Men’s Fitness Names Chris Pine One Of Their “25 Fittest Guys” April 26, 2011

by Staff , Filed under: Celebrity,ST09 Cast , trackback

Since his big break as Star Trek’s new Captain Kirk, Chris Pine has moved up the list in Hollywood and now he is on another list. This time it is being named by Men’s Fitness as one of 2011’s “Fittest Guys.” Details below.


Chris Pine – One of 2011’s Fittest Men

Chris Pine is named as one of Men’s Fitness Magazine’s "25 Fittest Guys." Here is an excerpt (via Starpulse) where Pine explains his workout tips:

Chris Pine, The Captain, 30

Pine needed to keep up with his career as Captain Kirk in the "Star Trek" franchise revival; he says he enjoys working out, boxing and playing basketball. Pine has also been tapped to be the new Jack Ryan in the latest Tom Clancy caper.

Here is a preview preview of the issue from E! News (courtesy of

Here is the full list:

June/July issue of Men’s Fitness magazine goes on sale nationwide May 9.

To tide you over, here is a pic of Chris from last year’s Details magazine.


1. Dee - lvs moon' surface - April 26, 2011

So we all like a bit of frivolity, right? but… Captain Fine is a little different now… at least different that photo for Details magazine … he has a beard and a Porche, I guess!. LOL … I loved it! … I hope Keachick can see it, now! … +LOL

:-) :-)

2. Keachick - April 26, 2011

I can’t say enough of just how gorgeous our new captain is. I love that photo above of Chris…I have a thing about his gorgeous hair covered arms – just another nice part of the whole CP ensemble. Of course, Chris refers to this guy in those photos as being Rudolfo and says he doesn’t know him…:)LOL Yeah right!

I doubt I will be able to buy the magazine here in NZ, so please give some pictures and information of Chris Pine (if there are any – hope so), on this site when the magazine gets published. I believe it may have been possible to get the issue of the Details magazine with Chris but it is very expensive and only a limited number are imported here and to one retail outlet here in Auckland, as far as I know. One of the problems of living so far away. Oh well…

I have to admit I don’t really like boxing as a sport, but it would certainly keep you fit. I prefer basketball, looks cool to watch and also keep you fit.

Please – the wait for the Star Trek sequel is getting just a tad intolerable especially when we have not heard much and the fact that the film was supposed to have started filming next month, May, but now has been postponed till August (Chris’s birthday month).

3. Dee - lvs moon' surface - April 26, 2011

And of course I’m not afraid to look ridiculous! … I had to be the first! … HAHAHAAHAH!

:-) :-)

4. Keachick - April 26, 2011

Yes, Dee, I do see the photos now. I am not sure why nothing would load, but my computer just sat there trying to load, trying to load, trying… if you get my meaning.

I assume that this new car is actually a Porsche. I guessed it might have been when we saw a video of Chris leaving the Lakers Games in that car but I am not sure that it is a Porsche. I just looked up the Porsche website and Chris’s car looked very like a model shown on the website…His car reminded of something I saw on Top Gear (UK) a few months back…

Anyway, I am miffed that I never got to drive his Honda S2000 before he traded it. Now, I really want to be able to be driven by yours truly, only yours truly, and to be able to drive said *Porsche*. One classy car for one classy man! Of course, I only live on the other hemisphere and about 14,000? miles away…but what’s a little distance?! :)

(Yes, I know what they say about dreams…)

5. trekker 5 - April 26, 2011

i can’t keep that goofy grin off my face as i look at that picture!! Chris Pine is beautiful. Sexy,i love him!! :) :) :)

6. Mel - April 26, 2011

Chris Pine has a very pretty face, but his body is only average for an actor in my opinion. He doesn’t look as fit as many of the other men on the list.

7. trekker 5 - April 26, 2011

#2,i’m geting tired of waiting 2!!!

8. Vultan - April 26, 2011

Chris Pine is a good actor, but what does the chick in the photo have to do with this article?

Continue with the slobber-fest, ladies….

9. Charla - April 26, 2011

Keachick- I wouldn’t mind to send it to you from here in the US- I am not sure of the costs for shipping- but I would get it to you for cost of shipping and magazine- not like on Ebay or whatever where they mark it up. I would pay for it myself if it weren’t for my college costs, family costs, etc. lol-

Let me know-

10. boborci - April 26, 2011

Hmmm. Sharp tooth aliens might = shirtless kirk…

11. Dee - lvs moon' surface - April 26, 2011

#10 – boborci

OMG! … until boborci is here … this matter is very important, definitely!

