Star Trek‘s Captain Kirk, Chris Pine, dons some summer suits for GQ magazine. In the accompanying interview, he’s asked about playing Captain Kirk, Star Trek fans and Lindsay Lohan. Here are a few of the highlights:
You play Captain James T. Kirk. Any razzing from old friends of late? It’s pretty fucking inescapable. I play basketball with a bunch of guys at 9:30 a.m. and it’s like, “Yo, wussup, Captain Kirk!” I don’t have a smart comeback yet.
Surely tiptoeing around the rabid fan base–calling him “Mr. Shatner” and all that–must get old? The amount of dissection of the minutiae of this movie…I was blown away by the protectiveness. I’m definitely guilty of looking at the blogs, and I’m not a fan of the anonymity [of the Internet], how it allows people to just spew poisonous vitriol like vomit.
What was the state of the Lindsay Lohan circus when you starred opposite her in Just My Luck [in 2006]? She was making a lot of money and attracting a lot of attention from the paparazzi. It put in stark relief that I don’t want that kind of life.
