Betty White gets Marine Corps Ball invite

betty-white-gi.jpgFirst it was Mila Kunis. Then Justin Timberlake. Both received invitations to, and will indeed attend, the Marine Corps Ball. The trend started last week when a Marine posted a video invitation to Kunis on YouTube. Another, asking her "Friends with Benefits" co-star Timberlake to attend, soon followed.

Now Sgt. Ray Lewis has uploaded his dating request, too. Lewis first shows off his physical prowess -- doing a series of pull-ups, crunches and a sprint -- before asking 89-year-old actress (and recent it-girl) Betty White to be his date for the November event.

"I think I could make her laugh," says Murphy in the video. "I think she could make me laugh. I think we could laugh together."

White, unfortunately, won't be able to make it.

"I am deeply flattered and truly appreciate the invitation, as everyone knows I love a man in uniform," says White in a statement. "But unfortunately I cannot accept, as I will be taping an episode of Hot In Cleveland. Love, Betty White."

Shucks.



If you were able to invite a celeb to the ball -- or any old event -- who would it be?
