Star Trek Jumpsuit Left Stewart In Pain
British thespian PATRICK STEWART prompted STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION bosses to rethink the show's wardrobe when he threatened to sue them for spinal damage.
The star played Capt. Jean-Luc Picard on the cult sci-fi series from the late 1980s and into the 1990s and now he reveals the skintight Lycra jumpsuit he wore on the show didn't fit him for two whole seasons.
Stewart tells the Globe, "The producers wanted to have a smooth, unwrinkled look, which put a terrible amount of strain on my shoulders, neck and back."
The actor admits his one-size too small outfit eventually sent him to the chiropractor, who advised the star to sue.
Stewart admits the Star Trek producers quickly revamped his outfit when they heard the legal threats.
