Ten years ago, American actor Ashton Kutcher was planning to be among the first people to ride on Virgin Galactic’s private spaceship until fatherhood changed his mind. The 43-year-old actor has two kids with wife Mila Kunis.

The ‘No Strings Attached’ actor told news streaming site ‘Cheddar News’ that he was supposed to be on the next Virgin Galactic flight but pulled out years ago.

“When I got married and had kids, my wife basically encouraged (me) 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 said.

“I was supposed to be on the next flight, but I will not be on the next flight,” he added.

According to Richard Branson’s blog in 2012, Kutcher was the 500th person to buy a $200,000 ticket for his space venture – Virgin Galactic. But Kutcher began dating the ‘Friends with Benefits’ actor Kunis that year, and they married in 2015. The couple now has two children.

Kutcher said he hasn’t given up plans to get to space. “At some point, I’m surely going to space,” he said.

British entrepreneur Richard Branson and five other Virgin Galactic employees recently took the first fully crewed test flight to space.
