Actress Paula Patton covers the November 2011 issue of JEZEBEL magazine, which is based out of Atlanta. Patton, 35, is in heavy demand these days due to her coveted role as a beautiful secret spy in the action thriller Mission: Impossible, Ghost Protocol, starring Tom Cruise.
The film hits theaters Dec. 15. The 'Precious' star is well-known in the black community, but this role is expected to place her squarely on Hollywood's A-list.
Despite her many successes, Patton, who is married to R&B singer Robin Thicke, and has a toddler, Julian; reveals she prefers living in a fantasy world, because she "doesn't like reality very much."
This seems strange coming from a woman who, on the outside, seems to have everything. "I love my son; I love my husband; and then I want to take them into my dream world," she told JEZEBEL.
"My dream is Paris, and good food, and beautiful sunsets, and no worries, and no stress and life floating on a cloud!"
