Chris Pine amuses himself with facial hair

Chris Pine sees fragrance as a way of providing memories.

Chris Pine grew a beard to make himself smile during a boring press tour.

The American actor looks handsome no matter what, and rarely sports the same look for long. Part of the reason why he mixes it up so much is to keep himself entertained during the gruelling schedules of promoting films, with features like Star Trek Beyond recently released.

"I’ve been having to do so much press and I’m just getting so f**king sick of it but just to kind of make myself giddy, I started off with a beard for this last press tour," he told Pret-a-Reporter. "And then I went to a goatee, then I went to a handlebar, and then I got sick of all that and then did clean-shaven and then grew my sideburns out. Now I’m rocking this kind of '50s Nashville country singer vibe so I went super clean shaven. Anything to just make the day go by and give myself a reason to smile."

Chris' smouldering appearance isn't just seen on the silver screen; he's also the face of the Armani Code fragrances, by Giorgio Armani. In each of the video advertisements, the star - who turns 36 on Friday (26Aug16) - is seen walking through a party being watched by various women, as he makes his way towards one beautiful lady.

Discussing his own preference for scents, Chris explained he believes fragrances are an art form.

"It’s what you want to smell like, it’s memories that make you smile, or are resonant of times in your life, it can remind you of music," he explained. "If you’re a lover of scent it’s a very kind of particular and evocative thing. For me personally, just like in my home, I’m looking at my incense right now. I like kind of natural, woodsy earth tones."
