Chris Pine reveals his ideal woman ‘intelligence, beauty and a sense of humor’

I’m going to go see Star Trek into Darkness with Kaiser tomorrow and I’m so excited about it! We don’t live too far from each other (although we met by coincidence on the Internet) so it’s nice that we can hang out and see what’s supposed to be an incredible movie. (We just wish Bedhead could come out with us!) Critics are raving about the second of JJ Abram’s Star Trek installments. Earlier this week I saw the first 2009 Star Trek reboot and was amazed at how good it was. I’m not a huge Trekkie but I have an older brother who watched Star Trek constantly when I was growing up so I’m familiar with the characters. Abrams really did justice to the backstory behind our favorites on the USS Enterprise. The characters and their relationships were believable, the plot was funny and exciting, and I was highly entertained. That first film got a 95% on Rotten Tomatoes and Into Darkness is clocking in at about 87% so it’s supposed to be good.

Anyway Pine did an excellent job as arrogant but heroic James T. Kirk. I wasn’t that fond of him before I saw that film but I am now! Pine was on Ellen recently and she asked him about his ideal woman, and about his fans, who are called The Pine Nuts. I know about you Cumberbitches/people, but I’ve never heard of Pine Nuts before. These fan group names are getting so creative. Here’s more:

Chris Pine may not have a lady in his life, but the single star knows exactly what he wants in a woman. During a May 16 appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the 32-year-old Star Trek Into Darkness actor confirmed Us Weekly’s report that he is a “single man” after splitting with model Dominique Piek earlier this year.

“What would you be looking for when you are looking for a woman?” DeGeneres asked the blue-eyed actor.

“I don’t know,” Pine shrugged. “I think anything that any normal man would be looking for: intelligence, beauty and a sense of humor. . . You have to be able to carry a conversation after the initial attraction kind of dies down.”

During their chat, DeGeneres also tried to make Pine tear up after he revealed in Men’s Health that he cries “all the time.” The 55-year-old talk show host also asked the California native about his legions of admirers. “My fans have designated themselves the Pine Nuts,” he told DeGeneres.

“Let’s talk about your Pine Nuts,” DeGeneres said as she presented the actor with a pair of yellow briefs. “What do they do, the Pine Nuts?”
Laughing, Pine replied, “They’re just a nutty bunch!”

[From US Weekly]

I like that Chris put “intelligence” before beauty in his ideal partner list. I don’t know how accurate that is. After all, he’s dated Audrina Patridge, Olivia Munn and a model called Dominique Piek. Dominique and Chris broke up in late April, and there were rumors that he was controlling and she was sick of it. With those type of ex partners, I’m not buying that he’s into “intelligence” first, but I could be wrong. Whatever Chris is into, it’s not settling down. He’s said he wants to be like George Clooney in his relationships and isn’t looking for marriage and kids anytime soon.

So I guess you can’t count me among the Pine Nuts yet. I like him just fine as Captain Kirk though, and he’s definitely easy on the eyes.

Chris Pine is shown outside Jimmy Kimmel on 5-16-13 and at the STID premiere on 5-15-13. Credit:

    I watched it too(Ellen), and I ended up liking him less.

  2. Champ says:

    WTF. Whats with all the fan armies lately? I always took comfort in the thought that Beliebers and Directioners would grow out of it when they hit puberty. Apparently there are adult women who are still in that mode. I dont know whether to laugh or cry at/for them.

    • Ravensdaughter says:

      Pine’s way too young for me, but I wanted to, again, correct an earlier blog post-no nude shots of CP. Just tighties and a scene in another movie wearing an “athletic supporter”.
      Good thing. Whoever plays Kirk must maintain a modicum of decency; although I always liked how Shatner played him (in terms of a hero’s character “flaw”) as a womanizer with ethics and a heart of gold.
      I remember Shatner as Kirk from when I was a 5 year old. I thought he was awesome! He must have been quite the hottie to ladies then.
      Fandom with adults is not new. Think of another hottie of the time-Tom Jones! I distinctly remember “liberated” women throwing bras at him while he was on stage performing. And this was prime time television!
      Lighten up, Champ. Life is short. Besides, maybe the REAL fandom is for Star Trek itself!
      WARNING-you could be lured to the Fandom BASE!!!!

    Yeah, he’s cute. He’s not my type, but he’s cute.

  4. moon says:

    Well, Audrina and Olivia had beauty and a sense of humour (maybe), so they checked two out of three boxes. Or at least, the most important box – beauty. A man can’t have his cake and eat it too. They’d like to have it all, but push comes to shove, they’d take beauty over intelligence.

