The parents of the marine who successfully asked A-list beauty Mila Kunis to the Marine Corps Ball said they’re very proud of their serviceman son, and happy he gets to have a moment in the sun.
As we previously reported, Sgt. Scott Moore, a marine currently stationed in Afghanistan, posted a 19-second video to YouTube in which he asked Kunis to accompany him to the Marine Corps Ball in Greenville, North Carolina this November.
Kunis, 27, told Fox News that her Friends With Benefits co-star, Justin Timberlake, coaxed her into accepting, telling her, “You need to do it for your country,” at which point Kunis said, “I’ll do it!”
The couple thanked both Kunis and Timberlake for “supporting the troops in this way … it means a lot to us.”
Diane said the family’s phone “has not stopped ringing, and from the talk of things, he’s the talk of town.”
Russell said of his son: “I love him very much, and am appreciative of what he’s become and what he stands for.”
Friends With Benefits hits theaters on Friday, July 22.
