Gabrielle Union has been active in the Hollywood industry since the early 1990s. Following her success in “Bring It On,” she cemented her place in the industry with her roles in “Bad Boys II,” “Being Mary Jane,” and “Think Like a Man.” However, she appears to have not aged in all these years whenever she graces the TV screens. 

By the late twenties, fine wrinkles and saggy skin are common in females. But the 48-year-old  boasts a youthful appearance, with wrinkle-free skin and a flawless smile. She looks virtually exactly like she did in the 1990s, which is quite remarkable. What’s the hidden secret behind her immaculate beauty – excellent plastic surgery or some good genes?

Many people believe Union’s wrinkle-free skin is due to cosmetic procedures like Botox. While some claim that she has had a nose job as her nose appears to be narrower than before. So, are such allegations true?

Has Gabrielle Union Had Nose Job?

Compared to Union’s older photos, her nose appears to be a little narrower in recent pictures. Hence, many claim that the actress has had rhinoplasty.

However, some people believe the claim of a nose job is ridiculous. According to them, the difference in nose thickness is just a result of makeup, particularly nose contouring. They even reference an Instagram post shared by the actress back in 2013.

In the post, the Bad Boys II actress can be seen with and without makeup. Her nose appears bigger in the no-makeup photo in comparison to the makeup look in that post. With that in mind, it’s reasonable to say Union retains her inherent beauty.

Botox: The Cause of Her Wrinkle-Free Skin?

Celebrities are well-known for using Botox to keep their skin tight and wrinkle-free. As a result, it’s only natural for admirers to wonder if Union uses Botox, especially because her face is almost wrinkle-free. But are these assumptions true?

According to Union, the claims related to the use of botox on her face are false. In a 2017 interview with Women’s Health, she said she is frightened of needles and hasn’t used botox yet.

The actress honestly stated that she owes her natural beauty to her genetics and a few good practices, such as drinking water and abstaining from smoking.

Any Plans For Cosmetic Surgery?

The Think Like a Man actress has no intention of going under the knife. Even though she is already showing symptoms of aging, the 48-year-old actress prefers to stay in shape through exercise and healthy meals, quite an old-fashioned way.

Union told People:

“None for me. It’s not a matter of judgment. I’m deathly afraid of needles. If there was a way to skip them, I would do it.”

She added:

“And we’ve yet to come up with reasonable Botox in a bottle, so I’m just lucky I don’t have crazy wrinkles. I have a fine line around my mouth because I smile a lot. I’m not doing anything about it!”

The actress continued:

“My butt has gotten a lot better because it’s bigger. I do squats and walk on inclines. I don’t look like a scarecrow anymore. I should really back into rooms because that’s how confident I am.”

She deserves applause for her confidence!
