Chris Pine got decked out in a series of suits for the June issue of GQ. His role as Captain Kirk in Star Trek has everyone buzzing, but he looks equally hot showing off his sense of style. In the article Chris shares a few tidbits about his career and working with Lindsay Lohan. Here are highlights:
- On getting teased for his Star Trek role: "It’s pretty f*cking 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."
- On whether or not he was a Trekkie growing up: "I was a Star Wars kid. The kitsch factor in the original Star Trek series is high, but the show manages to take on these huge questions about race, sex, and war. I have a great appreciation for what Mr. Shatner did with the part. There’s a gravity to it, but he’s having fun."
- On starring in Just My Luck with Lindsay Lohan: "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."

But while the pacing is much improved in Angels and Demons, the mindless entertainment part is basically ruined thanks to an enormous amount of expository dialogue. . In other words, it's a buzzkill.
After a nice week following his well-received SNL episode, Justin Timberlake found himself in a bit of a scandal yesterday. Southern Hospitality, the restaurant he once associated himself with, was hit with a sexual harassment suit from one of the Manhattan restaurant's former managers. Back in February Justin said he doesn't actually own any part of the eatery, but he's still named as one of the defendants in the case. Seems like JT might have known that there was a storm brewing so tell us — was it smart to disassociate from Southern Hospitality?
