It’s been a difficult few years for Paula Patton, but she’s making the best of it. “I’m doing really well,” Patton said on “Good Morning America” on Friday about the breakup of her marriage with Robin last year. “I mean, the honest truth is, it has been challenging. But it’s been a year of growth — learning about all new things.”
“I feel like everything happens for a reason,” said the actress, 39, who first met Thicke when she was a teenager. “And then you have to move on and grow from there.”
Helping her do just that, is her beautiful son, Julian, 4. “The thing is, you can’t wallow in sadness or stay in bed when you have a child. And they’re so full of life and wonder. And he brings me so much joy,” she said.
The Mission Impossible franchise star jump-started her new life by launching a new clothing line in collaboration with designer Ellen Tracy.
“It was kind of an amazing blessing,” Patton explained. “Ellen Tracy came to me and said, ‘Would you like to be our brand ambassador?’ And I looked at the clothing and – [it was] amazing. It’s really well made, classic clothing that’s affordable. But what I liked about it was that you could, like, add your own twist to it … you can make it as edgy or quirky as you want and add your personality to it.”
