GABRIELLE UNION: Ocean Drive Magazine Cover Girl

Gabrielle Union is featured on the cover of the February 2012 issue of Ocean Drive Magazine and she looks absolutely flawless in her spread shot by Steve Erle. Inside, the 39-year-old “Good Deeds” actress talks about life in Miami with her baller beau Dwayne Wade, her career, and having children.

Check out the highlights from her interview after the jump:

On getting sick when she’s away from Miami:
“A week away is pretty much it for me. When I land in Miami, I feel like I’ve been holding my breath and am finally exhaling. I can breathe. I feel accepted, welcomed. I feel like I can be my true self, the woman I always aspired to be… More in Miami than any other place.”

On life with Dwyane Wade in Miami:
“D and I have a life together, too. I love my life in Miami, I can’t imagine functioning without both, I love the design district, I love Midtown, I love what’s happening downtown now. I can be at People’s Bar-B-Que or Sustain or Prime One Twelve, and I’m comfortable. It’s rare for me to feel that level of freedom. Miami represents joy for me.”

On her career:
“I’ve been lucky; for the past year, I haven’t really auditioned for anything; the parts I got were straight-up offers. I’m not so grand that I wouldn’t audition. In fact, I wish I could audition more. There are a lot of people who won’t give me a chance because I was in ‘Bring It On’ one thousand years ago. They don’t think I can be more than that sassy sidekick. I guess they didn’t see ‘Cadillac Records’ or ‘Neo Ned.'”

On having children:
“I was never someone who thought about having kids – I mean, they’re great in theory, but I never imagined having one [myself]. Maybe over the next five years I could wrap my brain around becoming a mother and what that would mean in terms of sacrifice and dedication. I don’t do anything impulsively, so more toward the five years out than the one-year.”
