Gabrielle Union_Good Morning America_9-8-2020

Gabrielle Union visited the set of Good Morning America virtually on Tuesday, September 8 to discuss her magazine photo shoot with a black female photographer.

The ‘L.A.’s Finest’ actress mentioned the new issue of Women’s Health magazine was the best of her 25 year career.

“I don’t think I’ve ever felt more powerful,” Union told “Good Morning America. It was the first time shooting a cover with a Black female photographer and I’ve been in the business 25 years — so it’s unfortunate that it took that long to happen, but it just felt so empowering to be shot by a Black woman.”


Union also said it was “the first time I wore my own hair — no wigs or clips or weaves or anything just my own natural curls and I felt so amazing — I was fully in my body and I felt like my most authentic self.”

L.A.’s Finest is an action-drama that stars Gabrielle Union as Special Agent/Detective Lieutenant Sydney “Syd” Burnett. Jessica Alba plays Nancy McKenna, a working stepmother and secret former career criminal who is Syd’s new partner and friend in the LAPD.  

Season 2 of ‘L.A.’s Finest’ airs tomorrow, September 9, 2020. Check local listings.
