If you've checked out any of the on set pics for the forthcoming film Into the Woods, then you're well aware that the always-sexy Chris Pine is rocking some mighty fine prince pants.

And surprisingly, he seemed to enjoy his time slipping in to those skintight trousers. 

"The prince pants!" he told E! News with a laugh at the Los Angeles premiere of Horrible Bosses 2 at the mere mention of his costume. "My good friend Billy [Magnussen, who plays Rapunzel's Prince], he had the leather pants. Oh, poor Billy. Made many people's dreams come true I'm sure." 

Indeed, he did, but Pine's pants certainly were a sight for sore eyes too! "I had velvet pants, which were very fun…very comfortable actually," the 34-year-old hottie spilled before adding, "When you throw velvet and Lycra [together] a lot of things can happen"

We. Can't. Wait. 

Pine plays Cinderella's Prince in the upcoming Rob Marshall-directed musical flick, which puts a modern twist on the beloved Brothers Grimm fairy tales. The film, which also stars Johnny Depp, Meryl Streep, Anna Kendrick and Emily Blunt, is the movie adaptation of Stephen Sondheim's Tony Award-winning musical.

So, did Pine have any vocal training before testing his singing chops out on-screen? 

"No. I mean, I've sung in the shower for years and thought I was my own best teacher," he said with a laugh, flashing his oh-so-charming smile. "I went to a singing coach...that was another incredible challenge as well that I have a lot of fun with.

"And I have so much more respect, because I'm not really a musical theater guy, but I have so much more respect for the art form of it…" the Star Trek stud continued. "I mean, if you're doing a show on Broadway that's eight shows a week, the physical exertion I can't even fathom. So it's a wonderful, beautiful art form and I'm so glad I got to be a part of it." 

During his chat with E! News, Pine also expressed his enthusiasm over joining the Horrible Bosses sequel, admitting that the project with the star-studded cast was "a lot fun." 

"Really nothing more than a lot of fun. It was a challenge. I hadn't done something like this before, but I mean they're all so good, I figured, you know, 'Why not throw myself in this situation?'"

Gushing over the accolades of his fellow co-stars, which included Jennifer Aniston, Charlie Day, Jason Sudeikis and Jason Bateman, he added: "I felt like I was pretty well supported"

As for the most challenging aspect of the comedy flick? 

"Well, comedy is different than drama in many ways, but as you know…there's a lot of improv, so I think the big skill is just to be loose and kind of allow for whatever happens to happen," he explained. "So that was fun and a challenge I hadn't really done before." 

Horrible Bosses 2 hits theaters on Nov. 26 while Into the Woods debuts on Christmas Day.
