Mila Kunis admits she thought Ashton Kutcher’s investment in Uber was a terrible idea

Mila Kunis is not always so sure about her husband Ashton Kutcher’s investments. The 37-year-old actress appeared on Thursday’s episode of The Last Show with Stephen Colbert, and revealed that there has been more than one occasion when a company became enormously successful after she told her husband it was a bad idea.

“This happens every night. The sad thing is, it probably happens too often,” he admitted. “The best part of him is that he is very smart in including me in everything and making sure that I am aware of everything that is going on. He is also very smart in knowing that sometimes you shouldn’t listen to your wife.”

While Kunis said she considers herself someone who has “very good instincts about consumer goods” and is knowledgeable about a “certain demographic,” it is her husband of 43 years who has his sights set on the future when it’s about being a company. capitalist.

“He will bring me companies and tell me, ‘We have a company here that we are thinking of investing in,'” Kunis said, before sharing two cases that came up “at the beginning of our appointments.” Kunis and Kutcher married in 2015 and share two children, Wyatt, 6, and Dimitri, 4.

“My dad in real life is a taxi driver, he was a taxi driver, now he’s retired, so I grew up on the tips of a taxi driver,” Kunis said. “Then [Kutcher’s] like, ‘This company exists. It is like a taxi company, but anyone can drive a taxi. I was like, ‘That’s the worst idea I’ve ever had. Why? What?'”

“And he said, ‘Let me buy you this. It’s called Uber. Let me order it for you. You can try it,'” he continued. “And I was like, ‘Are you going to put me in a car with a stranger? What’s wrong with you?’ I was furious with him. “

After failing to see the potential in Uber, Kunis also scrapped the idea of ​​Bitcoin.

“He says, ‘Hey, honey, I have to explain this to you. Tell me if I’m crazy. ‘ And I was like, ‘Great, what’s up babe?’ “He recalled.” He told me, ‘There’s something. It’s like mining for money. It’s called cryptocurrency. It’s called Bitcoin.’ This was more than eight years ago. “

“He explains all of this to me and I was like, ‘Well, is it FDIC insured?’ And he said, ‘No. That’s the point. It’s not,’ “Kunis continued. “And I was like, ‘Well, who’s going to make sure it’s safe?’ He was like, ‘That’s the point!’ And I was like, ‘Well, I think this is a horrible idea.’ And he said, ‘Great, we’re investing it.

Kunis noted that the Uber and Bitcoin examples are just two of many. Kutcher has also invested in companies like Spotify, SoundCloud, and Airbnb.

“My husband is very intelligent … There are companies all the time that I find it so ridiculous to talk about it,” she said. “Why would I want to sleep on someone’s couch and pay for it? It’s ridiculous and yet here we are. I Airbnb everything, use Uber everywhere, and use cryptocurrency. So guess what? I’ve never been happier. to be wrong. “
