Mila Kunis is a woman of her word.
The actress shot down rumors on Thursday that she had backed out of attending the Marine Corps Ball with Sgt. Scott Moore in Greenville, N.C., on Nov. 18.
“Never did I say that I was not going,” Kunis told reporters at a Friends with Benefits media event. She went on to say the rumor was made up and “people believed it, unfortunately.”
Kunis accepted the invitation on Tuesday after Moore posted a YouTube video asking the actress to be his date as the result of a bet with a fellow Marine.
“I accepted an invitation and I’m staying true to my word,” she said. “I got permission to be released from work for the day, so I’m flying in and flying out.”
