Chris Pratt & Katherine went on a social-distancing walk with her family

Chris Pratt and Katherine Schwarzenegger go for a walk the extended family

When it comes to fresh celebrity gossip, there isn’t much going on (minus the regurgitated Swift-West-Kardashian feud). There are no premieres, no awards shows, no red carpets and no big scandals. The celebrities are pretty much isolating like everybody else, although I’ve noticed something in the past two weeks especially: so many celebrities still want to be seen! They want to still find a way to provide content. So they go for hikes or bike rides when they know the paparazzi will be there. They make videos or Instagram Live streams or they just tweet a lot. It’s kind of nice? I mean, I’m grateful for it.

So here are some photos of Chris Pratt and Katherine Schwarzenegger out and about in Brentwood this weekend. They were with Katherine’s family – her mom, Maria Shriver, Katherine’s brother Patrick and her sister Christina. I get the feeling that Chris Pratt has been fully embraced by the Shriver-Schwarzenegger clan, and he’s likely been absorbed into that family. Which is probably what he wants. Whenever I’m writing a story about Chris and Katherine, I’m always struck by how well-suited they are for each other. He was looking for a larger family unit and he got it. Also: I appreciate that everybody is social-distancing even while they’re taking a walk together.

Pratt’s animated film Onward (a Pixar film) was released in early March, but its box office was obviously affected by the pandemic. He was apparently filming on the latest Jurassic Park movie, but the production was put on hold during the pandemic. Just FYI – no one really knows when all of these film productions are going to restart.

Also: Chris and Katherine did a joint reading of her children’s book on social media to benefit Save With Stories, which helps feed kids through Save the Children and No Kid Hungry during the school closings and pandemic.

    Surely the paparazzi shouldn’t be still working?

    I can understand the hikes and bike rides; it’s easy to go stir-crazy at home, even if you have a huge house.

      They work alone and have a long lens so they can keep 100 yards away from everyone if they wanted. They can literally just sit on a bench alone and wait for celebrity hikers to come through the hills. Especially easy if they’re assigned the job and know where/ when to be somewhere. Heck they could be sitting in their car waiting for them and roll the window down and click.

    Thanks for keeping us entertained during these stressful times. What might be fun is to go ito the vault and do a ‘best of’. It’s fun to see how much celebs change. Especially partner-wise.

    Maria over at Lainey gossip had a short but interesting write up on her recently. Made me rethink this whole ‘nice girl persona’ of hers.

    Don’t take social social-distancing walks people. You’re not going to stay 6ft the entire time (it’s not human [or k9] nature while talking/walking) plus 6 feet is not even a safe minimum. Has anyone seen videos of how far sneezes can travel? Doesn’t California have a group maximum yet? We’re at 5 people maximum for a gathering here, and with their security they’re over that number (security is trained to get out of the way for pap pictures if their client wants the publicity – I can’t see Maria not having it at least)

    In Australia only 2 people not from the same household can go out together. So this wouldn’t fly here now and there are big fines. They aren’t all living together.

    Serious question about social distancing — I haven’t seen any of my family in 2+ weeks. I’m on Day 17 of staying in and just getting things delivered as I need them, as are some of my family members. Since we’ve been isolated past the 14-day mark, are we safe to visit each other (occasionally) at this point? Or no? That part hasn’t really been touched on in the media (probably for fear of people visiting each other too soon).

      I’ve been wondering the same thing, but at this point I just feel like longer is better.

    Katherine also recently called out everyone that attended the Brentwood Farmer’s Market this past weekend. There were THRONGS of people and it was impossible to observe social distancing. Shameful! I applaud her for that.
