Mila Kunis Admits It Was ‘Selfish’ to Deny Ashton Space Trip: ‘Now It’s Too Late’ – Mila Kunis isn’t sure she should’ve come down so hard on Ashton Kutcherwanting to go on a civilian space flight — she was just scared!
Kutcher, 43, revealed earlier this month that he previously had a ticket to ride in one of Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic flights, which take civilians to the outer atmospheric layers of Earth. But after his Kunis, 37, said that the voyage wasn’t “a smart family decision” (the couple share daughter Wyatt Isabelle, 6, and son Dimitri Portwood, 4), Kutcher sold the ticket back.
Reflecting on it now, Kunis tells PEOPLE she regrets asking him to return the ticket in a moment of panic over their family’s future.
“We get together nine years ago and he was like, ‘I have a ticket to go to space.’ I was like, ‘Oh, okay.’ I was like, ‘That’s fun, have fun,'” she says.
But her feelings changed once they welcomed daughter Wyatt Isabelle in October 2014 and son Dimitri Portwood in November 2016.
“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 remembers telling her husband. “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.'”
Kunis recalls then asking him to return the ticket. “Being the sweet man that he was,” Kunis says, Kutcher decided to please his wife.
“I know I hate it,” she says of the decision now. “Also I’m such [Star Trekfan]. The fact that I didn’t let him go into space was so selfish of me, 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.”
“I want everybody to know I probably would have let him to go to space now, but now it’s too late,” she adds.
