Gabrielle Union has opening up about when she auditioned for The Matrix.
She says for the audition, she channeled Janet Jackson. “I go to Extensions Plus…the Mecca of waves. I wanted to get the good hair, the Janet hair, from the weave emporium. I literally find the exact outfit from her album cover. I draw in the damn mole. I fully committed.”
She then said, “I play Janet the whole time, waiting for the audition, in there early. No one’s going to stop me…in walks Janet Jackson.”
As we all know, neither woman got the role. And Gabrielle lastly added, jokingly, “I think we canceled each other out. I’m pretty sure there was a restraining order of sorts.”
