George Takei Makes It Clear He Doesn’t Like William Shatner (VIDEO)


George Takei throws shade at William Shatner

“Star Trek” icon George Takei has made it apparent that there is no love lost between him and his co-star William Shatner.

Takei, who played Hikaru Sulu on the show, has been at odds with Shatner for years and took a chance to diss him during his appearance on “Real Time”.

George made an appearance on Bill Maher’s political show “Real Time”, saying that Shatner was too self-centered to even realize Takei was a homosexual.

Takei said, “My colleagues did know but they were cool about it because they knew that if I made a public statement about it or made it very obvious, then my career would be destroyed. But it just went right over his (Shatner) head. He was the only one that didn’t know.  At the end of the week we (would) have our wrap parties and they (cast and crew) bring their wives and husbands and boyfriends or girlfriends, and I quite regularly brought ‘a buddy’.”

Takei also said that Shatner was difficult to work with, adding, “Canadians have a certain image of being even-tempered and friendly and all that. Well, he is a person who is that way with himself. He is very self-centered. We work together and we’re professionals, so we get the work done, but it’s with a lot of difficulty.”

Maher told Takei, “Not like you’re gonna drive the ship into a Death Star to spite him”.

Takei replied joking, “The temptation [was] there at times”.
