Scarlett Johansson is just the latest celebrity to be invited to a Marine Corps Ball.

But unfortunately for Sgt. Dustin L. Williams, the A-lister has a previous engagement.

In an exclusive statement to Zap2it, Johansson writes:

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
