Tom Hanks was the featured guest on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" Tuesday, during which he said Jeff Bezos originally approached him about flying to space but he turned it down because of the price. 

Opening the show, Kimmel asked the 65-year-old actor whether it was true that the Amazon billionaire approached him about a spaceflight before the actor William Shatner, who was launched into space last month by Bezos' rocket company, Blue Origin. Hanks responded: "Well, yeah, provided I pay."

"And, you know, it cost 28 million bucks or something like that. And I'm doing good, Jimmy. I'm doing good. But I ain't paying" $28 million, Hanks added.

  • The title was changed to Tom Hanks says Jeff Bezos offered him $28m spaceflight before William Shatner
 

I saw the show last night. I like Tom Hanks. He's really funny. His simulation of a space flight was hilarious.

William Shatner was more appropriate for the flight with his Star Trek series.

Tom was still traumatized by his Apollo 13 gig...
