Gabrielle Monique Union Wade, simply known as Gabrielle Union, is a well-known American model, as well as an actress. Throughout her acting career, Gabrielle Union has had an opportunity to play the roles of many memorable characters, yet she is perhaps best known for portraying the roles of Isis in a teen comedy film “Bring It On”, where she appeared alongside Kirsten Dunst, Sydney Burnett in Michael Bay’s action and comedy film entitled “Bad Boys II” starring Will Smith and Martin Lawrence, as well as Evangeline Dandridge in Gary Hardwick’s film called “Deliver Us from Eva” with LL Cool J, Mel Jackson and Meagan Good.

Gabrielle Union Net Worth $16 Million

Gabrielle Union debuted on television screens in 1993 in an uncredited role in a sitcom called “Family Matters”. Union continued making small appearances on various television shows, including “Moesha” with Brandy Norwood, “Saved by the Bell: The New Class”, “7th Heaven” and “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine” with Avery Brooks, until she finally made her film debut in 1999 in a romantic comedy with Freddie Prinze Jr. and Rachael Leigh Cook entitled “She’s All That”. A box office success with more than $103 million grossed worldwide, “She’s All That” was not only an award-winning film, but also Union’s first major exposure to such a large audience. Even though she did not win an award for her role in the latter movie, Union’s success came two years later, when she appeared on “Bring It On” for which she received her first Black Reel Award for Best Supporting Actress.

A famous actress, how rich is Gabrielle Union? The sources state that Gabrielle Union’s net worth is estimated to be $16 million. Most of Gabrielle Union’s net worth and salary comes from her acting career.

Gabrielle Union was born in 1972, in Omaha, Nebraska, where she studied at the University of Nebraska, yet she decided upon continuing her studies at Cuesta College, and later enrolled in the University of California. While she was still a student, Union received an internship at the “Judith Fontaine Modeling and Talent Agency”, where she was given a job as a model soon after graduating from the UCLA. Union worked as a model for a brief period of time but when she discovered that she had acting skills, Union ventured into acting. At the very beginning of her career, Gabrielle Union received small roles in “Saved by the Bell”, “Love & Basketball” with Omar Epps, “Sister, Sister” and several other television and film projects. Union’s big breakthrough came in 2001 with the movie “Bring it On”, which helped her receive attention from more mainstream audiences. After that, Union was featured in such films as “Bad Boys II”, “Neo Ned” with Jeremy Renner, “The Perfect Holidays” and several episodes of “The Ugly Betty”. More recently, Union made an appearance in a critically acclaimed drama series entitled “Being Mary Jane”, as well as a commercial and critical failure called “Think Like a Man Too”, where she reprised her role of Kristen from the first “Think Like a Man” film.

Quotes

#Quote
1As women we're taught early on to be polite, to be nice, to not make anyone uncomfortable. But I always remember this great line from a movie: "All we have...is all these years." We can fill those years with toxic, negative people or with fun, positive people. You don't get any points when you get to heaven for putting up with bullshit.
2The black community in Hollywood is very small and close-knit. Everyone has a common goal: to make a two-hour movie in 30 days. We watch each others' scenes. There is a natural chemistry. You can't have a crazy diva walking around saying, "As long as I'm lit well . . ." Or, "I only care if I do well".
3It is all that an actress can hope for. The experience was very organic. I was able to be creative. In comedies, you go for the joke, and embellish. Action films are about action. They're not about performances.
4[on what she'll do next] I want to be Miss USA or Miss America. I would bring the trophy back to Nebraska. My interests are agriculture and corn. Hey, I'm just riding this train as long as I can. As long as I'm having fun, I'll do it. When it stops being fun, I'll try something else. Maybe I'll open up a chain of Popeye's Chicken".
5I still hear things like, "Gabrielle, you gave the best read! If we decide to go black, you're at the top of the list". I've actually been told, "Gabrielle, you're absolutely perfect for the role, but the role is a girl who's most popular in school". I've been to the point where I brought in my yearbook. "See how popular I was? It really can happen".
6I like directors who have worked as actors. They know the experience.
7I have the Samuel L. Jackson mentality, of working as much as possible. I think about [Halle Berry] and [Queen Latifah] and they are the only two black actresses that work consistently. It scares me.
8I didn't want to act. I thought it was a cheesy profession--but when I was a junior, I got an internship at a modeling agency. When my internship ended, they said, "We'd be interested in representing you". I was like, "If you think someone will pay me to be cheesy, sure, whatever!"
9[on Halle Berry's success] Halle's success has come more from blockbusters. But, yes, she is a source of inspiration. When she makes money, black actors make money.
10After Halle Berry does her films and Queen Latifah does her films, it's left to all the black, Latino and Asian actresses to fight over a couple of roles. I opted for some TV. There's just not a ton of work in film.
11[on her strip scene in Cradle 2 the Grave (2003)] I'm a Catholic girl from Omaha, and then all of a sudden they spring this scene on me. Afterwards I had to go to confession. I said, "Forgive me Father, for I have just bared my ass in front of the world. How many Hail Marys will it take to absolve me of that?"
12Thank God for J-Lo [Jennifer Lopez]. All of a sudden big asses are de rigueur.
13[on her status as a sex symbol] I have no problem with that! I'd rather be that than Quasimodo. Or a method actor.
