Today, Brad Pitt – A Gun-Wielding Pirate-Hunting Astronaut in the upcoming movie Ad Astra – -screen character: on astronaut on board the International Space Station. While at NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas, Pitt chatted with astronaut Nick Hague who has been living on the ISS since March.
ISS astronauts are fairly accustomed to doing interviews with journalists and schoolchildren while in space, but it's a rare occasion when a movie actor is the voice on the line. Pitt started his line of questioning firmly in the entertainment sphere, asking Hague how realistic his new movie is when it comes to physics. (While the movie comes out on Earth, Hague and his fellow astronauts got in advance.)

"What is that like the psyche?" Asked Pitt. "I'm sure you're busy, but at the same time missing loved ones at home. How do you keep your mental state at peace? "Hague's answer:" One of the luxuries I think we are working in low earth orbit close to the earth is the amount of connectivity that we have. "He pointed out that he can easily
Apparently, the astronauts have.
Apparently, the astronauts have a rotating playlist. "It's nice because we have the international flair as well," said Hague. "So we have an Italian astronaut on board, along with the US astronauts and then two cosmonauts.
The entire interview took about 20 minutes; you can watch the full video above. Pitt expertly rounded out the discussion with one very important acting question. "Nick, last question, and I need to call on your expertise," said Pitt. "Who was more believable: Clooney or Pitt?"
