Actor Chris Pine has been an A-list actor for nearly two decades, yet he never seems to age! Some fans have speculated that plastic surgery is how the star keeps getting hotter and hotter — but has the Star Trek star actually gone under the knife? Here’s what we know about Chris’ transformation over the years.
Though there have been rumors here and there, the Los Angeles native has never spoken publicly about getting cosmetic surgery. However, the heartthrob has always been considered one of the hottest hunks of Hollywood — surgery or not.
Chris got his start playing Lord Devereaux in The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement, which put him on the map in 2004. Since then, he’s become well-known for his performances in Smokin’ Aces, This Means War, Jack Ryan, Hell or High Water and the Wonder Woman film series.
It was Chris’ role as the iconic James T. Kirk in 2009’s Star Trek that set his career on the road to stardom. Due in part to his praised performance, the film went on to spawn two sequels: 2013’s Star Trek Into Darkness and 2016’s Star Trek Beyond.
Renowned director Quentin Tarantino — who is working on a fourth Star Trek film starring Chris and his fellow reboot castmates, including Zachary Quinto — once remarked to MTV that the actor was the reason he got interested in working on the sci-fi franchise. “I thought Chris Pine did a fantastic job not just playing Captain Kirk but playing William Shatner’s captain — he is William Shatner,” the filmmaker, 57, said. “He’s not just another guy, he’s William Shatner’s Captain Kirk.”
Chris’ current projects are just as exciting as his looks. He stars in Don’t Worry Darling, a horror-thriller starring Florence Pugh and One Direction alum Harry Styles. The film — which continued production with precautions in Los Angeles amid the coronavirus pandemic — also stars director Olivia Wilde.
“The aesthetic of the movie is beautiful. The story is so compelling and so fun and so dark and twisted,” Chris told Entertainment Tonight in December 2020. “It’s a great cast. You know, life is short, so hopefully you get a chance to make good art with people you really enjoy, and I’ve been really, really lucky in that regard.”
Chris looked dapper while attending the Venice Film Festival alongside his Don’t Worry Darling costars in September 2022. So, it’s safe to say he’s still got the looks!
