Furs by the pool !
Paula Patton is sitting pretty in her latest spread with Vanity Fair. Paula is arguably one of the most beautiful women in the industry today. Back in 2012 Paula was named one of People Magazine’s Most Beautiful People. Despite her undeniable beauty the actress admits that she struggled with her looks during her younger years. In fact after college she worked behind the camera and it wasn’t until she was 27 that she opted to switch sides of the lens.
I felt uncomfortable in my own skin, so I liked the other side of the camera. It took until I was 27 to say, ‘You only have one life to live, so you might as well go and see if you can act.’ Within a year, she landed a part in Hitch, with Will Smith.
Behind that pretty face is something really complicated. Off camera Paula is working through the motions with her husband Robin Thicke. The couple of 23 years has separated. But is it official? Is it really over? Paula says:
We’ve known each other since we were teenagers. All I can tell you is there’s a deep love there—always was, and always will be.
Patton grew up in Los Angeles, where she met Thicke, at an 18-and-under nightclub when she was 15 and he was 14. Before their first kiss, he sang Jodeci’s “Forever My Lady” to her in his dad Alan’s living room. “He wasn’t my first kiss but he was my first lots of other things.”
