st100In two months the new stars of Star Trek will be getting back together to shoot the sequel, but last night (Thursday) most of Trek’s new leading men were together at GQ’s Men of the Year 2011 party. On hand at the LA event were Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Anton Yelchin and John Cho. Check out the photos below, plus photos of Zoe Saldana at another LA event from this week.

1. Mark from germany - November 19, 2011

Nice dress, Miss Saldana….and first

2. DJT - November 19, 2011

Zoe. Beautiful as ever.

3. MJ - November 19, 2011

Quinto has to take the worst photos of practically any actor I have ever seen. How can someone who is so outstanding on the big and small screen always look like such a dweeb in front of a still camera? Time after time, in these event photos, he always looks like he is having the worst time and would like to be anywhere else but where he is? And he is always wearing the kind of suit you might find on the $50 rack at JC Penny, and it is always one size too small on him, which gives him a bobblehead appearance. Great actor…weird dude!

4. Azrael - November 19, 2011

Hey Anthony, Rosario, somebody, did I miss an article about Marina and Brent doing the voices of Supervillains on Young Justice? Just wondering, cause I thought it was cool, especially since Brent is succeeding Mark Hamill as Warner/DC’s Animated Joker on TV (the guy on Under the Red Hood doesn’t count cause it’s a “one-shot” straight to video).

5. Harry Ballz - November 19, 2011

Quinto looks like one uptight dude.

Saldana obviously needs special lighting in order to look good.

That up close bottom photo of her looks really bad.

And she’s even wearing LOTS of makeup.

Not that I expect all celebrities to look good, but the ones who claim to be sex symbols

Uh, YES.

6. Randomosity - November 19, 2011

Welp… they all look 5 years older. Maybe these are just bad pictures but I don’t think Anton can pass for 17 anymore. One more reason to get on those sequels faster!

Also, except for Chris, why can’t any of them smile?

7. CmdrR - November 19, 2011

The photographer sucks.
MJ – very on the nose.
I like Chris’ shoes, but the clothes are poorly tailored (a middle button shouldn’t strain on guys that thin) and the lighting and framing are horrible. Who got cropped out of the 2 shot or is Pine’s negative space somehow mystically important? Are luminati hiding in there somewhere?
Finally… SOMEBODY call a time limit on the “I’m too cool to shave this morning” look. It doesn’t work 99% of the time. And these guys are NOT the 1%.

8. CmdrR - November 19, 2011

oops…. meant Quinto’s negative space.

9. Buzz Cagney - November 19, 2011

I never really got into that whole Quinto looks so like Nimoy thing. And this confirms it!

10. Al - November 19, 2011

Pine looks old and acned, Pinto looks heavy

11. I'm Dead Jim! - November 19, 2011

Zach… say goodbye to those eyebrows!

12. Eric Cheung - November 19, 2011

I don’t know. I think the suits look fine, especially Yelchin’s, but Quinto could have run an iron over his. Early 60s/Early 80s skinny ties appear still to be in, as well as late 60s to early 80s three-piece suits. Cool.

I think it’s more the photography wasn’t very good. Part of that is lighting, and part of that is just that they don’t look very comfortable. It must be very hard to look comfortable in that line. It’s maybe the worst chore of the party for them.

13. Iva - November 19, 2011

Anton is the one I wouldn’t recognize, horrible shooting angle. All three of them actually, their bodies compared to their heads, must be some amateur photographers.

@ 3. MJ – Google paparazzi pictures of him walking around town, looks and acts awkward as fuck, would think he can’t act to save his life lol.
@ 5. HB – Saldana is 35+ what do you expect?

14. Steve87 - November 19, 2011

I like Pine’s Hair in these photos, looks a lot like shats kirk hairstyle, they should go with this style for the movie

15. AJ - November 19, 2011

Zach Quinto and an open pack of American Spirit indoors at an event in California no less. Jeez, you can stop emulating Nimoy now.

And American Spirit? Really? Oh, that’s the one that helps the Big Tobacco corporation owned by Native Americans.

16. Cygnus-X1 - November 19, 2011

I don’t think I’ve ever seen such a concentration of catty remarks around here before.

Must be that time of the month and you ladies are all out of Midol.

17. Eric Cheung - November 19, 2011

15. Except for the sexism I agree.

18. Tanner Waterbury - November 19, 2011

I LOL’d at Pine’s reaxction faces….Happy Pine is Happy…. OH S**T!!! SERIOUS PINE IS SERIOUS! And Quinto is inbetween happy, annoyed and grumpy.

19. CmdrR - November 19, 2011

Midol doesn’t make it easier to cope with a four-years-in-the-making, got a backseat on the production schedule to Transformers 3, $15 per ticket, probably gonna be more sfx than character moments, still no guarantee of seeing Rand in a sonic shower movie.

Sorry. Must be having man cramps.

20. Sebastian S. - November 19, 2011

Almost time for ZQ to start shaving down those eyebrows… ouch! :-o
Get the tree trimmers… ;-D

21. Nony - November 19, 2011

John Cho’s looking sharp, very sixties. Love the white pocket square. And I like Yelchin’s suit as well.

Pine is in need of a different tie and a weed-whacker to the head, but he always looks great in a three-piece suit. ZQ…I wish he’d show as much colour and quirk on the red carpet as he does in his casual outfits.

Zoe’s dress is lovely and she looks good considering she’s just gone through a breakup. I’d still be wallowing on the couch with a carton of Phish Food.

22. AJ - November 19, 2011

Regardless of all the whingeing about how they all look (which is pretty great considering how busy they’ve all been), I just wish them all the best as they get to making the next and best ‘Star Trek’ film ever.

23. Lord Garth, Formerly of Izar - November 19, 2011

Pine’s hairline is morphing into late 60′s Shat which is good. Maybe not so good in another 5 years for Chris but right now he has a dead on 2nd season Kirk hairline and forehead

24. Phil - November 19, 2011

Oh oh, ZQ still has the eyebrows….

25. DeShonn Steinblatt - November 19, 2011

You sound like a bunch of bitter old queens hissing at their youngers.

And I’ll take fashion advice from a Trekkie when Sarah Palin is president.

26. Keachick - rose pinenut - November 19, 2011

#15 Considering that the majority of people who post here are males, I find your comment odd. Without knowing for sure, I think I may be the first female to post on this thread.

Anyway, I agree with people about the badly fitting suits. Pine’s suit is probably the best fit. However, the real problem is the ties. I’ve said it before and I’ll no doubt keep saying it. Ties can make the best man look like a dick. If you want to see someone, my favourite “conifer” look sooo good in a three piece suit WITHOUT a tie, look no further than Chris in scenes from This Means War – YES!

