It was an experience for him...
Before Chris Pine was a well-known movie star thanks to films like Star Trek and its sequel, he was trying to make his name in Hollywood and appeared in some lesser-known films. One of those films was Lindsay Lohan's 2006 romcom Just My Luck, for which she earned $7.5 million at just nineteen years old (she was just coming off the success of Mean Girls). Now, Pine says that it was an experience that taught him a lot about fame and what it can do to people.
Pine told THR of the production, which became known for one of Lohan's first tabloid-plagued productions, "It was a real cyclone of insanity, like being around The Beatles. It was fascinating to watch, and in hindsight it's really a distinct moment in someone's life when you see what's really wonderful about what we get to do and what's really dangerous about it."
He added that he learned a lot about the movie business, saying, "Hollywood is like living in a weird bubble. A bunch of people take care of you and get you stuff, and you're the center of that little microcosmic world. You start believing that it is real and … you deserve it."
Pine's new film Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit opens on January 17th.
