Some women have all the luck–actress Paula Patton is beautiful, talented, married to sexy soul crooner Robin Thicke, and mother to their adorable little boy Julian Fuego. Patton’s career is also on fire; the star of the highly anticipated Mission:Impossible–Ghost Protocol shows off her assets on the December issue of Complex Magazine and reveals that her shyness almost prevented her from auditioning for the role of super spy Jane Carter:
“At first I felt like I shouldn’t waste my time, because I just didn’t see how they’d actually cast me. I didn’t think of myself being hired to be in this. Then they kept calling, so I figured, “OK, I have nothing to lose. It would be cool to be a spy. [Laughs.] And it’d be amazing to work with Tom. If they’re calling, there has to be a reason—you have to have more faith in yourself.”
Patton also dished on her red-hot romance with the hubby:
“Your wife should be your sex therapist, or if you’re not married, your girlfriend should be your sex therapist. If she’s not, then things aren’t going so well.”
Let ’em know Paula!
