Hey, world, meet Patrick Schwarzenegger -- the genetic product of the Kennedy dynasty and the Terminator.
The eldest son of former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver, the promising young man gets the profile treatment from Details this month. From shirtless yoga to under-18 entrepreneurial efforts, here are the essentials on Patrick:
Service first: The 17-year-old enjoys high school parties and tweeting at eligible females as much as the next guy, but he’s well aware of the expectations placed on him. “My mom raised me with the idea of doing public service, and I definitely want to go in that direction. But I also want to follow in my dad’s entrepreneurial footsteps,” he said.
His after-school job pays handsomely: His clothing company Project360, which donates a percentage of proceeds to various charities, has a full menswear collection on the horizon and a mid-five-figures net from 2010, according to the magazine.
He’s billboard-friendly: To raise Project360’s profile and, admittedly, his own, the celeb spawn has signed with agency L.A. Models. He’s allegedly being pushed for Ralph Lauren and Armani campaigns. Patrick aims to “get comfortable in front of the camera” but insists that modeling “isn’t going to be my permanent job. There’s a lot of other things I want to do.”
He’s a flirt: While he confirms he’s just reunited with an ex-girlfriend, Schwarzenegger wouldn’t mind a famous partner down the line. His aforementioned tweeting includes winks at the likes of Kendall Jenner, Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez -- he’s even labeled them “girls for the future.”
