Chris Pine is an American actor with an estimated net worth of $20 million. He was born on August 26, 1980 is Los Angeles, California. His father is actor Robert Pine. He was one of the actors in the much-loved show CHiPs and his mother is Gwynne Gilford. His mother was also an actress for many years before she game up the job to become a psychotherapist. It seems that acting runs in his family, too, as both his maternal grandparents were both in the business – kind of. Anne Gwynne was an actress and his grandfather is Max M. Gilford, who was an attorney that was eventually the president of the Hollywood Bar Association. It wasn’t a huge surprise to anyone in Chris Pine’s family when he made the decision to go into acting.
Before he began his professional career, however, he was a college student who graduated from the University of California, Berkley. His degree is in English, though he did spend a year studying in London. When he was done with his college degree, he made the decision to further his acting career by attending the American Conservatory Theater. He wanted to be good at what he did and follow in the footsteps of his family, who were all so successful in the business. Chris Pine didn’t do much in terms of his acting career until he was done with college. He graduated in 2002 and he began acting in 2003. His first role was in a much-loved television show called ER.
It was a guest appearance, but he was good. That role led to others on hit television shows and even movies. His first movie was “Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement,” and he was the man that everyone fell in love with during the film. Appearing next to Anne Hathaway was good for his career, and he’s never looked back since. While he hasn’t had a role that has made him a breakout actor just yet, Chris Pine has been in so many movies and guest starred on so many television shows that he is easily recognizable and people do love him. He is consistent and good at what he does, and he’s even been nominated for an Emmy as of 2016.
As far as Chris Pine’s personal life is concerned, he likes to keep things as private as possible. If he has a lady friend of any nature, we are unaware of it. He has never been involved in any high-profile relationship to our knowledge, and he has not made any reference to his interest in getting married or having kids. He was arrested in 2014 when he failed a breathalyzer test in New Zealand while driving, forced to pay a fine and he did lose his privileges of driving in New Zealand for six months. He seems quite focused on his career at this point in time, and his personal life appears to take a back seat to that in every way.
