acceptance. She looked irked to be hearing about it yet again, and quickly squashed the rumors. “Never did I say that I was not going,” she said. She continued: “I accepted an invitation and I’m staying true to my word… I…

Another blog entry on Sgt. Scott Moore and Mila Kunis? Oh, why not. I give in. The Marine Corps just released a profile on the Marine who caused an online sensation by asking Kunis, the 27-year-old star of “Black Swan” and other movies, to attend his unit’s Marine Corps Birthday Ball with him. Without a doubt, it’s an effort by the service’s public affairs arm to show some of the work its Marines do in Afghanistan. Of course, we’ve now entered the will-she-or-won’t-she stage, but that’s another story entirely. The Corps release profiles like this all the time on the…

My head is beginning to hurt. Multiple reports now suggest that Mila Kunis, star of “Black Swan” and other films, may not be going to the Marine Corps Birthday Ball with deployed Sgt. Scott Moore, after all. As I assume even the Taliban knows at this point, he asked her to the Nov. 18 ball for 3rd Battalion, 2nd Marines, in a YouTube video made in Afghanistan. It went nuclear Friday, and Kunis, 27, accepted after being put on the spot in an interview over the weekend, melting hearts everywhere. E! Entertainment suggests the reports of her backing out aren’t…

It was a matter of time: Sgt. Scott Moore is responding to the online sensation created by actress Mila Kunis accepting his YouTube invitation from Afghanistan to attend his unit’s Marine Corps Birthday Ball. Marine officials said Moore, of 3rd Battalion, 2nd Marines, was unavailable due to operational commitments. However, the public affairs staff at Camp Leatherneck, Afghanistan, released a statement and lengthy question-and-answer session apparently adopted from questions he received from stateside reporters, including me. On Saturday, Kunis, 27, the star of “Black Swan” and other films, accepted Moore’s invitation after she was questioned by a Fox reporter. His…

God bless the Internet. As you may recall, last week Battle Rattle featured a video in which Sgt. Scott Moore asked actress Mila Kunis to his unit’s Marine Corps ball. Deployed to Musa Qala, Afghanistan, with 3rd Battalion, 2nd Marines, he’d set up a page on YouTube a few weeks before, but it hadn’t blown up online the way he probably was hoping. The blog entry was an immediate hit, and the video exploded online afterward. It had just 1,000 views when I posted it here Thursday night, but as I write this, it now has more than 188,000. Moreover,…
