Before we begin, I want to apologize to Robin Thicke for openly ogling his wife, Paula Patton. The sexy starlet stars as a grieving and stressed out wife in the upcoming drama, Disconnect.
It would make sense that Patton would develop into a major Hollywood star, she literally grew up across the street from the 20th Century Fox lot. She graduated from Hamilton High School before later attending UC Berkeley and later transferring to USC Film School where she graduated magna cum laude. Before she graced us with her beauty, Patton made documentaries for PBS, later working as a producer for the Discovery Health Channel.
She eased slowly onto the other side of the camera with two small roles, first in Hitch opposite Will Smith and Eva Mendes and later opposite Outkast members Andre Benjamin and Big Boi in Idlewild. Her big break came when she won the role in the sci-fi thriller, Déjà Vu opposite Denzel Washington.
Patton has continued to evolve starring in Swing Vote, Mirrors, Precious and most notably opposite Tom Cruise in Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol. She also starred in the romantic wedding comedy, Jumping the Broom. Patton has two high-profile projects coming up as she reunites with Washington in 2 Guns and headlines the cast of the romantic comedy, Baggage Claim opening this fall.
Playing a very unsexy role as a neglected wife grieving the death of her child in Disconnect, Patton uses the opportunity to turn in another solid performance in this well told story. When not working, Paula Patton-Thicke is providing a ray of sunshine for her fans – and I hope Mr. Thicke will accept my apologies for our fandom!!!
