Ashton Kutcher purchased a Virgin Galactic ticket to fly into space, which he told Kunis about in 2012 shortly after they began dating. But after he had a baby with Mila Kunis in 2014, she told him it wasn’t a “smart family decision.”
“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,” Kutcher explained in an Interview with Cheddar News.
But in an interview with People (via Yahoo), Kunis said she had come to regret her stance about Kutcher’s dream to go to space.
“Years goes by then all of a sudden we have a baby and he’s like, ‘I’m going into space.’ And I was like, ‘That’s irresponsible, you cannot have… This is not what you do. You are a father,’” Kunis admitted saying to Kutcher. “I was all so hormonal and I was like, ‘You can’t, you’re going to die. The thing’s going to explode and you’re going to die — and you’re going to leave me with the babies.’
The “Black Swan” and “Family Guy” actor now says she “hates” having taken away Kutcher’s dream.
“The fact that I didn’t let him go into space was so selfish of me,” she said, “but I was a new mom and I was like, ‘You can’t leave me and the babies.’ And so that’s where that decision was made out of.”
Kunis said if her husband asked again, she “probably would have let him to go space now, but now it’s too late.”
