Gabrielle Union is an icon to me for reasons I could take hours out of your day to explain. But because time is of the essence, I'll keep it short and sweet: She likes to keep it real, her relationship with her children makes more than a majority of the staff at Marie Claire swoon, her beauty secrets are divine, and she's been making movies and TV shows we can't get enough of for decades. Since popping up in Black sitcoms such as Moesha and Sister, Sister and starring in iconic '90s staples like She's All That to 10 Things I Hate About You, the actress has made a name for herself in Hollywood.
More recently, she's shown her incredible strength in speaking up about standing up against racism and holding people accountable in Hollywood. “These racist institutions and systems have done an amazing job at keeping us very fearful of speaking up, asking for equality, and asking for accountability, because they have shown us time and time again that we are disposable,” she told Marie Claire in our October digital cover story. “They will discredit and malign you, and you will never work again.…Being blackballed in this industry is very real.”
Assuming you're like me and simply can't get enough of her, here are 12 of her movies starring the pop culture icon that we just can't get enough of.
