Paula Patton and Robin Thicke Cover Prestige Magazine

One of our favorite power couples, Paula Patton and Robin Thicke, cover the latest issue of Prestige Magazine to talk about their careers, where they like to vacation, and their adorable son, Julian.
2013 must be the year of HOT magazine covers! Some of our favorite celebrities have been stunning on multiple covers, and now this power couple is giving us so much life on Prestige!

Robin and Paula have been married for 8 years and stall say that they are "best friends" and that they help each other out in their careers. 

On how much influence they have over each other's talents:

PP: A lot. Robin got me ready for every single acting audition I’ve ever done. We read lines together when I’m working on movies. He’s my coach. I listen to every song he writes and help however I can, and I’ve written songs with him.
RT: Our product – what ends up being seen and heard – Paula is way more involved in mine than I am in hers. I help a little bit, give some notes and encourage, do whatever I can. But my music…she’s the first one to hear almost every song that I write and many times before it’s even finished being written. She helps me with my art direction and my album covers and my videos and my wardrobe, and she is really the good taste of the family [laughs]. I just keep working hard and hoping I get lucky.

On if Paula would be a better singer or Robin a better actor in a Freaky Friday crossover:

PP: Robin would definitely be the better actor. I’m not tone deaf, but I wasn’t given a gift to sing. But my husband has been given a gift in so many different ways. He could easily be a great actor. Annoying [deadpan before she laughs].
RT: [laughing] Well, I have to say that I would be a better actor than she would a singer. But she would be a great entertainer and performer because she already is. She can do Marilyn Monroe songs and knock everybody off their chairs.

On being there for each other during down moments in their careers:

RT: Oh, without question. I don’t know if I would still be alive in some ways if it wasn’t for Paula. She’s been my rock, my muse, my inspiration and I love her. The whole way.
PP: I’ve been there for his down moments and he’s been there for mine. Life is full of peaks and valleys. Robin has always been a great person to remind me to celebrate now. Even when it looks like I’ve got a role but don’t know for sure, he’s like, “Let’s celebrate!”

On if parenthood has changed them:

RT: In every single way. My son is my good-luck charm; he’s made me not think about myself all day long. All of a sudden he shows up with his beautiful smile and perfect energy and makes me go, “Ah, forget my little problems.” He’s an amazing child.

On if Julian shows any musical inclinations:

RT: Oh yeah! He writes all his own songs and performs them and introduces himself – “Ladies and gentlemen, Julian Fuego Thicke!” He even wakes up in his sleep sometimes, introduces himself like that and falls back asleep. He’s hilarious.
PP: You can have all the success in the world. But if your child is not happy and content, none of it matters. He doesn’t have to be a billionaire, he doesn’t have to be smart. But he has to be kind and compassionate to others. His heart, I’m in charge of that, so if I leave him alone and I care more about myself, then it’s my fault.

On how they spend their free time:

PP: Talking to each other. We watch movies. Just sit and contemplate – we have a house with a bit of a view. Listening to music. Talking about what’s going on in our lives. We’re best friends. We laugh a lot. But that’s our down time. We do the things you’re supposed to do, like work out – blah, blah, blah, boring, boring. We love to travel together and travel with our child. Get out of the house. Because our house is a mad house. We don’t have normal jobs. So it’s always a work house. Robin makes music at home and my job when I’m not on set always brings people into our home.

On where they go to get away: 

RT: We love Paris because we had our most romantic endeavours there and we fall in love again every single time. We love the Caribbean or some of the spots in Mexico, like Baja California. Whenever we can, we like to get close to some sun and some sand and some fruity drinks with alcohol in them [laughs]. But Julian gets the virgin daiquiri.
