Moore said he got the news from one of his friends back home and his initial reaction was "disbelief." Moore is from Grove City, Pa., and his unit is based in Camp Lejeune, N.C. He said he has also heard from Kunis' "people."
He expressed his gratitude toward Timberlake, whom he called his "wingman."
"It's nice to know he can get over the jealously to help a brother out," he said jokingly, before adding, "Justin Timberlake's encouragement definitely helped; I owe him one."
Moore said this year's ball will be special, not just because Kunis is his date, but also because its the 236th birthday of the Marine Corps and his unit will be home from Afghanistan. As for any special plans he has in store for Kunis, "I think I'll keep that a secret for now; we have to iron out the details."
But in terms of what she can expect, he quoted Eleanor Roosevelt: "The Marines I have seen around the world have the cleanest bodies, the filthiest minds, the highest morale, and the lowest morals of any group of animals I have ever seen. Thank God for the United States Marine Corps!"
