Showbiz Spy reports:
Ashton, 35, recently put down a whopping $250,000 deposit to reserve a spot on Branson’s Virgin Galactic suborbital spacecraft. And now, the hunky actor and adventuresome entrepreneur are said to be best buddies.
“YOU should see them in action,” said a source. “It’s a case of the egos have landed as they’ve become their own backslapping boys’ club.
“The two have a lot in common and have even started calling themselves ‘space bros.’ Ashton’s totally into it.”
The source say Ashton’s girlfriend, actress Mila Kunis, “thinks the bromance is great. She really wants to meet Richard and is even talking about getting her own space ticket.”
Branson, 62, says Justin Bieber just signed up for Virgin Galactic’s space flight, and it’s been reported that Tom Hanks, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie also have spots on the list.
“And it goes without saying that Mila is also looking forward to a vacation on Necker Island!” said the mole.
