Scarlett Johansson rejects Marine Corps Ball invite, sends booze

Unlike Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake, sexpot actress Scarlett Johansson declined an invitation to the Marine Corps Ball.

Johansson, who was asked to the major event by Sgt. Dustin L. Williams, wrote in a statement to Zap2it that she was moved by the military man’s gesture but unable to accept due to some other plans she’d made. (Linda Hamilton happy to take Betty White’s place at Marine Corps Ball)

“I feel incredibly honored to have been invited to the Marine Corps Ball by Sgt. Dustin L. Williams,” the actress wrote. “Not only does Sgt. Williams deserve recognition for his bravery, selflessness and dedication to the United States and its people, but he also displays a cheeky talent for film making. Sgt. Williams, unfortunately due to prior commitments I will not be able to attend the Ball with you this year.”

The 26-year-old “He’s Just Not That into You” star did, however, offer some drinks.

“I am sending you a case of Moet and Chandon with gratitude,” Johansson continued. “In my absence, I raise a glass to you and all the men and women of the U.S. Marine Corps, past and present, in thanks for your continued commitment to preserving the safety of our nation.”

Johansson joins “Friends with Benefits” cast members Kunis and Timberlake and comedienne Betty White in being invited to one of the Marine Corps Balls. Like Johansson, the 89-year-old “Golden Girls” small-screen legend said no to the invite. Last week, “Terminator” star Linda Hamilton begged Sgt. Ray Lewis to take her to the ball in White’s place.

    what else would you expect from a Hollyweird Obamabot? It’s pretty clear this J.A.P hates our armed forces.

    The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Admiral Mullen, can’t even give the troops an honest answer about their paychecks while pretending that he has their welfare in mind while visiting them in Afghanistan on Saturday. Mullen couldn’t even be bothered to answer their questions concerning paychecks in the event of a default, and Mullen said, “that is something for the “U S GOVERNMENT to figure out.” The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff was incapable of anwering the Marines honestly. He’s more concerned with getting the Gays in the military to assure that sodomity is available to all those who volunteer. The military credit unions say they will advance pay if the government defaults. Wake up Credit Unions! The military credit unions are owned by the depositors who includes the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mullen. With Mullen’s promoting acceptance of homosexuality in the armed forces, will the Marine Corp Ball enforce the balance of homosexuals attending the event? DADT!

    Gee, how come a Marine doesn’t ask Jane Fonda? I’m sure she’d be welcomed at the Ball.

    This crap has gotten out of hand.

    So now, any marine can make a youtube video asking the hottest actress in Hollywood to attend the ball with him and the onus is on the Hollywood babe to come up with an excuse or else be seen as a bad sport or unamerican.

    I have known a lot of marines as I grew up next the El Toro Marine Base (now closed) and I can tell you that, like the rest of the population, about 50% of marines are assholes too.

    Instead of sending champaign or coming up with an excuse, I wish the Hollywood hottie would do the right thing and respond with: “uh, I dont know you, I only go out with people I have met before and, frankly, I find your invitation to be reaching, self-important and wierd. Thanks for protecting our shores. Now, piss off”.

    That would end this tiring bullcrap news item.

    Um, I think I will drop out of college and join the Marines. I want a date with that hot chick in the new X-men movie, you know, the babe that turns gold when she wants and she is a bad mutant. Yeah, I want a date with her…think I will join the marines.

    How stupid.

      Maybe you should drop out of that Liberal school and learn something in the Marines. But then I doubt you’d qualify.

          Sounds like you’ve been drinking more just one there although one would probably be all that is needed for you to post your drivel.
