Gabrielle Union, 44, is a smoking hot actress who kicked off her career in the 1990’s with a handful of recognizable roles from movies only us ’90s kids would look back on fondly. Let’s run through the list of her early roles: She’s All That (1999), 10 Things I Hate About You (1999), Bring It On (2000), Love & Basketball (2000) Cradle 2 The Grave (2003) and Bad Boys II (2003). None of these movies were ever serious Oscars contenders, but they were movies most twenty-somethings grew up on, so it’s hard not to love Union for more than just her looks.
Born in Nebraska and attended the University of Nebraska (shocker) before eventually transferring to UCLA where she earned a degree in sociology. She started her acting career with small roles here and there before starting to gain steam in the late ’90s.
Recently, Union has appeared in films such Think Like a Man (2013), Top Five (2014), The Birth of a Nation (2016) and Sleepless (2017). But where you can see Union most is court side at Miami Heat and Chicago Bulls games. In 2009, the starlet began dating NBA baller Dwyane Wade. The two were engaged in December 2013 and married August 2014.
And what a lucky dog Wade is? I mean, have you SEEN Union? If you haven’t given her a close examination, take a look at the gallery of pictures above.
