Chris Pine Sings & Talks INTO THE WOODS On JIMMY KIMMEL LIVEInternationally recognized screen superstar Chris Pine visited Jimmy Kimmel LIVE last night and generously showed off his singing skills in anticipation of his hotly anticipated big screen role in the stage to screen adaptation of Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine's beloved fairy tale-themed musical INTO THE WOODS, co-starring Meryl Streep and Johnny Depp and set to be released this Christmas.

During his appearance, Kimmel informed Pine that recent guest and INTO THE WOODS co-star Meryl Streep had praised Pine's singing abilities, calling him "a great singer," to which Pine incredulously responded, "She said that?! She told you that?! You're not BS-ing me?! Do not BS me, Jimmy!"

After releasing a nervous laugh and a sigh of relief, Pine then clarified the exact extent of his vocal abilities, humbly relating, "I'm a shower-singer, for sure."

"Because I have to tell you something, too: if you think you are a good singer in the shower... it's a big fat lie!" Pine amusingly shared with Kimmel.

"The acoustics of bathrooms are incredible!" Pine concluded.

Following that, Kimmel actually coerced Pine into crooning a tune for us to judge his heretofore unheard instrument by - with surprising results!

Accordingly, Pine then launched into the song which he originally auditioned for director Rob Marshall with - the Frank Sinatra standard "Fly Me To The Moon".


And, INTO THE WOODS? Soon! Christmas Day, to be exact!
