David E. Talbert and Will Packer‘s Almost Christmas is in theaters Friday, November 11th with an all-star cast including Gabrielle Union, JB Smoove, Monique, Danny Glover, Omar Epps, Keri Hilson, Kimberly Elise and more. The comedy follows the story of the Meyers family and their attempt to get through Christmas without killing each other.
Gabrielle Union talk to the Tom Joyner Morning Show about her character, the infamous BET lawsuit and being an advocate for equal pay for women in Hollywood.
“I can relate to my character. She’s coming home with all of this amour on from the judgment and shame and shade. There’s something about getting divorce that people feel is contagious.”
Where does her lawsuit with BET stand?
“Not only do I want to be paid the same as any white woman, I want to be paid the same as in any man. There should be equity when it comes to pay. The BET lawsuit is completely different. We have come to an agreement that everyone is extremely happy with. The cast and I are thrilled.”
Being Mary Jane returns to BET January 10 at 9p/8p CST.
