Countless wives around the world no doubt thought actress Paula Patton must be directly related to a saint for putting up with her husband Robin Thicke's infamous video for hit "Blurred Lines." As we all know too well by now, the racy clip features the singer cavorting with a trio of very good-looking -- and very topless -- women.

Thicke responded calmly to the furor by insisting that his wife thought the video was "great." However, as he tells Oprah Winfrey in a new exclusive interview, Patton is a little more human in this matter than Thicke initially let on!

"Paula is a wonderful artistic partner. She'll go right for supporting the art, then she'll be a jealous wife," Thicke admitted with a laugh.

"I told her the idea, and she immediately started grabbing all these magazines and coming up with images and ideas that we used in the video," he explained, then added: "Of course, once you see the video...and your husband's romping around with three topless girls, there's going to be some jealousy. Just like I get jealous if she's doing a love scene or something."

Thicke also discussed with Oprah the worldwide attention he received following his VMA performance with Miley Cyrus, collaborating with hit-makers and Pharrell, and how "Blurred Lines" has reinvigorated his enjoyment for performing on-stage. The interview will air on OWN's "Oprah's Next Chapter" Sunday, October 13 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
