Pine, 25, is a pro at playing Prince Charming. The son of CHiPs costar Robert Pine, he romanced Anne Hathaway in The Princess Diaries 2 and now stars with Lindsay Lohan in Just My Luck.
ON SMOOCHING LINDSAY LOHAN She's a great kisser. At the beginning I thought, "Do you do tongue in the movies?" I didn't know so I stayed strictly PG-13.
ON LUCKING INTO ACTING In college I was a total nerd and super shy. My buddy was big in the theater department and he invited me to try it. I never had any romantic visions of acting. I've seen it when it's really good and when there's no money.
ON THE TOUGH LIFE OF A PRETTY BOY Friends tease me all the time. It's mostly for my hair. They'll say, "Your head's getting bigger!" Anything they can think of to make me feel like a schmuck. Or if I ever have a hard day, there's a lot of, "Oh, poor Chris—you had to kiss Lindsay Lohan. You had to kiss Anne Hathaway. Awww."
ON CHANGING HIS IMAGE I just played a neo-Nazi assassin [in Smokin' Aces]. I had a shaved head and blacked-out teeth. I killed Ben Affleck and did a ventriloquism act with his mouth. It was awesome.
