American actress and former model, Gabrielle Union had an interview with Yahoo Style and the ” Bad Boys II” star talked about Mary Jane where she played the role of a journalist. She also talked about the news and racism in America in relation to the killing of an unarmed teenager in Ferguson and Eric Garner’s death in New York.
One very important and personal thing the 42-year-old actress spoke about is her Marriage to Dwyane Wade and the reason she asked for a pre-nup. On that she said:
“For women in Hollywood, when they’re coupling, everything is about the brand. Everything is about latching on to a rising star, so you can kick your heels up. That’s never been my story, ever. I make sure to let people know all of the hard work that’s gone into my career. I want people to know the work that it took to get through UCLA, that I had student loans and worked. I was eating Top Ramen and lived well below my means. Now that it’s time to get married to a man who happens to play basketball and has done well for himself, I want to make it clear that I have in no way hitched my wagon to his star. I have my own wagon and star.”
Gabrielle and Dwayne got married in 2014 and it is her second marriage. She was first married to the professional American football running back, Chris Howard 39, in 2001 and their marriage lasted until 2006.
