This celebrity rose to fame after appearing in a box-office hit film franchise.
Years ago, he captivated many with his sophisticated and clean-cut appearance and was deemed the “most handsome.”
However, his more recent look is the opposite, which has sparked mixed reactions online, with some people pointing out that he looks unrecognizable. The star even changed his way of dressing and discussed the inspiration behind that.
Photos of a famed actor with an unrecognizable appearance prompted various opinions online. Some were curious about his new look, while others compared him to a homeless person.

In February 2022, he stepped out in Los Angeles in a tight white tank top, flaunting his toned arms, bushy gray beard, and thick, wavy salt-and-pepper hair. This new look was a stark contrast from the clean-cut appearance he maintained during his “Star Trek” fame.

Upon seeing this, some online users stated that he seemed like a homeless man. “Looks like he could fit in with the homeless people on the streets there. I guess times are tough for everyone,” said one person.


Another suggested, “He’s going for the homeless look. Someone toss him a bar of soap, he likely needs a scrubbing.” Two more users echoed the same sentiments while one wrote, “Looks 55 and homeless! Great character actor!!”

Meanwhile, other people expressed curiosity, with one individual writing, “He was one nice looking guy, I wonder what happened?” Another asked the same question, adding, “It looks like he got stranded in the middle of the jungle for a year.”

“He used to be so hot, now he looks like he’s recovering from something,” someone else reminisced while making comparisons to the star’s current look. Moreover, others remarked that he appeared unrecognizable at first glance. “I’m impressed anyone recognized him. He looks raggedy,” wrote one.

One X user posted a collage of throwback images of the celebrity. “Bad procedure to keep up “Hollywood standards”? Was so handsome. Almost don’t recognize him now. Sad!” said the user. After seeing the star’s raggedy look, another person asked if that was really him, adding, “Didn’t recognize him…”

Although some had been critical of his appearance, others still perceived him to be attractive. One X user called him “One of the most handsome men on Earth.” Someone else said he voted the star as the “Most handsome man in cinema.”

Another admitted she thought the celebrity was a regular guy growing up but that has since changed. “Now, all of the sudden, he’s the most handsome guy I’ve seen,” penned the user. One other person concurred, “He is definitely the most handsome.”

This actor was at the height of his career in the 2000s. He had several guest roles in television shows and made his feature movie debut opposite Anne Hathaway in “The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement” in 2004.
This was followed by other stints in films and TV shows, but the celebrity rose to superstardom after being cast as James T. Kirk in the hit franchise reboot of “Star Trek” in 2009.

From rocking sophisticated, clean, and attractive looks over the years, to looking barely recognizable today, here is the 2000s heartthrob who was deemed “most handsome” before.

“This whole film, what I love about what we did is it’s the joy of everything, of design, of clothes, of cinema, of film, of shooting on film, of characters and weird characters,” Pine revealed.

His look for the movie premiere was inspired by his style icon, Lapo Elkann. “The short shorts were definitely inspired by Tom Selleck. There’s no lie about that,” said Pine.

Pine, who currently has longer hair, divulged that he is now experimenting with early 80s Harrison Ford looks. He explained, “So I really like a penny loafer with like a Levi jean and a blazer, I think that’s pretty fly. And Tom Selleck. So I’m in an ‘80s thing.”

Pine, whose publicist made fun of his long hair once, has also been candid about his misfortune when it comes to his appearance. He disclosed in May 2024 that he lost a role due to his “awful skin.”

“I was going out for The O.C., a teenage melodrama. I can understand that they wanted to have pretty people doing pretty things. It’s no fun going out for roles when you have bad skin. It was one of the most traumatic points in my life,” Pine admitted.

Besides losing out on an acting gig due to his skin, Pine has experimented a lot with his appearance over time. He has gone bald and has sported a beard from time to time. However, now it seems he is in a phase of life where looks do not matter as much to him.
