Chris Pine: Bearded Papaya King

Chris Pine: Bearded Papaya King

A scruffy Chris Pine leaves Papaya King after enjoying a guys’ night out on Thursday (June 2) in Hollywood.

The 30-year-old actor is in talks to star in the upcoming drama, Mud, the L.A. Times reports.

The flick is “a coming-of-age story” that centers “on two 14-year-boys who come across an adult fugitive of the law, the titular Mud (who would be played by Pine) and must help him escape off an island in the Mississippi. The ambiguity of the story lies with Mud, who is both an unsavory and a redemptive character and who teaches the boys as much as he learns from them.”

    he looks alike Zack “whatishisname” from THE HANGOVER with his big beard

  • Brainy box

    HALF WOLF HALF MAN!!!!! LOL

  • S@n

    @ carrie
    Zach Galifianakis?
    You gotta be kidding! Nor if Chris struggled a lot in strangeness he would look like that guy! LOL

    @Deemebr
    You ‘re right with beard or no beard he still gorgeous!
    And made a good time that we did not see him having fun with his pals.

  • S@n

    And thanks for that JJ!

  • hobie

    I love beards, they’re so manly.

  • Butter_Fly

    I love beards too and think he looks great with one. I wonder what’s with the Lauren keychain?

  • dalia

    Is “Lauren” is his gf, if so those Pintos aren’t going to like that, lol.

  • Dee or Deemebr

    @Butter_Fly:

    Yes I’m curious too … Who’s Lauren? … LOL … Why do we have to be so observant? … Well is a huge keychain … I think isn’t the key of his car … at least I never saw him carryin it before … and doesn’t match with Porche he was driving lately! ..

    :-) :-)

  • Dee or Deemebr

    I was seeing the photos… CP looks a little gloomy lately… be?

    @Dee or Deemebr:
    He is never comfortable in those situations we know, being caught by the paps!
    I think it’s the beard that makes him look sad!

  • SarahC

    Cannot wait until Star Trek 2 comes out! Does anyone know when that might be by the way? Thanks!

  • Complicated

  • Lia

    could it be laura vandervoot who he was reportedly seeing? just maybe she’s like call me lauren so the paps can’t find out or whatever…oh snap!

  • Butter_Fly

    @Dee or Deemebr:

    I’m actually not an observant person I was just clicking through the pics and it caught my eye. But yeah I admit, it got me thinking. And I hate it when that happens lol. Oh well what can we do? He can’t stay single forever!

  • Butter_Fly

    @Lia:

    That’s the first thing that I thought. If they are then so be it. And if they are then it’s kinda sad that they would have to date secretly but at least she isn’t famewhoring the relationship..that is if they are together. Or whoever Lauren is. lol.

  • lauren

    @Butter_Fly: @Lia:

    Wow that’s the dumbest conspiracy theory ever. They are so private he has a keychain with a name SO similar to hers so they can keep it private? Or how about he’s not a 16 year old boy who would carry a keychain of his girlfriend around? Stop reaching, it’s sad.

  • Mufasa

    WHAT THE. WHO IN THE MOFO IS LAUREN!?

    Facepalm -______-

    I’m such a failure at life. I can’t even get Chris Pine to like me.

    WAH

  • Dee or Deemebr

    @S@n:

    OK … I think you’re right… You know I’m curious to know the reason for that beard… if has to do with a new project he is preparing?? … well maybe CP explains it …someday … when he gives one of those delightful interviews promoting a new movie.. :-) :-)

    CP IS AWESOME ANYWAY!!! … LOL

  • Kimmi

    I KNOW IT’S THE LAURA GIRL. PLEASE IF YOU WANT A PRIVATE LIFE, YOU CANT CARRY A 3RD GRADER BIG LETTERED KEYCHAIN THAT THE PAPS CAN READ FROM A MILE AWAY WITH YOUR GF’S NAME.

