Chris Pine - Chris Pine gets dating tips from mum

Chris Pine says his mother taught him to be a gentleman.

The 'Star Trek Into Darkness' hunk has been brought up to treat women with the utmost respect and always opens car doors for his date, as well as demonstrating his impeccable table manners over dinner.

He said: ''[My mother] always told me to take my elbows off the table, so that if I ever had dinner with a queen, I would know how to eat properly.

''But she also taught me basic things about being a gentleman, like opening car doors. Especially in Los Angeles, I think people lose those small gestures that harken back to a different time but are still mutually appreciated by women and men. Those little things are just nice.''

The handsome star - who split from model Dominique Piek last spring - would be open to trying online dating because he thinks website like Tinder, which only connects users who find each other mutually attractive, help break the ice.

Chris explained: ''I have a couple of buddies who use Tinder. Whatever eases the process is great, since it can be awkward and uncomfortable meeting someone.

''It's the same jumping-off point, 'Oh, she's cute' or 'He's cute,' and then you start talking. Ultimately, it comes down to the connection you have with that person once she's in the room.''

The 33-year-old actor also opened up about his former co-star Lindsay Lohan, who he starred with in romantic comedy 'Just My Luck' in her 2006 heyday.

He told the new issue of Cosmopolitan magazine: ''She's had a rough go of it. I'm sure the trials and tribulations that she's been through have taught her plenty.

''Our business loves comeback stories. From Drew Barrymore to Robert Downey Jr., there's a long list of people who have faced their troubles, wildly overcome them, and succeeded. If anyone can do that, it's Lindsay.''
