Paula Patton has her ‘moments of jealousy’ with Robin Thicke

Paula Patton has solidified herself as one of Hollywood’s new ‘it-girls,’ with the arrival of her second film this year, Baggage Claim.

Patton stars in the romantic comedy as Montana Moore, a flight attendant on a mission to find a fiancé in thirty days. The film, directed by David E. Talbert, features a stellar cast of actors including Boris Kodjoe, Taye Diggs, Derek Luke, Djumon Hounsou, Jill Scott, LaLa Anthony, Trey Songz, and Adam Brody.

In an interview with theGrio’s Chris Witherspoon, Patton talked about her latest film role, and opened up about whether or not her husband, Robin Thicke, gets jealous of her on-screen romances.

“We’ve dreamt the same dream together, him a singer, and me an actress, since we were kids,” Patton said. “So we know that it’s part of the deal. But it would be a lie to say that we both don’t have our moments of jealousy, and I’m honestly scared of the day that he’s not a little jealous. It wouldn’t be normal for someone to see the person they love kissing someone else.”

Patton and Thicke have been married for eight years and have a 3-year-old son named Julian.

Last week celebrity moms Halle Berry and Jennifer Garner testified in an California court, urging lawmakers to support legislation that would help them protect their children from the paparazzi that harass them daily.

Patton weighed in on the hot topic of anti-paparazzi laws, and said there are bigger problems in the world than being a child to a celebrity.

“There’s so many bigger problems in the world. Being a child to a celebrity is kind of like gravy. You have a lot more opportunities… you’re really lucky,” Patton said. “I’d be far more concerned with children that aren’t able to have food on their plate and a good education and have healthcare.”

Baggage Claim is distributed by Fox Searchlight Pictures and hits theaters nationwide September 27.
