Perhaps "Gravity" was just too realistic for some viewers.

In a press conference in Mexico City, director Alfonso Cuaron was fielding questions about his new blockbuster space thriller when he got an unusual question from one of the reports.

Carlos "El Capi" Perez, a field reporter for the comedy talk show "Deberian Estar Trabajando (You Should be Working)" asked the director what it was like to film in outer space.

"I think that all of us who love cinema, film professional, those of us who perhaps make movies have the same doubt," Perez started, according to the Huffington Post. What were the technical and physical difficulties of filming in space?"

"Perhaps we all have the same question, isn't that right colleagues?" he continued. "Was it very difficult? Was it complicated to shoot in space? Did the cameramen get dizzy? I don't know."

Cuaron was momentarily stunned, but soon came back with a facetious answer.

"We yeah, we took some camera in the Soyuz Russian missions. We were there for three and a half months, right? Three and a half months in space," he said.

As the audience began to laugh, Cuaron continued. "I did get very dizzy in the training."

Perez later tweeted "Forgive me Twitter for being a professional committed to information. Don't tell me I was the only one who had that doubt."

Common sense, not as common as you`d like to think.

Oh God, words can't even begin... was this the ultimate Deadpan? Or am I just being a hopeless optimist?
