Beyond his successful career in the entertainment industry, Ashton Kutcher is known for identifying and investing in major companies before they blow up. Unfortunately for his wife, Mila Kunis, she might not be quite as qualified.
The That ‘70s Show alum Mila Kunis paid a visit to The Late Show on Thursday, April 29, where she talked to host Stephen Colbert about her husband Ashton Kutcher’s acumen as a venture capitalist.
As Colbert was praising Ashton Kutcher, he asked Mila if Ashton asks for her advice before investing--which is when she admitted to not always having the best track record as a consultant.
“Early in our dating, two things came up. He was like, ‘Hey, there’s this company, it’s kind of like a rideshare ... kind of like a cab company, but anybody can drive the cab,’” she explained, going on to say, “I was like, ‘That’s the worst idea ever.’” The Two and a Half Men star was talking about Uber.
She continued, “Second time, he sat me down and was like, ‘Hey, Babe, I got to explain this thing to you, tell me if I’m crazy.’ He’s like, ‘There’s this thing, it’s like mining for money. It’s called cryptocurrency, and there’s this company’—this is eight-plus years ago.”
He was talking about Bitcoin.’” “And I was like, ‘Well, I think this is a horrible idea,’” Mila Kunis said to Colbert. ”And he went, ‘Cool, we’re investing in it.’ So he didn’t listen to me. I mean, this happens all the time.”
