Of course this has sparked talk of a romance between the 22-year-old country crooner and Arnie's 18-year-old son, but there might not be any fireworks just yet -- Taylor could just be a big fan of the Kennedys.
While celebrating the holiday with Patrick, she got to hang out with some of the Kennedy clan, which counts Patrick and his mother Maria Shriver as members. Taylor has made it known that she's a big admirer of Ethel Kennedy and that she was very excited when she got to meet Robert F. Kennedy's widow.
If Taylor and Patrick do become more than just friends, it wouldn't be the first time that a celebrity has dated a relative of someone they greatly admire - Nicolas Cage took his Elvis Presley obsession to the extreme by marrying Lisa-Marie Presley. But just like Taylor, he's just one of the many stars that has been linked to the offspring of another celebrity.
Actor Alex Pettyfer is engaged to Lisa-Marie's daughter Riley Keough, whom he met on the set of the movie "Magic Mike" (hopefully Alex doesn't have an Elvis obsession), and Patrick Schwarzenegger's 22-year-old sister Katherine Schwarzenegger was reportedly pursuing 18-year-old One Direction singer Harry Styles earlier this year. She got to meet the British boy band member while 1D was filming their "iCarly" appearance, and apparently Hazza ended up rather fancying her - after their meeting, he immediately started talking about what it would be like to have Arnie for a father-in-law. Interestingly enough, Taylor and Harry also met earlier this year and started texting each other (so Taylor and Katherine might not be BFFs).
Rocker Rod Stewart's daughter Kimberly Stewart had a short fling with actor Benicio del Toro which resulted in the birth of a beautiful baby girl, and musician Phil Collins' daughter Lily Collins and "High School Musical" star Zac Efron had a spring fling that ended last June. Lily has also dated her "Abduction" costar Taylor Lautner, while earlier this year there was a crazy rumor that Zac was being pursued by Rumer Willis and her mother Demi Moore.
Then there's Zoe Kravitz, the daughter of rock star Lenny Kravitz and actress Lisa Bonet. Last June she became the envy of ladies everywhere when it was reported that she had been dating her "X-Men: First Class" costar Michael Fassbender since 2010. However, she was spotted sharing a cab with "Gossip Girl" star Penn Badgley in July. She and Fassy were photographed back together in September, but hopefully they were just meeting up as pals for lunch - Penn and Zoe looked very loved-up just a few weeks later in October.
Zoe's behavior in going from Fassy to Penn to Fassy and back to Penn might seem a little questionable, but the judgment of Meryl Streep's daughter Grace Gummer is even more worrisome. Last year she started dating "Almost Famous" star Billy Crudup, who might be most famous for leaving a pregnant Mary-Louise Parker to be with Claire Danes. Hopefully the "golden god" is better behaved these days.
So do you think that Patrick and Taylor would make a cute couple?
