Gabrielle Union's "Matrix" Audition Plan Backfired In A Big Way

172 tis. pregleda49

    Gabrielle Union shares an embarrassing story from her bestselling memoir "You Got Anything Stronger?" about the time she channeled her inner (and outer) Janet Jackson for an audition for "The Matrix." Then Taraji P. Henson recalls the moment she met one of her heroes, the legendary Angela Bassett, and the special moment they shared at a wild warehouse party for Queen Latifah.

      Gabriel I love the hair on you; I'm not used to seeing it feels weird to me but I LOVE IT!!!

    2. Jae Me

      I love Angela Basset too. I've loved Xmen and Storm. To me, she would've made the perfect Storm 💖👌🏽

    3. CaapriceTube

      2:20 - Whaaaaat, had no idea Janet auditioned for the role. That's amazing!! I'm sure it was right around the time she featured on Busta Rhymes song "What's It Gonna Be" she had that matrix look in the video. Aaliyah also auditioned but for the sequel.

    4. london11314

      they have to do more interviews together and a movie please and thank you!

    5. Crystal Masters

      No freaking way 😂😂😂

        And I hope that I am not here in the U.S. if such should occur!

    46. Rose Clarity

      She must be confused about what album cover shes thinking about, because Janet was naked wrapped in a white sheet on the All For You album cover.

    47. Vanity Prime

      And that role ended up going to Aaliyah, but couldn’t finished so it Nona Gaye

    48. Logan Jamez

      What roll in the matrix? And why would gab dress like Janet lol

    49. tammy p

      After Looking at this I'd really love to see them on screen again together. Not in something too heavy but something fun with more scenes together too than they had in "Think Like A Man 1 or 2"

    50. Esther Mensah

      🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣wow both of them are hilarious

    51. Ilé Yoruba

      Gabrielle is wack as a person and typical Hollywood sell out

    52. joetj

      Janet was also supposed to play as Storm in the Xmen movies

      1. Christina 19 y.o - check my vidéó

        hraero.info/contact/zox-2oBuo7a60LI/video These two in a movie 🍿 🍿 I'd be waiting, excited to see

      2. Grace Green

        @joetj well Angela was at Yale so I know that’s not true. No one even knew her besides the theatre community. She even wrote about it in her book. It was drama between she and Halle. Everyone wanted that role. It’s not even good so that’s why Angela didn’t do it. Janet was on tour and Halle just got an Oscar.

      3. joetj

        @Grace Green I do know what I'm talking about and James Cameron was set to produce a Wolverine and the Xmen movie for the big screen in the late 80s and Angela was the 1st choice. Janet was way too young to play Storm. She didn't give up the role for Storm in the Bryan Singer movies, she wanted too much money so they passed on her.

      4. Grace Green

        @joetj lol you don’t know what you are talking about. Angela was still at Yale doing plays in the 80s. Brian and everyone in charge wanted Angela. She didn’t even have to audition. She turned it down so quick cause that storm role sucked. And it’s a known fact whenever anyone brings up Halle Berry and Angela cause they go for the same roles.

      5. joetj

        @Grace Green yeah way in the 80s for a different xmen movie but not for the ones bryan singer did for fox

    53. Nerdy Girl

      Ordained🤣🤣🤣 y'all this was great! How about a three season series of black female actors on black female actors! The stories are too priceless.

      1. Amanda Delargy

        I never knew they were such close friends. I love both of them. When Taraji told James about the British Director at Magic City, I died! That is in the other part of the interview.

      2. Pretty~Pearl

      Is Taraji always drunk? I swear to God she's hammered on every interview I see her in haha. Nothing against someone having their fun, living their life. I honestly don't think I've seen her sober though unless she's actually acting in something

      1. DKY _

        And then she was acting sober...😂😂😂😂

      2. TurquoisePurple7 Sky

        @Brandon Barnswell I know? These people in the comment sections be hating hard on black women...could it be jealousy🤔

      3. Brandon Barnswell

        @Hello Last name how is talking about Janet Jackson corny?

      4. Hello Last name

        @MrGenexxx she's talking about being janet jackson, so that is corny , not original , people copy each other too much these days

      5. Hello Last name

        @MrGenexxx it's actually women being more corny and over emotional

    90. pineapple lulu

      why does he have 26mil subs but only a few thousand views? maybe if he posts with one direction members he'll get more lol James is underrated imo

      1. Hello Last name

        People subscribe for music 🎶 few views for ellen, kimmel, fallon too

      2. Anders Larsen

        Probably because most people only watch Carpool Karaoke etc etc.

      GU is a horrible actress!! Not a big surprise!! OMG, I thought he was gonna say, “u speak so well”!!!

      1. Boy Bawang

        @TurquoisePurple7 Sky Whoa!! What's with the name calling...I'm a troll for telling the truth!?!? Calm down there SJW!!

      2. TurquoisePurple7 Sky

        @Boy Bawang ONCE AGAIN, I AN TALKING ABOUT A SPIRITUAL LEVEL OF ACKNOWLDGING TALENTS AND RESPECTING THEM AS BLACK WOMEN. I COULD GIVE A DARN ABOUT HOW WELL THEY COULD ACT COMPARED TO HOW YOU THINK ARE BETTER ACTORS. SO STEP OFF! BYE TROLL

      3. Boy Bawang

        @TurquoisePurple7 Sky I'm going to have to disagree with 'they are both great actors'!! Taraji is a great actress, GU not so much. It's cuz she's a re-actor (i.e. Ryan Reynolds, Will Smith (unless he's portraying a real person), Michale Cera, Bruce Willis, Vin Diesel, Katherine Heigl , Jason Statham, Seth Rogan, & Martin Lawrence)!! They don't ACT, they just play themselves. They're the same character in every movie that they're in!!!

      4. TurquoisePurple7 Sky

        @Boy Bawang They are both great actors. I will NEVER DIVIDE 2 BLACK WOMEN BASED OFF OF HOLLYEOOD OR ANY PLACE IN LIFE. TOO BAD THAT HAS HAPPENED TO YOU IN LIFE🙃

      5. Boy Bawang

        @TurquoisePurple7 Sky Yes they are, but Taraji is 10x the actress GU is...

    97. Shaggy Rogers

      Gabrielle Union is a horrible person and a liar! Blacklisted by Hollywood, but they won’t tell you that. Gabrielle is nothing but a gaslighting and selfish narcissistic and manipulative woman. Terrible lady she needs help

    98. Pls help me to my dream of 10k subs

      We should all appreciate how James uploads funny videos for us to enjoy

      1Haters try to expose what's wrong with you, because they're are jealous of everything that's right about you. 2.I admire people who choose to shine even after all the storms they have been through. 3Some people come into your life and you just know you will never be able to replace them if they left.
