Los Angeles - Chris Pine thinks Hollywood is a "weird bubble".

The Star Trek Into Darkness star, whose parents were both actors, is eager not to get caught up in the hype and thinks using social media to interact with his fans is a "waste of time".

The 33-year-old actor told The Hollywood Reporter: "Hollywood is like living in a weird bubble. A bunch of people take care of you and get you stuff, and you're the center of that little microcosmic world. You start believing that it is real and ... you deserve it."

He added: "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."

Asked if he would consider joining Twitter, Chris said: "Fuck no! What am I going to tweet about? My sneakers? Or, 'I have 140 000 friends on Facebook.' What does that even mean? I find it to be a waste of time. The internet is so caustic; just a place where people get to spew nonsense and bullshit."

Chris also discussed his former co-star Lindsay Lohan and how she opened his eyes to the pitfalls of fame after the starred in Just My Luck together in 2006.

He said: "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."
