Chris Pine worked with Lindsay Lohan on 2005’s Just My Luck… and it left quite an impression on the actor. “It was a real cyclone of insanity, like being around The Beatles,” he tells The Hollywood Reporter of his experience on the set with Lohan.

Pine adds, “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.”

What did he learn from those days?

“Hollywood is like living in a weird bubble,” explains the Star Trek leading man. “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… [that] you deserve it.”

Pine is protective of his privacy. He says that his love life is “something I don’t really want to talk about,” and hates paparazzi attention. “They f**king suck,” he tells the magazine. “The light of my flame was really bright after Star Trek [in 2009], and I had that bizarre convergence of everything’s so intense for about a month, and then it died down.”

Pine continues, “During that time, they’re f**king chasing you, and you’re driving at speeds you shouldn’t be driving at. Thankfully, I don’t really have much of that anymore.”

The star has no use for social media, either. “No, f**k no. What am I going to tweet about? My sneakers? Or, ‘I have 140,000 friends on Facebook.’ What does that even mean?” asks Pine. “I find it to be a waste of time. The Internet is so caustic; just a place where people get to spew nonsense and bullsh*t.”
