A lot of celebrity couples have decided to go on their separate ways in the past couple of months. Their fans are obviously unhappy with this news but it is also giving people a chance to see who will have a new beau first.
There will also be two questions that people would have when a celebrity couple separates, that is if there is a chance for them to get back together, or if they will start dating another celebrity. This is likely the case of the newly separated actor Chris Pratt, who was seen getting comfortable with the daughter of an iconic actor after being separated.
Pratt and Schwarzenegger went on a picnic date
It was in October last year when Guardians of the Galaxy actor Chris Pratt posted a joint announcement saying that he and his wife, actress and comedienne Anna Faris are separating. The two share a son named Jack and in the statement, they said that they actually tried to make things work between us but it simply didn’t.
They also said that they are trying to stay positive for the sake of their son. The former couple actually met on the set of Take Me Home Tonight and they got engaged just a year later. Rumors of the split have been roaming around for months since Pratt hasn’t been seen wearing his wedding ring but it wasn’t until later that they officially announced it.
Some sources said that the two had been very unhappy with one another, especially with the fact that the actor has been working so much with filming Guardians of the Galaxy, The Avengers, and Jurassic World.
Anna and I are sad to announce we are legally separating. We tried hard for a long time, and we’re really disappointed. …
In December 2017, when Faris revealed that she has been feeling so hurt. She admitted this on her podcast, Anna Faris is Unqualified, she explained how difficult it was for her to stay in LA and raise their child while Pratt was busy filming in different parts of the world.
Chris, on the other hand, admitted that it had been tough that they had tried so hard to make it work but in the end they just both kept on hurting, which then led to the legal separation.
Every Ending Is A Beginning
Just a couple of months after the announced separation, Faris started dating cinematographer Michael Barrett. It was unknown as to when exactly the two started dating but they have been spotted a lot especially after the separation announcement. The two met on the set of Overboars and had been inseparable since then. Pratt, on the other hand, was linked to actress Olivia Munn earlier this year, but she shut the down rumors of her and Pratt being involved with one another, by taking a screenshot of a text message exchange that she and Faris had.
Pratt, however, was latest seen spending Father’s Day not with his son, but with the daughter of former California governor and actor Arnold Schwarzenegger. 28-year-old Katherine Schwarzenegger was spotted laughing while having a picnic date with the Jurassic World actor. TMZ reported that Chris actually picked up Schwarzenegger from her place and drove her up by the coast.
This was apparently the very first time that Pratt was seen on an official date with someone after filing a divorce with Faris. Schwarzenegger is actually an interior designer and a lifestyle blogger, she has been spotted in a couple of red carpet events because of her famous father, but she has never been a part of the entertainment industry.
She has made a couple of television appearances just like her most recent one on the Today show, wherein she was interviewed about being the ambassador of American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.
She is actually the eldest daughter of veteran actor Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shiver. There is no confirmation as to what exactly the status is between the Schwarzenegger and Pratt but some sources said that they are enjoying themselves and trying to keep things low. In an interview with Live with Kelly and Ryan, Pratt said that he would spend his Father’s Day with his son, along with going to church and have a pool time. Obviously, he managed to squeeze in a little picnic date with the Schwarzenegger, that wasn’t left unseen by the prying eyes of the paparazzi.