The fact that Chris looks calm and relaxed is because of my love and encouragement… Now Dee might tell you that it is because of a certain DP – all conjecture…:)
Papz(?) photos from the past have shown Chris to be looking quite grumpy and miserable at times. Some of us fans have been concerned and have said so, on bloggs like JustJared. Who knows – maybe Chris (or his publicity agent) have seen the concern in the comments. I always send a message to Chris to “Take care. Love ya!” I have no idea if he ever gets it. Yep, sappy, schmaltzy, gooey. No doubt others here know a lot more expressions that could be used in a negative and derogatory way.

Pine looking acned? He is looking the best he’s ever looked, considering that in fact, Chris Pine has had severe acne since his teenage years. I see little in the way of scarring that he used to have. Perhaps that is because of the stubble look (not doing a close shave every day) that is all the rage among guys today. A lot of shaving (whether it is with a razor or electric shaver) can exacerbate any acne problems.

From memory, this “I won’t bother shaving today” started with actor Don Johnson from the 80s TV series Miami Vice. It became a bit of a fad then, went away and has now come back. Hopefully, it will disappear down some hole, although some men don’t look too bad with that style. Others – ugh!

Hairstyle makes them look like gangsters, with that comb back and hair gel. Put simply, bloody awful! Of course, it could be that JJ Abrams and co. are doing a re-imagining of a Piece of the Action for the next movie, so Chris and Zachary are preparing…:)

Zachary Quinto has always worn *odd* clothes. “It’s his way”. Go Zach!

27. rm10019 - November 19, 2011

25 – thank YOU. These trolls and morons don’t comment on real Trek news, just snap their fingers and mock others. Sad. Wish I had an ignore button and rid my monitor of ever seeing their screen names again. idiots.

28. Nony - November 19, 2011

26. I’m a female, Keachick! :)

29. jorDe' - November 19, 2011

What makes these guys think that a 5 O’Clock shadow make them look good?
John Cho looked at least like he prepared to attend.

Zoe, you still look good enough to “break furniture” with.
{{{;-[)>

30. Harry Ballz - November 19, 2011

13. Iva “HB – Saldana is 35+ what do you expect?”

Better.

31. Keachick - rose pinenut - November 19, 2011

OK, Nony. Nice to know there is another female.

Actually it might be interesting if all the posters could put a simple F or M or F/M if they are both (or neither?) beside their names…However, I am fairly certain that females are in the minority here. Some I do know are female are, me, you Nony, Charla, NCM, Aurore, Dee… have I missed anyone?

“5 O’clock shadow” is what is called current male fashion. If only these guys knew how dorky it can make them look..:) Gotta love ‘em!

32. Snugglepuff - November 19, 2011

I fail to understand why people think Saldana looks good. She doesn’t.

33. Iva - November 19, 2011

She used to though.

34. Aurore - November 19, 2011

“…have I missed anyone?”

Olivia!

:)

35. freezejeans - November 19, 2011

Man. Does Quinto EVER smile? Ever? Every photo of him looks the same.

36. Cygnus-X1 - November 19, 2011

19. CmdrR – November 19, 2011

No apology necessary. That is the right way to complain.

37. Lt. Dakin - November 19, 2011

Quinto and Pine look like they are ready for “Assignment: Earth” in their picture together!!

38. Odkin - November 19, 2011

Why does Chris Pine always look slightly cross-eyed?

39. rebecca - November 19, 2011

I love ALL the pics of CP, ZQ, AC,JC and ZS! they all look handsome, gorgeous, sexy, dashing, beautiful and good-looking!

40. trekker 5 - November 19, 2011

#34,Aurore,thanks for thinking about me!! :) Chris looks sexy,God those eyes!! :) And so does ZQ! Don;t care if he’s gay,I’ll always have a cursh on him! ;)

41. marla - November 19, 2011

I looked at other photos from this event and pretty much everybody (not just the Trek men) looked really odd. Like GQ hired Diane Arbus to set up the lighting and camera angle.

Props to John Cho, though. Even at his most casual, I’ve never seen him show up to a red carpet looking like he just rolled out of bed.

42. Keachick - rose pinenut - November 19, 2011

How could I forget to mention those lovely Pine blue eyes? According to IMDb, those amazing blue eyes of his are one of his defining and notable features.

Cross-eyed? I don’t see it myself, although one of my family thought that he looked slightly cross-eyed in one of the scenes in Star Trek. One eye does close up more than the other sometimes. It is the same with his father, Robert Pine. I guess this happens when they are a bit tired or something. In these photos, Chris Pine would be wearing contact lenses. He’s said that he can’t cope for very long without wearing either lenses or glasses. I think it is similar with Zachary Quinto as well.

Re the male “5 o’clock shadow” fad(?). These guys could quite rightly come back and say that there is nothing wrong with allowing their manly hair to grow naturally, if they want, and of course, they would be right. The only thing that I do request, as a female with smooth, sensitive facial skin, that they use a beard/stubble hair conditioner, so that it can be soft and smooth. Now I realise that Quinto’s natural, hardwired inclinations are not for the female of the species, however this request applies to him as well as Chris and the other guys, because I can see Zach giving a nice lady a friendly peck on the cheeks.

43. Keachick - rose pinenut - November 19, 2011

There is a Papz(?) picture taken of Chris Pine not looking the way he looks in these GQ pictures. He really did looked he had fallen out of bed. It was taken of him in what looked like a supermarket. Still, as cute as a button, though…

44. Keachick - rose pinenut - November 19, 2011

Edit: looked he had… should be “looked as if he had…”

Sorry, just the memory of that photo distracted me…:)

45. amy - November 19, 2011

let me guess it is because ZQ is gay that’s why you people are so filled with hate towards him right? there are tone of pics out there with him smiling so first you all are lying? seriously? WTF? are you are really that homophobic? interesting how all the straight people you all love but the one actor who has ever show any respect to ST fanbase in this new group simply becaude he is gay you all bitch and trash. Pathetic. And spare me the ‘but we love George’ it is easy to love George he plays the queen for tv and isn’t in a lead role NOW. Oh by the way Pine is one of the most sour looking rich boy ever. Most of his pics in Hollywood he is flipping his figure at people or refusing to sign for fans?and you lyng bigots know it, the man is never pleasant or polite even his ex called his difficult so again why do you bigots pretend he is a saint because he is straight while attacking the one cast member they all claim is down to earth and easy oh wait he is gay ever mind

46. DS9 IN PRIME TIME - November 19, 2011

So zack and Chris smoke american spirit cigs LOL

47. Iva - November 19, 2011

45. amy – Would you kindly point out all that supposed homophobic “bitching and trashing ” on this topic? I don’t see any.

48. Harry Ballz - November 19, 2011

Hey, check this out. In the close up photo of Pine, he looks to have a full head of hair. And yet, in the photo of Pine and Quinto sitting together, check out Pine’s forehead, on the left side up at the top. It looks like it’s receding quite a bit. These photos were taken within seconds of each other at the same event, so how could this be? Any thoughts?

