IT’S LOVE! Looks like Chris Pratt and Katherine Schwarzenegger’s romance is heating up fast!
Just a few weeks after the newfound couple were spotted out and about together, a source now tells ET that the two have “gotten serious, quickly.” “[They] went from casually dating to spending much more time together,” the source says. “Chris and Katherine have introduced one another to their family and friends, and have been almost inseparable when they are free.
“For the most part I can sit back and laugh at the ridiculous headlines because they have gotten more and more absurd. I guess they’re feeding into some sort of need the public has, but I focus on my work, my friends, my animals, and how we can make the world a better place. That other stuff is junk food that needs to go back in its drawer.”
On the”biggest misconception” about herself: “Oh, boy, there are so many. Let’s see. I’ll just Google myself and find out…Oh, look, I’m having a $100,000 revenge makeover!” The never-ending tabloid stories can be “pretty crazy. The misconceptions are ‘Jen can’t keep a man,’ and ‘Jen refuses to have a baby because she’s selfish and committed to her career.’ Or that I’m sad and heartbroken. First, with all due respect, I’m not heartbroken. And second, those are reckless assumptions. No one knows what’s going on behind closed doors. No one considers how sensitive that might be for my partner and me. They don’t know what I’ve been through medically or emotionally. There is a pressure on women to be mothers, and if they are not, then they’re deemed damaged goods. Maybe my purpose on this planet isn’t to procreate. Maybe I have other things I’m supposed to do?”
She’s experienced her “fair share of sexism in the media”: “Women are picked apart and pitted against one another based on looks and clothing and superficial stuff. When a couple breaks up in Hollywood, it’s the woman who is scorned. The woman is left sad and alone. She’s the failure. F that. When was the last time you read about a divorced, childless man referred to as a spinster?”
What’s next for Jen: “There have been moments when I would just love to get out of Dodge and move to Switzerland—or somewhere—and start anew. Just have this sh-t behind me. Does it really matter? Are we really doing anything? What is my life’s purpose? Every seven years I try to sum up what I am doing and what I want to make my focus. I’m trying to make better choices. I went through a period of saying yes to projects that I shouldn’t have, but I felt like, “How dare I say no?” Now I’m trying to get better at saying no and to be a part of projects that actually, really matter…. [but] I’m grateful as long as people still want me to come to the party. I think I’ll always want to keep acting as long as there’s a desire for me to do it. As long as I’m fulfilled in other ways creatively, spiritually and all of that stuff, I know that I could do this until they put me in a home.”
