I get to see A Wrinkle in Time today. I GET TO SEE A WRINKLE IN TIME TODAY. Chris Pine is not going to be the most memorable part of A Wrinkle in Time. Like in Wonder Woman, he is probably going to be about the seventh best thing about this movie. I don’t think he cares, as he shouldn’t. But some actors would. Do you think Mark Wahlberg would be okay with being upstaged by child actors and characters named Mrs. Which, Mrs. Whatsit and Mrs. Who? This is one of the many reasons why Chris Pine is The Best Chris. He knows his place.
Chris Pine may not be the best thing about A Wrinkle In Time, or even the thing we should be talking about when we talk about A Wrinkle In Time but since promotion for the film is in full swing, we get to see more of him. Right now, The Best Chris is rocking a clean-shaven face. Lainey thinks he looks puffy. I’ll admit that I prefer a bearded Pine and maybe he is looking a little weathered but to me, he still looks handsome as hell. This blue suit paired with those baby blues? Come on. He is still so FIIIIINE. The other Chrises could never.
So far, the most disappointing thing about the A Wrinkle In Time press tour is that not a single reporter has asked Chris Pine and/ or Mindy Kaling about the rumours (started by me based on nothing but my day dreams) that Chris is the father of Mindy’s baby. At the very least, their answers would be hilarious. Or they would both be appalled and offended at the very suggestion. It’s a gamble but I think it’s worth it. To anyone reading this who have interviews with Chris Pine and/ or Mindy Kaling coming up, please ask. Do it for the culture.
Thank you to everyone on Twitter who has been looking for clues to prove my Mindy Kaling baby daddy theory. Kendra tweeted me this picture where the sexual tension is so glaring, I think Zach Galifianakis is uncomfortable.
Where are Mindy’s hands? We may never know but we sure can guess. My daydreams are covered for weeks. Thanks Kendra!
In all seriousness, Ava DuVernay’s A Wrinkle in Time is so important and I can’t wait to see it today (have I mentioned that I’m seeing it today?) but I also can’t wait for every kid to see a little black girl nerd go on a sci-fi adventure and be the hero. Little Kathleen is already crying.
I’ll leave you with a quote Chris Pine gave to ABC News that is so relevant and so true and even more proof that he’s the best.
"I think this film is another great reminder that you are enough as a kid. You are enough… Yes, you'll grow up but your voice now is just as powerful as it will be later on. And when you work together you can achieve miraculous things."
