Gabrielle Union says Dwyane Wade's resume 'looked like crap' when they met
It wasn’t love at first sight for Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade.
In fact, the 41-year-old actress was quite unimpressed with her future fiancé at the get-go! Or as she puts it in an interview in Glamour magazine’s February 2014 issue, his “‘résumé’ looked like crap: athlete, going through a divorce, nine years younger than me.”
“None of that screamed, ‘Let’s have a lasting relationship,'” she says. “Then, after I had a heart-crushing breaking with yet another immature jerk, I thought, it can’t be any worse if I date a fetus. Let’s just see what happens.”
“Turned out he’d been on his own since he was 15. He had wisdom that comes with facing an insane amount of adversity,” she says of her now 31-year-old hubby-to-be. “He’s sweet, funny, honest about his shortcomings. When I put my preconceived notions to the side, I found someone cool.”
