OK, ladies, this one is for you. It’s Chris Pine on the cover of Esquire’s Spring Style Special. Captain Kirk is in good hands, yes?
And there’s a Pine interview in the British publication, too. Among the Star Trek-related comments:
“Star Trek scared me a lot. It terrified me, really. Because of the scale, the responsibility, the fact that it was this iconic character. It was the bigger challenge. So I had to take it.”
“I wasn’t a fan of Star Trek. It didn’t excite me. All I wanted at that time was a part that I really connected to and when my agent said, ‘Star Trek’, I said, ‘No! Have you not been hearing anything I’ve said? 'Star Trek' is the furthest thing from what I want to do.’”
By the way, British Esquire obviously has a thing for Star Trek. Remember this cover from back in 2009?
