Paula Patton Calls Success 'A Bit of Luck'


Beautiful Paula Patton is an actress to be reckoned with this summer -- the Los Angeles native is hot on the silver screen in Kevin Costner's "Swing Vote," and in the horror film "Mirrors," opposite Kiefer Sutherland.

Patton attributes her sudden success to "a bit of luck," adding, "You can be sitting at home, unemployed for months and months and then something comes up and another script comes your way and they want you."

Paula also talked about life with her Grammy-winning husband Robin Thicke, who keeps her grounded in the show biz arena. "For us, it's good that we've been able to experience this together because it is a brand new world. And it's nice to have somebody to talk to about it."
