Paula Patton is "open" to giving Robin Thicke another chance.
The 'Baggage Claim' actress split from the 'Blurred Lines' singer last month, and though she was reported to have insisted to him she wanted a divorce, insiders say she is now reconsidering her stance.
Sources told gossip website TMZ that the estranged couple - who have been married for eight years and have a three-year-old son, Julian, together - have been talking "constantly" and are now discussing what Robin needs to do to convince Paula they can make their marriage work.
The 38-year-old actress is said to be particularly impressed with how much of a good dad Robin, 36, has continued to be since they separated, keeping in touch while on the road and seeing their little boy whenever he can.
According to the source, Paula hasn't yet hired a divorce lawyer and has no plans to do so.
However, though their conversations have been "smooth and cordial", one thing the 'Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol' star is unhappy with is Robin's public declarations of love for her.
In New York last week, he told his audience at Madison Square Garden: "When there's someone you love, you gotta fight for them no matter what."
And days earlier, he said during a concert in Atlantic City: "Never stop believing and you never stop loving. And even if it is over, make sure you treat each other right. Treat your family right. Take care of your mom, take care of your kids and good things will come to you. Just keep believing that God is good.
"That's what gets me by. Sometimes when I get a little scared or worried about the future, I just try to stay positive and do my part to spread love and spread joy."
Though the couple insisted their split was mutual when they announced their separation, it has subsequently been reported that Paula told her spouse she wanted a divorce and Robin did everything he could to get her to change her mind.
