24 Hours: Chris Pine

The Unstoppable star—and new Captain Kirk—mulls his last day.  

So how do you want to go?


Do you have any deathbed confessions as you face the “final frontier”?

I’m an avid procrastinator.

Where will you be going, heaven or hell?

I’ll steam downstairs and do the cold plunge upstairs.

The train conductor you play in Unstoppable gets into some pretty dangerous situations. Have you ever had any near-death experiences in your own

line of work?

Tripping while eating my breakfast burrito on the way to the makeup trailer.

Between you and your costar Denzel Washington, who would more likely be able to save a town from a lethal disaster without dying in the process?

Dunno. But he just may be able to beat me in an act-off.

Who would you rather kick it with in the afterlife, Denzel or Spock?

Denzel. Playing Spock.

James T. Kirk was a reckless man. What’s the biggest trouble you’ve gotten into during your lifetime?

Tough call…but I’m betting a lady was involved.

You’ve had the good fortune to romance some very lovely ladies on-screen (Anne Hathaway, Lindsay Lohan, Rosario Dawson). Any one in particular you’d like to be stranded in a wormhole with?

Can’t I have a wormhole harem?

What are Trekkies saying over your casket?

“I never thought Bill would do it.”

You have a college degree in English. What literary quote would you like on your tombstone?

Fuckin’ Ruthie, fuckin’ Ruthie, fuckin’ Ruthie, fuckin’ Ruthie…”

Unstoppable rolls into theaters November 12.
