AceShowbiz - Actor Chris Pratt has sparked rumours of a budding new romance with Arnold Schwarzenegger's daughter Katherine, after they were spotted on a weekend picnic date.
The Guardians of the Galaxy star separated from actress Anna Faris last summer (Aug17) and they filed identical divorce papers in December (17), with both citing irreconcilable differences for their split.
Now it appears Chris is getting back into the dating game, following a park outing with Katherine Schwarzenegger in Santa Barbara, California on Sunday, June 17.
In images obtained by TMZ.com, Chris and Katherine were photographed laughing as they sat opposite one another and tucked into sandwiches and other nibbles.
Sources tell the publication Chris played the perfect gentleman, picking the 28-year-old up at her Los Angeles home and driving them to the coastal city.

Katherine, an interior designer and lifestyle blogger, is the eldest child of the Hollywood action man and his ex-wife, newswoman Maria Shriver.
The date is reportedly Chris' first since his eight-year marriage to Anna crumbled.
He recently opened up about the change in relationship status in a candid chat with Entertainment Weekly, admitting he wasn't enjoying being a bachelor again - or being a single father to their son Jack, five.
"Divorce sucks," the 38-year-old told the magazine in April. "But at the end of the day, we've got a great kid who's got two parents who love him very much. And we're finding a way to navigate this while still remaining friends and still being kind to one another. It's not ideal, but yeah, I think both of us are actually probably doing better".
While Chris is adapting to the dating game again, Anna has already moved on - she began romancing cinematographer Michael Barrett in October (17).
