You Will Never See Chris Pine Dyeing His Facial Hair: ‘I Don’t Want to Look Perpetually Young’

You may have an image in your mind of Chris Pine as the perpetually boyish Prince Charming-type from Into the Woods and Star Trek, but these days, he’s embracing a different image: One in which he stops shaving, embraces his grays and gives overalls a spin. Was this conscious? Is he undergoing a style revolution? Will he have the salt-and-pepper beard forever? He got on the phone with us to answer all these questions and more.

Pine says the gray-speckled beard and new lease on his wardrobe are all coming with being 36. “I’m enjoying the aging process and the gray hair and the wrinkles,” he tells PeopleStyle. “I find the ritual of shaving very relaxing, but for every day, it’s pretty irritating on my skin, so I like having the definition a beard gives. I have some white hairs coming in, so that gives it different colors, I guess. But, quite honestly, it’s just really f–king easy.”

And don’t expect him to pop up on a red carpet one day with a suspiciously dark beard. “I don’t think there’s anything less attractive than a man over-dyeing things on his face, so I’m going to try, for as long as I can, to age as my male forefathers before me,” says the star. “My father started getting grays when he was in his 30s, as did my grandfather before him, so I don’t want to look perpetually young. To each his own, but it’s just not for me. Men trying to look young doesn’t really go for me. I mean, I’m Botoxing on the daily, but …”

But what he will get on board with (quite literally) is a pair of cozy, lived-in overalls, which he recently wore to get on a plane with a straw fedora and bright red sneaks.

“It’s f–king clothes, man. It’s like … I don’t know. Overalls are super comfortable, a lot of storage space, they’re not tight and you can sit on an airplane for 14 hours,” he tells PeopleStyle when asked about the onesie #OOTD. “Yeah, I don’t know. I really like overalls. What can I tell you?”

And although he’s the face of more than one sophisticated scent from Giorgio Armani (including its newest, Armani Code Profumo), Pine’s approach to scent is as relaxed as his style and grooming mantras.

“There’s nothing really fancy about spraying a perfume on your body,” he says. “I think it’s just that it’s really fortunate that I have the luxury of being involved in the brand where I get free stuff.”

He adds: “I’m definitely of the less is more mentality, and what I really appreciate is that fragrance is chemical, and it changes with your body throughout the day. It’s a very deeply personal thing. One smell on one person isn’t the same on another, and I appreciate the uniqueness of that experience.”


Chris Pine Likes Fancy Fragrances and Overalls, Dislikes His Toothbrush

Chris Pine Likes Fancy Fragrances and Overalls, Dislikes His Toothbrush

Chris Pine—a telegenic hunk whom you may know from Star Trek, but do not know from Captain America (because that’s Chris Evans, silly!)—is the new face of Armani Code Profumo. He’s repped the Code Collection for Armani since 2014, which means he is kind of an expert.

So when I find out that I’ll have a chance to interview him, I know I need to brush up on my fragrance know-how. This man is a pro!

To prepare for our chat, I sink into a foam-padded office stool that I pretend is a leather-bound loveseat and brainstorm. An entirely invented, but in-my-mind solid gold monocle over one eye, I read the press materials for Profumo: “Intense and vibrant, Armani Code Profumo, the new masculine fragrance for men, envelopes itself in warm colors and draws us into a world where seduction is an art, a lifestyle. The flawless mastery of every code.”

“What a lovely and masculine haiku for men,” I think. I continue, taking notes now. “Armani Code Profumo resonates with a real and present masculinity,” the one-sheet reads. It makes for a “magnetic attraction.” It has a base of tonka bean.

Pretty soon, it’s time to talk to Chris. We’re chatting over the phone, but that’s fine because there is a very nice photo of him at the top of this press release so I can visualize him. He is like the Mona Lisa. No matter where I’m standing in this tiny conference room, his eyes follow me. I look down at the rest of the one-sheet, in search of inspiration: “Code Profumo illustrates the seductive vibrato played out between a man and a woman. In a sensual wake, he charms, the atmosphere warms,” it reads. Chris! Behave!

Anyway, I force myself to pay attention and get serious! I have an interview to conduct.

Moments later, my iPhone rings. It’s Chris! We exchange pleasantries and I pause for a few seconds, waiting for the air around me to warm. It doesn’t happen. I blame that on my over air-conditioned office and carry on. Since this new masculine fragrance for men is all about “a world where seduction is an art, a lifestyle,” I decide to kick off our conversation by finding out when Pine last exercised this talent. International man of mystery that he is, he isn’t very interested in telling me.

“I don’t know what that means,” he says. “That’s not really reflective of what I like about especially this new fragrance, Profumo, which is really wonderful and intricate and complex.” He “just [thinks] it smells really nice.”

“Succinctly speaking,” he continues, “this line of [the Armani Code] fragrances runs the gamut from the top citrus notes to the deep bottom base notes of tobacco and leather and patchouli, all these things that I tend to love. If you like fragrance and you like it to be well-made, I think you’ll find it here.

“You’re a very seductive salesman,” I am tempted to say, but I stop myself. Instead, I ask him what Profumo reminds him of.

“It’s perfectly timed for this fall, as a fall fragrance, I guess,” he says. I immediately think of pumpkin spice lattes. I can’t help it! I’m sorry. “I’m just kind of making that up,” Pine says. “But I say that insofar as it has those kind of notes that are redolent of smoke and leather chairs and sitting around the fire and sharing a great meal and conversations.” Continue reading
