The Star Trek actor also spoke about whether online dating has hindered (or worse yet, replaced) chivalry.
"I have a couple of buddies who use Tinder. Whatever eases the process is great, since it can be awkward and uncomfortable meeting someone," he explained to the magazine.

Pine was also asked about how it was working with Lindsay Lohan in the past, on Just My Luck.
"She's had a rough go of it. I'm sure the trials and tribulations that she's been through have taught her plenty."
He added, "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."