49. Iva - November 19, 2011

That part of his skull is pushed in a bit, so you can’t see it from the front, only from an angle.

50. Iva - November 19, 2011

It’s just a protruding forehead shape, both Anton and Saldana have it too.

51. Harry Ballz - November 19, 2011

What is he, part Talosian?

52. Odkin - November 19, 2011

Quinto is CLEARLY going for the retro late 50′s early 60′s clothes style. Note the narrow lapels, narrow shoulders and skinny tie.

He doesn’t have the “cool” to pull it off though. That makes the look change from “Madison Avenue ad-man” to “hipster douche”.

53. sean - November 19, 2011

I was just thinking we’ve got some real Dapper Dans in this new cast, then I move to the comments and it’s all nitpicks. Face it fellas, most of you wish you looked half as good as these guys.

54. richpit - November 19, 2011

I agree, as I have always said, I don’t get the thing about Zoe. She’s crazy skinny and not at all attractive in the face. That bottom picture of her is downright hard to look at.

Different strokes, I guess….she’s just never done anything for me.

55. Mike C. - November 19, 2011

This is embaressing. Wait — maybe the fact I cannot spell embarressing is emberasseng!! :)

56. NCM - November 19, 2011

Thanks to Sean, Cygnus, and the Women posting here, for showing some class.

I guess the sexual revolution’s coming full circle when men sound like middle school girls. Good Grief, Guys, Get a Grip! I’ve promised my daughter it gets better after high school.

Women on Midol are a helluva lot less miserable than this catty little cadre.

And someone thinks ZQ needs to lose weight? See a therapist.

57. Red Dead Ryan - November 19, 2011

Boy, there are some sour looks on John Cho, Zachary Quinto, and Anton Yelchin. Zoe Saldana looks like she wanted to be somewhere else!

I have to call out the photographer on this. Isn’t the point to capture the actors in a good mood? Y’know, like relaxed and smiliing?

I got to agree with those who are critical of ZQ’s suit. I don’t know what he’s going for, but it isn’t cool.

Zoe Saldana looks fine, but seems like she was more interested in shopping. The second photo of her has her looking snobbish.

And in response to those who are questioning the criticisms: These actors are public figures. They’re well paid. Which means we can criticise them if it’s deemed necessary.

I will say, though, that Chris Pine seems to be the best dresser. Not too many guys can get away wearing a brown suit, but he sure can.

#45.

NOBODY SAID ANYTHING REMOTELY HOMOPHOBIC! Stop with the false accusations!

58. Keachick - rose pinenut - November 19, 2011

#45 Amy – There was only ONE comment made about Zachary Quinto’s sexual orientation and that was by me – “Now I realise that Quinto’s natural, hardwired inclinations are not for the female of the species” and that was simply a statement of fact (as Quinto himself has said). I was not criticizing him or belittling him in any way. I have no reason to do so, nor do I want to. No one else here on this thread has made any mention of Quinto’s sexuality, except you and myself. They just wonder why there are no pictures of him smiling. I’m not sure how you equate that puzzlement with homophobia.

“Oh by the way Pine is one of the most sour looking rich boy ever. Most of his pics in Hollywood he is flipping his figure at people or refusing to sign for fans?and you lyng bigots know it, the man is never pleasant or polite even his ex called his difficult so again why do you bigots pretend he is a saint because he is straight while attacking the one cast member they all claim is down to earth and easy oh wait he is gay ever mind”

If anything, Amy, you are the lying bigot. Nobody is attacking Zachary Quinto and nobody is claiming that Chris Pine is a saint. However, you have gone out of your way to attack us and Chris Pine. As far as I know, Chris Pine has flipped the bird twice to paparazzi since 2009 out of how many pictures, at least 100 …hardly “most of the pics”. Are you trolling or something?

Chris Pine has been known to refuse to give autographs “in my own time”, especially if it is someone or people who come up to him in a restaurant while he is eating. However, on those occasions, those who were refused, all noted how polite and kind he was when he spoke to them explaining his position. Actually, that would have meant more to me than some quickly scrawled signature on a piece of paper.

Others have reported receiving autographs by a very gracious Chris Pine. One occurred after he had given a performance in the play The Lieutenant of Inishmore. The person reported that he looked very tired and strained, however, he signed autographs and engaged in small talk sometimes. It turned out later that the reason why he looked so tired was that he was in pain. The anti-inflammatories he was on, for sacrum and groin muscle injury, had worn off.

BTW, two of our best and fittest All Blacks could no longer play rugby because of similar groin injuries due to accident (same with Chris Pine) and with one of them, it will take him some months before he is fully recovered.

Frankly, Amy, I don’t know what your sources are, but I would find them difficult to take seriously. Unfortunately, your generally derisive demeanour has lead me to this conclusion.

59. Nony - November 19, 2011

Here’s a nice picture of Zach from that party, smiling, if it will brighten anyone’s day. It must be tough to look genuinely happy when there are a dozen flashes going off in your face.

http://cdn03.cdn.socialitelife.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/11/2011-GQ-man-year-red-carpet-11182011-81-430×645.jpg

60. Keachick - rose pinenut - November 19, 2011

Yes. I never doubted there was a nice smile and teeth behind those Quinto lips.

Interesting to see the cigarette packet on the table. Maybe Chris and Zach (among many) are sick of all the PC stuff that surrounds smoking, as in there is virtually nowhere anyone can smoke without being hassled by someone. I do not smoke and I never have, but some of the prohibitions and more proposed have gone too far. Why does smoking have to be banned everywhere? Why can’t there be smoking bars, along with non-smoking bars? It is up to people to chose which they go to, knowing what to expect.

I hope that both Chris and Zach are properly aware of the serious health risks associated with a lot of smoking over time. If they are not, they should wise up, FAST. Perhaps the two of them could reflect on the fact that both William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy are no longer smokers and that this, along with other factors, may have a lot to do with how good these two 80 year old men look! Smoking dries out the skin and can be more aging than too much exposure to the sun. Anyway, just saying because I have been called a worry-wart and because I like these guys.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Natural_American_Spirit

I hope it is true that these cigarettes do contain far fewer toxins than the standard cigarettes.

61. NCM - November 19, 2011

Thanks, Nony. He’s gorgeous, though I’m sure he’s got nothin’ on his faceless critics, here:}

62. Red Dead Ryan - November 19, 2011

#60.

On the one hand, you state that smokers should be allowed the same rights as non-smokers. You don’t care who smokes and where they do it. You can’t stand the PC mentality.

On the other hand, you say Chris and Zach both need to keep away from smoking. And how both need to “wise up” about the health risks. Which seems like you are being not only PC, but imposing your beliefs on others.

Wee bit two-faced, aren’t you?

63. Harry Ballz - November 19, 2011

54. richpit “Zoe……she’s just never done anything for me”

Nor will she! :>)

64. richpit - November 19, 2011

LOL…true dat, Harry!

