Gabriel Union Talks Hitting Rock Bottom & Being Considered An Outsider


Being Mary Jane star Gabrielle Union is the cover girl for Vegas magazine 11th anniversary issue.


During the interview the 41 year old actress opens up about her fiancee NBA star Dwyane Wade making all the plans for their upcoming wedding. She also talks about hitting rock bottom and feeling like an outsider.

Check out a few highlights from the interview below:

On D Wade being a groom-zilla on planning their upcoming wedding:

“D’s very involved in every detail. My dude is having a princess moment. Me? I did the wine tasting, and I’ve said yes to the dress. In fact, I’ve said yes to a few of them. That’s the joy of getting married to a man who loves clothes and wardrobe changes: You can have more than one dress.”

On Feeling Like an Outsider and Hitting Rock Bottom

“I felt like I had to become a chameleon,” she says, acting one way with her white friends and another for people in her community. “Even as a popular girl, I was always looking through the window and very afraid of being exposed. I just wanted to assimilate and fit in.”

On accepting D Wades kids as her own:

“We were at the construction site in Miami where we’re building our dream home—aka the money pit,” she says. “I was wearing my Prada combat boots, no makeup, and D had a videographer recording the whole thing. I went from no kids to D getting full custody, and the next day we had a full house. So it was instant. Our lives never skipped a beat. When you’re someone who goes from never having thought about birthing her own babies to a ready-made family that has immediate needs and wants and desires, your life takes a back burner. If I were lucky enough to have one come out of my body, then great, I’d be totally open to that. But D’s kids are more than just part of the wedding. They are part of my life. They’re a package deal.”
