Seriously, he signed autographs?

# 2

Hardly a “mob scene” JJ and his BAC was .13!!
How did he not know he was drunk?

Beards are soo....handy? @ 03/16/2014 at 8:36 pm

“Fans outside court took photographs of Pine and one reached out to stroke his beard as he came out of the court.”
LOL I didn’t know Iris was in court!! (just kidding!)

I thought he was in the US and his people were being sent to deal with the court day? Or that’s what the wise conspiracy theorist here told me? You know, the ones that go on and on about his girlfriend and so on…

When asked whether it mattered that he was in court for a bad thing, she said: “No, he’s really nice, so it’s okay.”
Uh, so if he was “not nice” then it becomes a bad thing??

Ashburton District Court is in Ashburton, not in Christchurch. Ashburton is a separate town!

@Lynn:

That’s “Icelandic” girlfriend, not just an ordinary girlfriend. Don’t let all of that PR work go to waste.

In his head, “I’m still famous!”. Always remember drink and drive is never cool.

Go back and read my comments again. Especially #85. CP can attend court if he wants to. No one is going to prevent him from doing that. Then there is the possibility that it was compulsory for him to attend as his BAC was so high. No one knew what his BAC was till now. His fans kinda fostered the idea it was just marginally above and he wasn’t really drunk!

#9 was for Lynn

@Zee: my bad! It’s hard to keep track.

I bet this is somehow a publicity stunt to make him seem straight and hide the fact that he is so far in the closet he’s in Narnia and in a relationship with Zachary Quinto, who also has a fake boyfriend. Right?

@Lynn:
Wow! you have the weirdest conspiracy theories!!
“Narnia” hm? that’s interesting….

Now he’s a superstar !

I doubt it will affect him much in the long run. Many other celebrities have had DUI in their careers and their image hasn’t suffered.

If anything ends up killing his career is the awful career choices he’s made picking up his movie roles. I really wonder if he is just terrible at picking roles or if he just isn’t getting offered any good roles.

Most other actors that he’s compared to have either worked with really good directors or have been in a good number of movies that do well at the box office, yet most of his efforts outside of Star Trek have flopped at the box office and with critics. Which is too bad because I think he has a lot of potential…

Got it in one! rofl

We only had been told his limit was just over becouse it had yet to come to court and anything said may affect the case it does not matter now its over he has payed his doos and that should be it and as for his career he has same good movies coming out and then another star trek the roll of a life time will come his way one day iam sure of it as for the gay romores it is really getting old like come on you people need to get of that horse a long time ago if he where guy i think it would of being made public by now like think about it and i think people like you guys have named every actor celeb and who ever else gay so it is getting very old come up with samething else that is not ture

Didn’t someone from the set tweet (2/28) that Chris had “Just cut all his hair off in a rad do”? Another lie? wtf srsly?

@Hey Lynn: YAY! It ain’t easy keeping up with the tinhatters here. It’s like a more hostile version of Tumblr.

Yeah but you are here hon, so you must love us better? :))))

@??!!:
Ever since our Piney gotta that new rad hair cut? no one seen it. Piney always wear a cap! Why?
Answer: Because there weren’t no new hair cut!

Apparently Pine kept calm during the proceedings his fans say…..
Why did they expect something like this:
http://ssk-analogmedium.tumblr.com/post/42979840483/314-whom-gods-destroy-01-09-by-mr-scradam

uh, it should read “Why? did they expect something like this”

@Hey Lynn: Of course. Why do you think I keep coming? It’s very entertaining!

Much better to read conspiracy theories about celebrities’ sex lives than those nuts tinhatting about how vaccines are evil and someone’s trying to steal their guns.

In 2009 I probably would have been like some Pinenuts, whining about people being mean to Chris and so on, but now it’s just entertaining. It’s weird being defensive over someone you don’t know. Also, he deserves any criticism he’s gotten for driving under the influence. I have no intention to defend someone, even if I like them, when they put other people’s lives at risk while doing something to careless. Period.

@hmmm: i just looked at that and that is soooo funny and people just think up cazey things for celebs i dont see him like what other people put him as and untill i see that for myself i will always like him for the person he is but seriously very funny got anymore

@Lynn:

Fake boyfriend? Have you seen ZQ’s boyfriend? Why would anything be fake when someone looks like Miles?
