New couple alert! Chris Pine and Annabelle Wallis are boyfriend and girlfriend, as revealed by an exclusive source.
“Chris and Annabelle are dating! She was seeing someone else when they met,” the insider revealed to Us Weekly magazine. “They kept it casual at the beginning. Chris was very attentive and wooed her to get her attention away from the other guy.”
Chris, 37, and Annabelle, 33, sparked rumors of an alleged romance after they were seen together arriving at London Heathrow Airport on Thursday, March 29—and that’s probably the closest we’ll get to an official confirmation from this pair.
Pine rarely talks about his relationships. In fact, the actor refused to discuss his love life when he was interviewed by The Hollywood Reporter in 2014, telling the publication “that’s something that I don’t really want to talk about.” However, that same year, in November, Chris confirmed to Ellen DeGeneres that he was single at the time.
As for Wallis, more recently, in a June 2017 interview for the Sydney Morning Herald, she opened up about her reasons to keep her private life away from the spotlight. “I love the person I love, but it means so much to me that I like to keep it safe. I have nothing to hide. It’s just that when you have people in your life that you care about, you get protective of them and it’s not about you anymore.”
Yeah, yeah, we know—fans of Wonder Woman would’ve preferred Gal Gadot to be Chris Pine’s new beau. But given that she’s happily married and has a child, Annabelle Wallis seems to be the next best option. We approve!
