Gabrielle Union has taken a page from her grandmother’s book on living well.
“You know, my grandma lived to be 110, and she drank alcohol, like, every day. I don’t drink every day. But if somebody’s like, ‘Shots!’ I’m like, ‘Yes!’ If someone says, ‘Bacon!’ I’m like, ‘Yes!’ She lived. I definitely live,” the actress shared in the September issue of Health.
Union, 44, isn’t the biggest fan of working out.
“I’m not one of those people, like, ‘I can’t start my day without it.’ Nope. I can actually start my day beautifully, sleeping in, eating some pancakes. But I work out because I have a family history of diabetes and heart disease. Knowing what I can do to prevent that has been a huge thing. And then there’s my job. Knowing that there are people who cannot wait to circle your fat and draw an arrow to it keeps me in the gym,” she explained.
Outside of the gym, she and NBA husband Dwyane Wade, 35, have found another way to stay in shape.
“[We] like to walk through the neighborhood. Mainly because we’re nosy. We want to see what houses are for sale,” she said.
As for when the “Being Mary Jane” star feels sexiest, it’s in the comfort of her own home.
“Out there on the deck, when I have a bikini on, holding a cold beer, and my husband’s there. I’m not in hair and makeup. I’m just chilling at home,” she said
