Turning up on Wednesday night's Chelsea Lately, Star Trek Into Darkness star Zachary Quinto couldn't resist singing the praises of Beyoncé.

The actor recounted for Chelsea Handler how he was in London recently to promote the latest Trek adventure and was literally wowed after checking out Bey in concert on her Mrs. Carter Show World Tour.

"She earns every ounce of respect from me," Quinto said admiringly.

"Well you're gay," quipped the funnylady.

"It's true," the openly gay actor replied.

Zachary added that little did he realize however that as good a time as he had, his Star Trek cast mate Zoe Saldana did him one better, getting the full backstage VIP treatment.

"I didn't even know Zoe was there until after the fact," Quinto recalled. "I was like, 'Wasn't it amazing?' She was like, 'It was so amazing, it was so fun afterward going back and seeing Blue Ivy.' I was like, 'Oh, you had much more of a full experience than I did.' Cause I thought we just had the same experience." 

As his alter ego Spock would say, that's not logical.

Tune into Chelsea Lately weeknights at 11 p.m. on E!
