WHAT HAS PAULA PATTON DONE?
After graduating from college at USC, Paula worked on documentaries before starting her acting career with a small part in “Hitch” with Will Smith and Eva Mendes. After several small roles in feature films, her breakout role came in 2006 when she was cast alongside Denzel Washington in the science fiction film, “Déjà Vu.” This led to larger parts in 2008's “Swing Vote,” and critically acclaimed “Precious” (2009) in which Paula played the teacher and mentor for C. Precious Jones, the film's main character. In 2010, Paula was cast as the assistant district attorney on NBC’s Law & Order: Special Victims Unit but had to pull out after one episode when she got the job of Jane Carter, Tom Cruise’s co-star in “Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol.”
Paula followed up with roles in “Just Wright,” (2010) and “Jumping the Broom” (2011). As Paula’s career started to take off so did her public profile. She was featured in a Complex’s magazine photo shoot that solidified her as one of the Hollywood’s sexiest actresses.

In 2013, Paula played Denzel Washington’s love interest in “2 Guns,” her second role with him and finally, displayed her own two guns:
While promoting the film, Paula talked about her husband’s controversial music video for his hit single "Blurred Lines" which prominently featured female nudity. Thicke had to release a cleaner version in which the women were clothed so it could be aired. Paula said it was her idea to also release the original video because, "I like it more than the clothed version. I don’t know what to tell you ... I mean, listen, when girls look like that?” She went on to say that the uncut version made her wanted to "jump (Thicke’s) bones." Thicke told Howard Stern that parts of "Blurred Lines" is about Paula saying, "It has this 'she’s a good girl, but she wants to be a bad girl.' My wife is Ms. Good Girl. Gradually over our marriage, I’ve turned her into a bad girl.” You can get a glimpse of Mr. Thicke turning Mrs. Thicke into a bad girl in Thicke’s “Love After War” video in which the couple appears together:
After Thicke’s famous and bizarre twerking performance with Miley Cyrus at the 2013 VMA Awards, he was caught in a mirror image grabbing the behind of another woman when posing for a photo at a nightclub.
The woman, college student Lana Scolaro told Life & Style magazine that Thicke pursued her during post-VMAs festivities at a nightclub but because she knew he was a married man, she first told him “no.” She claims he then told her that Paula had encouraged him to talk to Scolaro and when Thicke and Scolaro left to go to another party at a suite at the Greenwich Hotel, Paula joined them. “I don’t think he cared what she thought,” Lana said in the article, “I was with him the whole night!” However, Paula doesn't seem too worried. Her rep told Life & Style, "It's just a girl looking for some attention. Paula and Robin aren’t concerned."
