At the film’s press day, actress Paula Patton spoke to Collider for this exclusive interview about her desire to do a romantic comedy, how long ago she first read this script, wanting to do physical comedy, working with such a great ensemble cast, who was the most difficult to get through scenes with (without laughing), and how much doing a movie about a story like this made her appreciate the love she has in her own life. Check out what she had to say after the jump.
