Chris Pine in brown herringbone at UK ‘Jack Ryan’ premiere: would you hit it?


I said this about the photos from the LA premiere of Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, but it’s worth saying again about these London premiere photos: Keira Knightley is not the prettiest person in the film. That award goes to Chris Pine. I feel like Chris and Keira are going pout-for-pout, sultry side-eye for sultry side-eye. They’re both smoldering, no doubt. Maybe this should be a “Who would you rather?” post. Some people might not be able to decide.

Keira’s dress thing is a Proenza Schouler frock from the Spring collection. Before I saw the front-slit, I thought it was chic but boring, like Keira was trying to channel Audrey Hepburn’s little black Breakfast at Tiffany’s dress. But the slit reveals the design flaws. All of a sudden, I can see how the skirt’s hem is screwed up, either unintentionally or intentionally. The sad little flat peplum adds nothing to the equation and if Keira wanted to wear something high on her neck, there surely would have been better options. And look at her shoes! What’s with Keira’s bow problem these days? She keeps wearing clothing with little tiny bows. It’s driving me up the wall.

As for Chris… brown herringbone is a surprisingly bold choice for a younger male star, especially an American. I don’t think of brown herringbone as a particularly “evening look,” but the suit pops on the red carpet and props to him for trying something different. He looks so damn dashing, I don’t know what to think. I think I might have to make him my #1 Shamef—k. Help!

PS… Keira’s lipstick is just a shade too orange, right? She needs blue-reds, not orange-reds.

PPS… Okay, I’m not crazy about Pine’s neck hair. I’d make him shave it, then I’d bang him.

    Yeah I’d hit it. And by It I mean Kiera.

  2. Falula says:

    I would not make him shave it. Takes away precious moments. He’s such a tool but SO PRETTY. UGH.

    I would like Keira’s situation better if it were a shorter skirt without the slit. And the shoes are terrible.

  3. SonjaMarmeladova says:

    Keira is so beautiful. One of the prettiest actresses around, I really love this combination.
    Chris is too pretty for my taste. Kenneth looks good.

  4. Secret Squirrel says:

    Would I hit it?? Let me think about it for a min…NO. I just don’t see the pretty in this one. He’s too pretty maybe?? I’m also saying NO to the brown suit. That is old man territory!

    I’m not a fan of Keira’s clothes as a general rule. She needs a good hearty meal to put some shape onto her tiny frame.

    • Mallory says:

      Weight-shaming goes both ways and Keira’s been the subject of it for a long time.
      Being thin doesn’t make her anorexic and she’s not preaching weird low carb-no food diets a la Goop.

      • Zadie says:

        Yeah, and it’s not like she suddenly lost a lot of weight like Kate Bosworth or Emma Stone. She’s been like this since forever.

      • Secret Squirrel says:

        Sorry for the misunderstanding. I wasn’t weight-shaming, merely commenting that the style of dress she is wearing here is better suited to a curvier frame. This dress seems to almost swamp her and I don’t think its the first time she has struggled to get the style right for her body. Maybe she needs a better informed stylist who knows how to dress her right for her body shape/size. I have seen her in absolutely gorgeous gowns that suited her perfectly, but this isn’t one of them…

      • Roxanna says:

        :T It doesn’t seem like a misunderstanding you said, that she needs “good hearty meal to put some shape onto her tiny frame”. Which doesn’t sound like she needs a tailor more like she needs to gain weight. As Mallory said she’s been given a lot of flack for not being a “real” women with “meat” on her bones. That kind of thinking is supposed to be feminist and anti body shaming but really it just seems like instead of stop body shaming, people stop fat shaming (rightfully so) and started skinny shaming. You can’t say someone needs to gain or lose weight, it’s just mean. So please next time don’t write comments like that it can be hurtful and we don’t know what type of effect it has on her.

  5. Maya says:

    Stand in line Kaiser – Chris Pine is hot and is number one on my list. Just don’t tell my husband that because the poor man thinks I will choose him over Chris;)

  6. Lucy2 says:

    Kiera looks good.
    Chris is pretty but I find him kind of boring.

