Being Mary Jane Star Dishes On Love, Hollywood and Everything Political

By  |  0 Comments

‘Being Mary Jane’ star Gabrielle Union opened another page to her complex book in talking about Ferguson, domestic violence involving the NFL and the lack of diversity that is very obvious in Hollywood.

In her recent YAHOO Style interview, Union opens up about a little bit of everything, from her epic marriage to D. Wade, why you see more black entertainers speaking up publicly about politics, Ferguson and police brutality that has seemed to take over the nation as a whole.

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.”

Mrs. Union-Wade has made it clear in multiple interviews that she is her own woman and not just a wife. She is an amazing actress with one of the top television series on T.V. starring a sista and she is making her own moves. With her husband cheering for her from the side lines. (As she does at all of his games!)

Letting Yahoo know that she does get irritated when people try to compare Scandal and Being Mary Jane to one another, the reason why it bugs her is because the two shows are nothing alike. One is about a woman in the White House and the other is about a woman News Anchor… The only comparison is that they are both black.

She also goes into great detail about asking her then fiancé, now husband, D. Wade to sign a pre-nup. She does not want her relationship to be connected to a brand, she wants her relationship to be connected to love… As most Hollywood relationships aren’t.

Those are just some of the major highlights. I encourage you to read the rest of this interview via their website, where she talks about a ‘Bring It On’ Reboot, Chris Rock talking about there not being enough black women in Hollywood, the condition that America is in, as well as Ferguson, and on black stars becoming more vocal on political views.
