Congratulations On Your Timing, Bro: Chris Pine Is Single

By  | 

Chris Pine and then-girlfriend Dominique Piek attending Moonrise Kingdom premiere in Cannes May 2012Hey, how come nobody ever bothered to tell me that Chris Pine was in a relationship? It wouldn't have affected my Star Trek-themed daydreams about him in the slightest, but it would've been good to know, at least. I mean come on guys, you have an obligation to keep me informed. I'M A JOURNALIST. But anyway, Chris had apparently been dating a lass by the name of Dominique Piek since last May, when they went public by showing up on the red carpet together at Cannes. Which is easily the most romantic red carpet to make your couple-y debut on, on account of it being in France, so he must've been really serious about her.

But alas, it was not to be, as rumors are drifting through the pipeline that the two of them have recently split up…just in time for Chris' film Star Trek Into Darkness. Listen, bro, I don't know you at all, but I gotta give you mad props for that timing. This is set up to be my favorite movie of the summer, at least, and definitely in the top three for the nerds of the world, vying with Iron Man 3 and Thor: The Dark World, so there is literally no better time to be white and nerdy and single. Chris is notoriously very secretive about his relationships, so there's no official confirmation on this, but he has made the following statement in the past:

“I do like dating cynics—they tend to be incredibly funny. Dating someone on the opposite end of the happy spectrum teaches you an incredible amount of patience.”

Okay so…I mean…I write on a funny blog for a living, and I'm pretty cynical, soooo maybe we'll run into each other at one of the screenings for Star Trek Into Darkness and fall in love? I'll be the one reading Wuthering Heights with a rose through my teeth.
