Paula Patton (who is married to Robin Thicke) covers the latest November 2011 issue of Jezebel Magazine. In the issue, Patton talks being bi-racial and acting alongside Tom Cruise in the latest Mission Impossible.
On Getting The Lead Role:
“The truth is that I really didn’t think that I was going to get it. I remember them calling me and asking me to come in and read for the director, and I was like, ‘Come on, guys, don’t waste my time!’”
Her Reaction On The Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol
“I just got to see the movie finally, a week ago, and I was blown away…It is very gritty and, somehow, the most impossible seems possible in the coolest way.”
On Growing Up Bi-Racial:
“I remember in high school I felt uncomfortable in revealing to have a white boyfriend. I am a black-skinned and I have been told a thousand times: “You think, therefore, to be better than us?” I have always stressed to feel proud of being black. Never said to be mixed or other such things.”