    And as a girl, I prefer hot over intellectual, so I can’t blame the guys!

    • FLORC says:


      Audrina and Olivia brought more physical to the table. They both seem equally empty intellectually to me. Olivia on G4 is where I started giving her the side eye. He’s so clearly enjoying getting girls before he settles down. I bet in time he might find one that has those qualities and holds his interest in the bedroom. For now he’s leaving girls when he doesn’t want to be tied down or when the bedroom gets boring.

      I’m still hot for him and even his role in The Princess Diaries 2 was hot! It will remain on my DVR forever.

  5. Erinn says:

    Don’t like him. Not sure why. Never once have I felt even remotely swooney looking at him. And I don’t like his personality really, either.

    • FLORC says:

      Personality does play a huge role in attraction. He’s hot and likes to sleep around. He’s a normal, young leading man in Hollywood. He did get a bad wrap from some tabs making up stories that he’s a controlling jerk. That is BS with no real sources, but if you thought of him with a sweeter personality and take into account his intellectual side he’s more than sexy.

  6. barhey says:

    Idk, he doesn’t do it for me. The fivehead maybe? Or how he gets Bradley Cooper eyes from the wrong angle? I can’t put my finger on it

  7. Micki says:

    I’d carry a conversation but I’m worried I may reduce him to tears, he seems to be so weepy

  8. aims says:

    He is cute, no question. I’m a little turned off by his personality. I’ve also heard he’s a bit of a control freak. That’s a no go for this girl.

  9. Gina says:

    I feel like he probably suffers from a Napoleon complex

  10. T.Fanty says:

    There is a *really* interesting article about STiD floating around other now that kind of explains why Cumby keeps going on about the whole terrorist/freedom fighter thing:

    It includes MAJOR spoilers, though. Consider yourself warned.

  11. Kaboom says:

    Hasn’t he learned yet that he can only have two out of three?

  12. Apsutter says:

    He’s very cute…love those eyes! Just saw the new Star Trek last night and it was AMAZING!!!! Love the whole cast, Quinto as Spock is perfect and I LOVE Bones. And I have to apologize to you Cumberbatch fans. I never got his appeal but after ST…now I get it.

  13. Madpoe says:

    supermodels? Intelligent? same sentence?
    perhaps they are, they keep nabbing actors and musicians while the rest of us get the couch ‘”ill take out the trash in a min hon” potato.

  14. Ravensdaughter says:

    I think the Vulcan sign thing is not coordination, but genetics, like rolling your tongue. Has anyone researched that?
    Oh, btw, I’m a fan-of STAR TREK!!!

  15. Thunderpuss says:

    He only dates famewh*res. who are not too bright so can he please stop lying. The cliched answers (crying, intelligent women) are a total turnoff.

  16. jamee draper says:

    Yeah this guy comes off too fake and phony to be attractive.And my d-bag radar is beeping like crazy.He is too much like Jake Gyllenhall;decent actor,kind of short,but nothing special.

  17. Miss Silver says:

    Saw the movie yesterday 3D Imax and it felt like you could reach out and touch Cumby’s face. Also loved Spock and Scotty.

  18. nikki says:

    So,basically he wants wonder woman…A woman like that is hard to find these days.I hope he finds her,though and BE GOOD TO HER.

  19. Miss M says:

    “…intelligence, beauty and a sense of humor. . . ”

    Chris Pine, please stop talking about me. I am not interested, sorry. Hahahaha.
    OMG, here you go… he’s crying now…

  20. Andrea says:

    He’s a great actor and I enjoy him on film. Very good looking. Would never trust a man who listed Clooney as an influence though.

  21. TheyPromisedMeBeer says:

    Ugh. He totally stole his fan name from MY fan club, the Beer Nuts.

  22. yeahright says:

    Am I supposed to swoon? Good grief, the lad wants tits. TITS. It’s ok to say it.

  23. Guest says:

    he forgot to mention his dream woman would have a penis.totally gay,whose he kidding?

  24. Zvonk says:

    Sans beard, not attracted to him at all, but with the beard, I’d do very naughty things to him. Grrr

  25. Carolyn says:

    hehe “Pine Nuts” – I’ve never heard that. Not sure I’d ever want to meet him…just gazing at him on the big screen is enough.

  26. Michelle says:

    I’ve met him twice. He was very sweet and gorgeous beyond belief. Blue eyes like I’ve never seen before, pink lips and white teeth with a gorgeous smile. You can’t get any better looking than Chris!