And what Mr. Bob Orci is talking about? … the alien from C & A looks like shirtless Kirk??? … boborci how dare you! … LOL… hmmm… not ignoring me, right? … + LOL

:-) :-)

12. Anthony Pascale - April 26, 2011

sharp tooth aliens?


13. Anthony Pascale - April 26, 2011

also Bob

Isn’t “ripped shirt Kirk” more the thing?

14. Dee - lvs moon' surface - April 26, 2011

I hope boborci not talking about the young Kirk … I’m not implying anything … LOL

:-) :-)

15. Dee - lvs moon' surface - April 26, 2011

#12 – Anthony Pascale

I was talking about this in another topic….about the alien in C & A… it seems that boborci not ignored me… but I do not want to be pretentious… hmmm … LOL

“Think of an angry grey gorilla with sharp teeth and no fur and you’re kind of getting there.”

:-) :-)

16. Let Them Eat Plomeek Soup - April 26, 2011

*drools profusely over computer screen*

Oh, excuse me there.

No, I’m kidding. But I must admit, he is one of the best looking guys I’ve ever seen.

Kellan Lutz is on this list? Eh…eh… (the twi-hards are celebrating somewhere…)

17. Keachick - April 26, 2011

#8 What chick? Just because he doesn’t look muscle-bound, like some others, just a bearer of beautiful, subtle muscle tone. With a narrow, straight body like that, how can he possibly be compared with a chick, a nickname for a young adult human female?

Now, guys, don’t get jealous or anything. It’s just that, well, it’s Chris Pine! What else can I say? As my daughter says, “Oooh, lala!”. She is developing good taste already…

Bob – why are we waiting? :) What about those sharp toothed aliens? Not “my captain”.

18. Harry Ballz - April 26, 2011


I think maybe Bob Orci is hinting that…just as there are people who are looking forward to seeing what the aliens look like in Cowboys&Aliens, there are many Trek fans (female) who are looking forward to seeing a shirtless Kirk/Pine in the next Trek movie.

I think he’s also hinting that they’ve written a scene to provide that to them!

Well, with turnabout being fair play, I look forward to a shirtless Saldana scene.

Oh, and lose the bra while you’re at it! Um, I mean for Zoe, not Chris! :>)

19. Keachick - April 26, 2011

#18 Oh Harry, I hope you are right. Bob – what about it? I have several ideas on how we might get to a see a shirtless Pine/Kirk and all of them good…:) Feel free to enquire.

20. Keachick - April 26, 2011

Well, to be fair, I suggest that the new Starfleet uniform consist of a G-string or bikini type underwear that covers the butt as well. See, I’m all for choice…:)

21. Retired Intelligence Officer - April 27, 2011

I think Orci is hinting that Kirk will get into a fight with a sharp toothed Gorn in the next movie and that his shirt will be ripped off!!

22. trekker 5 - April 27, 2011

Mr.Orci talking about Kirk shirtless,hummmm……….. :) good news?!

23. ST:EXP - April 27, 2011

awwwwww… shit. they excluded me from the list AGAIN

24. I'm Dead Jim! - April 27, 2011

As we’ve seen before, all it takes is a green chick for us to see a shirtless Kirk!

25. trekker 5 - April 27, 2011

i don’t care what it takes,as long as he does get shirtless!!!

26. trekker 5 - April 27, 2011

and hey,check out Zachary Quinto in the tralier for Whats Your Number on YouTube,or his FaceBook. its awesome!!!

27. Aurore - April 27, 2011

“As we’ve seen before, all it takes is a green chick for us to see a shirtless Kirk!”

Doesn’t count. It never does when he **willingly** removes his shirt.

That’s just me.

28. The Entire Crew Need to Buff Up? - April 27, 2011

I’ve posted this before and I’ll say it again. The crew need to bulk up a bit. If they are Starfleet’s finest, even elite, they need to have a little more muscle then they do now. Kirk’s shirtless scene in the first movie was horrible. He had virtually no muscle tone, no definition at all. Spock as well, but it should be noted that Vulcan physiology has them genetically stronger then ordinary humans without the muscle bulk.

Also, the other guys need to have better makeup. In IMAX/digital projection, you could almost count the pimples and moles on the faces of Chekov and Sulu. Better cover up, please, or you guys need to change your diet for better complexion.

