Well, if she's gonna turn to anyone, we totally expect it to be the "consciously uncoupling" star!
Because, DUH! Who better to understand Beyoncé's pain than the Goop author?!
Well HELLO, Captain Kirk!
It's hard to focus on anything but Chris Pine's blue eyes that leave you weak at the knees - let alone the general supreme sexiness of all his other parts - but in the Star Trek star's new cover story for Out Magazine, he reminded us that beyond his boner-inducing good looks, he's also an incredibly intelligent, open, and all-around cool guy!
“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. [When Quinto came out, he was] 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.”
Aww! Seriously SO sweet!
And speaking of Jonathan, Chris ALSO revealed that he would have no problem playing a gay character, as he almost joined his friend's boyfriend in Ryan Murphy's upcoming adaptation of The Normal Heart, until his busy schedule prevented him participating:
“I would have done that in a fucking heartbeat. 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.”
We VERY MUCH agree, Chris!
Here's hoping that we'll get to see you take on that kind of role someday soon!
Ch-ch-check out all the photos from his Out spread (above and below)!
