Another celebrity attended a Marine Corps Ball over the weekend. Last week, Justin Timberlake took Cpl. Kelsey De Santis to her event (where according to reports they brought sexy back), and on Friday night, Sgt. Scott Moore escorted actress Mila Kunis to his gala in Greenville, N.C.

"It was a great time," the still-grinning Marine enthused to TODAY hosts on the Plaza Monday morning. "She was very cool, down-to-earth ... interested in learning all about what we do and our traditions and what the Marine Corps Ball is all about," he said.

Maybe there was a little less dance floor action than with Timberlake and De Santis, but Moore says he was happy having her meet his friends and fellow Marines, "and introducing her to the families so she could really see the sacrifice a lot of my guys made."

Moore's unit recently returned after being deployed in Afghanistan for seven months. They lost seven members during that tour of duty.

Moore asked Kunis out via YouTube video in July.

"Honestly, I just like the support," said Moore. "It's nice to know that the American people still love us and support us in what we're doing over there."
