Surname causing dating woes for Teminator’s daughter

Being the daughter of Arnold Schwarzenegger must be hard enough without being saddled with a surname that makes dating almost impossible.

Katherine, 21, told Harper’s Bazaar magazine during a recent interview that she had considered legally changing her famous surname when she entered the University of Southern California as it made dating so difficult.

She told the publication, “I thought of changing it because, especially for dating, it's impossible. It's something I deal with every day, and I am hyperconscious about it.

"When I got to college, people—much more guys than girls because girls don’t give a crap about bodybuilding—were coming up to me, and it would automatically jump to a conversation about my dad and weight lifting or how to do a proper bicep curl. It's like, 'Do you want to date my father, or do you want to date me? Like, I can arrange that for you.”

Katherine – who is about to become a senior at her university - has also recently had to cope with the very public split of her parents, Arnold and Maria Shriver, and the ongoing divorce battle.
