Robin Thicke's wife Paula Patton defended her husband's controversial VMA duet with Miley Cyrus -- and even did a little twerking of her own on the TODAY show Wednesday.
Patton made an appearance to promote Baggage Claim, her upcoming movie.
When the show's co-anchors asked her to share her thoughts about Miley Cyrus twerking on her husband for their duet of hit single Blurred Lines, she said she didn't think it was a big deal because she's "not that uptight."
"I'm not a traditionalist," she said on TODAY. "Twerking can help the love."
When the TODAY anchors asked if she could demonstrate her twerking skills, she turned to Al Roker and asked if his wife would get upset.
The former model who wore a leopard print mini-dress proceeded to walk over to TODAY weatherman Al Roker and twerked on him.
"Your wife's not going to get mad at me, is she?" Patton asked before grinding on Roker.
When she was finished, she joked, "I backed it up on Al!"
Pattinson first shared how she felt about Cyrus' performance during a Sept. 17 appearance on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live. The sexy actress said she "wasn't surprised" by their racy Blurred Lines performance.
"Honestly, they rehearsed for three days beforehand, and I don't know how not to dance with someone having their booty in your...all my friends do it like that," the actress explained. "And, I don't really know what the big deal is."
"I didn't know if they thought Miley was going to sit down and play piano like Alicia Keys. Her song is about taking Molly!" she said, referring to We Can't Stop, Cyrus' multiplatinum hit. "I don't understand. I didn't get the big deal."

On Aug. 30, Thicke replied to the criticism by posting picture on Twitter of him with Patton and their child on vacation on Twitter.
Thicke recently told Star magazine he and Cyrus knew what they were getting into.
"We're entertainers, and the VMAs [are] the perfect place for a little shock and awe," Thicke told Star. "We kind of knew when we were in rehearsal and we were like, 'Okay, if you touch me with your foam finger all over my crotch, obviously a few people are going to have something to say about this'. But that was the whole point!"
Cyrus herself defended their controversial debut. She told E! News in her first post-MTV VMA interview that she and Thick said they knew they were about to make history. She said she told him, "You know we're about to make history right now."
She then addressed her critics and said "They're over-thinking it."
"You're thinking about it more than I thought about it when I did it. Like, I didn't even think about it 'cause that's just me."
