May 7 (UPI) -- Chris Pine hosted this weekend's edition of Saturday Night Live.

The Star Trek and Wonder Woman star used his opening monologue to clarify who he is, so the audience would not mistake him for other famous, 30-something-year-old actors named Chris -- such as Pratt, Evans and Hemsworth.

"As many of you know, I have a movie coming out this weekend. It's called Guardians of the Galaxy," Pine said to audience applause. "See, you see, I knew that was going to happen. I'm not in Guardians of the Galaxy! That is Chris Pratt. I am Chris Pine. Look, Leslie knows who I am. Leslie, can you help me out?"

SNL cast member Leslie Jones then came out on stage, smiling and saying, "You're Captain America. Chris Evans."

"I'm Chris Pine," Pine corrected.

"Hemsworth," Jones tried.

"Pine," Pine emphasized once again.

"Pine! OK, that's good enough," Jones said as she snapped a selfie with the actor. "Thank you, Thor."

Pine then sang the song "Not That Chris" -- to the tune of Billy Joel's "Uptown Girl" -- in front of a poster with photos of himself and the other three actors with whom he is often confused.
