You're probably not sorry that you saw in her underwear in Star Trek Into Darkness, but writer and producer is. He recently took to Twitter to respond to suggestions the blink-and-you'll-miss-it scene was gratuitous. He tweeted:
I copped to the fact that we should have done a better job of not being gratuitous in our representation of a barely clothed actress.— Damon Lindelof (@DamonLindelof) May 20, 2013
We also had Kirk shirtless in underpants in both movies.Do not want to make light of something that some construe as mysogenistic.— Damon Lindelof (@DamonLindelof) May 20, 2013
What I'm saying is I hear you, I take responsibility and will be more mindful in the future.— Damon Lindelof (@DamonLindelof) May 20, 2013
Also, I need to learn how to spell "misogynistic."— Damon Lindelof (@DamonLindelof) May 20, 2013
I'm pretty sure the scene only existed to sell tickets. Sure, explosions and spaceships get young guys into theaters, but nothing does it better than a pair of mammary glands.
Ultimately, Lindelof's apology is quite warming. Firstly, it shows that some people in Hollywood can accept criticism in good grace, and secondly it shows even award winning writers occasionally make spelling mistakes.
