Get out your party hats, Pine Nuts! Actor Chris Pine, known best for his role as Captain James T. Kirk in the new [Star Trek](tag:3299704) trilogy of films, celebrates his 35th birthday today.

Born in Los Angeles, Pine was raised by actors -- his father co-starred on CHiPs as Sergeant Joseph Getraer -- and graduated from the University of California, Berkeley in 2002 with a bachelor's degree in English.

Pine broke into Hollywood with his performance as Anne Hathaway's love interest in The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement. Since then, he's enjoyed a variety of roles, which eventually led to co-starring with Denzel Washington in Unstoppable.

Most recently, Pine showed off his charismatic knack for comedy in the [Wet Hot American Summer Prequel](tag:1450640), First Day of Camp. He's rumored to debut as part of DC's Extended Universe in [Wonder Woman](tag:45787) as ace pilot Steve Trevor, best known as the heroine's love interest, and will return to the Captain's chair in [Star Trek Beyond](tag:817262) in 2016.

An extremely happy birthday to you, Chris Pine! Have a great one.
