Following in the footsteps of his “Friends with Benefits” co-star Mila Kunis, Justin Timberlake has accepted his own invitation to the upcoming Marine Corps Ball in Greenville, North Carolina.

“I’ll tell you what, I accept,” Timberlake said a press junket for his new movie in Cancun, Mexico. “But not because she shouted out one of my songs, which I do love, and not because she had all those beefcake military guys behind her to intimidate me.”

So why did he accept the invite? “I don’t get asked out. Ever. So I was very flattered by that,” he said jokingly. “If my schedule works out to do it, I’d love to do it. It’s an honor,” he continued.

When Mila Kunis accepted her invitation to the ball (with some encouragement from Justin), people questioned if she would be able to make the date, since she will be filming a movie at the time. But despite all of that, Kunis confirmed that she will be attending the November 18th ball with Sgt. Scott Moore.

“Never did I say that I was not going,” Kunis told reporters at the ‘Friends with Benefits’ press junket.

Looks like JT and MK are going on a double date!
