Ashton Kutcher Reveals How Mila Kunis Convinced Him Not to Go to Space

Watch: Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher Hilariously Slam Split Rumors

Ashton Kutcher was all set to blast off into outer space, but his other half, Mila Kunis, convinced him to stay grounded.
The That's ‘70s show actor revealed in an interview with Cheddar News that although he already secured a golden ticket for a flight aboard the Virgin Galactic ship, his wife made him think twice about shooting beyond the stars.
"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," Ashton admitted in the July 14 clip. "So, I ended up selling my ticket back to Virgin Galactic. I was supposed to be on the next flight, but I will not be on the next flight."
The "next flight" follows billionaire Richard Branson's recent historic lift-off on July 11. The business mogul, who founded Virgin Galactic almost 20 years ago, made the trip aboard the spaceship with five other team members.

Even though the decision seems out of this world for now, the 43-year-old actor isn't giving hope for the future. "But at some point," he added. "I will be going to space."

Ashton reportedly secured his spot back in 2012, which would be three years before he married his former co-star, Mila. The couple also share two children, Wyatt, 6, and Dimitri, 4, so you can say it's worth reevaluating the risk.
This wouldn't be the first time the 37-year-old actress gave her husband some noteworthy advice, but this would be a time where he actually did end up listening. In an interview back in April, Mila recalled advising Ashton on some entrepreneurial matters—of which he did not end up taking—and in hindsight, it sounds like he made the right decision.
