Chris Pine Admits He's Both Competitive in Nature & a Perfectionist
Here’s what the 34-year-old actor had to share with the mag:
On Horrible Bosses 2: “It’s ridiculous. I think it’s really funny. I think it’s better than the first. The guys were so good-their attention to detail, these three guys, is incredible. Their timing is great. To be around that kind of comedy just offers you a sh*t-ton of freedom. It’s like, as specific as they are, they’re creating the world in which they work. Once they got that down, it’s a f*ckin’ free-for-all.”
On being considered a perfectionist: “We are creatures of…generational trauma. And I loved the idea of that, is that-I’m not just alone here right now. I’m a product of my parents, who were brought up by their parents, who were brought up by their parents. If my great-great-great-grandfather was an abusive alcoholic-that trauma-or if he was an abusive narcissist-all that kind of just relays its way down the line…to where you are sitting right now. So you learn certain things, you’re brought up in certain ways. And that’s one thing that I definitely have.”
On letting go of feeling competitive: “Because who’s it all for, then? I win and then what? It’s like eating cotton candy-you eat it and you’re, who’s f*ckin’ next? It’s aggressive. So I’m still figuring it all out, but I think, for me, it’s finding the joy again.”
