Chris Pine Makes Red Carpet Debut With His Sports Illustrated Girlfriend Dominique Piek [PHOTOS]

Cannes 2012
The film fest's grand opening ceremony.
Actor Chris Pine brought girlfriend Dominique Piek along to attend the opening ceremony and Moonrise Kingdom premiere during the 65th Annual Cannes Film Festival at Palais des Festivals on Wednesday (May 16) in Cannes, France.

This is the first time the 31-year-old actor has been seen in public together. Chris’ Sports Illustrated model girlfriend, 26, walked hand-in-hand at the opening night gala in France Wednesday.

South African Piek, who wore a Giorgio Armani gown, tweeted that “nothing could have prepared me for the crazy red carpet experience. Thank goodness I made it in one piece up the stairs!”

The couple have been dating since last fall. In November, the notoriously private Star Trek actor visited Piek’s native country and “stayed with her parents in Capetown,” a source tells Us Weekly. “Dom introduced him to all of her friends and family there.”

Such an attractive couple!
