Mila got Ashton to sell back ticket for next Virgin Galactic flight

Ashton Kutcher bought a ticket for next Virgin Galactic flight but wife Mila Kunis made him return it saying it was ‘not a smart family decision’ as they have kids

Ashton Kutcher has revealed that he bought a ticket for the next Virgin Galactic flight into space – only to then sell it back.

The 43-year-old shared his wife Mila Kunis persuaded him not to go on account of their children Wyatt, six, and Dimitri, four. 

‘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,’ the Punk’d star shared in an interview with Cheddar News.

‘So I ended up selling my ticket back to Virgin Galactic and I was supposed to be on the next flight but I will not be on the next flight,’ he said.

‘But at some point I’m going to space!’ insisted Ashton, who met Mila while they acted together on That ’70s Show and has been married to her since 2015.

Ashton’s revelation comes just days after Virgin Galactic founder Richard Branson boarded the company’s first flight into space.

Sir Richard and five of his employees boarded a space plane called the VSS Unity and the flight lasted about an hour before touching safely back down to Earth.

The charismatic billionaire traveled up 280,000 feet from the ground and broke free of the planet’s gravitational pull despite remaining in its orbit. 

He bumped up his flight to earlier than the initial scheduled date in order to defeat Amazon tycoon Jeff Bezos in their space race.

Meanwhile Mila has been up in Toronto filming an upcoming Netflix movie adaptation of Jessica Knoll’s 2015 novel Luckiest Girl In the World. 

‘Our whole family is already co-dependent, so this pandemic just feeds into our entire co-dependency,’ she told Entertainment Tonight this January.

‘And my husband and I were super co-dependent for like eight years and in this pandemic our kids are like: “Where are you going?” And I was like: “The bathroom.” We haven’t left each other. We’re in the house.’
