Space tourism is too pricey for Tom Hanks.

When Jeff Bezos offered the Oscar-winning actor the opportunity to board a Blue Origin LLC flight, he told the billionaire it was too expensive, Hanks said during an interview on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” on Tuesday. The 65-year-old actor said he’s doing well financially, but wouldn’t pay “about $28 million” for a 12-minute flight.
