Chris Pine


Like a fine wine, it's safe to say Chris Pine only gets better with age.

A point which the hunky actor proved during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show airing Thursday, Jan. 16, when Ellen DeGeneres opted to suddenly share the Star Trek stud's dorky high school yearbook photo.

And it's even better than you could imagine.

Ellen begins by informing the audience that Pine's father, Robert, played Sgt. Joseph Getraer on the hit NBC series CHiPs, which ran from 1977 to 1983. She then pulls up a photo of the Jack Ryan star's dad to show the similarities between the father-son duo before suddenly flashing Pine's yearbook photo—much to the 33-year-old hunk's horror.

"Well, I'll be seeing you later," Pine quips, attempting to run from his chair as the embarrassing photo appears before bursting into a fit of giggles. "I don't really know what..." he says, trailing off in an failed attempt to explain the flashback photo.

"At the time, I'm sure that was important to have," the funnygal replies with a laugh.

"The mullet-esque haircut or the piece of animal on my chin?" Pine inquires with a huge grin as he playfully strokes his much-improved scruff. He then jokes that the photo was taken in 2010 before revealing that the pic is actually from "1998 or something"

"Yeah it's the '90s. We all should get a pass for the '90s," DeGeneres says, jumping to Pine's defense. "That was a one wants to see themselves in the '90s."

"You can take the picture down now," Pine says, trying to contain his obvious embarrassment.

"Oh no, that stays up the whole show," Ellen replies.

Set your DVRs, folks.

The funnygal then concludes by sharing her latest innovation with the hottie, telling him to market "Chris Pine fresheners"—in case the actor hasn't had enough humiliation for the day. 

"Would it be odd at all to hang these in my car?" he asks.

Not at all, Chris, not at all (where can we preorder, Ellen?!).
