CHRIS PINE Opens Up To Men’s Health Magazine


When a man can open up about crying during “The Notebook” and “Up,” you know he’s a keeper, right? LOL. Well, according to Hollywood actor Chris Pine, that’s exactly what he did as he opens up to Men’s Health Magazine about what makes him weep along with a few other goodies in his interview. Here are some snippets:

On what’s in store for Star Trek into Darkness: “Much more action; much, much more intensity; and a lot more fighting.” In a couple of words? “Seriously epic,” he says.

On being a misfit in high school: “Just looking at a girl felt awkward. When you feel like an oddball, it never really leaves you. Even now, I’m better around people who are uncomfortable with themselves, the misfits.”

On his father’s acting career: “Acting was work for him. It was a job. I always thought there was something great about that. Almost like you’re working in a bank. You don’t get carried away with yourself.”

On being mentored by Alec Balwin: “I was transparent in my desire to be mentored. ‘Please give me sage wisdom,’ I’d say. Alec just took me by the shoulders and said, ‘Do it,’ which to me meant ‘Jump in, dive in, take it. Smile and laugh. Grab it, chew it.’”

His Motto: “Just get in there and get dirty.”

His Hero: “My father. He leads with his heart. I have a memory of us fishing. It could be f–king miserably boring, but he was totally invested in what this experience was going to be for me. His absolute dedication to my interest is what moves me when I look back on it.”

Last website he recommended to a friend: “”

What to cook to impress a girlfriend: “Steak: Sear the meat to create a few nice lines. Know how long to grill it so you only have to flip it once.”

Last time he cried: “I cry all the time—at work, at the shrink’s, with my lady. TheNotebook killed me. Up destroyed me. Up was like the animated Amour.”
