Word is, the stunningly gorgeous Paula Patton has decided to go completely topless in her new film 2 Guns, staring Mark Wahlberg and Denzel Washington. In the movie, Paula plays Deb, a DEA agent involved in a relationship with her tumultuous fellow agent, Bobby (Denzel).

A lengthy topless scene in the movie features Deb and Bobby lying in bed together. As Deb rolls over to ask Bobby if he loves her, Deb’s upper body is revealed on screen, a surprise no one would have seen coming from the 37-year-old actress.

“It was my idea. It was something that I had thought about for a long time,” said Patton in an interview with Yahoo! Movies.

“You know, you prepare for all these scenes ahead of time and I just thought, ‘Gosh, it doesn’t seem realistic for somebody who’s been lovers with somebody for quite a while and they’ve just made love and now the conversation’s happening that you would have a bra or a top on.’ It just didn’t make sense to me, so I thought the natural thing would be to not have one on.”

In 2006, Paula did a not-so-intimate shower scene in the movie Deja Vu, which also stared Hollywood heartthrob, Denzel Washington.

“I came to set and kind of surprised Denzel and Baltasar, our director,” Paula explained. “I said, ‘No, I’m not going to be wearing a top.’ I was like, ‘No, I just don’t think it’s natural.’ And then Denzel was like, ‘Well, I’m taking my top off, too.'”

Paula, who is married to R&B singer Robin Thicke, was asked how Thicke responded to the idea of her being naked on screen.

“I called [him] the night before and I said, ‘What do you think?’ And he’s like, ‘Go for it,'” Patton said. “He’s all about the art in the end.”

The action packed movie 2 Guns opened in theaters August 2.
