William Shatner Explains Why He's Never Watched an Episode of 'Star Trek'

William Shatner has revealed that he’s never seen an episode of his hit show Star Trek!

In a new interview, the 90-year-old actor said that he’s never watched an episode of the sci-fi series, which originally ran from 1966 to 1969. On the show, William played Captain James T. Kirk.

“I have never watched ‘Star Trek’,” William shared with People. “There are many episodes I don’t know, there are some movies I don’t know.”

However, William did say he watched the 1989 movie Star Trek V: The Final Frontier, but that’s only because he directed the movie.

“I directed one of the movies — No. 5 — I had to watch that one,” he said.

William then explained why he’s never watched any of his Star Trek performances.

“It’s all painful because I don’t like the way I look and what I do,” William added.

Earlier this week, fans sent heartfelt messages to William on social media in honor of his 90th birthday!

William Shatner & Wife Elizabeth Split After 18 Years of Marriage

William Shatner has filed for divorce from his wife Elizabeth after 18 years of marriage.

TMZ is reporting that a pre-nuptial agreement is in place between the 88-year-old actor and his 61-year-old ex, so the divorce should go smoothly. Neither will get spousal support, per the terms of the pre-nup. The site also reports that the split could soon be finalized by a judge.

The couple got married in 2001 and have no kids.

It has been a while since we’ve heard from William, and it’s been about a year since he publicly criticized this viral movement.

William Shatner Criticizes #MeToo Movement, Calls it 'Hysterical'

William Shatner is calling out the #MeToo Movement.

The 87-year-old actor shared in a new interview with DailyMailTV that he feels as though the movement is taking things out of “context.”

“But if you look back at things that were written and said 20, 30 years ago, it’s a different context,” William shared. “And you’ve got to judge it by that context. Rape and pillage, absolutely not, those are crimes against humanity. But saying ‘would you make love with me?’ and the opposing party says yes or no, I can’t fathom what’s wrong with that.”

William continued: “It’s like saying would you have dinner, would you like to write a song with me, would you do an interview? I’m not insulted by you asking me to do an interview. Maybe it’s my mindset based on the years I’ve lived, but I’m trying to be fair and I don’t see the problem.”

He did praise #MeToo for exposing hidden harassment in the entertainment business, but criticized the “firebrands” who are leading the movement and said they need to let “business-like people” take over.

“I’ve got three daughters and I’m glad that they have more opportunity,” William said. “At the same time, it’s become hysterical. It’s a whole new culture. The whole business has changed. The whole man-woman relationship has changed to a severe degree.”

After the interview went live, William started getting criticized on social media and he refused to back down from his comments.
