Chris Pine already has a new (swimsuit model) girlfriend, Amanda Frances

Here are some new photos of Chris Pine leaving Bootsy Bellows on Friday night in LA. You have to look closely at the photos to see that Chris was actually holding hands with that brunette girl. Just before Chris geared up to promote Star Trek Into Darkness, “someone” managed to confirm that Chris and Dominique Piek had split after about a year together. So Chris was “single” for the promotional tour – and he got to talk about what he was looking for in a woman, which included “intelligence”. Well, it’s time to lower your expectations back down to Audrina Patridge-level, because the girl he was with on Friday is a “swimsuit model” named Amanda Frances. You can see her Twitter here. She seems to be some kind of “glamour model” who does only semi-naked photoshoots.

Chris Pine clearly has a thing for buxom brunettes. After splitting with love Dominique Piek earlier this year, the Star Trek Into Darkness actor was spotted enjoying the company of swimsuit model Amanda Frances at Bootsy Bellows in West Hollywood May 24. The casually-dressed duo held hands as they exited the trendy nightclub and waited for their ride.

“He is very attracted to her,” a source tells Us Weekly of Pine and Frances. “They are having a good time. He’s very excited about his career right now, too.”

During a May 16 appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Pine confirmed he was “single” and said he hoped to find a girl with “intelligence, beauty and a sense of humor. . . You have to be able to carry a conversation after the initial attraction kind of dies down.”

Hopefully Pine can overlook Frances’ attraction to another A-list star. In the March issue of Maxim Espana, the New Orleans native named Magic Mike hunk Channing Tatum as her celebrity crush. “Yum!” the 5-foot-10 beauty said of the star, who’s expecting his first child with wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum.

Pine is currently in talks to appear in director Rob Marshall’s movie musical Into the Woods. The 32-year-old would join previously announced cast members Meryl Streep, Johnny Depp and James Corden. Pine’s next film, the action-thriller Jack Ryan, is slated for a Dec. 25 release.

Yeah, beard or no beard, I can’t really get on board with Chris’s taste in women. Several years ago, his people told the tabloids that Chris prefers the C-list famewhore and glamour model types, and it looks like that’s still his type. Is this disappointing? Kind of. But I guess you can’t change what kind of girl you like.

    Anyone else getting a massive Robert Pattinson vibe from those pix of Pine in a beanie?

  2. marie says:

    ehhh, she’s not even pretty.

  3. Kath says:

    After seeing him on Graham Norton’s show, I thought perhaps he had hidden depths. Now, not so much.

    A swimsuit model? Really?

  4. Atlanta says:

    He is like Leo then. Pretends to be all intelligent and deep but likes his women to be less than intellectually challenging.

    • Anna says:

      Except that Leo gets to pick from Victoria’s Secret starting lineup

    • carol says:

      why are some men like that? Are they just sexist, or is that their taste in women?

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        That’s just what I don’t understand at all. Men like Dicaprio and Pine. We see that they are both smart, nice, caring guys, who are good actors, whose girlfriends/dating life doesn’t overshadow their body of work. We don’t ever hear any stories about either of them being douchebags or jerks, they’re both good actors, amazing even-Leo more than Chris- so I just don’t understand why they only date models. I mean, I can understand not wanting to date a “normal” person, someone who wouldn’t know how to handle being in the public eye with you, but there are so many women in Hollywood, besides actresses and models, that are intelligent and beautiful.

        Like Kate Winslet. She may bring up body image a lot (I think she’s trying to be a role model, that she never had in the media), but she and Leo have one of the truest friendships I’ve ever seen in Holllywood. Just the way that they talk about and to each other in public (see her golden globes speech), they remind me a lot of my mom and her siblings. They’re tight. I mean the only hope for him now, is to end up with an Annette Bening like woman, who will tell him what she wants and won’t settle for less…if he’ll listen. At this point the only two meaningful relationships he’s had has been with Kate and his mom. I don’t get how he could be with Gisele or Bar. Maybe because he was working a lot, as always? Gisele is a snob, not quite on GOOP levels, but Bar is an idiot.

  5. T.Fanty says:

    Wasn’t it just last week that we were discussing an interview in which he said he liked women with brains?

    I’m sure their conversations must be very intellectual.

  6. moon says:

    Chris is such a walking cliche.

    Of course, there’s always the possibility that glamour models are intelligent too, we shouldn’t jump to discriminate. It’s just not highly probable.

  7. Mia 4S says:

    Oh come on, he just got out of a year-long relationship and he’s not looking to get married. The boy’s single, no kids, let him have his fun on the rebound. In three years we will revisit.

    I have to say I’m a bit uncomfortable at the way we ladies always dismiss these woman as morons. I’m not saying she’s a rocket scientist but she may be quite nice. We all get enough dismissal from men; until she does something worthy of disdain (honestly I doubt she’ll be around long enough) I’m neutral.

    • Anna says:

      I absolutely agree with your argument; my counterpoint (aside from what Fanty said up-post) is that ‘swimsuit model’ is a nice way of saying ‘glamour model’ and ‘glamour model’ is one step up for 3rd-rate Playboy bunny. There’s nothing inherently wrong with this either, but women of intelligence rarely enter into this kind of occupation because they tend to have much better options.

