For those who have seen Star Trek: Into the Darkness, This Means War, Unstoppable, or any other Chris Pine movie, it’s not uncommon for their favorite actor to be this major hottie. After all, he shines in these movies by using his charisma and undoubtedly earns all those awards he hangs on his wall. While many actors dish out their personal details to the public, Chris Pine tends to be one who keeps quiet and hush-hush. In fact, much like the secretive CIA agent that he plays in Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, Chris Pine tries to keep his secrets and personal life to himself. When asked about his secretive actions towards social media, Chris simply states “I have no interest in that…Privacy is not as guaranteed, is not as respected, cherished or desired as it once.” For all you out there looking to learn a few things about Chris Pine, let’s dive right in and take a look at this juicy, much-loved actor.

#6: His grandmother loves William Shatner

What’s the best way to get to Chris Pine’s heart?  Go through his grandmother!  To do this, one would need to know that she is a huge William Shatner fan.  When Chris was growing up and his grandmother would babysit him, she would watch T.J. Hooker over and over.

#5: Third-generation show biz

Not only was Chris’s father into show biz, his grandmother starred in more than 60 films, making Chris third-generation show biz.  His father played in the 1970s cop show known as Chips.  Additionally, his mother was in the film Master of the Universe.  Lastly, his grandfather was an entertainment lawyer.  Needless to say, Chris has always been surrounded by the show biz industry.

#4: He’s a biter

Lindsay Lohan once claimed that while kissing Chris during the movie Just My Luck that he tried biting her.  Since no one can believe anything Lindsay has to say, especially after her claiming she’s only done cocaine a couple of times and then changing her tune, the whole Chris-is-a-biter thing will always remain a mystery.

#3: He was kicked in the stomach by a stuntman

After accidentally breaking a stuntman’s nose on set, the next day Chris was kicked in the stomach by the same guy.  Although the stuntman says it wasn’t on purpose, Chris claims he doesn’t know.

#2: He used to exercise in a kitchen

Chris used to work out in a kitchen.  That’s right.  He avoided the gym and instead worked out in his trainer’s kitchen alongside Zachary Quinto who just so happens to be Spock in Star Trek.

#1: Pine went to college

Think a college degree won’t get you anywhere in life?  Think again.  Chris Pine studied acting in England and San Francisco.  In addition, he always earned a degree in English from UC Berkeley.

Much like the secretive CIA agent that he plays in Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, Chris Pine tries to keep his secrets and personal life to himself.
