Gabrielle Union has revealed that her husband Dwyane Wade is not a fan of her onscreen sex scenes – and often asks for a warning before watching her on TV.
The 48-year-old actress has had a number of raunchy moments in her TV show L.A.’s Finest and she admitted basketball ace Dwyane, 39, doesn’t enjoy watching them, but sometimes he sees them without warning because she ‘forgets’ what she filmed.
Speaking on the Renaissance Man podcast, she said: ‘He’ll ask before each episode: “Are you naked in this one?” Sometimes I forget, because we shot this stuff a year ago. And we’ll sit there with the whole family, popcorn, and he’s like …’
Gabrielle – who has daughter Kaavia, two, with her spouse and is stepmother to his children Zaire, 18, Zaya, 13, and Xavier, seven – admitted she also has to think about their offspring when it comes to stripping onscreen.
She said: ‘The older boys were like, “I am getting murdered at school,” like with the sex scenes and all that.’
However, she insisted she’ll continue to expose her skin for as long as she’s comfortable, adding: ‘Everyone will just adjust.’
But the Bad Boys actress had her own moment of jealousy when her husband had a cameo in What To Expect When You’re Expecting, which saw him ballroom dancing.
She said: ‘I was like, “What is this, pasodoble?”… I know I couldn’t do it. God bless, he is better than me.’
