Actor Chris Pine has sparked rumours of a blossoming new romance with model Amanda Frances after they were photographed holding hands in Los Angeles on Friday (24May13).

The Star Trek hunk, who recently split from Sports Illustrated stunner Dominique Piek, appears to have moved on with the Maxim Espana beauty - they were snapped leaving Bootsy Bellows nightclub in West Hollywood together and hopping into a waiting car, where they cuddled on the back seat.

A source tells, "He is very attracted to her. They are having a good time. He's very excited about his career right now, too."