29. trekker 5 - April 27, 2011

Aurore,hey!! its been awhile since i’ve seen u around the office!

30. Aurore - April 27, 2011

Hi, Olivia! How are you?!

Yeah, you know ; I’m kind of lazy.

Recently, Mr. Orci said I was a disgrace to our “organization”.

Well, he didn’t really,but, he could have.


31. Dee - lvs moon' surface - April 27, 2011

#18 – Harry Ballz

Well I was wondering how the aliens look like “C & A “… and of course I want a scene with shirtless Kirk in the sequel … but I suspect that boborci was teasing me a little … but I hope you ‘re right … about shirtless Kirk and Mr. Bob Orci hinting that!

#10 – boborci

By the way if the alien in C & A looks like shirtless Kirk … I think I’ll fall in love with alien … I ‘m always “Loving the Alien” … LOL and +LOL

:-) :-)

32. VZX - April 27, 2011

Clay Matthews! Go Pack Go!

33. Aurore - April 27, 2011

Despite what I said earlier, I would have loved a scene where Kirk, nonchalantly, removes a bathrobe, before walking graciously, towards his shower unit.

Unfortunately, given some of the negative comments the writers received for allowing Uhura to get undressed , in her own room at the Academy, I have mentally prepared myself for one shirt-fallen-in-the-line-of -duty-scene.

If we are to see him shirtless, I “fear” it will have to be for professional reasons only.

Fine. I’ll get over it.


34. Dee - lvs moon' surface - April 27, 2011

#26 – trekker 5

I saw the trailer and looks like fun … but I fear that ZQ just makes a cameo in the film … I hope I’m wrong!

:-) :-)

35. Dee - lvs moon' surface - April 27, 2011

Anton knows nothing about the script, too …


:-) :-)

36. Charla - April 27, 2011

Wow, I am nearly drowning in all this drool over here- Thanks Bob and Anthony for inciting sheer pandemonium! LOL You two with your shirtless Kirk imagery- :D

Keachick, if you have settled down a bit, if you still want the magazine, let me know. I could scan it in to my computer and send you the pages you’d be interested in… gotta help out a fellow trek fan- if you want.

Now, for my 2 cents. Wow does ZQ and the new Trek make Spock sexy!! There. I said it. Husband already knows my thoughts, so don’t think of blackmailing me! HA! (Just the character, not exactly ZQ. He brings alot to the character- )

Pine is nice looking, but give me brains AND braun… *fanning my face here* Not a word, Harry, not a word….. ;)

37. Charla - April 27, 2011

Oh and btw, I think NOT covering up blemishes make the movie more real. It also makes them look younger in a way since younger people are more prone to blemishes.

That and it is so typical of stereotyping- accept people for what they are and what they look like… not everything has to be beautiful in appearance to be beautiful!!

I’m all for clean skin and pretty complexion. However, the crew looked awesome to me, little flaws and all- barely noticed in fact- it’s a normal occurance almost everywhere in the world. (except Hollywood)

And the crew are in space, not Hollywood.

38. trekker 5 - April 27, 2011

wow Aurore! you remembered my real name! how sweet! Mr.Orci can be alittle hard 2 deal with some times,don’t know why,its not hes under the eye of tons of starved Trekkers or anything?! and #34,i hate 2 tell u this,but it is only a cameo. :(

39. Let Them Eat Plomeek Soup - April 27, 2011


Yes, I agree. wasn’t Anton Yelchin 17 or 18 in the Star Trek movie? It would make sense if he were suffering from acne…

And about the Vulcan physique here: Leonard Nimoy wasn’t all that muscular himself in TOS. In fact, he was kind of skinny. I think he and Z Quinto match up in that area.

40. Keachick - April 27, 2011

No, they don’t need to bulk up. Chris Pine looked just fine in the movie and he did have muscular definition in the scene with the green chick. The scene was way too short. Pine has a different body type/shape from William Shatner. Too much bulking up could make him look ridiculous and would not be that healthy for him in the long run. He is beautiful just as he is! Appearances can be deceptive when it comes to genuine fitness anyway.

Note: to writers and director – LONG, LINGERING SCENES required of Pine/Kirk in the (near) buff, thank you!

Thank you, Charla, for your kind offer. Perhaps the magazine may put something from its article online (esp. re CP). Fingers crossed. Just have to wait and see. Another week to wait…

This gal needs to have a good reason to lay down a minimum of NZ$16.50 (more if it comes in 3D) to see a movie, other than it being another Star Trek movie. No, Chris Pine, you are NOT just a lovely hunk of manhood, goodness me no. OK, drooling over…I think?

