Paula Patton Gets Gorgeous For Pepsi NEXT And Lands Role With Denzel Washington (PHOTOS)

Actress Paula Patton looked lovely in a red Azzedine Alaia dress yesterday as she started her gig as Pepsi NEXT's newest celebrity spokesperson.

Already a brand ambassador for CoverGirl, Paula's beauty and bubbly personality is perfect for the low-sugar carbonated beverage.

Nicki Minaj and Eva Longoria are also official faces of Pepsi NEXT.

And if that's not exciting enough, the web has been buzzing about "The Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol" star hooking up with Denzel Washington.

But wait! No need for alarm. The two aren't stepping out on their spouses--they are simply starring together in the upcoming movie "2 Guns."

Paula is said to be playing the girlfriend of Denzel's character in the film. Sounds steamy--we can't wait!

But while we do, here's a look at Paula all dolled up and putting on her best product endorsement moves for the camera.
