Great news, Pine Nuts: Chris Pine is single again! The hunky actor appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Wednesday, Nov. 26, where he confirmed that he's currently unattached.

DeGeneres brought up the topic of his dating status, asking: "So, you're handsome, you sing, and are you single?"

The Star Trek actor moaned, "Oh, man!" before confirming: "I'm a single man." (Pine, 34, was most recently linked to beauty queen Íris Björk Jóhannesdóttir — not to be confused with the singer Björk! Prior to that romance, he was linked to model Dominique Piek, from whom he split in 2013.)

Pine has been rather open about his relationships in the past, telling OUT magazine last June: "It's really hard in our business to maintain something… For me, right now, it'd be really hard."

The busy star also briefly discussed his buff body with DeGeneres, after she projected a hot shirtless picture of him. "Ellen, that's a lot of fake tanning," he noted. "For the movies, you gotta look healthy."

The flattery continued Wednesday when the talk show host brought out a "Pine Nut" (which is a clever term for the actor's fan base) from the audience of her show. The star, who will play Prince Charming in the Disney musical Into the Woods, grabbed a microphone to serenade the lucky fan with several lines from Frank Sinatra's "Summer Wind."
