Chris Pine pleads guilty to DUI, loses his license

As you may recall, Chris Pine got in some serious shit in New Zealand last week after he was arrested for driving drunk. On a positive note, he actually owned up to it – though it did cost him his license… his New Zealand license, that is. He only had to pay a $93 fine (that’s about $79 in USD) and his NZ license will be reinstated in six months, according to the trial of Ashburton District Court.

From People:

Pine stood silently during the hearing, allowing his lawyer, Marilyn Gilchrist to enter the plea.

According to Fairfax, Gilchrist told the judge that Pine acknowledged he’d made the wrong decision to drive that night. Gilchrist said her client had suffered emotionally and professionally and that the negative publicity had put his acting contracts in jeopardy.

The judge said she accepted Pine was “entirely remorseful,” Fairfax reported.

Hopefully he learned his lesson this time. He was certainly let off easy – with his punishment and with the fact that he was lucky enough not to have killed anyone, which happens all too often with DUIs. Also, you’re rich, dude. Call a cab.

Chris Pine Got Arrested for DUI

What the hell is with these dumb ass celebrities and their love of getting behind the wheel of a car when they’ve been drinking? Honestly, I’d love if someone could tell me the logic behind this one.

Chris Pine is the latest on the long list of DUI assholes (because seriously, driving while drunk automatically makes you an asshole), and he was arrested for it in New Zealand this week.

From TMZ:

 Chris Pine was popped for DUI after blowing through a sobriety checkpoint and then allegedly blowing a .08.

Pine had been partying at a bar in New Zealand with some fellow actors and his girlfriend, beauty queen Iris Bjork Johannesdottir.

Law enforcement tells TMZ … he caught their eye after driving through the check point.  Officers then made him stop and Chris reportedly blew a .08 … the minimum for being legally drunk.

The incident occurred on March 1st.  He must appear in court on Monday, and if he doesn’t the judge will issue an arrest warrant.

Chris was his usual charming self … very polite and “easy to deal with.”

Well, isn’t that sweet that he was “polite” after blowing through a sobriety checkpoint and then being apprehended for doing something illegal. What a modern gent!

I don’t know Chris Pine much – I don’t follow his work or know anything about him other than the fact that he cries all the time and thinks Lindsay Lohan could still make a comeback, but I have no tolerance for shit like this, especially when the illegal shit you’re doing could potentially KILL somebody.

Chris Pine Thinks Lindsay Lohan Can Make A Comeback


Chris Pine worked with Lindsay Lohan way back in 2006, her best years. They did the utterly “meh” Just My Luck together. He still believes in her and that she can make a comeback. Here’s what he told Cosmopolitan, via Gossip Cop:

Our business loves comeback stories. From Drew Barrymore to Robert Downey Jr., there’s a long list of people who have faced their troubles, wildly overcome them, and succeeded. If anyone can do that, it’s Lindsay

Okay, Imma need everyone to stop comparing Lindsay Lohan to RDJ Jr., because he has actual, good, consistent talent. So let’s stop that. Now.

If Lohan doesn’t screw up her sweet Oprah gig, she may have a chance at a real comeback, because we all know The Canyons didn’t do that for her. Also, she’s gotta stop behavior like this.

What do you think? Can Lohan comeback?
