Considering the track record of Scarlett Johansson in all things which most of us would consider nice, it is no surprise she turned down an invitation to the Marine Corps Ball. Yes, Betty White also said no and there have been others too, but if anyone needed to show she is not some kind of shrew when it comes to nice, it is Scarlett. She has the reputation of not being friendly to her fans, of stiffing people who bought charity things involving her, and she still has not gone to Haiti like she said she would. This would have been a great thing for her to do. Instead though she sent a note and a case of champagne which she identified by name and which is probably now headed to the Ball gratis or at least they will reimburse her with a matching amount. Seriously? Who in the f**k sells an ad while they are rejecting a date? Scarlett, that is who. Always looking out for herself. Oh, and cheeky? Seriously?
I feel incredibly honored to have been invited to the Marine Corps Ball by Sgt. Dustin L. Williams. 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.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. -- Scarlett
