IT was strife, Jim — but not as we know it — when CHRIS PINE threw a strop at the premiere of Star Trek.

The actor who stars as Captain Kirk in the sci-fi release, was less than happy that co-star SIMON PEGG — who plays Scotty — got more attention than him at London’s Leceister Square on Monday.

My source tells me: “Chris was really annoyed because Simon got all the laughs at the premiere — both during the film and on the red carpet.”

The miffed Enterprise commander beamed himself straight back to his hotel after the screening, shunning the after-party at Skylon restaurant in Waterloo.

So Pegg was left to bask in all his glory with an endless supply of tequila till 1am.


AN!imporant: This is in fact a classic case of misunderstanding as the photo here was taken at the said after party at Skylon which Chris “supposedly” bailed on for said reasons above. My guess is Chris preferred to change into something more comfortable instead of his suit so he would better enjoy himself with his friends. Maybe next time they can get their story straight.

    These gossip magazines only write bullshit! And the main actor in this film is Chris, everybody knows it!!

  2. Fran says:

    Really! That’s ridiculous. Gossip rags suck.

  3. Carrie says:

    *rollseyes* That’s ridiculous.

    I’m sure the locals in Australia were more psyched to see Eric Bana than Chris et al, too. Maybe the dude was just getting tired or something. It’s been a long press tour.

    And “The Sun” strikes again.

    They are very well known for trying to cause strife and reporting “news”.

  6. Robin says:

    “The Sun” is known for trying to cast shadows on those it reports on. It’s sad.

    SIMON’S BLOG: Pine fresh
    Just wanted to extend a huge thanks to all those who came down for the London Premiere of Star Trek on Monday. It was a fantastic night which culminated in a great party at the Royal Festival Hall. Seeing the movie in the main theatre at the Empire Leicester Square was nothing short of exhilarating. The crowd was pumped, the atmosphere was electric and the sound was turned up to eleven. I still haven’t been able to get the smell of dilithium out of my kilt.

    In my ongoing fight against mean spirited journalism, I feel I should wade in and defend my NBF, Chris Pine who according to the British Sun newspaper, “was really annoyed because Simon got all the laughs at the premiere — both during the film and on the red carpet.” He then went on to “shun” the party. Let’s just be clear about this, Chris really isn’t the type to shun; he’s not a shunner and nobody at the party (that he most certainly did attend) felt his enshunment. He actually spent a good hour posing for photos with my family, who for the next 24 hours seemed incapable of saying anything other than, “Chris is lovely, isn’t he?” I’m guessing the story was twisted from generous statements he made on the red carpet about his fellow actors that (horror of horrors) he might have expressed with a hint of irony. Like me saying “damn you Pine you handsome talented bastard!” as I do every night before bed.

    Trust me, you are going to love Chris’s Kirk. He demonstrates all the swagger of Shatner and combines it with a lightness and likability which is all his own. If anyone walks off with this movie, it’s The Pine .

    Oh, boy! Thanks, Carrie; that’s the kind of investigative journalism I dig! How gracious of Simon; and what a great sense of humor he’s got! I esp. like his phrase “felt his enshunment”: sounds kinda naughty! 🙂

    LOL my favorite was “Like me saying “damn you Pine you handsome talented bastard!” as I do every night before bed.”