The make up people won the Oscar for their work in Star Trek 09. Hopefully, the same people will be doing it for the sequel. I do think, though, that they could lay off accentuating the acne scars on Chris Pine’s face. In real life, Chris is looking pretty good, as in it appears a healthy natural healing process has taken place. This could also happen for the alt. captain Kirk of the Enterprise.

41. Harry Ballz - April 27, 2011

36. Charla, my dear, thanks for sharing your turn-ons with us! Tell me, do you also like long walks on the beach and small furry animals?

(this is the kind of info a centrefold would share)

42. Keachick - April 27, 2011

#10 -“Hmmm. Sharp tooth aliens might = shirtless kirk…”

I actually think that Bob Orci may have been referring to the Pine/Gorn photo that Dee sent in another thread, but I can’t find it. I didn’t bookmark it. Ugh! Or, he’s got a scene already written for the next movie…”why are we waiting?” or so goes the ditty.

No use trying to blackmail me either. My “better half” (also called Chris…LOL, true) is well aware of my predilections as well.

43. Dee - lvs moon' surface - April 27, 2011

Wow … after all I love the moon’s surface and all the craters … lol… and director JJAbrams chose to work with the lenses perfect to show all the imperfections of the skin of the actors, right?… mostly Captain’s Fine… but I care for it??… OF COURSE NOT! … CP IS AWESOME, ANYWAY! … LOL

And I ‘ll be surprised if the magazine has any unpublished photo of shirtless CP!… of course I’d like to see!

:-) :-)

44. Aurore - April 27, 2011

Mr. Orci,

In addition to being shirtless, will James Tiberius Kirk be rolling on the ground

during combat , in the sequel?

Come on! The world ( that would be me ) is begging for it!

45. trekker 5 - April 27, 2011

i’ll beg with u!!

46. Dee - lvs moon' surface - April 27, 2011

#42- Keachick

It was … in”Star Trek’s Top 5 Threats To Earth” article …but I doubt that this is the case that Mr. Bob Orci was referring… maybe he can clarify this! … whatever!

:-) :-)

47. Dee - lvs moon' surface - April 27, 2011

#44 – Aurore

Yes why not… shirtless Kirk fighting with the Gorn on the ground… great fantasy! LOL

#45 – Keachick … I doubt it’s about this …

:-) :-)

48. Charla - April 27, 2011

No problem Keachick, just let me know- I understand about 16.50 for a magazine, it would need to have some very good material in it to justify the cost.

ROFL Harry, thanks, I needed a good laugh in between all these crazy storms!! Yeah a long walk on a beach would be nice along with a couple of tribbles. :) Perfect evening!

49. Harry Ballz - April 27, 2011

Charla, are you wearing those tribbles over strategic areas of your body?

50. Keachick - April 27, 2011

Thank you, Dee. That’s the photo – I can see how a Pine/Gorn could be a threat to earth…LOL.

#44 I guess we could see some rolling on the ground and other forms of combat that HAVE to result in a bad torn/ripped shirt! This is why he needs his menosian woman to wipe his brow, clean and massage all those tender pressure points…

Just as long as this Pine/Kirk does not tear another groin muscle and/or pull sacrum muscles (The Lieutenant of Inishmore). Yikes. Acting – a dangerous business. Who knew? This is maybe why Chris is doing Boxing, but will he do a Kirk-fu?. Now that is THE question.

51. Aurore - April 28, 2011


Maybe, one of these days ,we’ll learn more about that menosian woman.

What does she look like, I wonder. Has she already been described in greater

details ,somewhere on the site ,or,is she a well kept secret?

Can she cook?Does she snore at night?These are important queries!

P.S: Should the writers, director, of the sequel, be the only happy few allowed to

have the above questions answered (before June 2012), I’ll understand.

52. Jorg Sacul - April 28, 2011

Pine’s a good looking guy. I’m glad he’s playing Kirk.

53. Keachick - April 28, 2011

The Menosians are people I created for a story I wrote in 2000 called “Not of this World”. I believe I do have a copyright for this, even though I did not complete the story.

Then in August 2009, I wrote a Star Trek story outline where, within the alternate Star Trek universe, the Menosian planetary system is discovered, along with its people. These are pretty much the same people as in the first story. This story has not been published and unfortunately sits in the hard drive of our (mine and spouse) computer which is not working at the moment. I am using my sons’ computer. I have a printed paper copy of the Star Trek story, a story which needs to be fleshed out, edited etc. I have about three different story options as to how Kirk meets “Jasmia”, but the main point of the story is that they do meet and form a good, solid, healthy relationship.

