In Douchebag Space Travel News, the Two and A Half Men and some-other-stuff-star is the 500th “astronaut customer” to sign up for a trip on Virgin Galactic, the space line founded by billionaire Sir Richard Branson.
“I gave Ashton a quick call to congratulate and welcome him,” Branson wrote in a blog post Monday. ”He is as thrilled as we are at the prospect of being among the first to cross the final frontier (and back!) with us and to experience the magic of space for himself.”
Tickets for the flight are $200,000 for a two-and-a-half hour flight and require a $20,000 deposit. Kutcher won’t actually be leaving earth until sometime next year, so there’s plenty more time for him to annoy us down here.
Of course, he isn’t the only celeb to sign up for the once in a lifetime space trip, reportedly Katy Perry, Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie and world renowned physicist (and stripper enthusiast) Stephen Hawking have also bought tickets.
I say we leave Ashton and Katy up there. Seriously.
