Gabrielle Union: “I Don’t Return Emails and I Hate Talking on the Phone”
Posted by Media Outrage on March 18, 2010
Gabrielle Union sat down with HoneyMag.com for an indepth interview about her career and future. Peep game on what she said about having kids…
What did you learn about relationships from your marriage?
That you can’t sweat the small stuff. I spent so much of my marriage upset. Things like the toilet seat being up or down shouldn’t define your day. You put so much on every little thing. You look at your parents like they were infallible and perfect and you realize now that they made a lot of mistakes and they’re just people. I’m giving the men in my life the same consideration. They’re just human.
Would you want to see into your future?
Hell, yes! I have bills. I want to know if I’m going to be able to pay them. In Janet’s flash forward she sees herself having this baby and she never even thought about children. I don’t think about children. I’m 37 and I don’t think about wanting kids at all or look at babies and go ‘Ooh!’ I have more of a chance of adopting animals on the street.
What do you consider your best features?
My teeth. I thank my orthodontist. My eyes, my laugh, my generosity. For lack of a better word, my fellowship. I love bringing people together. I love connecting with people.
What don’t you like about yourself?
I tend to procrastinate. I obsess over things I have no control over. I’m judgmental at times. That’s kind of it. There aren’t too many things I don’t like about myself. What I don’t like I try to change. I don’t return e-mails and I hate talking on the phone. I text. I make my mother and father text. We’re not allowed phones that ring on the set so when I’m here I text.
