Gabrielle Union is all-smiles, she she covers the December issue of ESSENCE.
During her sit-down with ESSENCE, Union reveals the ten things that bring her joy and how a conversation about Beyonce at a beauty salon changed her life.
This issue of ESSENCE is on newsstands now!
Union on rejection and wanting to be chosen:
“There’s this intense desire for us all to be chosen by a man, or a job, or chosen for fame, whatever. But when you’re in the public eye and you’re not chosen, the rejection feels public,” says Union. “So to cover the wound, you attack the person who is chosen.”
On her lead role in Being Mary Jane:
“It would be easy to label Mary Jane a freak…but enjoying sex doesn’t make you a ho,” says Union. “I hope [Being Mary Jane] widens the conversation. I hope people will be more forgiving of those who explore their sexuality unapologetically.”
