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? 

  • Alexandra

    Cute but I don’t think she’s a great actress either. Her complexion excludes her as well, but I think she can pull off ’80′s Whitney/curly hair’.

  • Bosslady

    Lol. I agree!!

  • Cia

    She doesn’t have to look exactly like Whitney…Denzel is about 3 shades darker than Malcom X…she is a decent actor and I see potential.

  • Jai

    Absolutely not!!!!!

  • So Over This Ish

    She doesn’t have to look exactly like her, but I think there should be some resemblance. No one in Hollywood quite has what Whitney had.

    Paula is a very pretty woman but Whitney had a very distinct beauty that would be difficult to emulate. She was a brown-skinned lady with something special about her. I don’t really see Paula being able to pull that off. I can’t really envision anyone being able to play Whitney because she was one of a kind.

    I look at it like this…many white actresses have played Marilyn Monroe, but very few have been able to capture the essence of what made her so special. It’s kind of the same thing with Whitney.
