The 43-year-old purchased a ticket from Virgin Galactic — Richard Branson's aerospace company — in 2012 for $200,000, according to Reuters, but did not get to hold on to his ticket after his wife Mila Kunis caught wind.

"I was supposed to be on the next flight, but I will not be on the next flight," the Two and a Half Men star told Cheddar News. "But at some point, I’m going to space."

Kutcher explained that when he and Kunis tied the knot and had kids, the 37-year-old "basically encouraged that it was not a smart family decision to be heading into space when we have young children." Kutcher then sold his ticket back to Virgin Galactic.

The couple starred in That 70s Show together before they got hitched in 2015. They share children, Wyatt, 6, and Dimitri, 4.

Bezos became the richest person to go to space. His ship reached 12 miles higher than Branson's at 62 miles above Earth to what is known as the Kármán line in the ten-minute journey. Branson's flew approximately 50 miles above Earth, CNN noted.

Virgin Galactic reportedly intends to carry out another test flight before it starts flying paying customers to space. More than 600 people have reportedly reserved tickets which range from $200,000 to $250,000 and they are believed to reopen ticket sales in the near future at a higher price. According to Branson's blog at the time, Kutcher was the 500th person to buy a ticket.
