Ashton Kutcher had a ticket onboard Virgin Galactic's space ship, but the actor revealed he will not be making the trip after all. In an interview with Cheddar this week, Kutcher said his wife, Mila Kunis, talked him out of it. 

The actors, who starred alongside each other on "That 70's Show," have two children – Wyatt, 6, and Dimitri, 4. But Kutcher bought his ticket before he and Kunis even married in 2015. In 2012, the actor became the 500th customer to sign up for the Virgin Galactic space flight. Kutcher told Cheddar Wednesday that he sold his ticket back to the company. 

Ashton Kutcher has been waiting to go to space for quite some time. Back in 2015, the actor bought his ticket for around $200k becoming just the 500th customer for Virgin Galactic's space flight venture. A bunch of celebs also got on board to fly in Richard Brandon's space ship including Leo, Biebs, Rihanna, Brad Pitt, etc. Last week Branson launched himself up there, a goal he's been chasing for over a decade now. Pretty cool!

Well, just as Kutcher was scheduled to board the very next flight up there, he has reportedly been talked out of it from his wife Mila Kunis and sold his ticket back to the company. They're calling it a smart family decision. 


Family? Come on, we're talking outer space!!! Kutcher bought this ticket back in 2015 and has been waiting ever since for this very moment. Imagine waiting that long to do anything and to come THAT close only to give it all up. It's like in the movie The Terminal where Tom Hanks' character lives in JFK for months. He waits and waits and waits at Gate 67 for his war at home to end. Finally 9 months later the war ends, but instead of venturing to NYC he decides to head home. If not for the janitor stopping the flight, he would have went home instead of fulfilling his destiny. Unacceptable. 

Now I will say, if Mila Kunis tells me to do something, I'm probably going to listen. 

Still seems like Kutcher is going to get up there one way or the other. 

While Kutcher might have given up his Virgin Galactic ticket, space travel may be in the 43-year-old's future. "I will not be on the next flight, but at some point, I'm going to space," Kutcher told Cheddar.

Still, space over family every single time.
