Gabrielle Union isn’t quietly letting her trolls go. The actress slammed the critics for saying she shouldn’t wear thong bikinis at 50. In a recent appearance on the Who What Wear podcast  The Perfect Find star talked about the age shaming of Hollywood actresses. 

Gabrielle Union said she has been treated like she had osteoporosis

The actress told host Jasmine Fox-Suliaman, “Somebody said, ‘You’re old enough to be somebody’s grandma, why are you still, like, wearing bikinis? I’m like, ‘First of all, they’re not just bikinis. They are thongs. And you’re gonna see these cheeks until my a** literally falls off, and I might just wear a bikini in the casket. I don’t know, that might just be for you, for that one commenter… this is for you b**ch, and it’s just gonna be like me in a thong, like a** up in the casket.”

Moreover, Union pointed out how women become worthless as they age in this world of the spotlight. The Inspection star said, “[When you’re] 35, they start treating you like you’ve got osteoporosis. You start becoming invisible, and it’s a weird, empty feeling to feel like you’re disappearing in front of your own eyes. You start taking on the same attitude as society that believes that you lack value.”

“I don’t want anyone else to feel that invisibility and that sense of worthlessness because the only people that we need to validate us is us,” The actress added. “And sometimes, the more that you validate your damn self, the more people are like, ‘Yeah.'”

However, for now, the actress is in the limelight for her two-part docu-series special on BET+ titled Gabrielle Union: My Journey to 50 with her husband retired NBA star Dwyane Wade. 

Needless to say, age is just a number for the stunning actress and producer.