65. Keachick - rose pinenut - November 19, 2011

How am I being two-faced? I am not imposing my beliefs on anyone.

Cigarette smoking can be a risk to a person’s health and knowing about the health risks is simply being sensible and prudent. I could have said the same about drinking alcohol. There are dangers associated with too much alcohol consumption as well.

However, other posters here commented on the fact that there was a packet of American Spirit cigarettes on the table where Chris and Zach were sitting. It is assumed that the packet belonged to one of them and that both, or one of them, were smoking the cigarettes at some point. I simply pointed out that two long lived and healthy actors no longer smoked – fact. I did not tell either Chris or Zach that they should not smoke and need to keep away from it, simply to reflect on certain facts, if they had not already. Do not put words into my mouth.

“15. AJ – November 19, 2011
Zach Quinto and an open pack of American Spirit indoors at an event in California no less. Jeez, you can stop emulating Nimoy now.
And American Spirit? Really? Oh, that’s the one that helps the Big Tobacco corporation owned by Native Americans.”

RDR – Did you not read this comment on this thread?

BTW, the suit that Chris Pine wears is by Polo Ralph Lauren. I don’t know who made the other men’s suits, but it no doubt cost a *bomb* and yet it looks like it could have come out of a Salvation Army op. shop. In fact, they all do, pretty much. Don’t say I didn’t warn you. If the latest tailoring of suits by high-end designers can’t make these yummy guys look good in them, think what the rest of the male population are in for when the cheaper knock off copies start appearing in shops and department stores around the world. Cripes, makes me almost consider “going bush”.

66. freezejeans - November 19, 2011

45

“Hate”? “Homophobic”? You are a real piece of work. So let me get this straight. ANY FORM OF CRITIQUE of someone who’s come out of the closet is AUTOMATICALLY HATEFUL AND HOMOPHOBIC according to you? Please do the country a favor and never vote again. You are a prime example of someone who is completely manipulated by emotion and lacks any form of critical thought.

And I say this as a person whose brother is gay, which I love very much.

67. Cosmo Kid - November 19, 2011

Quinto is gay but Spock ain’t, as far as I know him. Where’s Bones, dammit!

68. Green-Blooded-Bastard - November 19, 2011

Wow. For all the espousing of how much idealism Trek is all about and how Trek fans are a part of that culture, there sure is a lot of hypocrisy happening here. I’ve never read so much judgement of others in my life, and for nothing more than taking a few bad photos. How many of you look like supermodels? Post your pics and let’s tear YOU all apart.

Roddenberry would tell you to f**k yourselves.

69. MJ - November 19, 2011

@45. WTF? The guy takes horrid pictures time after time and looks uncomfortable and wears crappy ill-fitting suites…these are FACTS! And he is a great actor, which I said.

If you have an issue with his personal life, leave me out of it.

70. Keachick - rose pinenut - November 19, 2011

Re: the picture of Chris and Zach sitting at the table – in order to get them both in the photo, their knees knocked together apparently. Now, because of this knee knocking, I have been “reliably informed” that this can only mean one thing, that either the two guys have banged each other already or want to bang each other. You heard it here first! Real birds and bees stuff or could it be bird sh*t?

Talk of a Pinto bromance has now begun again…
Be prepared for more of the same over the next few months, as the actors get ready and the filming of the sequel begins on 15 January 2012.

71. Harry Ballz - November 19, 2011

68.

People in the public eye leave themselves open to comment. It’s as simple as that.

Oh, and Roddenberry? Yes, he was such a deep and spiritual person who NEVER judged a woman by her looks.

AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!

(wipes tear)

72. Keachick - rose pinenut - November 19, 2011

“crappy ill-fitting suites”

What – is that bathroom or lounge suites?
I will now suit up in my ill-fitting clothes so I can lie around on my crappy lounge suite.

Sorry – couldn’t resist. Could have something to with Pinto stuff I just read on another site. I will never see one time knee knocking the same way again…LOL

73. MJ - November 19, 2011

LOL !! You got me, Keachick!

74. MJ - November 20, 2011

@68. Good God Man, its a fracking hollywood photo shoot…of course a lot of people are going to comment on it. GROW UP!

You know, I think the basic problem with Qunito may be that he hasn’t learned to relishin himself as the 21st Century ubbergeek, like JJ Abrams or Steve Jobs do/did so successfully. Instead, Quinto thinks he a the cool cat “rat pack” kind of guy, like Pine, Clooney, etc.. But the guy is just not a cool dude like that — i.e. he’s not able to pull of the Rat Pack sort of look that I think he is aiming for. Geeks/thoughful guys are finally in, so he should embrace that and go with it instead of trying to be something that doesn’t fit well for him.

76. Harry Ballz - November 20, 2011

Yes, what you end up with is a Lounge Lizard Geek.

EEK!

77. MJ - November 20, 2011

Yea, and the poor guy can’t even get the “cool unshaven” look right..it is suppose to look like you haven’t shaved in 2 days, not 4 days. Look at Pine’s facial hair in comparison — Pine has it perfect.

78. Harry Ballz - November 20, 2011

I’ve heard of Perfect Pitch, never Perfect Pine.

Although I’m sure Keachick would concur with you!

79. Harry Ballz - November 20, 2011

Actors are always allowed to point at their ratty shit-looking beard and pronounce, “oh, this? i’m growing it out for a role!”

Everyone nods in acceptance, enabling the actor to go about his sloppy emotionally bent dishevelled life.

Nice slob if you can get it!

80. Keachick - rose pinenut - November 20, 2011

OMG. Harry – are you suggesting that my Pine is not perfect? I can’t think to write. He is not that fine young conifer growing straight, perfect and true after all. I can’t bear it…what to do. There is one thing – I need to seek out Michelle’s Chris Pine puffle and soak it with tears, unrelenting tears. How could you? What have I ever done to you, Harry? If he is not perfect Pine, then he can’t have perfect pitch either. I say again, what have ever done to you?

All that I have done – regale you of the wonders and beauties of the lovely Witherspoon chin, remind you of how Erica Durance is or is not a memorable and riveting character actress… Oh lord, help me here – but you must see what I mean, surely?

It seems that it is not only Bob Orci who needs to go puffle hunting now….sob,sob, sob!

81. Harry Ballz - November 20, 2011

Keachick, you sure know how to play dirty. Well done!

82. Harry Ballz - November 20, 2011

If I had Witherspoon’s chin at hand, I’d strike you with it!

83. Buzz Cagney - November 20, 2011

#67 i’m with you, where is Mr Urban? We watched RED last night (great movie and apparently RED:2 is in the works) and Karl was terrific in that.
I’m hoping for waaaaaaay more McCoy next time out. I know we all do.
I have a feeling we won’t be disappointed.

