Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Daughter Katherine Writes Book On Body Image

Looks like media-savvy runs in the family! Katherine Schwarzenegger, 20, the oldest child of California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and journalist Maria Shriver, has written her first book. Titled Rock What You’ve Got: Secrets to Loving Your Inner and Outer Beauty, it’s aimed at helping young girls deal with body image issues and to gain confidence in themselves.

Katherine tells USA Today that she had her first body image crisis when she was in the fourth grade, and wrote her book to let young girls know that they are not alone. “It was the first time I was aware of my body and compared what I looked like to what other girls looked like,” she says. “It freaked me out…I want to let girls know they are not alone with the changes and doubts about their body.”

Katherine credits her parents for helping her through her issues, and for making sure she and her siblings had a normal childhood. “They were very protective of having us in the public eye when we were younger,” she emphasizes. “We didn’t go to Hollywood premieres. We practiced community service. We went to school and camp like normal kids.

“My mom was always good with me. She always checked in with me. I had the best relationship with my mom. I still do. I talk to her four times a day…I also have an amazing relationship with my dad…I talk to him about boys, about going out, about what I’m interested in, about business.”

    Here’s hoping her anorexic mother reads it.

    That’s not Katherine. It’s her sister, Christina.

    She’s got a mother who looks like a corpse and this child writes about how she overcame her body issues? What a joke! And I’m sure she got a book deal just because she’s a 20 year old with no connections and the publisher just thought the world needed yet another book about a child learning to love herself.

      We really need another senseless book by a young women with little life experience and taking of all things in college, communications! Talk about brain waste…why would anyone take a vague senseless subject like that—it’s a given that you should be able to communicate in your native language if you’re in college—I’d be more concerned about her undernourished brain than her pudgy overnourished body. Why? why? why? I’m so tired of “celebutantes” giving their silly views.
