Chris Pine, Chris, Christopher Biography
Christopher “Chris” Pine was born in Los Angeles, California, in August of 1980. His father is Robert Pine, who is also an actor, best known for his role on the popular television series CHiPs. His mother is a former actress. Pine spent quite a bit of time on Hollywood sets while his father worked although he says that his main interest at the time was in sports and not acting. Pine attended the University of California Berkeley and received a bachelor’s degree in 2002. He then studied English for a year overseas at the University of Leeds in England. Pine returned to San Francisco, California, to study acting at the American Conservatory Theater.
Pine’s first professional roles were on television. Pine worked on the sets of ER, CSI Miami, and The Guardian. His boyish good looks earned him the lead in his first movie, The Princess Diaries 2. He later co-starred with Lindsay Lohan in Just My Luck, Smoking Aces, and Unstoppable. Pine is perhaps best known for his role as the young Captain Kirk in Star Trek and Star Trek into Darkness. Pine enjoyed his role as Captain Kirk so much that he did a full length documentary with the original Captain Kirk, William Shatner, appropriately entitled “The Captains”, which Shatner both wrote and directed. In this documentary, Shatner interviews Pine about how it felt to play Captain Kirk. Pine has done some recent work as well including the romantic comedy This Means War, opposite Reese Witherspoon, Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, and Horrible Bosses.
Pine purchased a posh Mediterranean style estate in the Los Feliz area of Los Angeles for an impressive $3.1 million. This young actor has a net worth of $20 million and with the announcement that he is going to have a part in the 2017 film Wonder Woman, this rising star will surely earn even more fame and fortune.
