Bulked-up actor Chris Pine forced costume designers on the set of the new Star Trek sequel to make additional shirts for his turn as Captain Kirk because he kept dropping food on his outfit.

The slender star was required to pack on a few pounds to portray the iconic character for Star Trek Into Darkness and had to stuff his face with chicken and spinach to build muscle for the movie.

But he confesses the protein-heavy diet caused a problem for wardrobe staff because he would often make a mess.

He explains, "I put on 20 pounds, which was just constant, constant eating all the time... I just felt chunky. Sitting in that gold shirt and chair... I was eating so much that I would be going into a shot and I would inevitably drip something onto my shirt so they actually had to make more shirts.

The 32 year old has since regained his slimmer physique but insists it wasn't easy: "The weight is gone (now). It was (a problem losing the weight). I think something happens when you pass 30..."
