(CBS) Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis have both accepted invitations to attend the Marine Corps Ball, and the "Friends with Benefits" costars sent messages to their soon-to-be dates straight from the red carpet.

At the film's premiere, "Extra" got the actors to speak on camera to Cpl. Kelsey De Santis and Sgt. Scott Moore, who asked out Timberlake and Kunis, respectively, via YouTube videos.

Timberlake said, "Corporal, it's an honor. You frighten me a little bit, but I'm excited." The singer asked, "I can't wait. What color corsage would you like?"

"Hello, Sergeant. I'm very excited," Kunis said. "I hope you're not disappointed."

On the "Today" show earlier this week, the co-stars clarified that there is more that one Marine Corps ball and they will be attending separate events. Kunis was invited to a ball in North Carolina on Nov. 18 while Timberlake was invited to one in Washington, D.C., on Nov. 12.

"It's two separate balls ... there are multiple balls," Kunis said. "Marines have a lot of balls."

"Marines got balls," Timberlake added. "We want to pay honor to our county and embrace their balls."

One star who didn't accept a Marine Corps Ball invitation was Betty White. Sgt. Ray Lewis made a YouTube video asking the octogenarian to be his date, but she declined, citing scheduling conflicts.

"I am deeply flattered and truly appreciate the invitation, as everyone knows I love a man in uniform," White said in a statement to "Access Hollywood." "But unfortunately I cannot accept, as I will be taping an episode of 'Hot In Cleveland.'"
