Chris Pine’s cut hair was the focus of discussion during a recent interview with Esquire Magazine, and the actor revealed how his publicist told him the hair made him look like Rachel from Friends.
Last year, one of the most anticipated events was the “Don’t Worry Darling” premiere at the Venice Film Festival. However, the event was overshadowed by a strange incident between co-stars Chris Pine and Harry Styles.
During the event, several people in the audience captured the moment Styles returned to his seat. Pine was seated next to him and at some point, it appeared as if Styles spat on Pine’s hand.
Social media was immediately thrown into a frenzy as several users dissected the clip from different angles. Rumors of a rift between the cast of the film also traveled far and wide.
Styles went on to joke about the incident during a concert in Madison Square Garden on September 7. However, Pine recently laid the rumors to rest during an interview with Esquire on Wednesday.

Chris Pine’s Cuts Hair After Rachel From Friends Comparison
Apart from settling the spitgate controversy once and for all, the Esquire Magazine interview also focused on Chris Pine‘s hair and cut. The interview was shown on TikTok, and at some point, Pine got asked why he cut his hair.
Answering the question, the 42-year-old actor recalled how he pulled all the stops for his Venice Film Festival debut. However, he got something of a rude awakening when he was told he looked like Rachel from “Friends.”
Rachel Green was a character played by Jennifer Aniston in the popular 90s series “Friends.” Pine simply could not get over the comparison. While showing off his fresh cut, Pine said:
“I thought I was looking pretty fly.”
“The hair was long, everything was happening, and my publicist said that I look like Rachel from ‘Friends.’”
Pine went on to say he could not “unhear it.” It was the first day of his first visit to Venice and it started on the wrong foot. From that moment, Chris Pine’s hair was doomed for the chop and he executed the plan after his Venice engagements.
The famous Rachel Green hairstyle was created by Aniston’s long-time stylist Chris McMillan. Interestingly, the hairstyle nearly enjoyed as much fame as the famous long-running series.
