U.S. Marine Takes Justin Timberlake as Her Date to Military Ball

Actor Justin Timberlake earned himself heaps of good press Saturday night when he accompanied a fan to the annual Marine Corps Ball in Washington, D.C. Timberlake, 30, wrote on his website:

I felt so proud to be there. I felt like I was getting a chance to be among my heroes. It’s funny too because a lot of them are SO younger than me.

Corporal Kelsey DeSantis asked Timberlake for a date via a YouTube video. She was inspired by Sgt. Scott Moore, who scored a date with Timberlake’s Friends With Benefits co-star Mila Kunis with his own YouTube video. Timberlake encouraged Kunis to accept the invitation, and she’ll accompany Moore to the Marine Corps Ball in Greenville, N.C. on Nov. 18.
