Fixed up: Chris Pratt, 39, and Katherine Schwarzenegger, 28, were set up in part by her mother, Maria Shriver
The Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom actor dined on sandwiches, potato chips and apples, the magazine reported.
Katherine – whose siblings are Christina, 26, Patrick, 24, and Christopher, 20, as well as half-sibling Joseph Baena, 20 – is an author who has written three books over the past decade.
Those titles include last year’s Maverick and Me, a children’s book; 2014’s I Just Graduated … Now What? Honest Answers From Those Who Have Been There; and 2010’s Rock What You’ve Got: Secrets to Loving Your Inner and Outer Beauty From Someone Who’s Been There and Back.
