Chris Pine, 32, and Dominique Piek, 27, reportedly began dating in the fall of 2011. Pine, who has previously been linked to leading ladies like Olivia Munn and Audrina Patridge, showed off the South African supermodel on the Cannes red carpet for the first time. Since then, Pine and his model girlfriend’s public outings have been few and far between, and the Star Trek star has been relatively private about his personal life.

Chris Pine and Dominique Piek’s split “was a mutual call,” a source close to the couple confirms. “They both needed their space. She has been very busy with her modeling work and traveling. He’s got Star Trek and his other projects keeping him busy.” But although Pine and Piek insiders maintain that the breakup was mutual, we can’t help but wonder whether there was another woman involved.

When it comes to Pine's potential new girlfriend, the American actor prefers his women to be funny. “I do like dating cynics – they tend to be incredibly funny,” Pine told Men’s Health U.K. last year. “Dating someone on the opposite end of the happy spectrum teaches you an incredible amount of patience,” he revealed.

Perhaps we should be on the lookout for one of Hollywood’s sarcastic sirens.
