Law and Order beauty Paula Patton has her mother to thank for being Tom Cruise's perfect match in the newMission: Impossible movie. The 35-year-old actor beat scores of hopefuls to play Tom's love interest in the upcoming blockbuster — and it was all thanks to her special pushy parent. “I am an athletic woman but luckily my mom managed to teach me how to walk like a lady,” explains Paula. “She was like, ‘Don't walk like a duck. What are you doing?' With all those soccer practices and track practice, she was like, ‘Put your feet together and get it together, lady.' Because of that I was able to do all my own stunts and be able to play the more feminine side of my character.”
