LAS VEGAS — Chris Pine showed off his surprising new bald look in Las
Vegas on Wednesday. It’s his idea, his handiwork and his story is the
best hair tale you’ll hear all day.
“Yes I did it myself, I used clippers,” Pine told USA TODAY before taking the CinemaCon stage to promote his new movie Wonder Woman during the Warner Bros. presentation at the national convention of theater owners.
Pine’s new look is not for an upcoming acting role. Star Trek’s
Captain Kirk was home ill with long hair and a full beard when he
decided to start cutting out of boredom. It was an elaborate process, as
“I went through phases. So I had long hair and a beard. And first I
did a facial hair thing. That was fun. I did the mustache. I did a
little General Sherman,” Pine said of the Civil War general with a
distinctive receding hairline and beard. “Then I did a full-shaved back
(of the head). That was fun for a day.”
Please take a moment and imagine Chris Pine walking around his house with a shaved back of his head.
But the work went on.
“Then I got a fade. Then I started doing designs. And then I got real bored,” said Pine, admitting to hitting a hair “nadir.”
