J.J. Abrams offers up 'Into Darkness' shower scene

"Star Trek Into Darkness" had mixed reviews, but there's one scene in particular that the sequel's creators are re-thinking.

At one point, Alice Eve's Dr. Carol Marcus is changing and appears in her bra and underwear, but without an explicit reason.

It was so random that MTV's Josh Horowitz pointedly ask co-writer Damon Lindelof about it. The scribe's response - that there's a very good answer, but he wasn't telling - didn't go over so well.

The 34-year-old covers the June issue of Allure magazine, which not only reveals a little skin but also the star's weight with the headline: "115 pounds of Grit and Heartache."

J.J. Abrams charts his 'Star Wars' path

Much like Luke Skywalker, director J.J. Abrams doesn't have much of a targeting computer when it comes to the Death Star-sized questions surrounding "Star Wars Episode VII."

"I don't know because we're just getting started," Abrams told Empire Magazine when asked about how he will take on the much anticipated sequel. "There are infinitely more questions than answers right now."

J.J. Abrams on 'Super 8' and readying more 'Trek'

J.J. Abrams may have made his name in television with series like "Alias," "Lost" and "Fringe," but he's had a succession of hits on the big screen. He delivered the most recent this past summer with the coming-of-age sci-fi film "Super 8," just released on DVD and Blu-ray.

Abrams told CNN that this was his most personal movie to date. "It was definitely very familiar to me as a kid growing up in that time making those movies," he said of the story, about a group of filmmakers in their early teens. "I loved the magic trick of moviemaking, the expression of it, whether it’s makeup or visual effects. There was something about doing it that felt like real life sort of paled in comparison."

Abrams considers himself "lucky" to have found such a talented young cast – including Joel Courtney and Elle Fanning – because they made the characters believable.
