Gabrielle Union Covers 'Ocean Drive'

Gabrielle Union is all smiles on the cover of Ocean Drive magazine’s latest issue.

Here’s what the 39-year-old actress had to share:

On her life in Miami with Dwyane Wade: “When I land in Miami, I feel like I’ve been holding my breath and am finally exhaling. I can breathe. I feel accepted, welcomed. But D and I have a life together, too. I’ll occasionally shoot around with D or rebound for him. I don’t have a half-assed switch-it’s either full-out or we’re playing H-O-R-S-E. So I’m likely to get a black eye or bust my nose or roll around scrambling for the ball and get court burns.”

On the prejudices that still exist for African Americans in Hollywood: “There are a lot of people who won’t give me a chance because I was in Bring it On a thousand years ago. They don’t think I can be more than that sassy sidekick. I guess they didn’t see Cadillac Records or Neo Ned. I try not to play the coulda, woulda, shoulda game. But there are so many great shows I wish I could be part of.”

She looks better and younger than me and I’m 25. Damn. She’s so beautiful. I thought she was like around my age.

typecasting happens all the time in Hollywood not just to black actors/actresses but I see her point

I LOVE the third pic, she’s gorgeous. And I get her point. Judgemental people are everywhere. Sometimes I feel like getting myself a headshot for people can be SO judgemental and mean. I can’t believe they don’t realise it
