How to score a date with Mila Kunis

You sure you won't mind if Mila goes on this date, Justin? You seem to realllly like her.

Mila Kunis doesn’t speak very highly of herself when it comes to her comic chops, despite making a name for herself on “That 70s Show.” “It’s hard to be funny in general. I think I have a good sense of humor, but I’m not, like, a joke-teller,” she tells GQ. “Believe me, I have no idea why anyone hires me.” The “Friends with Benefits” star also admits that she’s currently single, thanks in large part to her work schedule. “I wouldn’t dare wish myself upon anybody at this point in my life! My shooting schedule is crazy. I’m a nomad till January,” she says.

However, the star might not be single for long. It turns out she said yes to the Marine who asked her to be his date to the Marine Corps Ball in November. Sgt. Scott Moore of the 3rd Battalion made his plea on for all to see YouTube:

Kunis was tipped off to the clip over the weekend by “Friends With Benefits” co-star Justin Timberlake while doing press for their new romantic comedy.

“Have you seen this? Have you heard about this? You need to do it for your country,” Timberlake asked Kunis about the clip. “I’m going to work on this, man. This needs to go down,” he swore.

Kunis then checked in with her publicist and agreed. “I’ll go. I’ll do it for you,” she said to Timberlake, then asked if Timberlake would also like to go. (Ed note: not a bad threesome, Kunis!) “They don’t want me! They want you,” Timberlake responded. “You need to do it for your country.” Then Kunis confirmed: “I’ll do it.”

Is serving your country the only way to get a date with Mila Kunis? Maybe! But if that’s too dangerous for you, we’ve looked to her filmography for safer ideas:

•Be her friend. Convince her that you two should start hooking up. Wait for her to grow emotionally attached. (A caveat: This one requires you to resemble Justin Timberlake.)

•Be a high-strung ballerina that Mila thinks she could loosen up. Alternately, be a male model at a club.

•Be a pitiful sad sack who visits Mila’s workplace on vacation. Mope about your ex. Take Mila out, and then mope some more.

•Be a professor of criminology who realizes that Mila is actually a sociopath. (A caveat: This one requires you to be murdered, so maybe it’s not that much safer.)

•Be a family dog.
