Tom Hanks was invited to travel into space by Blue Origin founder Jeff Bezos but the actor turned down the coveted and highly-expensive spot.
During an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Tuesday, the Oscar-winner, 65, shared the hilarious reason why.
"Is it true that you were asked to go to space by Jeff Bezos before William Shatner?" Kimmel asked his guest.
"Well, yeah, provided I pay," Hanks responded. "And, you know, it costs like 28 million bucks or something like that. I’m doing good, Jimmy. I’m doing good. But I ain’t paying [28 million] bucks. You know what? We could simulate the experience of going to space right now. It’s about a 12-minute flight. Is that about it? We could all do it in our seats right here."
