Chris Pine has a greying beard & no girlfriend: would you hit it?

Here are some photos of the cast of Star Trek Into Darkness (minus Benedict Cumberbatch) at a photocall in Germany over the weekend. I can’t believe I’m actually going to say this, but Simon Pegg looks really hot here AND Chris Pine is making me do a double-take. While I like Pegg in general, I’m never hot for him, so this is a new experience for me. As for Chris… I learned to disregard him years ago, when he dated Audrina Patridge and… do I really need to say more? But I think it’s the greying beard. The beard gives him a new and interesting look. And I’m into it.

As it turns out, Chris is going to be doing the STID press tour solo – Us Weekly reported on Friday that Chris and his girlfriend Dominique Piek have split. Which should be news to all of us who didn’t even realize he was in a relationship.

Chris Pine and Dominique Piek’s romance has come to an end, multiple sources confirm to Us Weekly. “It happened a while ago,” a source says. The Star Trek Into Darkness actor, 32, and the Sports Illustrated model, 27, made their red carpet debut as a couple at the Cannes Film Festival in May 2012.

“It was a mutual call,” another insider says of their breakup. “They both needed their space. She has been very busy with her modeling work and traveling. He’s got Star Trek and his other projects keeping him busy.”

Pine — whose exes include Olivia Munn and Audrina Patridge — began romancing the South African stunner in the fall of 2011. Prior to dating the actor, Piek was linked to professional baseball player C.J. Wilson.

Now that they’re both single, the exes are focusing on their careers. “It’s hard for two people at their age and on their level,” a source tells Us. “They’ll both be just fine, though.” E! News was the first to report the couple’s split.

I remember, years ago, reading a profile of Chris in some magazine and his managers and agents were complaining about how Chris always wanted to be set up with an endless series of bimbos, reality stars and famewhores (my words, not theirs). Like, he doesn’t ask his friends to set him up with friends of friends or anything like that. He wants his management team to set him up with fame-hungry young things who want to date someone famous. I wonder if he’s still like that? I wonder if his management team finally sat him down that told him that he could actually date ladies from a more elite pool of Hollywood women?

PS… Am I the only one who doesn’t “get” why Alice Eve is a thing?

    Sigh….I love Zachary Quinto.

  2. Agnes says:

    on a slow tuesday night, maybe.

  3. Mia 4S says:

    Wow whatever they’ve done to Pine…keep doing it!

    Simon Pegg and the lovely Quinto could also get it. ;-)

  4. valleymiss says:

    Maybe this is just me dating myself, but I can’t look at Chris Pine without thinking of his dad, Robert Pine, who I used to watch every week on CHiPs. (He was the captain.) And then that sends me down a Larry Wilcox rabbit hole (I was never an Erik Estrada fan cuz his overly white teeth freaked me out.)

  5. Lilo says:

    I’d hit that. And Quinto too, if he wasn’t gay. Sigh.

  6. pretty says:

    wow people in this photo all have huge foreheads.

  7. T.Fanty says:

    Oh, Kaiser… I’ll share Cumby, and maybe even muster a little fake enthusiasm for it. But, I will roll up my sleeves and throw down for my darling little Peggster.

    Also: I’d hit them all, but only until He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named arrives with His.Glass.Dungeon.And.Leaf.Blower.

  8. Steeze says:

    Is it just me or did the blonde one not get the memo about the color choices for wardrobe. How gauche.

  9. The Original Mia says:

    I love Capt Fine! Dude could get it.

    Not sure why Alice Eve is anything.

  10. Susie Q says:

    Don’t know if it’s true or not but I read Chris’ girlfriend just broke up with him because she didn’t want to be dating him when he came out..

    • andy says:

      That came from CDAN. Pine’s picture was in the DM the same day. A celeb appears in the DM and sometimes he writes a blind about them. His followers even look at the DM online to help w/their guesses.

      Enty does that all the time, and people still believe him.

