Patrick Schwarzenegger Graduates From USC, Arnold And Maria Shriver Pay Tribute
Patrick was among the class of 2016 graduates at USC’s 133rd commencement ceremony. Though separated since 2011, both Maria and Arnold came together for the special day. And each took to Twitter to celebrate their son.
Maria posted the above family photo on Saturday, writing, “Morning after memory. Off he goes. Well loved, well educated. #graduation.” She previously tweeted on Friday, “The one the only @PSchwarzenegger graduated!! So proud of him. Love this pic. Onward.”
Arnold shared his own picture with Patrick on Twitter on Saturday afternoon. “Patrick, I’m so proud of you. You have grown into a great man – physically and mentally,” the former California governor wrote. “Congrats. I love you.”
Patrick replied a short time later, retweeting his dad’s post and writing, “Danke papa. Couldn’t of done it without yah.” He also received a congratulatory message on Twitter from family friend Tom Arnold, who tweeted, “Congrats @PSchwarzenegger dad’s bod,mom’s beauty,my comic genius & yet UR a complete original & your own man. #USC16.”
In the celebrity world, aside from his family’s fame, Patrick is probably best known for Miley Cyrus, though he has been working on an acting career in addition to his schooling. He appeared in an episode of “Scream Queens” last year, and will be in the upcoming movies Dear Eleanor, Midnight Sun, and North. As a USC graduate, he follows in the footsteps of older sister Katherine, who received her diploma in 2012, just months before Patrick started. Check out the graduation photos below!
