Chris Pine in LA

Posted on May 29, 2013

There might have been a time when an outfit like this would have us sharpening our claws and paging through our thesaurus in preparation for some epic bitchery.  Yes, it’s true. Shocking, we know. We were monsters once.


Chris Pine arrives at Bootsy Bellows nightclub in Los Angeles.

But we couldn’t possibly rag on a man who’s spent the last month globetrotting in the tightest little suits you ever did see for his Star Trek poledance. If any boystar has earned the right to eat carbs and dress like a schlub right now, it’s him. Have some cheese fries, Chris. We won’t judge.

      Chris Pine with a side of cheese fries sounds so good right now.

      • surfergirl70

        EXACTLY what was running through my head.

      • gabbilevy

        I just had lunch, but I’m hungry again all of a sudden.

      • drdarke

        So which is higher in empty carbs – cheese fries or Chris Pine?

        Oh, and a shout out to my fellow Trekkers?
        FUCK J.J. ABRAMS!

    • Nikko Viquiera

      clothes?! All i see are his blue eyes!

    • thecitysleeps

      His girlfriend obvs did not get the memo.

      • sugarkane105

        What girlfriend? I can take her.

        • Julie Chase

          ^HA HA HA

        • Emily

          Yea she’s brand new and her mother isn’t happy about it. She (the mother) has openly said that if he hurts her she will hurt him.

          • drdarke

            @Emily – is this an actual problem with him, or is Mom just assuming Big Hollywood Stars are inherently abusive…?

        • Louise Bryan

          If he told Ellen the truth, there is no girlfriend just now.

          • fursa_saida

            There is “some girl he was seen leaving somewhere with holding hands” but that doesn’t mean she’s his ~girlfriend~. I wouldn’t be surprised though if he’d deliberately put off being seen with her till after the press tour, the better to present himself as an object for audience fantasizing.

    • Silly Grrl

      YES. He should always have a beard too. Damn.

    • Meg0GayGuys6

      I (and probably those girls in the background) wish I (or they) could go to a club in such schlubby clothes.

      • YoungSally

        They probably can’t wear schlubby clothes because they may be at “work” – at least the young woman wearing the shirred belt…I mean skirt.

    • Elizabeth Phillips

      Really, Chris? A knit cap in LA at the end of May? Is that Zachary Quinto’s influence? Stop it!

      • 3boysful

        I thought he got papped on an early morning coffee run. Really? Clubbing clothes?

      • WendyD

        I’ll take ZQ’s influence on his style any day.

        • littlemissstrange

          “I’ll take ZQ’s influence on his style any day” – I believe I will as well. Hmmmyes. Influence all UP in that boy.

          I don’t mean make him wear douchey hats but the gay thing would be nice. Mmyep.

      • Jane Donuts

        It’s a classic LA d-bag look. One of my least favorite So Cal styles.

        • Emily


    • MilaXX

      I like everything but the hipster hat.

      • MaryMitch

        What is it with guys and knit hats? They just look stupid and make your head all sweaty.

    • annabelle archer

      Roll on, handsome, roll on.
      PS – thanks for paying attention and shaving your neck. It’s much more kissable now.

    • Synnamin

      Now that’s a man who can wear a beard… and I don’t really like beards. He’s never done anything for me, but now I wouldn’t kick him out of bed

    • Gaby

      I am just going to devote my comment to appreciation for his beard, which is full and magnificent and the neckbeard is minimal (I can forgive a little evening stubble in clothes like this, and he’s always clean in his suits). Plus the streaks of grey and gold in it make it look both regal and unfussy somehow.
      Carry on, good sir. For beard-lovers like myself everywhere.

      • skitzfiggitous

        And OF COURSE Chris Pine would keep his neckbeard properly maintained even whilst in “schlub” mode. This man is a treasure.

    • Kiltdntiltd

      I will take me a big ol plate of him, and the fries too. We will need it for what I have in mind.

    • marlie

      He looks like a bum, but I guess even he deserves a break every once in a while.

    • DaveUWSNYC

      Alright, alright…I’ll go along with you THIS time, boys, since here he’s a sexschlub on a stick…but the next studlet with a knit hat on in NYC in summer gets eviscerated…promise?

      • Lisa McKissack

        I need to now work the word “sexschlub” into conversations.

    • majorbedhead

      I can’t with the douchecanoe hat. I just can’t.

    • YayaGurl

      Whenever a guy walks into my store with a hat like that I mindscream “douchebag” and 9 times out of 10 I’m right.

    • sagecreek

      I remember once, many years ago, seeing Julia Roberts on a late-night talk show with horribly dirty hair. I think really pretty people just get bored sometimes of being so darned pretty.

      Must be nice.

    • JP

      I’m fine with the outfit except for the hat. Just as lady stars should be banned from those patent nude platform shoes, dudes should be banned from the Douchebag Wool Cap when it’s not winter. *grumble*

    • FunButNutz

      Looks like he’s going to dinner with Mustached George Clooney…..

      • Agatha Guilluame

        He’s going the Brad Pitt and Johnny Depp (I’m so beautiful I don’t have to try) route and I am NOT amused.

    • Shawn EH

      He’s still color coordinated with those pearly grey eyes!

    • quiltrx

      The schlubby clothes are fine…but I can NEVER sign off on that DOUCHE COVER on his head! I bet it smells like a foot dipped in ass.

      • TropiCarla

        “I bet it smells like a foot dipped in ass.”

        LMAO – I have to borrow that line. Thank you!

    • Sara Leigh Merrey

      I judge him for the hat. I hate those hats!

