Chris Pine arrived here and had his girlfriend [Iris Bjork Johannesdottir] with him and he spent most of his time with her — she flew in that day someone told me,” bar manager Casey Crawford told the Herald.

According to sources, Chris is scheduled to attend Ashburton district court on Monday (March 17) for the drunk driving charge.

Celebrities drinking and driving is especially annoying to me because they can certainly afford a cab.

Not surprised because his girlfriend is also a bloody drunk as well. Hmm..Chris, are you picking up Íris’ bad habits as well??

I agree with you @commonsense.

Chris Pine is an idiot. He’s in NZ. He abides by NZ drinking laws. There were drivers provided. Wonder why he didn’t use them?? It does matter how many people get caught drinking and driving, what’s wrong is wrong. Dumb stupid excuses some of his fans make!
When did that cheap nobody become a “Supermodel” ? LOL

# 6

Now they both have arrest records!
He for drink driving and she for domestic battery!
Great pair. They should get married.

# 7

Man, this news got here fast! Bet it wasn’t Pine’s PR who sent it!!
So this happened on March 1st? Oh my, how they can keep things hidden when they want to eh?

# 8

They say shes gone to Iceland to protect from the media! If so IBJ is going to be around a long time. Chris is a big boy and he should use his head. Do not blame her. Chris is 33yrs old and should know better he did not even have to pay for a cab because drivers were provided. No excuse at all

I know it is not smart but things happen we all make mistakes no one is perfect and he is not the first person or celeb to get court iam pretty sure he feels bad about it and hey maybe same people can look at it and say i will not do this or do it again the only thing he will proberly get is a fine and warning and that is enough knowone was hurt thankfully i also think people get upset when it is a person that has not been in trouble before than sameone that gets into trouble alot id be harder on them than sameone who makes one mistake have u not i bet u same of have been court either speeding or even talking on your phone while driving which is worse than drink driving

She’s gone to Iceland?? I thought she would be around to support her boyfriend? Isn’t that what a normal gf would do? And isn’t it odd that she arrived the day of the party? Why wasn’t she there during filming? Not as if she’s working or has anything else to do? Weird.

Trying to create an interest that doesn’t exist for that girl? No one cares who she is and no one would follow her.


Silly, just trying to create artificial interest for a nobody. No one cares and no one would follow her.Ridiculous.

I do agree with that if that was me i would not leave him but hey thats her i hope he leaves her and finds a good girl but just saying anyone think the cops new they where pulling up captain kirk just saying

I doubt anyone is blaming IBJ for Pine’s DUI.
I wonder why he didn’t use the drivers offered by the pub? Maybe he had to drop IBJ off at her place before he went home and THAT would have been embarrassing. Can’t have the gossip spread by the driver right? Whole purpose of getting her to the party lost!
Btw he probably got drunk cos he had to spend the whole evening with her! Ah, the cost of keeping up pretenses!

@Yasmin May I ask where you heard that IBJ is gone back to Iceland, I’m always curious how people find out these little things? :)

Agree. It’s been a bad year for CP so far. Jack Ryan was not a big hit like at all. “Stretch” unreleased. “Line” director saying he only spoke to CP on the phone. His gf comes up with an arrest record, his romantic vacation in Paris laughed at as a “mini movie” now a DUI associated with Z for Zachariah. sheesh!

I’m sitting here thinking how the hell a dead man gets pulled over for drunk driving. And then I thought oh maybe this was before his death but then I was like no it’s march. I clearly need to go back to bed because I just mistook Chris Pine for Paul Walker.

I’m sure his ever loving boy friend is there to console him!

Chris Pine is very generic looking. He gets mistaken for a lot of actors. Poor Chris!

MUST they keep saying “Star Trek Actor” and “Capt Kirk” in all the articles relating to this? Paramount & Trek fans must be sooooo happy. :(

“He said Mr Pine and other cast and crew were “subdued” throughout the night, …”
Told ya. It was the strain of having IBJ there, that did him in!

if she was sent to iceland, it is because he and his team do not trust her. simple, she likes the attention too much.

ALL Chris Pine’s girlfriends want too much attention non? wonder why?

No excuse for this. What a dumba**.

Just reading same of your comments and just thinking that maybe she is the one who let this out becouse whoelse but her his pr are not the police cant they cant even release his name and the pub manager seems to have herd about it much later so it only leaves her this should never have gotten out he should be able to deal with this in private and not for any one else to judge she diffenantly needs to go
