Girl Talk: Laz Alonso Reveals His 5 Favorite Female Co-Stars


First and foremost, I have to say Paula Patton. She’s actually somebody who I’ve always admired from the first time I saw her on-screen in Idlewild. I was like, ‘Who is this woman!?’ We all love and respect Halle Berry, but after I saw her for the first time, I was like, ‘Wow, Halle’s got some competition. She got to stay doing her sit-ups.’ (Laughs) I’ve always admired Paula’s work, so I always wanted to work with her and I can’t even lie: I was very happy when she got cast in Jumping The Broom. It was a great opportunity for us to be in leading roles.
