LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Mila Kunis may have turned into a bombshell film star, but she is a geek at heart.
“I’m a massive Trekkie,” Mila told GQ’s August 2011 issue, after being asked about working with William Shatner in the film, “American Psycho 2,” in 2002.
“That was crazy,” she added of the experience. “He’s exactly what you think he is.”
As for that “Star Trek” obsession, Mila said she’s been a fan for years.
“I got into it in my late teens — 18, 19, 20. Something like that. I got into it later than most people. But let’s not talk about it in the past tense. I’m still a ‘Star Trek’ fan. You never stop being one,” she said.
While she may not use the now-accepted fan-approved word for “Star Trek” fans – “Trekkers” – she did admit to visiting a locale dedicated to memorabilia from the show.
“I went to the Star Trek Experience in Vegas maybe five years ago. I hung out with a bunch of fake characters inside Quark’s bar,” she told the mag. “There were all these actors there pretending to be the different characters from the different shows. Yes, I loved it.”
Beyond the visit to the franchise-related destination, Mila added that she has Leonard Nimoy’s autograph.
“Friends with Benefits” opens July 22.
