I love a man a man who stans for his wife, but I think Robin Thicke is confusing his devotion for wife Paula Patton with her actual acting skills.

But in a recent interview with TheYBF, Thicke was asked who he thought would be a good fit for the role. Although Thicke thinks there is no need to rush a Whitney Houston biopic, he feels his wife would be perfect for the role.

YBF: Who do you think should play Whitney Houston in a movie?

Robin: “My wife [Paula Patton]! She reminds me of Whitney Houston.  And when she was first starting, she was going out on auditions, they were like ‘ you know you remind me of that Halle Berry meets Whitney Houston.’ She got that a lot when she first started. So she’s been getting a lot of Twitter’s and Google’s about her playing Whitney Houston. But I think it’s way too soon. I think anybody that tries to do Whitney within the next year or two is a big mistake.”

“Everybody just wants to appreciate Whitney for the genius that she was, and let everything else come in a few years. Besides my remake of course. That wasn’t for attention, it was just out of appreciation. But everyone that’s gonna make a movie is gonna wanna make money off of it and it’s all gonna get jumbled and no one is gonna wanna tell the bad stuff because it’s too soon.  And then you wont get the real story that what makes a human being a human being is their greatness and weakness.  And Whitney was one of the greatest singers of all time, so it’s gonna be hard to tell that story honestly.”

What do you think…would Paula Patton be a good fit for the role of Whitney Houston?

  1. Instead of playing Whitney Houston, Paula Patton should stick to dancing around half naked in her husband’s videos- and she can’t even do that right!!!

    Maybe it’s time for her to call it a day in the acting field and go back to producing shows for the Discovery Channel…

  2. It’s nice that Robin Thicke is plugging his wife’s non-acting skills but…no. Maybe it’s because her alleged love for the white girl has gotten out of control and he sees a role like this as a form of therapy, IDK.

    As for those saying someone is too dark or light, we have to remember that Diana Ross does not look or sound like the late Billie Holiday. And you could attribute it to being the flavor of the month for a looooong time back in the day or that Berry Gordy just had it like that but she did get a Oscar nom.

    So J-Hud doesn’t have it on that level, Bey is overexposed, Gabby Union is too stiff, if Vivica had left her face alone…maybe for older WH and cute as poor Kelly Rowland is she will never have it either.

    I would go with Meagan Good for younger WH and Joy Bryant for older WH.

    It feels ghoulish talking about a bio in the first place. Paula seems like a sweet person and I actually liked her in Precious and JTB but for this…no.

    She looks like Whitney to me. Who knows, she may do a good job. People improve in time and with experience. People stop being so judgmental and hard ! Robin would not put her out there if he did not think she was prepared to do it and get hurt behind it. Who ever they get I hope they pick the right one. I still have not gotten over the Audrey Hepburn catastrophe !! The girl may have had her body a little, but her looks definitely not ! She could not act ! They should have got someone that captured Audrey’s eyes, there was something about her eyes and then her beauty.
