Underappreciated Actress of Color #5: Gabrielle Union
Gabrielle's been around a while but even she will tell you it doesn't mean much, especially if you're of color and especially if you're a black actress. You're probably thinking, "She mostly plays the same characters...where's her range?" Can't show it if you're not asked to, dears, and she has most certainly not been asked to.
Doesn't matter that she's open-minded when choosing roles. Or that her being paired with a certain bit of Asian hotness no doubt helps draw extra interest to a certain TV show. Doesn't matter how fine she is, either (isn't that ridiculous?). So as usual, I ask, "What's a woman of color to do in Hollywood?"
