Paula Patton has described her baby son as a "good luck charm" - because he scored her a lead role in Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol.

The Precious star won the part in the fourth instalment five months after giving birth to one-year-old Julian Fuego, her first child with husband and Grammy-winning singer Robin Thicke.

"I was pregnant during the whole awards season of Precious and then I gave birth to my son. Five months later I got the role - so he's been my good luck charm, my little boy," she said.

The 36-year-old actress has been a fan of the Mission: Impossible movies since the first one, so winning the role of field agent Jane Carter opposite Tom Cruise and Jeremy Renner has been a "dream come true".

Paula confessed that she even thought her agents were pulling her leg when they asked her to audition for the blockbuster franchise.

"I just said, 'Ugh, please! Don't waste my time'," she laughed.

"Never in my wildest imagination did I think I'd be in Mission: Impossible. I was blown away. It's been a dream come true. This has been an incredible ride."

Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol is in cinemas now.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

It feels like friends are few and far between. If you're not getting the help you need, ask why. It may be because you have been so preoccupied with work. Skipping special occasions and failing to return phone calls causes resentment. You have to be more engaged to sustain loving bonds. Call someone you've missed. It may take a few tries, but it's worth the effort. Be forthright about why you have been out of touch. Communication is the cornerstone of every healthy relationship.More
