Before Gabrielle Union was bringing it on and acting like a lady but, you know, thinking like a man, she was just like any other girl. She was a star student, an athlete, and oh ya, a budding TV star.

This 41-year-old starlet had her fair share of small TV roles during the golden years known as the ‘90s. From Family Matters to Saved by the Bell: The New Class, Gabrielle clocked in some serious screen time before landing movie roles in 10 Things I Hate About You, Bad Boys II, Deliver Us From Eva, and more.

But acting wasn’t always Gabrielle’s career choice. Not only did she graduate with honors from UCLA (you go, girl!), but she originally wanted to become a lawyer. Maybe she can play one on TV? She sure has the smarts!

Nowadays, this girl has returned to her TV roots and is currently starring as the lead in BET’s original scripted series, Being Mary Jane. Oh yea, and she is planning her wedding to fiancé Dwyane Wade.
