Hollywood actor Chris Pine has been disqualified from driving for six months after pleading guilty to drink-driving.

Pine, who is famous for his role as Captain James Kirk in Star Trek, was stopped during a routine drink-driving operation in New Zealand in the Canterbury town of Methven on March 1.

Yesterday in Ashburton District Court, he pleaded guilty to a charge of drink-driving and was disqualified from driving for six months.

He was also ordered to pay $NZ93 ($89.34) in costs but was spared a fine because he had already made a sizeable donation to charity Cure Kids.

Pine was swarmed by media and fans as he entered and exited the courthouse, and at one point stopped to sign an autograph.

The 33-year-old was caught drink-driving after attending an event at Methven's Blue Pub.

He has been in the country filming Z for Zachariah, a science- fiction film set after a nuclear war which also starring Aussie actress *Margot Robbie *.

The Blue Pub says Pine was attending a wrap party with about 80 actors and crew.

The party, which was not open to the public, finished about 3am and was described by pub staff as a "great night, not a wild party".
