Zachary Quinto has been in the midst of 'Star Trek Into Darkness' promotion and in a new interview with Out Magazine, opens up about his friendship with Chris Pine.
Pine plays Captain Kirk in the Star Trek films, and Quinto plays Spock. In the films, they're not necessarily the best of friends, but Quinto assures us that that's not the case in real life. When asked about his friendship with Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto explains, "He is fiercely intelligent. He is endlessly curious about himself and the world around him. He is really compassionate. He is really reliable. Authentic. Loyal. Enormously talented..... And to watch what Chris has done with that has really inspired me. I’m grateful to be his friend."
He also talks about spending time with Chris outside of Star Trek filming and promotion, saying, "We actually have a lot of mutual friends. We have circle of friends that overlap, so we kind of knew each other before the movie a little bit. We met before we started shooting. There’s kind of six degrees of separation all around.....We travel in similar circles. But then we also make plans together as friends when we’re both in L.A. But when we’re both in L.A. has kind of been a rarity lately...."
'Star Trek Into Darkness' comes out on May 17th, 2013 and in addition to Pine and Quinto, stars Zoe Saldana, Simon Pegg, Alice Eve, Benedict Cumberbatch, Anton Yelchin, Karl Urban, John Cho, and Bruce Greenwood.
