Betty White

The Marine Corps Ball just got a little less hot.

While Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake are planning to attend a gala—which marks the Corps' 236th birthday—on the arms of active soldiers who invited them via YouTube, guess who turned out to be the one who got away?

Betty White, whose late husband was an Army man, is already booked that night!

"I am deeply flattered and truly appreciate the invitation," the 89-year-old said in a statement Monday. "As everyone knows, I love a man in uniform...But unfortunately I cannot accept, as I will be taping an episode of Hot in Cleveland."

"Love, Betty White," she concluded.

At least the charming Sgt. Ray Lewis—"like the football player," he said—shouldn't have any trouble finding another date, even though he really laid out a case for why White should go with him (aside from the pushups and other feats of strength he performed in his video).

"She's funny, she's sweet," he began, the video cutting to him in his dress uniform, holding a rose. "She's an all-around perfect woman...I think we could laugh together."

Well, perhaps Mila can save him a dance.
