Jonathan Evans: What!? I want to do a post on this. “One Word of Advice for Chris Pine and His Inexplicable Facial Hair.” The copy would just read: “Shave.”
Tyler Coates: That is.
The fucking weirdest beard.
I have ever seen.
Jonathan Evans: hahahhaa
Tyler Coates: I had to write that in haiku form.
Jonathan Evans: I honestly cannot tell if it connects at the chin.
Tyler Coates: Sure looks like it.
Jonathan Evans: I think it’s just that he has stubble and the pattern of his hair color/growth is darker/heavier at the chin:
Tyler Coates: Huh.
Jonathan Evans: So weird.
Tyler Coates: You could just publish this exchange. “What Is Happening to Chris Pine’s Beard: A Discussion.”
Jonathan Evans: That’d be pretty funny.
