Queen Latifah and Paula Patton

Rumored lesbian lovers Queen Latifah, 45, and Paula Patton, 40, defended actress Zoe Saldana from critics of her role as Jazz legend Nina Simone. Saldana, who is Latina, is catching flack for wearing blackface as dark skinned Nina Simone in a biopic.

“I think Zoe Saldana’s a great actress. So I am looking forward to it,” said Latifah. “She is of African descent, I don’t see why she shouldn’t play the role. I just want to see it.” La's rumored lover, Patton, echoed her sentiments, saying: "Clearly, someone thought she was perfect for [the role as Nina]. She's an amazing actress, she’s beautiful, and you haven’t even given her a chance and you haven’t seen it yet. So I wouldn't want to put that kind of judgement on anything that I haven’t seen, first and foremost, but most importantly imagine being in her shoes and enduring that. It’s not cool, and it’s not right... This was a magnificent woman. Zoe is absolutely an incredible actress, so give her a shot and try to enjoy and stop judging." Patton was Latifah's date at the L.A. premiere of The Perfect Match, starring Terrence J and Cassie Ventura. Don't Paula and the King make a cute couple?
