Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver attend dinner for son's friend

Arnold Schwarzenegger and his estranged wife Maria Shriver reunited for dinner on Thursday (14Jul11) as they joined a party for a friend of their son Patrick.

The Terminator star split from Shriver in May (11), days before he confessed to fathering a lovechild with the couple's maid over a decade ago.

Former newswoman Maria Shriver filed for divorce earlier this month (Jul11), but they proved their break-up has been amicable by showing up for the graduation meal at Italian restaurant Toscana in Brentwood, California.

A source tells X17online.com, "They kept their distance... They were there for the benefit of their son but there was no reconciliation going on. They exchanged a few words cordially though."

The pair, which attended with Patrick, arrived and left separately.
