Acting is about letting go, says Chris Pine
New Delhi: Chris Pine, who played the bold, brash James T.Kirk in J.J.Abrams` sci-fi film ‘Star Trek’ in 2009, says an actor does well when he learns to let go. And he believes, he is yet to learn that.
Praising Pine`s talent, Abrams once said the actor can be very hard on himself.
To that, Pine said in a statement: "He is right. It can be very painful sometimes because if you are a perfectionist, and you believe there is the right way of doing something, you more often than not fail in that endeavour."
"And the best acting is all about letting go and I haven`t really quite gotten there yet. I think I am getting there - hopefully, knock on wood - but it`s very hard and it`s painful sometimes. In particular, watching myself (on screen) is a recipe for disaster. But if I can get lost in something that I am also in, then I know that we`re winning," he added.
Pine is delighted to reprise his role in its sequel "Star Trek Into Darkness".
"I love playing Kirk. I think he`s great fun. He is lustful for life, for experience, adventure, violence and romance. He is almost poetic in a way and I love him for that. What Kirk has in spades is a tremendous spirit of adventure," Pine said.
Born and raised in Los Angeles, Pine graduated from the University of California.
His early professional work included roles in several hit TV shows, including ‘ER’, ‘CSI: Miami’, ‘The Guardian’ and ‘Six Feet Under’.
The 32-year-old, who was part of ‘Smokin` Aces’, ‘This Means War’, ‘People Like Us’, ‘Unstoppable’ and ‘Rise of the Guardians’, recently completed filming the lead role in ‘Jack Ryan’, directed by Kenneth Branagh.
