Yes, that’s really Paula Patton in The New York Times’ TMagazine! Check out the article and all the images here. Photos by Maciek Kobielski. In addition to the always welcome dose of butch sexiness, the article got me excited about seeing the new film Precious (based on Sapphire’s novel Push) starring Mo’nique, Patton, Mariah Carey, Lenny Kravitz and Gabourey Sidibe. The film, which will be released in November, was the winner of the Grand Jury Prize, Audience Award, and Special Jury Award for Acting at the Sundance Film Festival and is currently an official selection at the Cannes Film Festival. It looks nothing less than amazing.