84. Keachick - rose pinenut - November 20, 2011

#75 – “Instead, Quinto thinks he’s a cool cat “rat pack” kind of guy, like Pine, Clooney, etc.. But the guy is just not a cool dude like that — i.e. he’s not able to pull of the Rat Pack sort of look that I think he is aiming for.”

What is the Rat Pack sort? I have just googled the Rat Pack and was surprised at what I read. It seemed many actors were big fans of Humphrey Bogart and his style on and off screen and on Bogart’s death (1957) the first Rat Pack group was formed in honour of Humphrey Bogart. This style is way too retro and, in a way, a little creepy.

I really do not like the combed back, gelled hair look. It looks horrible and after being reminded that this kind of look and clothing style goes back to the Rat Pack style, it causes me to dislike the look even more so. This really is a bad suit and bad hair day. Also the look is aging without necessarily bearing any signs of genuine maturity on the part of the person.

Please, Chris Pine, lose the hair gel, please!

85. Keachick - rose pinenut - November 20, 2011

I believe Mr Karl Urban could be in Marseilles, France working on a film called Overdrive. I think he should have finished his part by the time they start filming the Star Trek sequel.

86. Harry Ballz - November 20, 2011

Keachick, when it comes to attraction, you must ask yourself, do I give Pine wood?

87. Keachick - rose pinenut - November 20, 2011

Now, now, Harry!

88. MJ - November 20, 2011

Harry, perhaps Keachick would like to tour Pinewood studios someday?

89. Trekboi - November 20, 2011

91. Harry Ballz - November 20, 2011

Trekboi, the next time I display myself in Calvin Klein underwear on TV and print, you may have your say!

92. Keachick - rose pinenut - November 20, 2011

#88 – Well – maybe but I would prefer a tour around a Pine made of a different material to wood. I would have no objection if this Pine lay down beside me on a pine bed sofa…There are conifers and then there is that one special *conifer*.

93. Harry Ballz - November 20, 2011

And the next day, when asked, you would remark, “it was mighty pine!”

94. Buzz Cagney - November 20, 2011

96. Green-Blooded-Bastard - November 20, 2011

@ 71. Harry Ballz
You are correct, people in the public eye DO leave themselves open to comment. I choose not to comment. I would hope the Trek community would be as well. After all, we’re supposed to be “above” that.

The reason I invoked Roddenberry is because a lot of people on this site are constantly invoking his name in an effort to show how far above pettiness “Trekkers” are supposed to be, what with his advanced vision of the future in which people don’t judge based solely on looks.

@74. MJ
Not a bright one, are you. Ironic you use the work “frakking” then “grow up” in the same sentence, no? Typical. I’m the one that needs to grow up, so as to accept the fact that people making emotionally stunted comments at a “Hollywood photo shoot” don’t have to?

Incidentally, you don’t need to be in the public eye to be criticized for your looks. Post your picture.

@.99 MJ
Perhaps YOU don’t get it…

Before they are “Hollywood actors”, before they are in the “public eye”, regardless of what their jobs “require”, they are HUMAN BEINGS FIRST. FIRST! THIS is what you do not get, because you have the mental maturity of an 8 year old, the way you name-call and ridicule. They get the same amount of respect as you do, no matter their job. Judge lest ye be judged? Were you raised by gorillas?

You have a MASSIVE superiority complex, and I’m guessing a superego that’s a bit out of control as well, because you’re having a little trouble understanding the phrase hypocrite, despite using it so much. You dish it out, but don’t want it for yourself. i hope you aren’t raising your children like that (unless you simply couldn’t find anyone to procreate with you).

Unless you post your own pic and hold yourself up for the same scrutiny you are so fond of handing out (you’re rating beards, how hilarious. Mental midget), you are no more than a BASE COWARD. No matter what you say next, no matter what names you call me, no matter what pseudo-intellectual blather you spit next at your monitor, post your pic or you are nothing more than a BASE COWARD.

That, or a 280 pound acne-faced maggot afraid of showing people what you look like for fear of thunderous laughter and finger-pointing. Brings you back to your high school days, doesn’t it!

102. VulcanFilmCritic - November 20, 2011

I’m laughing my head off!!!

We have become so used to Photoshopped and heavily retouched photographs that appear in all of the “celebrity” media outlets, that when you get a real, raw photograph, we’re shocked…SHOCKED, by what the stars really look like.

Have you ever seen these people in real life, say up close at a convention, or on stage?

Well, Zachary Quinto really does have a large head compared to his thin legs and he has really bushy eyebrows. But that is nothing compared to the off-screen appearance of Leonard Nimoy in the 60′s. WOW! If someone looked as though he’d just rolled out of bed, it was Nimoy. AND this at a time when people didn’t even go to the gas station out of make-up. The media of the time charitably described him as “not looking like an actor.” Whatever that meant. What did he look like: a jazz musician? a locksmith? a hip science teacher? Moe from the three Stooges?

When I saw what he really looked like in TV guide, with, yes, a five o’clock shadow, mussed up (Spocky) hair, scraggly teeth and badly dressed in a plain black jacket and open collared shirt (NO TIE!) I was crushed that my hero was not as exotic looking as I’d expected. Even worse the article mentioned that he wore glasses. Nooooo!!! I walked around the house in a blue funk for three weeks before I could pick up TV Guide again. Ha!

I agree, these photographs are terrible. Part of the problem are digital cameras which tend to be biased towards the wide-angle shot. And with aggressive paparazzi shoving cameras right up into the star’s faces, no wonder they look uncomfortable, and even more wide-angled.
In order for a human face to look really attractive, you need a portrait (telephoto) lens and you need to STEP BACK. Don’t worry, on film, they’ll look fine.

I’m studying figure drawing and portrait painting in my spare time and I bought a collection of life masks of real stars: Tom Cruise, Patrick Stewart, Nimoy at two different ages, Christina Ricci, another beautiful starlet, Wesley Snipes, Peter Cushing, Christopher Lloyd, Sean Connery, Forrest Whitaker. Different ages, races, etc. for study. With the exception of Patrick Stewart who looks amazing, like a bust of a Roman senator, they are all incredibly average looking. Your co-workers look better that these people, and the stars make a living with their faces. What we see on the screen is what’s inside, or at least an incredible character that they can fake.

They don’t call it Tinseltown for nothing.

103. denny cranium - November 20, 2011

Other than ZS looking tired in the last shot they all look fine to me.
I’m surprised at how petty some of these comments are.
The young lady who posted about homophobic comments?
I didn’t see any such comments.
Strange how people pounce on a word or a phrase in a post and give it a whole new meaning.

Or maybe we’re all so frakkin’ tired of waiting for our movie to come out while watching Twilight geeks get a new fix every six weeks or so.

110. On Vacation With Landru - November 20, 2011

Seriously? Putting M or F because gender matters why exactly? It has never occurred to me to care what gender anyone commenting here identifies with.

