Paula Patton dons swimsuits and lingerie for the January 2012 issue of GQ magazine. In the accompanying interview, she shared some insights on what it was like filming the latest “Mission: Impossible” flick alongside Tom Cruise.
Patton did all her own stunts for the film, as did Cruise. “I was going physical stunts, feet in the mud, fingernails full of dirt, shooting and fighting for my life,” she said.
In a separate interview last week with the Wall Street Journal, Patton described the training she underwent to prepare: “I had a great trainer who wanted to make sure I was versed in many styles of physical defense and he also showed me things I could do as a woman of my stature to take on the biggest guy in the room.”
Paula Patton was photographed by Mark Seliger for in fashion and accessories from Maison Martin Margiela, Keiko, Tom Ford and more. Check out the GQ January 2012 pictorial below, and for even more photos of the “Ghost Protocol” star, see this gallery.
