"I'm afraid I have better things to do with my time than read that. If those people don’t have anything better to do, that’s their business, but I do."
Quinto spoke at Fan Expo Canada on Saturday, August 24, 2013, and clarified what he meant when he was asked again about Kirk/Spock fanfic (and possibly about RPS with Chris Pine too):
If you don't want to watch the vid, here's what he says:
"What happened in Ireland was I was giving an interview and somebody asked me about [fanfiction], and I said something that some people have misinterpreted as disrespectful, and so I would like to say here, for the record, that I mean no disrespect for people who either write or read fanfiction. I have absolutely no interest in it; it doesn't interest me. I understand how it interests other people; I respect their desire to be interested in it. I think both Kirk and Spock—and definitely me and Chris—are only good friends. Any suggestion otherwise has more to say about the person making the suggestion than it does about the characters."
