When it comes to Chris Pine’s dating life, the actor prefers to keep his relationships out of the spotlight. But while the Star Trek star has done a pretty good job of this, his relationship with Peaky Blinders actress Annabelle Wallis was the topic of much conversation among fans. The pair seemed perfect for each other, but they unfortunately split in early 2022. Here’s an inside look at Chris Pine’s relationship and split with his ex-girlfriend.
They Began Dating In 2018
Born in Oxford and raised in Portugal, Annabelle Wallis knew she wanted to be an actress ever since she was a kid, and it wasn’t long before she was working steadily. Wallis is perhaps best known for her portrayal of Grace Burgess on the hit BBC drama, Peaky Blinders. She also had a role in the Showtime drama, The Tudors, and has been in popular movies like The Mummy, Annabelle, Annabelle: Creation, and Malignant.
Prior to meeting Pine, Wallis was involved with Coldplay frontman Chris Martin. While it briefly seemed as though the couple was trying to rekindle their relationship, they ultimately split in 2017. Less than a year later, in the summer of 2018, after plenty of speculation from fans and press alike that they were an item, Pine and Wallis made it clear they were a couple.
The duo took it slow over the next few years, which gave Pine ample time to woo the British beauty. The Wonder Woman star says he has his mom to thank for teaching him how to behave like a dashing gentleman on dates. “My mom always told me to take my elbows off the table, so that if I ever had dinner with a queen, I would know how to eat properly,” he said in a 2013 interview with Cosmopolitan. “But she also taught me basic things about being a gentleman, like opening car doors. Especially in Los Angeles, I think people lose those small gestures that harken back to a different time but are still mutually appreciated by men and women. Those little things are just nice.”
It seems the couple got really close during quarantine, as they were frequently spotted stocking up on groceries (wearing masks, of course) and riding bikes together. And when the holidays came around, Pine decided to spend the special time with Wallis. “It’s the first time in 40 years I haven’t been with my family, but I will be with my girlfriend and her family out here,” he revealed in a 2020 interview with Extra. “Taking this year as it is, what it is… I’m going to open myself up to new rituals… Everyone is happy and healthy, whether they are in my family, my circle of friends, that’s all I can ask for.”
Chris Pine And Annabelle Wallis Split In 2022
Everything seemed to be going swimmingly for Pine and Wallis, and due to their low profile, there were no signs of trouble in paradise. Despite the fact that fans of the couple speculated about a possible engagement, it was announced in March 2022 that the pair had broken up after four years together. Not much information is available about the details of the couple’s split, but a source did tell Us Weekly that they had been broken up for several months by the time it became public knowledge.
While we’re hoping the split was amicable, there doesn’t seem to be a trace of Pine on Wallis’s Instagram profile. Instead, she has been sharing stunning photos of herself living her best life. Hopefully, this means she’s faring well in the wake of the split.
