The very preggers and very fabulous Paula Patton spoke to media this week about her previous hardships of being in an interracial relationship. Despite her half white background, she still had difficulty during her teen years when she first started dating her now husband Robin Thicke.
Her take on her experiences under the cut….
Paula says about previously hiding her interracial relationship:
“When I was in high school I found myself totally enamoured [with] this guy,” the 34-year-old Precious actress — who is half white herself — says. “But I didn’t want all my high school friends to know that I’d fallen for a white boy. I didn’t want to be judged by that. So I hid him. I did.”
She also spoke about skipping out on her high school prom because she was afraid of taking him:
“That’s the sad part. I missed it because I was afraid. I didn’t choose him because of his colour,” she says. “I chose him because of his heart and his soul and he makes me laugh. He’s one of the most special human beings I know.”
Paula Patton is now 34 years-old so she has clearly worked past these fears, which were almost twenty years ago. Robin Thicke has openly talked about experiencing prejudice in an interracial relationship
