Gabrielle Union: 'Real Life Is Way Different Than a Romantic Comedy'

Plus, Regina Hall and La La Anthony on mean bloggers.

Published June 18, 2014

The ladies of Think Like a Man TooLa La Anthony, Regina Hall and Gabrielle Union — know a thing or two about the comedy and tragedy of real-life romance, and there's one thing they all agree on: our favorite rom-coms aren't exactly a road map for life.

"Real life is way different than a romantic comedy," admits Union, who has faced her share of relationship drama this past year. Her co-stars agree, starring in a handful of rom-coms doesn't leave you any better prepared for love drama. 

The girls do, however, have a lot to say about mean-spirited bloggers, of whom they have all three been victims. "It's so interesting to me how people feel they have a right to say unkind things," says Hall, who points out that she doesn't have any social media accounts to stay away from the hate. 

"I come from more of the mindset of, 'worry if they're not talking about you,'" says Anthony. Meanwhile, Gabrielle Union takes issue with the fact that, particularly when it comes to Black celebrities, "people feel comfortable saying cruel things."
