Gabrielle Update: The actress from “Cheaper by the Dozen” did not leave much to the imagination in her very exposing outfit, which had a cutaway that was far larger than it was intended to be.
The more time that passes, the more stunning Gabrielle Union seems. She just can’t help herself. On the evening of Saturday, July 23, the actress, who is now 49 years old, stunned onlookers when she left her home in Los Angeles to attend a bachelorette party in the city.
The alum of Cheaper by the Dozen drew attention as she walked into the party wearing a black top with a barely-there cutout and matching leggings. She was greeted by the future bride and a large group of her stunning pals.
Her breakthrough role as a celebrity came in the cheerleading comedy Bring It On, which she co-starred in opposite Kirsten Dunst in the year 2000. The couple has two daughters together: Zaya, who is 14 years old, and Kaavia, who is 3 years old.
On the other hand, Gabrielle said not too long ago that she has some second thoughts about her part in the movie. During her appearance on Good Morning America the previous year, she voiced her worries about “muzzling” her character Isis. She also wrote an apologetic letter to Isis in her book titled “You Got Anything Stronger?
The fact that Isis finds out that her team’s choreography has been stolen by another team in the movie is enough to make anybody justifiably outraged; nonetheless, Gabrielle has said that she did not feel she could portray it that way.
“It’s not okay for black females to be furious,” the speaker said. “I wasn’t even somewhat furious, so there was no need for me to silence her,” she said. “I had silenced her and turned her into this kind and honorable leader, but in that film, I played the role of the antagonist. After going through all of that transformation for a character, I suddenly became aware that I was also going through it with myself. I wasn’t letting myself experience the full breadth of my human potential.
Gabrielle said that considering this would have prompted her to alter her performance in some way. She said, “I would have allowed her full humanity, and part of being able to feel wrath when mistreated is part of being a whole person.”
“I would have allowed her full humanity,” she said. “When you don’t truly allow yourself to experience your whole range of emotions and you stifle your feelings, you give other people permission to say, ‘Maybe what I did wasn’t that horrible.’ I would have directed all of my rage against her.
Gabrielle offered ideas for a sequel at a Zoom reunion in August 2020 with costar Kirsten and director Peyton Reed. Despite the possibility that she has some regrets about the way she managed the initial production, Gabrielle did pitch ideas for a sequel.
“The influence that this movie had and continues to have, that’s great,” she stated 20 years after the fact when asked about it. “So, whatever it is that we may one day come up with, I mean, Kirsten, maybe we’re like co-heads of the PTA. Whatever it is, we’ll figure it out. I am unable to say.”
