In honor of it almost finally being time to see Star Trek: Into Darkness, I’ve been pulling together some outtakes from my Chris Pine interview to post over at Out.com. And then I found this in my phone from the day of the cover shoot (with the amazing Nino Muñoz).
It was just a test shot—and this is just a blurry snap of a computer screen—but it was an early indication that everyone was going to have a terrible time narrowing down the literally thousands of perfect shots of Chris to just a few for the magazine. (He has a kind of Matt Damon in The Talented Mr. Ripley thing going on here, don’t you agree?)
Here’s a slightly longer quote about the shoot than what made the magazine cut:
CHRIS PINE: I really liked the photographer [Nino Muñoz]. I liked the Avedonian vibe. I’m really way into the super contrasty black and white, how then it becomes purely about architecture of the shot. I liked especially the ones where he would frame me on the right and there’d be this swath of white, and I’m crouched down in the middle, from which you could kind of make out the details of my eyes and my arms.
More outtakes and extras to come all week. Hit my ask box with any questions and I’ll do my best to answer.
