STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS Writer Damon Lindelof Apologises For Carol Marcus Underwear Scene
Screenwriter David Lindelof has issued an apology via his twitter page concerning the scantily clad appearance of Alice Eve's character in J.J. Abrams' Star Trek sequel. Hit the jump to find out why.
David Lindelof tweeted this apology via twitter after the backlash received from female viewers and fans of the series for reducing the character to a sexual object.
He also relayed the following statement via an email to MTV.
Why is Alice Eve in her underwear, gratuitously and unnecessarily, without any real effort made as to why in God's name she would undress in that circumstance? Well there's a very good answer for that. But I'm not telling you what it is. Because... uh... MYSTERY?
For those who may have missed it (if that's even possible) here's a snippet from the scene in question.
It's understandable that the scene is viewed by many as being entirely out of place, but how do you feel about it's inclusion in the movie? Does it warrant an apology? Let us know by sounding off in the comments!
