Just a week after hosting an epic Daily Show reunion, Stephen Colbert is back with another amazing segment. This time Colbert taps Brad Pitt, who is currently promoting his new movie War Machine, to take part in the ongoing series, “Big Questions with Even Bigger Stars.”

In the clip, Colbert and Pitt cuddle up on a picnic blanket, gaze at the night sky and ponder some of life’s biggest questions.

As they adorably call each other increasingly ridiculous pet names — starting at “Stevie” and finishing with “Brad to the bone” — the duo give hilarious answers to questions like “do you believe in life after death?,” “are humans basically good or evil?,” and “is beauty only skin deep?”

This feature is following on from Brad Pitt’s GQ Style cover story, where he opened up about equally big issues such as getting sober, his post-divorce life and putting his children first.

In other tv news, Seth McFarlane’s Star Trek spoof, The Orville looks every bit as hilarious as you’d expect.
