Chris Pine: MET Ball with Elizabeth Banks!

Chris Pine: MET Ball with Elizabeth Banks!

Chris Pine suits up in a Polo Ralph Lauren navy tuxedo for the MET Ball held at NYC’s Metropolitan Museum of Art on Monday (May 3).

The 29-year-old Star Trek actor and 36-year-old Scrubs star Elizabeth Banks were spotted heading into the 18th floor of The Standard Hotel. They hopped out of their car together and reportedly came from the MET Gala after-party at The Mark Hotel.

Elizabeth married sportswriter and producer Max Handelman in 2003 (they began dating since the first day of college on September 6, 1992). They last hit the red carpet together in September 2009 (pictured below).

UPDATE: Elizabeth says Paul Rudd was also in the car with her and Chris! She joked, “I would have really loved it if they had said I was in a three-way with Paul Rudd and Chris Pine.”

    wha ta cougar

  • Lucy

    Um, her and her husband are very much together. If appearing on the “red carpet” actually means anything, they were last seen together on the red carpet at the Oscars. Men and women CAN be friends, folks.

  • Deedz

    Um, what? Okay. Anyway, I love the suit. Very dashing.

  • Leah

    Chris looks sooo good!!

  • lulz

    Two celebrities shared a car to go to an afterparty. Alert the media.

  • Linney

    Yeah, except you can find her and her husband Max together at the Academy Awards a few months ago. Guess you don’t know your sh*t, do you?

    Douche.

  • Linney

    @Elle:

    Riiiight, and why would YOU know this?

  • Butter_Fly

    I agree #3. It definitely makes his eyes pop.

  • Melody1836

    LOVE the blue suit ! it goes amazingly well with his eyes !
    nice of him to wear something else than the typical black suit

  • shaar

    I was going to say that he’s finally dating a woman’s who’s worthy but after reading the part where she’s married, I’m realizing they’re just friends. Pity, would have made a cute couple.

  • lulz

    Stop being misleading, Jared. The wording makes this sound a hell of a lot seedier than it is. Hopped out of their car to go to the 18th floor of a hotel oooooh. Tell everyone that the Boom Boom Room (a bar at the Standard Hotel) is on the 18th floor and there was a MET afterparty there.

  • the_boyfriend

    that looks so good on him.
    of course they’re not doing each other..erm..hello?!

  • OT

    Paul Rudd is in the background of one of the pictures, so it looks like a group of them just rode together to the afterparty. Lulz is right – stop being misleading, Jared.

  • WICKED WENCH

    Oh, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that suit – on him or any hottie with blue eyes. Definitely a keeper to wear again.

  • myntz

    The best part of this is the random Paul Rudd cameo in pic #4! They’re prob all going to the same after-party.

  • lulz

    @OT:

    Yup, I noticed Paul Rudd as well. But you know how it goes. People stand next to each other or heaven forbid share a car ride and they’re a couple.

  • San

    Chris and Elizabeth were next one each other in the audience at Oscar night(2010). Maybe just friends, maybe not!
    Chris really looks gorgeous with this blue tuxedo! And she is hot.

  • San

    Probably just friend and she was with her husband in the Oscars…

  • Sheen

    Guys should stick to basic black for these things. That Tuxedo he has on is completely hideous and he looks like a clown. No other man looked that silly.

    And that is weird to arrive at an after party with a married woman, but then again, I still say the guy is gay, but oh well. I don’t know why we prop these celebs up like they are important. All they do is go to parties and sniff each others rears. When do these people work?

  • lol

    And what is up with those shoes on him. Brown? …SERIOUSLY?

  • Dee

    Before party just friends afterparty who knows?… kidding….CAPTAIN FINE in blue loved …..brown shoes? no……AWESOME CP!!!!

  • Dee

    The Mark….. Oprah after- party I guess.

  • Dee

    And CP seems to be a little bit drunk already…..but gorgeous anyway!…. Great party, of course!

  • Dee

    And CP seems to be a little bit drunk already….. but gorgeous anyway….Great party, of course!

  • jaceym

    He looks gorgeous of course, but he’s stoned ALL THE TIME.x

  • jaceym

    He looks gorgeous, of course, but he’s stoned ALL THE TIME.

  • jaceym

    gorgeous but stoned, as usual.

  • jaceym

    Sorry, it took ages….

  • OT

    Hey @lulz, did you see in the “Penn Badgley: MET Ball with Blake Lively!” post, that it mentions Penn and Blake “attended one of the after-parties on the 18th floor of The Standard Hotel”?

    Funny how Chris’ post had no mention of an afterparty, only “spotted heading into the 18th floor of The Standard Hotel.” Makes it sound so scandalous!

  • San

    The best pic of Chris at MET GALA I saw in THE CHRIS PINE NETWORK, Chris and Kate Hudson, both great!

  • San

    @OT: Boom Boom Room’s after-party, that’s it!

  • lulz

    @OT:

    I did. Jared is so transparent. Trying to create gossip out of nothing. *yawn* *next*

  • grace

    idk her, but love her dress. looks gorgeous!

  • grace

    idk her, but love her dress. looks gorgeous!

  • Keachick

    Navy blue suits Chris Pine. The guy is not gay, he just has not got a girlfriend at the moment.

    Why do some think he is on drugs?

    The only thing I wonder about are his lips.

    Anyway, he looks as handsome and gorgeous as ever.

    Love you, Chris.

  • Keachick

    How can anyone tell from a couple of pictures if someone is stoned or drunk?
    Why all this stuff about Chris Pine? Is there any actual evidence to support these assertions?

  • lucylulu

    I think he had 3 cross country flights in less than 2 weeks time – he looks tired more than anything else. i think any one would be if they had to do that kind of travelling..

  • Dee

    @Keachick: Hey Keachick take easy…… he was in met gala…. then more 2 after parties… he was just having fun and drinks a little bit…CP is Awesome!…. there are greats pics in THE CHRIS PINE NETWORK….
    I don’t think he’s a drunkard!

  • Keachick

    Why did he need to do so many cross country flights? Is he working on a film on location? I hope so. If so, I wonder which one.
    I didn’t think he was drunk. I was wondering why other posters thought he was drunk or stoned. One said he always looked stoned. Probably just a silly person having a brainfart or something.

    Anyway, even the best of us can get hooked on drugs, alcohol, tobacco. I guess, I wish for Chris to take care. He is such a lovely, talented guy.

  • DP

    I think he’s been in NY for a week, since the Monogamy with ZQ. The question is, what did he do for that long? Was there any preparation of Jack Ryan? I hope so, cause he seems tired or not fit, but not drunk. Well, whatever it is the blue tux was OK, but the shoes … It doesn’t seem so match Hunny Piney!!

  • Stacie

    Lovely as usual .

  • Keachick

    I suspect Chris may have some family in NY. After all, his father is originally from NY. Just a guess. I hope they do start working on the Jack Ryan movie, if they haven’t already. Here’s hoping.
