'Extra' Exclusive: Paula Patton Dishes on Her New BF
Earlier today, “Extra's” Tanika Ray sat down in Beverly Hills with actress Paula Patton to discuss her latest film, the action-packed thriller “Traffik,” in which she not only stars, but also serves as producer.
Paula split from ex-husband Robin Thicke years ago, but has she moved on? Paula revealed, “I have a boyfriend now. I haven't called anybody a boyfriend. He's my boyfriend!”
Paula and her new beau have been dating for “a month.” She added, “But when you know, you know. I love him.”
Though she declined to name the lucky man or reveal how they met, she teased, “If you have a kid and you have a basketball game, look at the daddies... It's kind of a suburban romance. He's got kids, I got a kid. It's one of those!”
As for the key to co-parenting son Julian, 8, with Thicke, Patton shared, “To live in the now. You have to forgive. That was then, this is now. You don't have to hold on to anything. You are not doing your children any service... Bring as much peace and harmony to their life as you can."
"Traffik" is Paula's first foray into producing. She commented, “I always wanted to make films. It's always been a passion that I wanted to make happen and finally, it did.”
The film, which also stars Omar Epps, Roselyn Sanchez and Laz Alonso, hits theaters Friday.
