Chris Pine shows off his package.
Well hello Chris Pine!

The Star Trek star and his heart-melting blue eyes cover next month’s issue of OUT Magazine. The 32-year-old opens up about his love life, his friend and co-star Zachary Quinto, and how he feels about being considered an A-list hottie!

Besides his good looks, the actor is very smart. He graduated from the University of California with a bachelor’s degree in English and also attended Berkley. How’s that for a fun fact!

During his interview with OUT, Pine opened up about a few things other than the two new movies he will be starring in – Star Trek and Jack Ryan, alongside Keira Knightley.

ON ZACHARY QUINTO COMING OUT:

“It was something that I knew about Zach from the moment I met him. “It was just who Zach was and that’s that. I’m sensitive, and I don’t ever want to make anyone feel uncomfortable. Knowing that for Zach it was more about a career thing and that he was not comfortable at the time coming out — it was fine. It was something that we kind of tiptoed around and I just took it as a given, because that’s what he wanted.”

“So happy for him, oh man. I thought it was rad. It was really, really cool. He did it on his own time, on his own schedule. And Jonathan [Groff], who he’s dating, is such a lovely man. He’s a good guy and a great actor, and they make a fantastic couple. I couldn’t have been happier for Zach.”

ON BEING COMPARED TO RYAN GOSLING, CHRIS EVANS, AND CHRIS HEMSWORTH:

“I am part of the white, brown-haired, blue-eyed population. We’ve been given a great opportunity, but in order to carve out our niche, we’ll have to do a good job of differentiating ourselves. I’m not taking away from anybody’s talent, but if you look at that other generation, I think there was much more disparity.”

ON PLAYING A GAY ROLE IN THE FUTURE:

“Right now I just want to play good roles, and if the role happens to be a gay man, that’s not of any import other than is it a good story? Does it say something that’s interesting? All it really takes is the fact that the man isn’t going home to his wife, but has a boyfriend at home. I think it would be a wonderful thing to see.”

ON HIS LOVE LIFE:

“It’s really hard in our business to maintain something. For me, right now, it’d be really hard. Well, I’m a 32-year-old man. I feel like it’s always springtime.”
