Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake are going. And now, Betty White's been invited, too.

Sgt. Ray Lewis has asked White to be his date to the Marine Corps Ball in a YouTube video, flattering the 89-year-old actress plenty in the process.

"She's funny, she's sweet, she's mature. She's the all-around perfect woman," he says. "I really think we'd have a good time. I'm fun, you know. … I think I can make her laugh. I think she can make me laugh. I think we can laugh together. … So, call me!"





To White's dismay, work got in the way.

"I am deeply flattered and truly appreciate the invitation," White said in a statement to Access Hollywood. "As everyone knows I love a man in uniform, but unfortunately I cannot accept, as I will be taping an episode of Hot In Cleveland.'"

But Kunis, 27, and Timberlake, 30, confirmed Monday on NBC's Today show, while promoting their movie Friends with Benefits, that they are attending – having been invited by Scott Moore and Kelsey De Santis, respectively.

But they clarified that there is more than one Marine Corps Ball, and that they're not attending the same one.