  11. GoodCapon says:

    I know Chris and Zachary would get all the attention here, so I’m reserving all my love today for Simon Pegg :D

    Zoe looks cute too!

  12. magpie says:

    Maybe the beard and 3-piece suit is an attempt to look more intelligent, but he blew it when he dated “ceiling eyes” Patridge. So no, never.

  13. Bourgie says:

    I love Simon to bits, but PLEASE never wear those jeans again!

  14. Lucy says:

    I don’t get why Zoe Saldana is a thing

    • Meredith says:

      Alice Eve is not my idea of “a thing” but she was fabulous in “She’s Out of His League” as a beauty who goes down market (so to speak) to find a really nice guy who adores her. But I do not like her hair here – it makes her unrecognizable.

  15. elceibeno08 says:

    Oh my God yes. Chris Pine is so handsome. That huge forehead makes him look distinguished. Years ago there was this rumor that he is nicely endowed although there is no proof of it. In conclusion: Chris Pine is a very handsome man who will still be hot when he is older.

  16. Apples says:

    Chris Pine: Yes, I’d hit it…and I would make him whisper vocab words in my ear.

  17. madpoe says:

    YaH! I think Simon Pegg has always been kinda cute. He looks hot here! lol.

  18. JenD says:

    He’s got sexy eyes, so he’s always been nice to look at. But the beard makes it nicer.

  19. lori says:

    Olivia Munn too…….He seems to like fame hungry tarts….but even they bore of him quickly.

  20. Pixie says:

    Yes. Yes. A million times Yes.
    And I’d throw Zachary Quinto in there too, just for good measure.

  21. Joanna says:

    Blondie looks like Mena Suvari.

  22. Jen says:

    Chris Pine’s Franken- head doesn’t work for me.

  23. Rabia says:

    No thanks. Besides, I thought he was gay?

    Anyway, Zoe looks really cute here. Love her style.

  24. Jen says:

    Chris Pine’s Franken-head doesn’t work for me.

  25. epiphany says:

    Now, there’s a flip side to that question; would Chris Pine WANT us to hit it? Or, would he rather prefer to meet our cute friend, Brian?

    • Emma - the JP Lover says:

      @Epiphany, who wrote: “Now, there’s a flip side to that question; would Chris Pine WANT us to hit it? Or, would he rather prefer to meet our cute friend, Brian?”

      (Blinks) Did I miss the ‘Chris Pine is gay’ rumors? Not that it would change my Pine lust … er, love … one bit, but spill, girl, spill! Give me the details. :)

      • Mia 4S says:

        I’ve never seen any that even approach likely. Sadly I have seen people (and that crazydaysandnights thing mentioned above) with the gross attitude that because he’s buddies with Zachary Quinto he must automatically be gay too. He had the nerve to continue being adorable and friendly with Zach even after Zach came out. Shocking of course because gay men and straight men cannot be friends! ;-) Again how is some totally top secret gay nonsense gossip better than an actual prominent friendship between a gay actor and a straight actor? Help me out here?

      • Emma - the JP Lover says:

        @Mia 4S …

        Well, they certainly proclaim Chris Pine straight (or as they said, a huge ‘P’ Hound) at an extremely popular gay website.

  26. j.eyre says:

    I think everyone in this photo would work for me – except maybe the blonde, I am having problem with her hair and shoes. Zoe’s outfit leaves something to be desired but she is so pretty.

    Ah, I liked Chris Pine so much in Bottle Shock. But the one deleted scene on the Star Trek blooper reel between him and Zachary (“I love harh!”) has earned them a little piece of my heart forever.

  27. Apples says:

    More Cho please, Celebitchy!

  28. Jenna says:

    I STILL don’t know who Alice Eve is. That being said, since my hubby (Karl Urban) isn’t there I wouldn’t hit any of them. -sigh-

  29. Miss Kiki says:

    I have so much love for Zachary Quinto.

    When it come to Chris I’m a fickle bitch, one minute I’m totally into him then next I remember that he has weird lips and I get freaked out.