    AND HOW COME CHRIS ALWAYS DATES SEMI FAMOUS ACTRESSES, LIKE AUDRINA, OR BEAU OR OLIVIA. IF YOU WANT LONGEVITY IN YOUR CAREER, DATE RACHEL MCADAMS. NOT A GIRL THAT CAN’T EVEN PLAY THE LEAD FOR THE FIRST “INTO THE BLUE.”

  • Dee or Deemebr

    now people will be freaking out… because of Lauren… The keychain is huge… perhaps at the top is written Chris… then … Chris and Lauren… Hahahahaha… a teen thing … and cheesy… I ‘m just kidding… LOL … it definitely does not match a Porsche… because I think he was driving a Porche lately… +LOL

    CZ “Dee – lvs moon’ surface”

  • Nia

    ok, lets just look at the keychain with some logic here. The reality is, he’s a smart guy, he’s not immature, he has a college degree. The keychain is freaking huge with the cutesy lauren name. So, what if it’s a niece or whatever, someone young and cute in the family. Like we don’t know anything about his private life to just say “it’s laura!” I mean in my family, the only person who can get me to wear their name on my stuff are my nieces and nephews. Afterall, anyone he dates for like a day is usually plastered all over the internet, if it’s a gf, don’t you think she’d be ALL over the net? if he’s whipped enough to pull a high schooler and do a keychain. So guys, let this man be happy, he seems like a bright, down to earth guy. Plus, think of it this way, none of us will ever even meet him, let alone get him.

  • inquiring minds….

    Chris Pine “disappeared” for 3 months. I mean, the paps just couldn’t find him, right? So did they suddenly get lucky this time or was this a photo op with a giant “Lauren” key chain?

  • Butter_Fly

    @lauren:

    Oh stop it. Jeez. So what if that’s the first thing that popped into my head. Big deal. We’re just thinking out loud. We don’t mean nothing by it and it’s fun to do. If you wanna see crazy go to Leo post or a Jolie-Pitt post. Now that is funny! You see it’s JJ’s fault, we haven’t gotten a CP post in forever and when we do finally get one we go a little crazy lol. It did strike me curious as to why this guy is carrying around what looks to be a big-sparkly-girly lookin keychain. Not something I expected at all! Haha!

  • addy

    Did anyone use their brains and think it might be a Luaren by Ralp Luaren key chain? He wears a lot of Ralph Lauren crap so maybe they sent it to him. Just a thought. But then, thinking hurts for most fan girls.

  • Dee or Deemebr

    @addy:

    I think you solved the puzzle… HAHAHAH… probably is a keychain of designer Ralph Lauren… blue jeans and tuxedos he used is from the brand… he even gave an interview to their magazine last year…

    CP is a time away from the paps and when he pops, bangs… LOL
    Gorgeous with beard!

    CZ “Dee – lvs moon’ surface”

  • zaa

    ugh .. Don’t like beard on his face

  • Clairedelune

    Finally JJ! Tnx. Agree that the beard has to go. It’s been so long since CP poped up. He looks a bit skinny, no?

  • S@n

    @Dee or Deemebr:

    The keychain is not so big, I saw a picture somewhere else on another angle, and I also think it “might be” the brand Ralph Lauren.

    But whatever, it is smarter to have a keychain with the name of a gf or bf than getting a tattoo with the name, because when the relationship ends just throw away and period! lol

    Funny!!! Who is Lauren? Ralph Lauren, of course! a great advertising slogan! lol
    Now I hope they give a gift to Chris Pine, a lot of those tight jeans he likes! And we LOVE to see him wearing them!

  • diana

    All of this assuming is making me laugh, this guy is a major pussy hound so of course he’s going to have several women and maybe a gf on the side. Fangirls hate to see this guy with any woman, even a model doing a photo session with him so this reaction doesn’t surprise me in the least.

    That name on the keychain is not the Ralph Lauren logo, it looks like a very girlie keychain that someone bought at ahh’s or something.

