Patrick Schwarzenegger may have only signed with L.A. Models in April, but his career is already taking off. The 17-year-old son of former Terminator turned California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger can presently be found lounging moodily and shirtlessly above Los Angeles’ Sunset Boulevard on a billboard for Hudson Jeans.
The billboard is part of Hudson’s Fall ad campaign which features fellow genetically blessed celeb progeny Georgia May Jagger. According to Women’s Wear Daily, the two will star in three short films inspired by Andy Warhol’s “Screen Test” shorts from the sixties, all slated to debut on September 7th via the brand’s Facebook page. The two will also “participate in a Q&A on Twitter about the ads, along with [photographer David] Lipman; photographer Francesco Carrozzini, who shot them; Hudson chief executive officer Peter Kim, and creative and design director Ben Taverniti.”
Good for Patrick and perhaps even better for his clothing line, Project 360. Back in April, he told Details modeling “isn’t going to be [his] permanent job” and that he was just doing it to “inject some capital” into his collection. He also told the magazine his eye was “set on Miley [Cyrus]“, in which case this billboard probably gave him the biggest leg up of all.
