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.”

    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.

    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?

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

    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 Says:

    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 Says:

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

    OT Says:

    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.

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

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

  22. 22
    lulz Says:


    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 Says:

    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 Says:

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

    Sheen Says:

    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?
