"Chris Pine - strong charisma and natural elegance"

eyes…ice code…tssss

Chris Pine: 

What are the codes for a man today?

Integrity and generosity of spirit. Elegance does not only involve the clothes you wear, it has much more to do with how you conduct yourself in this world.

What is seduction for you?

I think it’s an understanding of the other person. A desire to know what they want and what would make them happy.

What would you never do to seduce a woman?

Try too hard to impress.

What attracts you to a woman? What pushes you away?

Confidence and humour but never arrogance.

How would you define masculinity?

Strength that comes with being comfortable in one’s own skin.

What makes you feel masculine?

I have a pair of boots that I’ve had forever that remind me of my uncle — they feel like they’ve kicked over a stone or two on a dirt road in Montana and then spent the evening by the fire.

What do you think is a man’s most powerful weapon?

A difficult question… Intelligence, self-awareness and the ability to laugh at yourself.

What is your idea of elegance?

Confidence. Simplicity. Craftsmanship. Detail work that can be appreciated by the connoisseur but that is never garish or flashy.

Is it Chris Pine the actor or Chris Pine the person that we are seeing in the new Armani Code ad campaign?

Like any performance there is a bit of both, I suppose. For the commercial, Andrew Dominik (director) and I came up with an idea of who this gentleman was, exiting the hotel on his way through a revolving door when he catches sight of this extraordinary woman. But the camera is an incredible thing and no matter how much you may think of disappearing, it inevitably captures something of who you are at that moment in time. Brigitte Lacombe who did the portraits has an incredible quality to her; an ability to create a calm and peaceful environment in which I felt comfortable and, ironically, at home.

What is the difference between shooting a fragrance commercial and a film?

Well, certainly the speed with which you shoot.  A film can take anywhere from a month to 6 depending on the size. We only had two days to shoot our commercial so Andrew and his team had to come in, and they did, fully prepared and know exactly what they wanted to get.  But, as it is with a longer format, you are trying to tell a story. You play a character and tell the story as best as you can.

In general, what is your relationship to fragrances? Do you like wearing them, change them often? How do you put perfume on yourself?

Fragrances, as with clothing, say a lot about a person. It’s a part of how one presents oneself to the world. I’m very particular and when I find something I like, whether it be a suit or a cologne, I tend to stick by it. Less is more for me when it comes to a fragrance. You want it to feel close to the skin as if it’s an extension of you, of who you are. Just like a well-tailored suit, a cologne must fit just right. (x)

"How you look, it must, it does, define what you get. You have to push to get certain parts. I did a film called Smokin’ Aces and originally the casting director wouldn’t see me for the part - a tattooed, redneck, hillbilly,"

"I really wanted the part, I pushed for it, I went in and eventually got it. That was definitely one of the big highlights of my career." (Chris Pine)

Yep, and now we are definitely waiting for ‘Stretch’!

Roberto Orci talks on Star Trek 3

""What can I tell you?Well, fans are a little bit nutty, so I have got to be careful with what I say, but I can tell you that it definitely takes place in [deep] space,” he told Latin Post. "They’re finally on their five year mission and that hasn’t been the case in any of the previous movies. The first two movies are set up to where the original series started. 

"Now when you watch this movie, hopefully, you will see that Kirk, Spock and Bones and Scotty, Uhura, and Chekov are very close to the original characters that you saw in the original series and from [there] they’re going to hopefully discover some stuff that you haven’t seen before.""
