Say Yes

Lesbian Student Asks Mila Kunis to be her Date for College Cotillion

Lesbian student Kirsten Bledsoe wants Mila Kunis to be her date for her school’s dance. By Anna Klassen.

Apparently, Mila Kunis says yes to everything.

College senior Kirsten Bledsoe is nearing the end of her final year at Hollins University in Virginia, and to end her year with a bang, she decided to go out on a limb (in a very public way) and invite her celebrity crush, Mila Kunis, to her last school dance. And with a six-pack of Blue Moon to sweeten the deal (Mila’s favorite), how could a girl say no?

Prompted by the recent viral video of BBC Radio reporter Chris Stark’s unconventional interview with Kunis last week, in which Kunis joked that she never turns down a date, Bledsoe figured she had nothing to lose. “Why not make a video asking her to my last school dance?” she told The Daily Beast, mentioning that she “was appalled” that Stark had never heard of Blue Moon beer.

Blesdoe has had a crush on Kunis “since publicity began for Black Swan in 2010.” She is also a fan of Kunis's voice work on Family Guy, but appreciates Kunis as Lily in Black Swan because “people expect her to do comedies, but Lily is dark, mysterious and dramatic.”

With help from fellow student and film major Ashton Witt, the pair set out to make a video that just might catch Kunis’s attention. “I don't know if Mila will say yes if the video reaches her,” Blesdoe said. “I do think that if she chooses to acknowledge it she will be kind and funny if not willing to go. The biggest conflict, I think, would be her busy schedule."

But if by miracle Kunis did say yes, what would their perfect evening look like? “First of all, I would not pass out upon meeting her,” Blesdoe joked. “I would really like to just have a semi-casual evening hanging out with her. To get a seat at a table, have a couple drinks, and speak with her and enjoy her company.”

But even if Kunis can’t attend, Blesdoe hopes the video will serve a greater purpose.

“I am gay,” Blesdoe clarified. “Any attention the video gets is a great way to highlight LGBTQ awareness in a rural Southern state.”

And this student and social activist has only nice things to say about her idol: “She is very grounded, and she is always herself. She is private, but she is real. She has a great sense of humor, and, you know, she isn't bad looking either.”

C’mon Mila, just say yes already!