      ‘Intelligence’ being a dating prerequisite Chris himself highlighted in his interview, he has given us a carte blanche to parse his choices, based on available evidence.

      • T.Fanty says:

        This. If one likes floozies, that’s fine. At least DiCaprio doesn’t hide his superficiality.

      • Mia 4S says:

        LOL, fair enough. Although as I sit at me desk and begin each long day doing my (very respected) profession and earn a fraction of what these girls can earn in a day….I sometimes have to wonder who the “intelligent” ones are. ;-)

      • Anna says:


        I will make you feel better.
        NYMag has done a number of articles (‘exposes’ is too heavy of a word but that’s what they are) on what models REALLY make. Basically this isnt the 80s-90s any more. When it comes to cash, most models make less than an administrative assistant – that’s why almost all of them have off-season jobs such as waitressing.

        When you take away the model-moguls like Tyra/Heidi/Giselle who make most of their income from non-modeling activities, & the Victoria’s Secret gang, it takes something like $200k/year to make it onto the list of 20 HIGHEST PAID MODELS IN THE WORLD! Out of literally thousands.

        Often models are paid in last season’s clothes; the highest-profile campaigns usually pay nothing or bare minimum bc the brands laud the benefits of ‘exposure.’ Highest-paid gigs are catalog work for high-end brands (Saks, etc).

        Of course the biggest reward is non-financial, it’s exposure & opportunity – to travel, to mingle with celebs, to have your picture taken and hopefully become a celebrity yourself, and then monetize THAT.

      • Atlanta says:

        being this type of model does not pay anywhere near as well as high end models who do campaigns for big fashion houses. They are not especially well payed.

      • Thubdercloud says:

        There was another article which said alot of these models are escorts on the side.

    • Anna says:


      And just in case you thought we might be too harsh and judgmental of this ‘nice girl’ – just hours later she’s gone on Twitter to confirm that she’s having a sleepover with Mr. Pine. A class act indeed.

  8. Thubdercloud says:

    She is one of the those trashy skin models featured in fhm or maxim. Calling her swimsuit model is a nice touch.

  9. Miss M says:

    I’ve been saying all along that I feel a very strong douche vibe from him. Trust me, I can recognize the Hollywood douches from afar…And let me tell you, he has not entered my favorite Hollywood douches list that includes Franco and Butler.
    He said he was mentored by Alec Baldwin and someone said here that he said he would like to be like George Clooney (Something like that). Helloooooo…
    Enough said.

  10. Jennykins says:

    She looks a bit like a brunette Blake lively in the first pic. Also someone needs to love the pretty dum dums, they are people too.
    What happens to swim suit models once they pass their expiry date? Do they make tons and can just retire?

  11. bridget says:

    The dude dated Audrina Patridge. Enough said.

  12. Trisha M. says:

    Why has no one mentioned her shorts? She probably leaves trace vaginal fluid on any surface she sits on. Gross.

  13. OhDear says:

    Lainey pointed out that she had some interesting tweets after these photos came out. Certainly seems more calculated than stupid.

    She seems like the attention-craving type, though. And he may value intelligence, but not as the first priority.

  14. Scarlett says:

    She was tweeting about “someone” being in her bed snoring and retweeting any compliments that people were making on her body. She comes off as a vapid, thirsty attention seeker. It’s a surefire way to get kicked to the curb fast.

  15. flower says:

    Does he have a replicator at home or something, because all of his girlfriends look the same. Amazing.

  16. Jeff says:

    Because they go out a few times, does that make them an item?

  17. Myrto says:

    Oh Chris, just when I was starting to get a proper crush on you, you do this.
    I never understand those men who date airheads (I don’t mean a one-night stand, I mean dating). It must be so boring. Like, what do they even talk about?
    I know plenty of airheads in my life and they all bore me to tears. Why even bother?

  18. Patrice says:

    What’s with celeb men who CONTINUOUSLY go for this type??? These are the so called *cough Instagram* “models” who always manage to “accidentally” fall pregnant and/or mysteriously begin to get papped constantly mere minutes after beginning “relationships” with these dumb dudes. (I put that in quotes b/c since when do one night stands or calling paps on yourself to get photographed exiting clubs together=a relationship?)

    I truly love my fellow women (for the most part) but you can spot these ubiquitous fame-seeker/gold digger types a MILE away, plus they’re everywhere. (If we can see it, why can’t the men?). If you’ve ever had the misfortune of being on the Hollywood nightclub scene, they all even look exactly the same too: Hair extensions? Check. Collagen lips & huge implants? Check. Spray tan, pale lips and smokey eyes? Check. (Seriously. Just take a look at Jeremy Renner’s baby mama or queen of the B-list celeb chasers, Jasmine Waltz. They’re both completely interchangeable with this girl!) I’d like to think that as a sex we’ve come a lot further along than making mockeries of ourselves this way, but the whole thing just majorly gives me the creeps. Why ladies? Why?
