Mila Kunis convinced Ashton Kutcher to sell his ticket to space

·1-min read

Ashton Kutcher is determined to one day make it to space, despite selling his ticket to the next Virgin Galactic launch at the urging of his wife, actress Mila Kunis.

Virgin Records mogul Richard Branson made history last Sunday by joining the first space mission to carry civilians, but Kutcher won't be joining him just yet.

The actor turned venture capitalist was one of the first celebrities to sign up for the out-of-this world adventure back in 2012, joining a list which also includes Leonardo DiCaprio and Lady Gaga. He has since given up his ticket – as his wife, actress Mila Kunis, convinced him it wasn't a wise idea for a father-of-two.

"When I got married and had kids, my wife basically encouraged that it was not a smart family decision to be heading into space when we have young children, so I ended up selling my ticket back to Virgin Galactic," the Jobs star told Cheddar News after the crucial Unity22 test, which was the first of a series of flights to see if space travel can be made commercially available.

"I was supposed to be on the next flight, but I will not be on the next flight."

Despite getting his Virgin Galactic refund following his 2015 marriage to Kunis, the actor is still hopeful he will eventually make his astronaut dreams come true.

"At some point, I will be going to space," he said.