  • Dee or Deemebr

    @S@n:

    Yes, I saw that picture too… the keychain is different than I imagined… is not huge… combines with a Porche…LOL … and I agree with you a keychain with the name of a girlfriend is much better than a tattoo… smartest…
    you had to mention the tattoo, right? … LOL…

    What about CP… RL? … Lauren? … CP’s business! … I wish he’s happy! :-) :-) <3

    Finally, Chris Pine back home (in LA) again. Perhaps he has been hiding out in his new house or even Greece, Germany…(check out the latest BMW 3 ads for the US market – Chris’s voice-over, film shoot in Europe).

    I thought that Ralph Lauren was a reasonably high-end retailer of men’s fashion and accessories, like caps and key chains.

    Skinny? No, he looks as if he has bulked up a little. Nice beard but his facial features are too nice to hide for too long.

    Chris Pine – take care. Love ya.

  • S@n

    @Dee or Deemebr:

    You know what? I suspect that nobody figured out the riddle!
    Must have an explanation quite simple, something like emotional, about someone important to him, and not necessarily a girlfriend, and no problem with that, by the way!

    Actually I use that keychain that I got from my nephews with their names, a souvenir from vacation, is not sophisticated but it is cool, it certainly does not fit with a Porche. lol
    But if I do not use that keychain I’ll hurt the boys to death! lol

  • keachick

    @S@n Chris was reported to have been vacationing in Mykonos, Greece, very recently. Perhaps he met a lady named Lauren while he was there, hence the souvenir keychain with the name Lauren written on it. Reminder of pleasant memories… It looks so big, almost something you could put a cellphone into, for protection. Anyway, he is holding what looks like a small car remote in his other hand, possibly the one he needs for his Porsche. (Actually I do not recall reading anywhere that he does now drive a Porsche – I just guessed that the car he was driving (seen in a short video clip) could have been a Porsche)

    If he is reading any of this, he’s probably wondering why such small things should *amuse* us, but he is playing us anyway…LOL

    Come on, Chris Pine, is your new (or other) car a Porsche and what’s with the huge keychain?

  • Butter_Fly

    @keachick:

    Haha! You know you’ve made it big in Hollywood when people speculate over a keychain! Congratulations dude! And of course he reads these! I just hope we don’t irritate him with our silly theories and speculations!

  • S@n

    @keachick:

    It would be interesting if the keychain was a romantic gesture, I remember him saying he wanted to be like George Clooney, I can not imagine George using a keychain with that meaning. lol

    So I do not think this is about a girl he met in Greece, would be a special girl, and would be a change in the romantic side of Chris Pine. And it would be great because that story about George Clooney is silly.

    But I bet our “silly theories and speculations” as saying Butter_Fly are far from the true reason, maybe it’s something very simple and important only to him anyway.
    I also hope he doesn’t get upset with us!

  • Dee or Deemebr

    @Butter_Fly:

    And who started it? … the keychain story? … LOL … and I sure he didn’t that on purpose like someone suggested … as far as I know he was leaving the Papaya King at around 3:30 am … and as always was uncomfortable with presence of paps … probably confused with camera flashes … while carrying a water bottle and keychain in his hand … and what appeared? … one, big Lauren … whatever … we were curious, right? …LOL

    But what to do? … he has appeared so little lately … he hid in a rabbit hole and grow a beard … at least it seems he went to Greece for a while … LOL

    OMG! … he knows we’re a little crazy … but harmless ..at least I AM … I SWEAR! :-) :-)

  • Butter_Fly

    @Dee or Deemebr:

    Yes. I am guilty. And I’m sorry. OK, no not really! Haha!

  • keachick

    I think he would like to have a career similar to George Clooney’s, which is a good and interesting one. George Clooney has been able to make good movies that earn him a sizeable income at times and he has also been able to do his own thing, like write, direct, whatever, take a (financial) risk on a play or movie that he is keen to see brought to life…

    Hopefully, he is amused/bemused by all our speculations. Anyway, I think he might be playing us, having us on a bit perhaps…who knows.
