Chris Pratt and Katherine Schwarzenegger: Spotted on a Date!
After the shock over the news that Chris Pratt and Anna Faris had split, people started to wonder who would be next to date the comedic actor and totaly Hollywood studmuffin.
Despite rumors, he’s not dating Olivia Munn. But now we know who he’s seeing.
This gorgeous but much younger woman is Katherine Schwarzenegger.
TMZ spotted Chris Pratt and Katherine Schwarzenegger on a picnic date in Santa Barbara.
Per their report, Chris picked up Katherine from her home and then drove her up the coast.
As various outlets have noted, Chris has been known to flirt from time to time.
But this is the first actual date that anyone has seen him on since his split from Anna. So it’s no surprise that he went above and beyond.
We can only imagine what a fun, and funny, date the two of them had.
Katherine has some very obvious Hollywood ties, thanks to her father, Arnold Schwarzenegger.
But he’s honestly not her most famous relation.
Through her mother, broadcast journalist Maria Shriver, she is the great-niece of John F. Kennedy.
Katherine does not actually work as an actress or even directly as a politician.
Instead, she is an author, an interior designer, a lifestyle blogger, and an animal welfare activist.
Notably, she is 28 years old — ten years younger than Pratt, who is 38.
But while 10 years is kind of a lot of age difference for a couple, they’re both very much adults. It’s not a big deal.
By all accounts, it sounds like Chris and Katherine enjoyed their picnic lunch.
It’s unclear how much they’ve spoken before this, but the general consensus seems to be that the two are still getting to know one another.
That shoulsn’t be difficult. They’re both beautiful and charming people.
But it may be a little strange for Chris Pratt to get back into the dating game after so many years of marriage.
We wouldn’t be surprised if they take things slow, even if they end up being a long-term couple.
Another potential difference will be the dynamic — assuming that Chris and Katherine continue dating and don’t go their separate ways.
For years, Chris Pratt was mostly just “Anna Faris’ husband.” People knew him as “that guy from Parks and Recreation.”
(Where, for the record, he was hilarious, both in delivering scripted lines and in improvising some truly brilliant jokes)
Anna was the big name.
Then, Chris was cast as Peter Quill in Guardians of the Galaxy.
To take on the roll, he transformed his body from its soft form into the hardened hunk we’ve all seen in three Marvel bluckbusters.
Suddenly, he was the big time movie star. Anna Faris was his wife.
When the two of them split, many joked on social media that this was precisely why they never wanted their boyfriends or husbands to “get hot.”
But Katherine and Chris would have this dynamic — her from a famous family and him as an action movie star — from the beginning.
That might help their stability in a relationship, in the long run.
But let’s not get too far ahead of ourselves.
Right now they’re just dating as the world braces itself for the premiere of Chris’ newest film, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.
