Just call her the belle of the ball.

Mila Kunis made good on the promise she made last summer when she attended a Marine Corps Ball in Greenville, N.C., on Friday with Sgt. Scott Moore.

According to local news station WNCT, the actress arrived to the venue just before 2:30 p.m., where she was quickly whisked away from the media. The news station caught a shot of Kunis, 28, being escorted from the Pitt-Greenville Airport to the Greenville Convention Center.

The two were “enjoying the night,” Marine spokesperson Capt. Scott Sasser told Access Hollwood.

“She’s going to get a chance to learn about the Marine Corps, and we’re all going to have a great time celebrating the Marine Corps birthday,” Sasser said prior to the ball, which marked 236 years of military history.

Moore asked Kunis out via YouTube after making a bet with a fellow Marine when he was serving his second combat deployment in Musa Qala, Afghanistan.

“I always thought I had a chance, and sometimes, that’s all you need,” he said in July of popping the question to his famous date.

And Kunis wasn’t the only one adding a little star power to a Marine Corps Ball. A week prior, Friends with Benefits costar Justin Timberlake had “one of the most moving evenings” of his life at another Marine Corps Ball in Richmond, Va., with combat instructor Kelsey De Santis.

“What I didn’t know was how moved I would be by the whole experience,” said Timberlake, 30, who also received an invite this past summer right after Kunis. “I felt so proud to be there. I felt like I was getting a chance to be among my heroes.”
