Chris Pine clearly has a thing for buxom brunettes. After splitting with love Dominique Piek earlier this year, the Star Trek Into Darkness actor was spotted enjoying the company of swimsuit model Amanda Frances at Bootsy Bellows in West Hollywood May 24. The casually-dressed duo held hands as they exited the trendy nightclub and waited for their ride.
“He is very attracted to her,” a source tells Our employees of Pine and Frances. “They are having a good time. He”s very excited about his career right now, too.”
During a May 16 appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Pine confirmed he was “single” and said he hoped to find a girl with “intelligence, beauty and a sense of humor. . . You have to be able to carry a conversation after the initial attraction kind of dies down.”
Hopefully Pine can overlook Frances” attraction to another A-list star. In the March issue of Maxim Espana, the New Orleans native named Magic Mike hunk Channing Tatum as her celebrity crush. “Yum!” the 5-foot-10 beauty said of the star, who”s expecting his first child with wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum.
