Check out these two new photos of Chris taken by the same photographer who shot him for his Esquire UK Magazine cover issue! Kind of hard not to love these photos, am I right?

I have added 10 additional photos of Chris from his Esquire UK May 2013 cover issue. Some even in high quality, including the first four photos!
I also replaced & added the entire set of Esquire UK magazine scans, as I only just realized it was missing some pages, including the alternate cover!

It was exactly six years ago today that I opened what you know as The Chris Pine Network. Thinking back on it now I don’t think I had even the slightest inclination as to how bright Chris’s future truly was. I remember the excitement and glee I felt when he was cast in the very first Star Trek. And now, only a few weeks since the release of the second film in the rebooted Star Trek franchise and I am unequivocally sure I made the right choice the day I decided to create my own little corner of the internet. And here is something you may not know; what you know as The Chris Pine Network was originally named “Pining for Chris” in our first year of existence, which you can see on our very first site design above. Cute, right?
Now I realize that in this day and age, that just about anyone can create some sort of page in dedication to whomever they adore. However, it stands to reason that building a website from scratch and maintaining it for years is hardly an easy job. It takes patience, and knowledge; not something easily created by pressing a button or sharing a link. Now see, I’ve always held myself to a higher standard than most, and for that I suffer from a terrible case of perfectionism. It often plagues me but ultimately, it makes me better a version of myself. It makes me want the best, and has pushed me to do what I know I am capable of. Which is why when I think about this site, an unreal amount of pride bubbles up from within. I truly feel as though I have put my heart and soul into the site through the years, and my passion is the entire reason it exists in the first place. There is a quote I am rather fond of. One you might say is my life motto, and that is; “Do things with passion, or not at all.” – And frankly, it is often my go to when I wonder if something is worth my time. And as it stands, for the past six years running this site, and being a dedicated fan of Chris has been my passion, and I am proud to say is still going strong.
I’ve added 8 high quality scans of Chris from his cover issue of OUT Magazine for their June/July issue which is now on newsstands.
In addition to those, I have also taken the opportunity to replace the June issue of Men’s Health with high quality versions as well, including the alternate cover only available to subscribers. Enjoy!
It’s that time again! We, The Pine-Nuts have decided on another project in honor of Chris’s 33rd birthday this year. We’re going to be collecting donations for a great cause, which will be put together in some sort of presentation and sent to Chris personally in time for his big day.
If you’re interested and would like to find out how you can get involved, please follow the link to our Pine-Nut Project page to find out more.
If you have any questions don’t hesitate to ask.