    Simon Pegg is looking delightful as always.

    I second the calls for more Cho.

  30. Crumpets and Crotchshots says:

    Do management teams really play matchmaker like that? These people really do live in a rarified world.

    Simon Pegg: I adore him, though I agree I wouldn’t describe him as “hot” per se. What he lacks in hotness though, he makes up for with the best personality and sense of humor ever. He gives affable new meaning. There isn’t enough of that in the world.

    Plus, he tweeted me once, and for that I will always wag my tail when he is in anything. I know that sounds silly, but I was surrounded by gunfire in Boston, and it was a really sweet gesture.

    • Mira says:

      Sure they do. It’s like another version of friends setting up friends. A lot of these celebrities are also friends with people in their management because they spend a lot of time together. I think the word management makes it all seem like one elaborate scheme. I know a lot of people here freak out about Cruise auditioning for wives. I think that’s also just another way of setting up. Only his management is the Sci church. The only difference perhaps is that they can ask for who they want to be set up with because of the access.

      • Crumpets and Crotchshots says:

        But it really does sound like ordering from a catalog– my friends might fix me up with their friends, but it’s not like I am saying “I need a dark haired lawyer-type for this Saturday.” My take anyway. Maybe it is just the way she put it and they are all just friends who happen to be modelizers.

    • orion70 says:

      Simon Pegg gave of a pretty hot vibe for me in Hot Fuzz. Maybe it was the uniform.

    • Emma - the JP Lover says:

      @Crumpets and Crotchshots, who wrote: “Do management teams really play matchmaker like that? These people really do live in a rarified world.”

      Have we all forgotten that’s how Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt got together?

    • T.Fanty says:

      *eyeroll* I was waiting for you to bring that up. Smug.

  31. Reece says:

    Yes for all three but with varying degrees of affection. Pine would have to be a ONS unless there’s more behind the beard.

    Annoying Screaming Blonde from trailer must be damn pivotal to plot and not just Kirk’s sidepiece cuz seriously WHY is she with main cast? WHY?

  32. LOL says:

    Pine should play frankenstein! he has the perfect forehead for it.

  33. Lore says:

    I love Simon Pegg & his personality always makes him attractive. I know nothing about Alice Eve except that her hair looks terrible here.

    And I’d always hit Chris Pine, he just does it for me. I’ll claim him as my hubby if no one else has.

  34. trillian says:

    Is that really how it works in Hollywood? Some management type calls a girl and asks her out on a date on behalf of the star? Hey, if someone wants to date me, I would expect him to bother to call himself, but that’s just me (and probably the reason why I haven’t dated any stars so far ;-p).

  35. I Choose Me says:

    Love Zoe’s outfit here minus the shoes.

    Zachary Quinto, I love him so. And Simon Pegg. Cute and funny is hot.

  36. KellyinSeattle says:

    I love Zoe’s outfit, too….but Chris Pine? How tall is he? I’ll pass, though.

  37. Reese says:

    Ok Alice Eve is gorgeous, but the new hair is awful. The other pics of her at the premieres are wonderful and she is a true Trek fan which is great.

    Not loving Zoe’s dress, but then again she usually fails to impress me anyways.

    ZQ is beyond adorable and YES. C Pine could totally get it!! ;)

  38. orion70 says:

    At first glance I thought Alice Eve was Jemima Rooper (Nicola in Kinky Boots).

    I love me some Simon Pegg but am giving the side eye to those pants.

  39. SE says:

    Hells yes on Chris Pine (I had to iMDB his dad from CHiPs – totally crushed on him when I was a kid, too) as well as Cumby, of course. But my top pick is that delicious Karl Urban. Yum! So stoked about this film!

  40. dasha says:

    No, he’s an arrogant little prig.

    Now the guy who plays Bones, yum.

  41. Pandora says:

    So so so gross.

    Just ………..so…………..*shiver* ………….gross