  7. Dani2 says:

    Nope, my dad has a suit very similar to the one he’s wearing here and it’s his male equivalent of a freakum dress. So no thanks.

  8. Sixer says:

    Nice suit, particularly in the legs department – and everyone knows I like legs – but no, I wouldn’t/couldn’t hit it.

    Keira – nope too. If we were talking Sidse Babett Knudsen then I might go for the girl angle.

  9. Mia4S says:

    Oh my. Yeah he’s on my list, order to be determined. ;-)

    The fact that his next two movies are comedies makes me like him even more. Sense of humour does wonders.

  10. Mouse says:

    Is it just me or does that look like a linen dress?

  11. LondonGal says:

    What’s the goss on Pine? is he a known knob? He sure is purty whatever the personality.

  12. Nick says:

    I’m a straight male but whoa he’s like really, really handsome. Like I would never go to the club or a party with him because he would ruin my chances of meeting women if he was around.

    Keira is such a gorgeous lady.

    And this movie looks ridiculously stupid.

  13. Jericho says:

    Chris Pine, for the longest time, was in my “Well, he’s pretty enough” list. That salt-and-pepper beard, though, is really doing it for me.

  14. Talie says:

    Chris has got a great look, but outside of Star Trek… his film career as a leading man seems to be on life support. It may be time to drop down to being a supporting player or check out cable TV.

    • Mia4S says:

      Nah, he’s good to go at least until Star Trek runs out. Plus he’s supporting in his next three movies (one with Meryl Streep and another with Christoph Waltz). Pretty smart move actually.

      Jack Ryan’s also doing better overseas too (which I find hilarious since you could not get a more American hero).

  15. OriginallyBlue says:

    He’s so pretty. There is a guy in my class who looks like him. I would definitely bang him.

  16. Sankay says:

    Chris Pine? For the first time I thought maybe, I can see a nice looking guy there but no. Especially with what looks like the beginning of a Leonid Brezhnev eyebrow game.

  17. T.Fanty says:

    I would. Maybe I’m bored, but the light if his flame is shining bright in those pics.

    Afterwards, he could talk to me and send me to sleep.

  18. Maya Dragunova says:

    I will definitely have Chris with or without neck hair! Come to think of it I don’t mind a three way with Chris and Kiera.

  19. Lis says:

    Chris Pine, yeah, sure.
    Kiera, no. Prefer some meat on the bones.

  20. Lori says:

    I think he does the neck beard to cover up serious acne scaring. He’s has quiet a lot of scaring on his jaw line.
    He’s been interviewing really well this time around. really well. And he’s so well spoken. But this time around he has a beauty queen/model piece……… I don’t know.

  21. Dani says:

    He’s a really good smizer. Tyra Banks would be pleased.

  22. pru says:

    Wow, not fond of that suit. And I think it looks horrible on the red carpet and for this occasion.
    I think Chris is only a maybe for me. It really depends on how he’s styled.

  23. Penelope says:

    Hate the neck hair, love the suit and those blue eyes. He’s gorgeous.

  24. TSwise says:

    Chris is very pretty, indeed. His features are so dainty.

  25. That dress is awful—it’s boring, yes, but it also makes her look square and squat. NO.

  26. Maggie says:

    He’s gorgeous and I actually like Keira’s dress.

  27. NoDragonJustFlies says:

    Chris? Nope. He looks like a log of wood here, with roots growing in anti-gravity way.
    Sorry, just realised those were beard. *frantically searching for my missing contact lense*

    Keira? Yeap.

  28. Judy says:

    Love the dress. Adore the shoes. I do not see an attempt at Audrey’s iconic dress here at all. This dress has a more ’30s style. It’s more Carole Lombard than Hepburn. And it’s lovely.

  29. Thunderthighs says:

    Bang him, hang him, bang him on the hangers, bang him till next year. Or till I drop. Whichever comes first.