Anyway, the problem with Saldana is likely the fact that she HAS the heavy makeup on. Heavy makeup cracks along natural lines emphasizing them which will make anyone look older and kind of hideous whether they are without makeup or not.

My guess is that the men all had work earlier in the day and did not want to bother trying to shave that miniscule amount of hair that had grown back by the time they had to go to this GQ thing. Pffft. I think they all look fine, but then again I know the difference between photoshop and reality. =D

111. VulcanFilmCritic - November 20, 2011

Oh my God, I just remembered!

Zoe Saldana just broke up with her long-term fiancee. No wonder she looks a little sad. The sparkle has just gone out of those great almond eyes.

Hey everyone, lay off her!

112. Buzz Cagney - November 20, 2011

I wish i was as ugly as this lot! lol

And, Bob O. if you are still out there, more McCoy in the next one?
Its what we all want, dammit! ;))

113. Iva - November 20, 2011

She’s in a new relationship already, what sadness are you talking about?

114. Chain of Command - November 20, 2011

Have any of you ever seen the cover art for the OLD Star Trek story albums? The one’s that came out in the 1970′s? Chris Pine looks almost identical to the artist depiction of Kirk. It’s uncanny.

115. Green-Blooded-Bastard - November 20, 2011

102. VulcanFilmCritic

EXACTLY man, exactly! Very well said. They look like people. This is what an unadulterated candid shot of a human being looks like, Hollywood star or not. There’s no make-up here, no hair-stylist, no lighting, no special soft lens (no lens flare lol), it’s just s snap-shot of people, and this is what people look like. What infantile, emotionally stunted tool makes fun of someone for their looks? I stopped doing that when I was 12 and realized I wasn’t so perfect myself.

No one goes to Hollywood to simply become a figure held up for ridicule based on their public appearance, or no one would go. It’s just a part of the natural phenomenon called adulation, and the simplest amongst us like to make snarky comments and make fun of someone having a “bad hair day”, or just getting a little more photographic truth than they ever thought they would get out of a picture. These same people read The Enquirer for it’s insight.

The reason most people develop into stars (acting abilities aside) is because under the right conditions (lights, makeup etc), they “look” like stars. They can sell their image. That doesn’t mean they will always look like that, just under those sets of condition. We’ve all seen the side-by-sides of Cameron Diaz and Pamela Anderson caught coming out of their homes to get something and they’re busted flat-footed with their morning-faces on, then given the treatment with a pic right next to them at their absolute very best. It’s a joke, because we ALL look like that in the morning, some of us all damn day no matter how much makeup you put on. Haha!

I don’t mean to preach or post soliloquies here, but nothing irks me more than someone giving someone else crap here for the same thing they’re guilty of themselves. It’s the HEIGHT of hypocrisy. Especially due to the fact that it’s directed at a picture on the internet, and not to the actors faces themselves, how cowardly. When i was a kid, if you had something to say about someone, you called them out into the street and said it to their face (granted spacial logistics being what they are these days it’s not so easy). And I might be off base a bit, but when I made the “Trekkers are better than this” comment, it was under the (apparently false) impression that because of all the commenting done in the past about The difference between Star Wars and Star Trek being that Trek is about the advanced ideals the future has to offer and the better days ahead of us as a species when such pettiness is a thing of the past, that Trek “fans” THEMSELVES were beyond that kind of garbage and were setting an example of who we could be as people if we only begin to respect one another as equals and that’s why we were Trek fans to start with, but it would appear as though I was terribly wrong.

@115 Green-Blooded-Bastard
Amen.
I am reminded of a Ray Bradbury short story about two actors, husband and wife, who were the plainest, most boring people imaginable. But when they were in a play, especially together, they lit up the stage with romantic passion, and they became the toast of the town.
I vaguely remember the plot but I don’t remember the name of the story.

Zoe is so cute in how she is and what interests her. I like her. I checked out her Twitter once and she was asking how her followers like to accessorize.

I was going to answer that I like to accessorize my black ski mask with a nickel plated .45, but then I thought, hmmm…better not to joke that way with a stranger.

121. Red Dead Ryan - November 20, 2011

#115.

Will you knock it off with your “holier-than-thou” Roddenberrry fundamentalist political correctness?! Sheesh! As some of us have already said, when you’re a public figure, male or female, you open yourself up to not only compliments, but criticisms as well.

This whole idea of compliments-only is extremely naive and reeks of fascism.

“Oh, god forbid we criticise an actor for what he’s wearing. Cause we might hurt his feelings.”

“Y’now, I don’t want to see Zachary Quinto cry so I’ll just say nice things about his clothing!”

We need to stop with the “everyone is beautiful in their own way” attitude if we expect to move forward as a society. Telling somebody they look great when they don’t sets them up for a massive, painful lesson in humility later on in life.

Many of us are NOT physically beautiful, some people are fat, some kids are stupid, and others never seem to find the right look for themselves.

It’s just the way it is. Some people are beautiful, some are plain-looking, and some are just butt-ugly.

Sometimes, judgements can be a good thing. Helps keep us all from developing an inflated opinion of ourselves and saves us from a lot of pain in the future when we realize we are all flawed human beings, both on the outside and on the inside.

“Star Trek” never really figured this out properly in my opinion. It was usually “everyone is beautiful in their own way, including the evil people”.

And hardly ever did we see any fat or ugly people on the show. Realistically, there would have been crew members who were a bit stocky, and women with sagging breasts and wide asses.

LEONARD MCCOY IS STAR TREK!!!

123. Buzz Cagney - November 20, 2011

lol like it, Vults. McCoy is just brilliant. I can’t wait to see Karl in the role again. Who’d have thought anybody but De could play the role?. Great casting by JJ and gang.

(btw the Sunday job in Sales is ticking along nicely enough. Hopefully, all things being equal, i’ll be leaving the Service Department and going into the Showroom full time in the New Year. Fingers crossed!)

124. Punkspocker - November 20, 2011

Wow. I used to work in fashion and both Quinto and Pine are extremely GQ. They are both stylish and mod. And SCRUFF is very hot. Any male model from Macy’s or H&M have scruff.

125. Vultan - November 20, 2011

#123

Yep. I look forward to seeing Urban’s McCoy again. Then again, I look forward to seeing all the actors in their roles again. I had some issues with the last movie, but the cast sure wasn’t one of them. They really knocked it out of the park!

Oh, and good luck with the job!

