Gabrielle Union

Born in Omaha, Nebraska on October 29, 1972, Gabrielle Monique Union was more of an athlete than an actress during her formative years, going on to play point guard on her high school's basketball team and soccer for the University of Nebraska. Ironically, when she set her sights on showbiz, the 5'7" beauty found her breakout role as a cheerleader in Bring It On.

On her way up the ladder to superstardom, she got her start in teensploits like She's All That and 10 Things I Hate about You. But after Bring It On, she became a staple of urban-oriented fare such as Two Can Play That Game, The Brothers, and landed the lead role in Deliver Us from Eva.

Since then, Gabrielle has made the transition to summer blockbusters, co-starring opposite Will Smith and Martin Lawrence in Bad Boys II and opposite Cedric the Entertainer in The Honeymooners. Earlier this year, she handled the lead role in Tyler Perry's Daddy’s Little Girls opposite Idris Elba. She also appeared in a film for the fourth time with Morris Chestnut in The Perfect Holiday.

As for her personal life, Gabrielle's divorce from retired football star Chris Howard of the Jacksonville Jaguars was finalized in 2006.