The Menosia worlds (two planets, Menosia and Aosia) would probably read as being a bit fanciful, even namby pamby by some people’s standards, but that is OK by me. They are small beautiful, intelligent worlds, where the other main inhabitant is a lifeform called a nuli (pron. noolee, for want of a better word. The word has kinda stuck). It is all at once animal, vegetable and mineral and in fact far more than the sum of its parts. The humanoid menosians have evolved with the nulis over countless millennia. Some nulis have a capacity for space travel, which also allow the menosians to do some off-planetary exploration of their own.

(Don’t ask me to explain all of the xenobiology, astrophysics, and other extra-ordinary technobabble that makes some of these things possible. They just are!)

A small number of menosians are born healers, empaths and telepaths. One such character is a young male called Suranai, who is also a friend of Jasmia. In my story, Suranai saves Kirk’s life.

Menosians do not have any kind of military. Suranai, born a healer, cannot injure or kill anyone, lest he die himself. The planetary system is small, mostly undetectable, off most star charts. However, some of the more “local” alien races, have discovered that the planets have quite a lot of rare ores and minerals etc, which are what allow some nuli to space travel…

I love Star Trek, like so many others. It is a show that manages to stimulate the imaginations of ordinary people like no other television show, hence all the novels, fanfiction, television spin-offs and movies. Star Trek 09 had that effect on me, as did the new captain Kirk, played by Chris Pine.

To the writer(s): It would be lovely if my love story (which is basically what it is, I suppose) could become part of the new movie. You know how to contact me if you need more information – Anthony knows.

54. Keachick - April 28, 2011

as in Anthony Pascale should know…

55. Keachick - April 28, 2011

#33 – “I would have loved a scene where Kirk, nonchalantly, removes a bathrobe, before walking graciously, towards his shower unit.”

How could I have missed this? Been a bit distracted… Do you mean he is filmed from the back or the front going towards the shower unit? I’m not much of a butt person. I’m a front and centre person. OMG. I think I have just repeated myself, I am sure I have written that before somewhere and it had to do with the one and only yours truly, Pine/Kirk, “my captain”. OK, now, deep breaths, deep breaths…

56. Dee - lvs moon' surface - April 28, 2011

#55 – keachick … again … I hope … it works here …LOL

… outside the rabbit hole … look and breathe, if you can! +LOL

:-) :-)

57. Aurore - April 28, 2011

“…, but the main point of the story is that they do meet and form a good, solid, healthy relationship.”

I could definitely handle seeing Kirk in such a relationship.

However,will he be granted the right to fall in love?
If so, will it be with a crazy woman , or a robot , or a person who has to “leave this world” ( or him, for whatever reasons) at the end of the story?

That’s the question.

58. Aurore - April 28, 2011


I meant that, he would be filmed front the front when removing his bathrobe.
And, from the back, while walking towards the shower unit.

“I’m not much of a butt person.”

Sorry to hear that!


59. Aurore - April 28, 2011


Thank you for answering my questions regarding Jasmia.

60. Charla - April 28, 2011

49 ROFL Harry- No I love the little tribbles and wouldn’t use them like a garment~ lol besides I would bet that PETA exists in the future and would ban such an idea. :D

61. Harry Ballz - April 28, 2011

Charla, if you want me to see you in the nude, that’ll be no tribble at all!

62. Keachick - April 29, 2011

Charla – don’t be sorry…:) I just love looking at beautiful men’s front upper torsos and CP definitely fits that description. But getting a full head to foot back view of that man who no longer wears even a bathrobe is certainly better than nothing. I want though a long, lingering view from all angles. That could work…:)

I think I know what the new well-groomed beard Chris is sporting at the moment is about. It is all about being a basketballer. I’ve just seen a news item about a NZ basketball team, the Breakers, doing well and all those guys have the same kind of facial fuzz as Chris has at the moment. I found myself cracking up as I watched the news item… In the case of Chris Pine, I guess you could call it Hot Fuzz!

And no, Chris, you are not just a hot hunk with hot fuzz!

63. Keachick - April 29, 2011

Sorry. I meant to say Aurore.

64. Charla - April 30, 2011

Thanks but I will pass, Harry!! You had me speechless for a couple of days! LOL