126. Dee - lvs moon' surface - November 20, 2011

72. Keachick….

You saw it on that site… It’s funny there’s always someone doing a tease there… So you reply and the comment disappears… It seems to be the same person using different aliases… It’s funny, at least I do not take things so seriously… And I’m not easy when I accepted a challenge… LOL…

And what about the guys from Star Trek I thought it was great to see them in the same event… Nobody will see me criticizing their outfit because I like them and do not repair the minor details… Zach looked great and Cho and Anton, too… Zoe is beautiful…

As for Chris… WOW… He was amazing… I thought it was great to see him so well after he left the SDB and there were all those nasty comments… And I agree with you he’s never been so good with the skin… I have no idea if it’s because of DP… LOL

I think unfortunately the TrekMovie did not publish the best photos of Chris in this event… I saw other photos in the gallery of THE CHRIS PINE NETWORK site where he is awesome despite the photographer… “baby blue eyes” was Gorgeous!…

:-) :-)

127. Dee - lvs moon' surface - November 20, 2011

CP autographs for fans when he came to the event, by the way…

I was talking about people using different nicknames…………………hmmmmm

:-) :-)

128. Buzz Cagney - November 20, 2011

Thanks for the Good luck wishes, Vults. Much appreciated.

The only actor that didn’t work for me was Simon Pegg. I like Simon well enough but, no matter the role, Simon is, well, Simon. This time he was Simon with a (pretty convincing) Scots accent. Some work to be done there next time out I think.

129. Keachick - rose pinenut - November 20, 2011

The photos of the guys (and Zoe) look fine. CP, ZQ, JC, AY looked great. They look the way they look. I did quote Kirk, from ST IV, “It’s his way” when referring to the photos takes.. This is just how ZQ looks and personally I do not find him totally unattractive nor that great either. He is OK!

The problem I have is more to do with what is considered fashionable today. The suit Pine was wearing was a designer suit, carrying a designer label with no doubt, a very high designer price attached to it. Yet it really did nothing for him. Similar could be said for the other suits actors were wearing and I suspect they may have come from the same designer.

Also, what I don’t like is the current fashion of men combing back hair and using heaps of gel. CP and ZQ’s hair looked a little wet and that was not because they had just washed it and were allowing it to dry naturally. It was an oily wet – sort of makes me want to puke. If only they did allow their washed hair to dry naturally – it might have looked nicer!

Five o’clock shadow stuff – the scruffy look – a fad, but not nearly as bad as the hair comb back/gel fad.

130. Vultan - November 20, 2011

#128

Oh yeah, I forgot all about Pegg. I think you’re right. His character did seem the furthest from the “classics.”

Of course, this is where I can make a joke about a square something-or-other fitting in a round hole, but I’m not gonna do it…

;)

It seems that CP has an agreement with the brand Ralph Lauren… I remember seeing a stylist talking about it recently, she had taken Chris and other actors for the brand… but unfortunately I do not have the website link…

Did you see the pictures of him arriving at the event?… I think he was looking very well that night… regardless of the clothes he was wearing I paid more attention to his mood…

Folks, this poster who made the above personal attack remarks accused me of name-calling and mentioned that I did not treat people of human beings. I think Green Blooded Bastard needs to practice what he preaches, and I would never resort to this level of mean-spirited name-calling on these boards.

A humorous side to this is that he was also trying to say that I didn’t understand the definition of hypocrite. LOL — look again at his above statements in contrast to his supposed call for treating people better…WHAT A FRAUD!

With the exception being that you can sling all the personal attacks here yourself and get a free pass. Your rule does not apply to yourself, but only replies to others, with you being the sole judge of what is acceptable and what it not acceptable…i.e. the Ayatollah of Trekmovie.com.

139. Keachick - rose pinenut - November 20, 2011

Unfortunately, most of us tend to think that certain rules only apply to others but not to themselves. I guess it takes a degree of self-awareness to be able to step back and see that perhaps, you are not always behaving that much differently from the people you are accusing.

I think everyone can be guilty of this behaviour. This guy who lived a while back commented on the same phenomenon with -

“Do not judge, so that you may not be judged. For with the judgment you make you will be judged, and the measure you give will be the measure you get. Why do you see the speck in your neighbor’s eye, but do not notice the log in your own eye? Or how can you say to your neighbor, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ while the log is in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your neighbor’s eye. (NRSV, Matthew 7:1-5)”

It seems some things never change…groan.

This may come from what many regard as a sacred religious text, but it is also good COMMON SENSE. I think it is better to listen to the message first before knocking down the messenger, if you get my meaning.

#134 Yes, I did see the other photos. He was signing autographs in one of the photos, too. It could be that he is just very excited to be able to finally play Captain Kirk again and being able to meet up with some of the other Trek cast members at a semi-formal occasion. I hope so.

I had seen Chris wearing Lauren caps and then there was that controversial Lauren key chain way back as well. I did suspect that he did some “modeling” for a clothing designer, obviously Polo Ralph Lauren, as in be seen wearing their latest designs and then keeping the outfits. After all, I doubt the suit would fit many others anyway. I hope he was able to keep the neat looking brown three-piece suit he wore in This Means War. Now that had style, unlike the one he wore on 17 November.

@139 “Unfortunately, most of us tend to think that certain rules only apply to others but not to themselves. I guess it takes a degree of self-awareness to be able to step back and see that perhaps, you are not always behaving that much differently from the people you are accusing.”

Well said, Keachick. And also, whether folks are religious or not, there is nothing wrong with quoting the good ole book’s solid wisdom!

142. K-7 - November 21, 2011

Wow, I counted 12 immature personal insults against MJ in GBB’s post. MJ, you really got his green blood boiling! All over making some comments over how some Hollywood types dress? What the fu*k was GBB getting so roiled over — MJ’s criticism of a stars suit and beard?

My goodness GBB, at least take on something meaningful if you are going to go all caveman on people. You just made a total ass out of yourself here in front of our whole community. Who gives a crap about comments about what the stars are wearing anyway?

143. Spock/Uhura Fan - November 21, 2011

I’m happy to see everyone looking like they had a nice time at their respective events.

As fantastic and already thin as he is, I do disagree with the person that said that Mr. Quinto won’t have to lose a few pounds to reprise Spock (and maybe Yelchin too a little). He looks absolutely fine in real life, but he does also look just a bit heaver than he was when he made the last film.

From what I have seen of Nimoy’s Spock, he always looked to be the same weight to me and never an ounce heavier. The timeline has changed, but not Spock’s metabolism. That’s the sucky part about playing the same role I guess, but I can’t wait to see him and the rest of them when it comes out.

My real hope is that Zachary has to hit the gym to tone up a bit for an upcoming Spock/Uhura love scene. Mmm, steamy, steamy. :)

Is that writer gentleman named Orci still here? Please say it is so. I don’t to be carrying this torch for nothing. ;-).

144. Dave S - November 21, 2011

Hopefully, they will start shooting before Chris’ hairline starts looking like his dad’s. Nothing against Robert …. great actor! :)

145. On Vacation With Landru - November 21, 2011

I think Wheaton’s Law covers it without having to bring religion into it.

147. Starfleet's Finest - November 21, 2011

Again, I came in WAY late, but I do get a good chuckle from reading all the comments (and what seems to be the inevitable verbal throw-downs).

