Scarlett Johansson Turns Down Marine For Latest Ball Invitation

Inviting celebrities to the Marine Corps Ball: The fad continues, and this time with Scarlett Johansson!

According to Zap2it, Sgt. Dustin L. Williams has extended an invitation to Ms. Johansson via the one and only YouTube.

While Scarlett would love to go, she released a statement saying that she would not be able to make it…

“I feel incredibly honored to have been invited to the Marine Corps Ball by Sgt. Dustin L. Williams. 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 but I am sending you a case of Moet and Chandon with gratitude. 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. –  Scarlett”

Even though Williams was turned down, don’t feel too bad.  The levelheaded Marine said of the possibility,

“If I was told she could not attend, I would understand. I would not believe the invitation would be denied without good cause. With her current career I would imagine Scarlett Johansson is a busy woman.”

Williams’ invite is only the first in a long line, which includes Justin Timberlake, Mila Kunis, Betty White, and Miley Cyrus.
