Chris Pine at the BBC Radio Two Studios in London to promote his new movie “Star Trek Beyond.”
Darlings, feel free to take in these Chris Pine pictures. After all, Chris Pine is certainly not hard to look at, is he? But as you scroll through, please allow us to make an unpleasant point.
Chris Pine is young enough to be George Clooney’s son. Technically, he’s even young enough to be Brad Pitt’s. It’s rather hard to believe, judging by the above shots, but Chris Pine is half a decade away from entering his forties.
Now, this isn’t a criticism of how Chris is aging. As far as we can tell, he’s aging fine. Facially, he looks no different than a lot of 35-year-old men. But his style choices are incredibly aging. Not that many 50-year-olds are running around in pants or shirts that tight, but there tends to be a slightly Euro stuffiness to his style that doesn’t exactly highlight his youth. The Robert DeNiro circa 1995 haircut doesn’t help, nor does the Santa Claus beard. We’d never insist he dye either of them, but the hairstyle could use some serious freshening. And if you’re a man in your thirties with a beard that’s more than 50% gray, maybe you should put off growing a beard for a half-decade or so? Nothing wrong with some salt-and-pepper on a man, but there is such a thing as seasoning a cut of meat before it’s ready. His style choices easily add ten years to him.
