Gabrielle Union Is Financially Independent from Dwyane Wade

Gabrielle Union Is Financially Independent from Dwyane Wade

Gabrielle Union goes topless under her jacket on the cover of Ocean Drive magazine‘s May/June 2016 issue.

Here is what the 43-year-old Being Mary Jane actress had to share with the mag:

On having her own financial independence in marriage to Dwyane Wade: “He appreciates my independence, and my high credit score, and the fact that if I want a Chanel bag, I’m not asking for his Amex; I’ve got my own.”

On her happy marriage: “If you have good, effective, honest communication, you can handle any issue or problem in a relationship. D is literally my best friend. We really, really enjoy spending time with each other more than anybody else. Well, with D, maybe I’m tied with LeBron! But I’m definitely his favorite female! If you have the chance to marry your best friend, I would highly recommend it.”

On Hollywood’s lack of diversity: “Half the time, [African Americans] don’t even get the opportunity to fail, at least let me audition, so you can say I just wasn’t good enough, but most times black actors can’t even get in the door. The idea that the playing field has ever been equal is a farce. With leaps and bounds of advances, it’s still grossly unequal—and that goes for the Latino, Asian, Middle Eastern, and LGBT communities as well. We’ve made strides, but if Hollywood is really going to mirror the world that it’s catering to, we have a long, long way to go.”
