Looks like actor Chris Pratt may be off the market for the time being.
Photos emerged online last week showing the “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom’’ star having a picnic with Katherine Schwarzenegger, 28, the daughter of actor and former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and journalist Maria Shriver.
Naturally, the internet began speculating about the pair’s status, and now E! News is reporting that the 39-year-old Pratt is “smitten’’ with Schwarzenegger, the author of a handful of books including 2014’s “I Just Graduated … Now What? Honest Answers from Those Who’ve Been There.’’
Pratt, best known for his role in “Guardians of the Galaxy,’’ and actress Anna Faris split up last year. They have a son, Jack, who is nearly 6.
E! went on to report that Shriver, who knew Pratt through mutual friends, may have had a hand in setting the pair up. However they met, Schwarzenegger and Pratt looked casual and chummy in the picnic photos, laughing and sharing food on adriondack chairs in a Santa Barbara, California park.
This is, of course, far from the first time that a young member of the Kennedy clan has been linked to a star.
Back in 2012, Katherine’s cousin Conor Kennedy had a summer fling with Taylor Swift, bringing the pop princess along to Fourth of July celebrations at the Kennedy compound in Hyannis Port.
