Chris Pine may be used to the deafening screams of fangirls everywhere, but don’t count on his new girlfriend’s family to be on his list of admirers.
His new bikini model gal pal Amanda Frances doesn’t quite get two thumbs up from her mom. In fact, this mama bear’s got some fighting words for the Star Trek Into Darkness star.
“I never heard of him before,” Pamela DiPietro told Celebuzz.
“If he broke my daughter’s heart, they’ll be hell to pay. A little Italian mom coming out there and kick his a**,” she added, with a chuckle.
In fact, (insert surprise face here) she doesn’t quite see where this leading man gets his Hollywood hunk status.
“I didn’t think he was that good looking. He’s got too much hair on his face and big eyebrows,” she laughed.
“But I guess nobody is really good enough for her.”
DiPietro admits that she saw the photo of Pine — who just called it quits with Sport Illustrated model Dominique Piek — and Frances holding hands while strolling out of Hollywood hotspot Bootsy Bellows May 24, but she had no clue her 23-year-old daughter was dating the superstar. (Mostly because she says her daughter knows she wouldn’t approve.)
“I don’t want her seeing him. I don’t want her to date celebrities. I’m not happy about it,” she said.
“We’re really close. I just want her to come home,” she said of her hometown of New Orleans, Louisiana. “I’m worried about that kind of lifestyle, I want her to live a normal life and not be a celebrity.”
Her mom says Frances has been asked out by quite a few celebs, but this is the first time she got caught in the hand-holding act.
“She’s very picky. She only had one boyfriend in high school. So she’s dating this guy, he must be okay,” said DiPietro.
“It doesn’t surprise me, but I hope it dies down fast.”
She adds that her daughter mingles in celebrity circles, but she’s not looking to capitalize off Pine’s fame.
“She just wants to be a model, she doesn’t want to be famous,” she said. “She’s a smart girl. She’s very grounded. I always say she’s an Asian wise man reincarnated.”
Well, that’s good news, considering the sexy actor recently opened up to Ellen DeGeneres about his single status and his perfect woman: “Sensitive, beauty and sense of humor,” he said. “You have to be abe to carry a conversation. When lust dies down there has to be the thing that engages you.”
But like many Hollywood romances, this young love may end just as quickly as it started. Pine could very well be pining for his new girl from afar — given that she’s planning on studying in Spain for six months, according to her mom.
“She’s only 23 and he’s 32,” she said, “and it looks like he dates a lot, from one supermodel to the next.”
