Leading Lady: Gabrielle Union Covers February 2012 ‘Ocean Drive’
Actress Gabrielle Union is dazzling in a gold sequined dress and Lanvin wedges on the February issue of Ocean Drive magazine. The gorgeous Vixen chatted it up with the magazine where she dished on life in Miami, her career starting a family and more. The article says it best, Gabrielle has beauty, brains and basketball going for her and she seems to be at the peak of happiness in her life.
Check out a few excerpts from her interview below.
On life with Dwyane Wade in Miami:
“D and I have a life together, too. I love my life in Miami, I can’t imagine functioning without both, I love the design district, I love Midtown, I love what’s happening downtown now. I can be at People’s Bar-B-Que or Sustain or Prime One Twelve, and I’m comfortable. It’s rare for me to feel that level of freedom. Miami represents joy for me.”
On her career:
“I’ve been lucky; for the past year, I haven’t really auditioned for anything; the parts I got were straight-up offers. I’m not so grand that I wouldn’t audition. In fact, I wish I could audition more. There are a lot of people who won’t give me a chance because I was in ‘Bring It On’ one thousand years ago. They don’t think I can be more than that sassy sidekick. I guess they didn’t see ‘Cadillac Records’ or ‘Neo Ned.’”
On starting a family:
“I was never someone who thought about having kids – I mean, they’re great in theory, but I never imagined having one [myself]. Maybe over the next five years I could wrap my brain around becoming a mother and what that would mean in terms of sacrifice and dedication. I don’t do anything impulsively, so more toward the five years out than the one-year.”
