From being a popular face in the Star Trek franchise to becoming a DC recruit in Wonder Woman, Chris Pine has always been regarded as one of Hollywood’s most good-looking actors with a striking personality and acting chops to match. The star has been in many blockbusters that have showcased his assets successfully, making him a favorite especially with his female audiences.

Pine though, has also been on the wrong side of fame with his film, Outlaw King. The actor who impressed people with his performance in the historical epic, also made the headlines for a particular scene in which viewers got a fleeting glimpse of his private parts.

In the historical drama Outlaw King, Hollywood star Chris Pine plays Robert the Bruce, a servile nobleman who carved an inspired and bloody journey to become King of Scots during the first war of Scottish independence. Also starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Florence Pugh, Outlaw King was praised for its brilliant visualization of battle and the intense performances of the ensemble cast.

But it was Chris Pine’s fleeting moment of n*dity that became a huge talking point among audiences. In a scene that required the Star Trek actor to take a dip in the waters, viewers quickly caught a glimpse of his exposed p*nis which led to a viral discussion online with Pine becoming a target for memes and one-liners. The actor, who was bemused about the attention his private part was getting, gave a brutal reply saying,
“People were giggling about my p*nis as if they were schoolschildren. I think it’s maybe the dying embers of this Calvinistic idea that self-flagellating and shame and anger and violence is all good and yet s*x and intimacy, making love is bad. And that manifests in us all giggling about a p*nis – it’s so stupid”
The Wonder Woman star also pointed out that while Florence Pugh wasn’t targeted for getting n*ked in front of the camera, the reaction to his extremely brief exposure was taken a bit too far.

Chris Pine’s heartthrob status was also a result of his appearance in the Princess Diaries franchise. With his role as the handsome Nicholas Deveraux in Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement, Pine sent women swooning. When asked if he would be interested to reprise his role and work with Anne Hathaway again, the actor said,
“Yeah, I’m here! I’m here for it. Give me a phonecall or an email.”

While a third Princess Diaries which looks to be in the works, may be a while before it gets into production, Pine, for his part, jokingly made sure to mention that he would prefer a ‘low-profile hair helmet’ if he was so called upon to be in the film.
