Remember that awesome astronaut Cady Coleman, who chatted with Sandra Bullock from the International Space Station to help her prepare for her starring role in the upcoming movie, “Gravity”? She’s back on Earth now, and got the chance to meet her movie star mentee in person. In this joint interview, Bullock talks about what she learned from their conversations, and Coleman discusses how her choice to have long, thick hair in space was much more than just a fashion statement. “I had bigger hair up there,” Coleman explains. “I let it grow because I wanted it to scream ‘Zero G, there is a woman in space,’ for these girls.” Hear, hear! Check out the video above to see Coleman and Bullock’s sweet rapport, as well as some great shots from Coleman’s stay on the Space Station. [The Mary Sue]
