Gabrielle Union is ringing in the New Year from a tropical locale.
The Bring It On star has shared gorgeous pics of her family's Maui holiday vacation over the past week, and her latest post is a sweet reflection on how far she's come. In a clip soundtracked by SZA's SOS, the star wears a green two-piece swimsuit and orange hiking shoes while bathing under a cave waterfall and referencing the iconic song by TLC.
'If I stuck to the rivers and lakes that I’m used to, I wouldn’t have made it this far ✨,' she captioned the clip.
The Being Mary Jane actress has spent the past few months promoting her latest two films, the Disney animated picture Strange World and director Elegance Bratton's debut film The Inspection. Union has received critical acclaim for her role in the indie drama.
In a recent interview with BAZAAR.com, the Flawless by Gabrielle Union founder called the past year 'a year of discovery and hopefully a rebirth.'
'I used to just take whatever project like me back,' she said of her decision process while choosing roles. 'I'd get a script and I'm like, "Well, do they want me? Okay, awesome." I was literally the choose me girl. Whatever was choosing me, I chose them back.'
'So now... I need some chuckles and some lightheartedness,' she added. 'I just want the projects to match where I'm at and the excavation that I'm currently in, to be an extension of that. If I cannot be of service to the character or the project, it's just not for me. I'm not check-chasing at this stage of the game. I only wanna do projects that move me in some way.'
