Pine: Working with Lohan was insane

Chris Pine has described working with Lindsay Lohan as "a cyclone of insanity".

The Star Trek Into Darkness worked with the troubled star on 2006 rom com Just My Luck when the hype surrounding former child star Lindsay, then aged 18, was just beginning to send her on a downward spiral.

Chris revealed in a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter: "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."

The 33-year-old actor - who was a virtual unknown when working on the romcom - revealed the experience had taught him a valuable lesson.

He said: "Hollywood is like living in a weird bubble. A bunch of people take care of you and get you stuff, and you're the centre of that little microcosmic world. You start believing that it is real and... you deserve it."

Chris' parents Robert Pine and Gwynne Gilford are both actors, his grandmother Anne Gwynne was a Universal contract player and his older sister Katherine also dabbled in the industry.

Chris revealed: "There was nothing romantic about the industry. I grew up in a family where sometimes work was good, sometimes great, and sometimes there was no work. I learned a lot by osmosis, just by being around them."
