Gabrielle Union: My Relationship Comes First, Not My Career
Gabrielle Union is on top of the world, it seems. She recently turned 41, she looks better than ever, she's the star of new BET comedy Being Mary Jane, and she's preparing to become Mrs. Dwayne Wade. And it sounds like she's happy making that last prospect her priority, from what she says in new interview with Glamour.
The actress reflected on her temporary breakup last year with Dwayne, saying that her busy career nearly meant curtains for her relationship with the Miami Heat b'baller.
"When you're debating whether to go backward or forward, you have to look at the original issue. [The split] was because of distance and scheduling. I finished filming the show, then I flew to Vegas right away to start shooting Think Like a Man Too. I couldn't take time off, and I missed some quality togetherness we desperately needed."
She continues: "Over the summer, I reassessed priorities. I'd always wanted an awesome career with back-to-back projects, but I realized I wasn't willing to sacrifice my relationship for it. Moving forward, I decided my work schedule has to make sense for our family," she says.
Sounds like a good plan of action, girl! Congrats on all your successes.
