Scarlett Johansson is really sorry. She'd love to attend the Marine Corps Ball with Sergeant Dustin L. Williams, but the actress has been forced to turn down the officer's invitation this week.
"I feel incredibly honored to have been invited to the Marine Corps Ball by Sgt. Dustin L. Williams," Johansson said in a statement. "Not only does Sgt. Williams deserve recognition for his bravery, selflessness and dedication to the United States and its people, but he also displays a cheeky talent for film making."
Adds the beauty:
"Sgt. Williams, unfortunately due to prior commitments I will not be able to attend the Ball with you this year but I am sending you a case of Moet and Chandon with gratitude. In my absence, I raise a glass to you and all the men and women of the U.S. Marine Corps, past and present, in thanks for your continued commitment to preserving the safety of our nation."
Tough break, Dustin. But allow us to recommend Olivia Wilde. She's looking for a man who doesn't text.
