Former astronaut Buzz Aldrin may not have any Oscars, but then how many actors can say they walked on the moon.

Aldrin decorated his tux with some of the sparkling gold medals he's collected for his real-life gravity defying feats over the years when he attended the Night of 100 Stars Oscar viewing party in Beverly Hills. This was his 10th year at the bash.

"I come here for the good looking guys, and mostly, the good looking girls," said Aldrin, winking. "It's the pomp and ceremony of Hollywood."

And about those medals: "I feel that girls aren't the only ones that can wear symbolic jewelry!"
