Paula chose to go topless in 2 Guns

Paula Patton stars alongside Denzel Washington in 2 Guns

Paula Patton has revealed it was her idea to go topless for her love scenes in 2 Guns - but she got husband Robin Thicke's blessing first.

The Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol beauty stars opposite Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg in the action comedy about a pair of undercover agents brought together to infiltrate a Mexican drug cartel and recover millions of dollars in the film.

Paula, who has been married to chart-topper Robin since 2005, plays Denzel's character's lover and admitted she hates it when people keep their underwear on for sex scenes as it's unrealistic.

The 37-year-old actress revealed: "It actually was my idea and they didn't really know I was going to do it.

"I kept thinking about this scene, and thinking 'Gosh, these two have been lovers for a long time, they've just made love.' It seemed odd and unnatural for her to put a shirt on.

"And one of my pet peeves is seeing people in bed with a bra on, I just don't understand it."

"So I actually called my husband and said, 'I think that I shouldn't wear anything on top for this scene', and he said, 'Go for it, it's all about the art.'

"So I came to set and I said to Baltasar Kormakur [the director] and Denzel, 'I'm not going to be wearing a top. It doesn't seem natural.' And Denzel was like, 'Well I'm not going to wear a top then either!' So that was it!"

Paula also revealed she would love to return to work on Mission: Impossible 5, but she's not giving anything away.

She said: "I adore Tom [Cruise]. We just had a blast making that movie, so I would love to do it again, yes."

:: 2 Guns opens in cinemas on Friday, August 16.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Scorpio:

This is an ideal time to make plans for the future. If you've been thinking about getting a better job, start getting the necessary training. It may take longer than you expect to reach your goal, but don't let that deter you. The best things in life involve an element of sacrifice. A reference from a powerful friend will help you get into an exclusive group or prestigious society. Your new friends and contacts might eventually be able to give you a helping hand professionally, but that's all in times to come.More
