Paula Patton will certainly have moviegoers questioning whether or not she is Hollywood’s next romantic comedy queen, with the release of her new film Baggage Claim this weekend.

The Jumping the Broom actress stars in the movie as flight attendant Montana Moore, who finds herself with only 30 days to find Mr. Right to accompany her to her younger sister’s wedding.

Patton opened up about how she chooses her film roles during an interview with theGrio.

“I don’t like to make rules,” Patton said. “I change my mind so often that I wouldn’t want to put into print or document that ‘I won’t do this or I won’t do that,’ because it all depends on the context. For me it’s not about doing a great role in a bad movie, it’s about wanting to be a part of a great movie, and then hopefully having a character that’s something that you can really sink your teeth into.”

The 37-year-old actress shows off her athletic side, running in high heels throughout much of Baggage Claim.

Patton says she’s always been athletic, and has fun throwing herself completely into a role.

“I always played sports when I was a kid. I’ve always been athletic,” she said. “I’m a very physical person that way. I ran track in high school and played soccer. I like to just throw myself completely into a role. It’s just fun.”
