Paula Patton: I ‘Wasn’t Surprised’ By Miley Cyrus Grinding Against My Husband

Gabrielle Chung / September 18, 2013

Miley Cyrus has Paula Patton’s seal of approval to twerk on.

The actress, who is married to Cyrus’ VMAs singing partner Robin Thicke, says she had no qualms about the 20-year-old getting up close and personal with her man during their controversial performance at the MTV Video Music Awards in August.

I wasn’t surprised at all,” she tells the TODAY Show. “Honestly, they rehearsed for three days beforehand, and I don’t know how not to dance with someone having their booty in your … all my friends do it like that. And I don’t really know what the big deal is.”

“I didn’t know if they thought Miley was going to sit down and play piano like Alicia Keys,” Patton adds in reaction to the routine’s negative reviews.

In fact, the Baggage Claim star is very open about her hubby doing his thang with half-naked (or fully nude) ladies.

Thicke recently told Treats! magazine that Patton was the one who encouraged him to star in their NSFW cover, which was riddled with scantily-clad models.

I’ve done some topless photo shoots before but never completely nude. It was very sexy and I like that. At first I thought, ‘Okay, let’s just do topless’…but, again, my wife and her friends were like, ‘No way … go all the way,’” he told the mag. “I think we definitely pushed the envelope.”
