#GabrielleUnion is one of the select few in #Hollywood who is constantly heralded as one of the spearheaders of the "#BenjaminButton committee" — a.k.a. the "Is she aging backwards?" club. However, though she's seemingly looked the same for years, that hasn't hindered her from feeling threatened, especially when up-and-coming actress and apparent #GabU. look-a-like #RyanDestiny hit the scene.
The #BeingMaryJane frontwoman spoke on her internalized vitriol towards the young actress in her new memoir, #WereGoingToNeedMoreWine, and, boy, did she go there.
In an excerpt from her book obtained by #Bossip, the A-list actress admitted to being slightly threatened by the public's claim that #Destiny was the "next her." "Just the night before, I had attended a pre-#Oscar cocktail party for women in film. There I had met a young actor named Ryan Destiny," she wrote. "She had appeared in the #LeeDaniels series #Star. I had heard that she looked like me. I saw her in person and she looks like I literally gave birth to her. #Gab 2.0, only better." She then recalled the brief exchange they had, which led to her having a not-so-polite thought about the young star, who was having a fan-girl moment after meeting the iconic actress. "'Oh my God,' she said. 'I am finally meeting you. This is so amazing.' 'What are you, twelve?' 'Twenty-two.' 'S**t.' 'I admire you so much,' she said. 'If you could mentor me...' B***h, f**k you, I thought. You want me to mentor you?" she recalled. "The press is literally calling you the next Gabrielle Union... 'except she can sing and dance!' I smiled, and the photographers came over. They needed to document this moment of 'Look who's old!'" Destiny has, apparently, gotten word of what #Union wrote about her and spoke about the exchange with #LiveCivil. The Star actress claimed she was completely clueless about what Union was thinking in her head as it didn't show on the outside, whatsoever. (Swipe 👈🏽 4 Ryan Destiny's quote) #TheSavageRoom#Savage
