If you saw the movie “Friends With Benefits”, you know that Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake (or their characters, we should say) were pretty tight. But hey, Justin doesn’t have anything on us! We’re friends with Mila too! Just maybe without the benefits.
Imagine our surprise last Friday — Black Friday, one of the busiest days of the year at American Jewelry and Loan — when we heard gasps throughout the store. Mila Kunis, who is in town filming “Oz: The Great and Powerful”, along with James Franco, Rachel Weisz, Michelle Williams and Zach Braff, decided to spend her day off on another set – ours!
We’d heard through the grapevine that she was a fan of the show, but she definitely caught us all off guard (which you know is hard to do) when she walked through our front door. But the coolest part was that she really wanted to learn about our business! We gave her the grand tour and she spent some time behind the loan windows working with our staff. She definitely took some customers by surprise when they walked up to get their cash!
It was just a couple weeks ago, that Mila attended the Marine Corps Ball in Greenville, North Carolina with Sgt. Scott Moore, who asked her to be his date via YouTube. We thought that was the coolest thing ever. And now, we kind of know how he felt!
Mila, thanks for making our day. We’ve always said that you never know what’s in store when you come to American Jewelry and Loan and last Friday, Mila proved us right!
