At last night’s GQ Gentlemen’s Ball in New York, Cosmopolitan.com caught up with Quinto and asked him to expand on that. His response was wonderful.
We loved your tweet in defense of Renée Zellweger today. What made you do that?
I don’t know. I thought [the Internet response] was completely bizarre and really aggressive, and it infiltrated the zeitgeist in such a powerful way in such a short amount of time — and she looks amazing, first of all. Second of all, she acknowledged her position, and I thought she did it in an intelligent and classy way. And third of all, so what? You know what I mean? Who’s not getting work done? Who’s not trying to bend to the unrealistic expectations of women when they’re young, let alone when they’re older? I thought she did it in a really bold and beautiful way. I think she looks amazing and if she’s happy, then shut the fuck up, everybody.

Alright, alright, bad news out of the way first. That whole ‘chances of an AHS appearance’ thing up there? The chances are not good.
I caught up with Zachary Quinto, Star Trek’s newest Spock and producer of The Chair on STARZ, at The New York Television Festival’s screening and panel for The Chair. And yeah, rough news Dr. Thredson fans.
“I have no plans, and I’ve had no conversations with them about returning,” Mr. Quinto told me. “For now I’m content to just be an audience member. I do think this new season is dynamic and bold but, yeah, I don’t think so.”
