While in the audience at the Academy Awards, cameras panned to Pine with a single tear falling down his beautiful face after Common and John Legend's moving performance of their Oscar-winning song "Glory" from the film Selma. And just like that, a meme was born!
"What's annoying is, when I cry -- I mean, I don't look great in the best of times," James Corden told his Into the Woods co-star on Tuesday's Late Late Show. "When I cry I look disgusting. Look at this! Have you ever seen anyone look so handsome whilst they're crying?"
Despite such a handsome cry, Pine, 34, admitted that he's having trouble living that moment down. "It was a wonderful performance and it was really moving," he said, defending his reaction to the performance. "And a lot of people gave me a lot of crap for it -- a single tear."
