One in a series where we take a look at the unusual, the absurd and certainly the unexpected.
Perhaps you've heard by now that actress Mila Kunis has accepted an invitation to the Marine Corps ball in November. The video invite sent by Sgt. Scott Moore can be seen here. Pretty cool, huh? And her reaction to the reaction of her accepting the invite (first link) was pretty darn cool as well.
OK, let's call it a wrap shall we and let this golden and heart-warming Hollywood moment live on in our memories unsullied for eternity.
What's that? You say you're intrigued by this lovely young lass and would like to know more about her? C'mon, do you really want to take that chance? Can we just leave well enough alone?
GQ: Your new movie is called Friends with Benefits. Ever been in one of those relationships?
Mila Kunis: Oy. I haven’t, but I can give you my stance on it: It’s like communism—good in theory, in execution it fails. Friends of mine have done it, and it never ends well. Why do people put themselves through that torture?
Now regardless of whether you actually agree with her judgement of either FWBs or communism, ponder the fact that this 28 yr. old actress took multiple unrelated concepts and strung them together in a single coherent thought, completely unrehearsed.
Kunis as a young girl and her parents emigrated here from the Soviet Union back in 1991 escaping what they saw as persecution against Jews. Knowing that, it's easier to see how she just might have a different perspective on things than the average American-born twenty-something.
Having said that, please count BwD as official fan-boys of Ms. Kunis.
