Scarlett recently joined the growing pool of A-list celebrities—including as Justin Timberlake, Mila Kunis, and Miley Cyrus—who were asked out by members of the military to the Marine Corps Ball. Scarlett was invited by Sgt. Dustin L. Williams via YouTube, much like all the other celebs. However, the recently divorced actress had to respectfully decline.

Zap2it obtained Scarlett’s polite refusal, which read:

“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.”

When asked what he would do if Scarlett turned him down, Sgt. Williams said:

“If I was told she could not attend, I would understand. I would not believe the invitation would be denied without good cause. With her current career I would imagine Scarlett Johansson is a busy woman.”

Seems like a sweet guy… Too bad she can’t go with him! After her divorce from Ryan Reynolds and her sudden breakup with Sean Penn, ScarJo could definitely use the company of a nice, respectful man.

Don’t you think?