The pictures are certainly not the best ones ever taken of these actors but I can tell you, they are CERTAINLY not the worst either. But, it always seems to suprise me the way people go after the way celebrities look. Ok, suprise isn’t the right word… Yes I do realize that they as celebrities put themselves out there and be judged one way or the other, but what I don’t understand is why some people think that these people won’t always look perfect. The key word here is “people”; and they are prone to their fair share of bad hair days, mismatch and ill fitting outfits, boredom, bad habits, and a plethora of other issues. Only making an observation, but honestly I thank my lucky stars I’m not in the public eye…god forbid what people would say about average looking people!

In my opinion, as far as Zachary Quinto’s expresson, honestly, that is almost a signature look for him. As an avid follower of the Zarmy, I’ve seen a LOT of pictures of him and the expression is a very natural one for him and for that matter, the suit fit is also a very signature look for him. Personally, it’s not one of my favorite looks, but it’s one I accept/expect; either you like it or you dont…clearly a lot of people do not :)

@45 amy

Homophobic?? Really? That was soooo 10 threads ago…relax…

@Keachick

I’m a female fan too! Woot! Power to the female Trekkers!

I love how every post you always got Pine’s back! Good on ya! Your posts always make me proud to be an obsessive fan! :D

148. Polly - November 21, 2011

Lol I’m enjoying some of the aguments on here more than actual article.

149. cd - November 21, 2011

In the Quinto/Pine picture http://img.trekmovie.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/11/gq11-1.jpg, Pine with the slicked back hair looks much more like Shatner’s TOS Kirk.

150. MJ - November 21, 2011

@142 “My goodness GBB, at least take on something meaningful if you are going to go all caveman on people. You just made a total ass out of yourself here in front of our whole community. Who gives a crap about comments about what the stars are wearing anyway?”

Well, I forgive the guy for his public meltdown. Time to move on to other topics.

151. MJ - November 21, 2011

@148 “Lol I’m enjoying some of the arguments on here more than actual article.”

Happy to be of service, Polly! :-)

152. NCM - November 21, 2011

Green Blood Bastard, I thought your attack on MJ was well executed and well deserved. I was tempted, myself… But MJ’s right, you out-performed him at his own game.

MJ; not trying to pick a fight:-{ I enjoy some of your post, but you often seem obsessively critical of certain others; so much so, I think you could make a sane person crazy.

153. K-7 - November 21, 2011

NCM, you must have missed something here that others have not? There is a general consensus here that The Bastard “lost it” and came across as a hypocrite.

And you claim that MJ said that The Bastard “outperformed him?” Where did MJ ever say that? Why would you make up a statement like that?

154. Red Dead Ryan - November 21, 2011

“The Bastard” was out of line on this thread. The kind of attitude he’s displayed was totally uncalled for. I think we should refer to Green Blooded Bastard as simply “The Bastard”. More appropriate, I think.

155. MJ - November 21, 2011

@153. Don’t worry guys, I can handle it. And I also forgive NCM for making up out of thin air that statement he tried to attribute to me. As Dr. McCoy once said: “It’s his revenge for all those arguments he lost.”

Again, I think it is time to move onto another topic.

156. PEB - November 21, 2011

wow…what is this site turning into? these werent shoots, they were pictures taken at a hollywood party (where I’m sure much drinking was taking place), and at an opening (Zoe just had a breakup so I think it’s okay if she doesnt look excited to take photos). It seemed like the pitchforks and torches came out when Anthony went MIA for a while but cant everybody just calm down a little? After every post there seems to be something really negative being said, I dont get it…

157. NCM - November 21, 2011

Didn’t know I was in an argument, but I’ll concede that my comment lacked clarity: I didn’t mean to suggest that MJ would credit GBB with a better performance (that was my take), but with using the same tactics GBB found objectionable.

MJ – glad to see you ‘can handle it.’ I suspected you could. Now, not that it matters much in a virtual community, but I’m a she.

Take care.

158. MJ - November 21, 2011

@157. OK, thanks for the clarification NCM.

New topic???

159. Spock/Uhura Fan - November 21, 2011

@ “New topic???”

Not sure what anybody’s into, but all those in favor of a shirtless Spock in the next movie please raise your hands. Mine are both waiving in the air. ;-)

160. Keachick - rose pinenut - November 21, 2011

#159 I have been suggesting scenes where we see Kirk, Spock and McCoy shirtless, especially Kirk! Mine are also waiving in the air.;-)

#145 Wheatons Law as opposed to what I quoted – really?

“During his keynote speech at the 2007 PAX (Penny Arcade Expo), Wheaton made a note about sportsmanship when playing games online. It has since become known as Wheaton’s Law, which states: “Don’t Be a Dick!”[37] This was intended to apply to life in general, not just online gaming.[38]

Wheaton’s Law Revised is an expansion by comics artist and writer Bill Willingham, which states: “Don’t be a dick, but it’s okay to play one on TV.”[39]” – Wheatons Law, Wikipedia.

A dick has a couple of meanings, both of them derogatory. Please do not confuse my quote about removing a “log” from one’s own eyes before attempting to remove a speck from another’s with this Wheatons Law nonsense. Not in the same ball park at all, not even close.

162. Keachick - rose pinenut - November 21, 2011

Sorry about the double posting. I had thought the first post had not gone through because the word “dick” had been quoted, so I re-wrote the post with what you see above.

163. Spock/Uhura Fan - November 21, 2011

@ Keachick #160

A shirtless 3 would be nice, and shirtless Kirk in the last movie was good too. I love them all, but alas, my affinity is for Mr. Spock (and the Spock/Uhura romance).

What can I say – Pale skin, pointy ears, and an attitude. Gets me every time. :-)

I imagine that’s how it is for you with Kirk. It’s nice that such lovely actors are in the film(s), eh? ;-)

164. MJ - November 21, 2011

@163 “Sorry about the double posting. I had thought the first post had not gone through because the word “dick” had been quoted, so I re-wrote the post with what you see above.”

I am timing the expected response from Harry Ballz on this one! :-))

165. Harry Ballz - November 21, 2011

Reminds me of when you call some guy a “dickless wonder”!

166. Red Dead Ryan - November 21, 2011

#165.

Don’t be a dick, Harry!

167. Keachick - rose pinenut - November 21, 2011

#163 – “It’s nice that such lovely actors are in the film(s), eh? ;-)”

You are so right. I had better whisper it to you, but I have a nice scene in my story where we get to see these guys shirtless in a very natural setting – they are either taking a dip in the pool or they are in a spa or sauna on the new space station.

It might be a stretch to think that even space stations advanced as the Federation/Starfleet ones would be able to accommodate recreational swimming, but it is one idea. I suspect, though, that having small spas or saunas could be possible. They would require less water.

168. Spock/Uhura Fan - November 22, 2011

@167

Well, there would be pools and saunas back at Star Fleet Command if in your story you find a way for the Enterprise to need to go back there for a while. Have fun writing. :)
