Remember when Justin Timberlake agreed to go Marine Corps Ball with Corporal Kelsey De Santis who asked him out on YouTube? Well this young lady got her wish.
Over the weekend, JT put on his tux and joined De Santis to celebrate the 236th Marine Corps Birthday Ball in Richmond, Virginia.
Following the event, Timberlake took to his website to share his feelings on the occassion calling it “one of the most moving evenings I’ve ever had.”
The 30 year old star wrote: “I knew I would have an evening that I wouldn’t forget… Something I could tell my friends about. What I didn’t know was how moved I would be by the whole experience.”
JT expressed gratitude towards his date, whom he described as “humble and honest”, and seemed more concerned with his having fun than anything else.
Adding, “I have to tell you, it’s not every day that I meet a 23 year old girl and she’s more worried about if I’m having fun or if I’m comfortable! It hit me all of a sudden that these were the type of people that look after us and our freedom… Humble, concerned for others before themselves… This was the type of person our Marine Corps was building. I was really blown away.”
Timberlake closed the post by writing,:
“To all of you that serve every day for us…Ensuring our freedom, I say: My deepest gratitude to you. I’ve met so many of my heroes… From Michael Jordan to Michael Jackson. And, nothing makes me feel more honor and pride than when I get to meet one of you. Last night changed my life and I will never forget it. Thank you Corporal Kelsey DeSantis. Thank you for inviting me. And, thank you for being my hero.”
So now its time for Timberlake’s Friends with Benefits co-star Mila Kunis to head to the ball. Kunis was asked out on YouTube first, and her big night is Nov. 18 in Greenville, NC.
We can’t wait to hear all about it!
