Los Angeles: Hollywood actress Sandra Bullock`s new space movie ‘Gravity’ has been given the seal of approval from a real-life astronaut.

The 49-year-old actress plays a medical engineer on a space shuttle mission with a veteran astronaut, played by George Clooney, in filmmaker Alfonso Cuaron`s new sci-fi movie, reported Ace Showbiz.

The film premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in Canada and was given a thumbs up from Canadian spaceman Chris Hadfield, who was in the audience at the screening.

Hadfield said, "Fortunately, the five months I spent on the space station were way calmer. But the visuals were spectacularly good. I don`t know how you did it. And if I ever fly in space again, I want to fly with Sandra."

Hadfield spent five months aboard the International Space Station before touching back down to Earth in May.