    • Ashley Ellen Wilson

      MMM. Uhhmmm. Those are the only things I can think when looking at this man. well….the only NOISES I can think. UHNH.

      • Lisa McKissack

        an UNF here or there too.

    • barbarienne

      I hope the beard is for a role, or perhaps just to hide for a while. I saw ST:ID this weekend and was completely distracted from both Karl Urban and the Cumberbatch by Chris Pine’s perfect profile.

    • snarkykitten

      So last week on Psych, Gus stole a hippie’s beanie because he felt insecure about his ear lobes. Yep, that’s what I’m getting from this.

    • nannypoo

      I’m not really up to date on my clubwear, but this seems better suited to a trip to the landfill.

      • formerlyAnon

        Depends entirely on the club & the crowd. In some circles, this is appropriate. At places that are not cheap, serve decent booze and are only down-at-the-heels to the extent that it is part of the intended effect/scene. (I am far from knowledgable about any kind of scene, but my son – who got all the patience and tolerance in the family – recently took me out to see some acts/hear some music at several places in L.A. At more than one, this was definitely the fashion vibe. Weird, fascinating city. Alongside the young adults with 2 part-time day jobs or a crappy internship, some of the 20-30 somethings dressed like this arrived in cars that cost half or more of what my house is worth.)

    • TSkot

      Damn, he’s handsome.

    • FrigidDiva

      Anytime I see a guy wearing a douchey knit hat like that in warmer climes I just think of how sweaty and smelly his head must be by the end of the day. However, since he’s otherwise well groomed and he’s been hard at work I’ll give him a pass this once.

    • RichStrathmann

      2008 Brad Pitt called, he wants his shit back.

    • lilyvonschtupp

      Quit with the wool cap dude. So Colin Farrell 8 years ago.

    • Sarah Thomas

      Man, I wish I was that stoned right now. #stillatwork

    • formerlyAnon

      I am down with everything but the hat.

    • AnniNoone

      Girls, he SHAVED HIS NECK. That earns him a sloppy t-shirt and a watchcap anytime, as far as I’m concerned.

    • TheAmericaness

      I am not a beard person, by any means, and he makes me crave some beard… but as long as it’s on him and that’s all he’s wearing.

    • Lisa McKissack

      Schlubby yes, but I’d still hit it in a heartbeat.

    • siriuslover

      He has a hole in his pants!

    • marshmallowjane

      He sure is pretty.

    • littlemissstrange

      A little hobo-ish, but that is the style I suppose. Something interesting I just noticed: his charm seems to evaporate when his eyes are not visible. At least for me. That last picture for me is like “UGH, no thank you” but the other ones are like “Hmmm douche hat but I’ll take it. *swirly hypno-eyes*”

    • sk8tfan

      When the heck did “used condom” on the head become the go-to look for the fashionable hipster? It needs to join nude platforms, granny pants, sheer anything and cutouts in the fashion failure hall of fame.

      • JauntyJohn


        My friends and I call it “The Douchebag Hat” because no matter who wears it (*ahem* Mr. Pine), no matter how hot they are or great or whatever, they invariably look like the aforementioned D-Bag.

    • annrr

      uh no. It is obviously too hot for a skull cap, so instead of working as a disguise it instead says “He everyone look at me sweat into my big blue eyes”

      • annrr

        oh and hate the beard

    • DuBey2

      I swear he looks homeless in the last photo(closeup). The knit turban should be worn by No Man. Ever.

    • akprincess72

      Loathe those hats. I work at a university & they are just everywhere. I just can’t forgive the horrid things!

    • Annarosa

      Ok, he shaved the neck, but he could also wash his hair (and that’s why he wears that stupid hat).

      Oh, come on, guys, he looks like a mother****ing hobo!

      The sexiest, hottest, super handsome hobo I’ve ever saw on earth, jeeee, those eyes, I hate him; I’d eat him.

    • EEKstl

      I judge nothing but the hole in his jeans. That I judge.

    • NYCGlamourpuss

      “We were monsters once.” It’s okay – we can be monsters for you. He looks like a just-rolled-out-of-bed dorm rat.

      “If any boystar has earned the right to eat carbs and dress like a schlub right now, it’s him. Have some cheese fries, Chris. We won’t judge.” (*Looks at TLo in shock*) It’s like I don’t even KNOW you anymore! (*Runs from room, crying dramatically*)

    • Pterodactyl111

      I have a friend who wears a hat like that every single day. I think it’s because he’s self conscious about his red hair.

      • formerlyAnon

        Silly, silly man. Hope he grows out of it. Red hair is fabulous. (The extreme paleness/freckledness that often goes with it is what can challenge one’s feelings of innate fabulosity.)

        • Pterodactyl111

          Yeah, I’ve tried telling him it’s nice, but there’s some things you just have to arrive at yourself.

      • NYCGlamourpuss

        He’s *self-conscious* about his red hair? Oh, he needs to stop that right now – ginger men are fabulous!

    • BeeBeauNYC

      I hope this is the beginning of Sausage Thursdays in addition to Sausage Fridays.

    • Eileen Duffy

      Sorry, but there is NO excuse for that hat.

    • guest2visits

      O my is Chris P feeling a beat..? That is adorable.

    • mozzer0906

      The bigger question is why in the holy eff is he wearing that hat when he is clearly sweating his ass off?

      • mozzer0906

        And is LA under some freeze warning that I’m not aware of?

    • Daktari100

      Uh, I don’t know. It looks like even the douches around him are laughing at that finger-pointing dance move or whatever that is. Even they know a hipster knit hat in the Summer is just plain silly, as evidenced by the sweat on his brow.
