Paula Patton celebrates turning 39

Happy birthday, Paula Patton! As the American actress celebrates turning 39, HELLO! Online takes a look at what the stars have in store for Paula, and you...

This is what Paula, who is a Sagittarius, can be expecting today...  

When people are reluctant to discuss 'an elephant in the room', we must wonder why. Might it simply be because if it were acknowledged, it would lead to questions like, how did that elephant get into the room in the first place? How did it pass through the door? And if it came in long ago, as a tiny baby elephant, and has been growing ever since, how can anyone ever hope to get it back out again? Or perhaps the room has a very large pair of French windows. The solution to a problem may not be as obtuse as you fear.

Paula Patton's acting credits include Mirrors, Deja Vu and Precious
Paula Patton was born in Los Angeles, and attended UC Berkeley, before deciding after her first year that film school was where her heart was. She transferred to USC Film School and shortly after graduation began making documentaries for American channel PBS.

Her big acting break came in 2006 in the film Deju Vu, and she went on to star in Mirrors, the Oscar-nominated Precious, and Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol with Tom Cruise.

At the age of 16, Paula met Robin Thicke, an American singer, at an under-21s nightclub in LA. The pair became friends, and in 1993 began dating. Together for over twenty years, the pair married in 2005 and welcomed a son, Julian, in 2010.

In 2013 and 2014, the two weathered many rumours, including reports of Robin's infidelity and controversy over his raunchy performance of Blurred Lines at the VMAs with Miley Cyrus, but in February of this year, Paula and Robin finally confirmed they were splitting.

In a statement they admitted: "We will always love each other and be best friends. However, we have mutually decided to separate at this time."

Robin made no secret of wanting to win his childhood sweetheart back, penning an entire album, titled Paula, for her, but in October, Paula filed for divorce.
