Gabrielle Union Reveals Her Surprising Anti-Aging Secret

At 41 years old, it's pretty safe to say that Gabrielle Union is not only aging gracefully on-screen -- she straight-up looks like she's in her twenties.

Though much has been made about Gabrielle's seemingly super-human ability to not age, the Think Like a Man star recently sat down with ETOnline to reveal her secrets to looking so young.

"Well, when I was young, it was like a curse, but I think my oily skin has worked as an embalming fluid," she joked. "I also try to keep my stress levels down and I started drinking a gallon of water every day once I hit 35," she revealed.

Of course, her mega-watt smile also helps.

Gabrielle, who's currently a Philips Sonicare spokeswoman for their new DiamondClean power toothbrush, admits to being "obsessed" with oral care.

"All my endorsements have come about organically," she explained about her new venture. "I was already using Sonicare, but the DiamondClean is like the Rolls Royce of toothbrushes."

But though Gabrielle's looks have pretty much remained the same since her breakout role in 2000's Bring It On, interestingly, her career has appeared to be more and more geared towards comedy as of late.

The actress has certainly found success in hit films like Think Like a Man and its sequel, Think Like a Man Too.

"I go wherever the check clears ... I would love to have Katherine Heigl's career," she surprisingly admitted. "If I could, I would just do rom-coms for the rest of my life. You get to kiss a cute boy, fall in love ... who could beat that? That's my preferred genre."

Up next for Gabrielle is her first time executive producing a film -- Lifetime's With this Ring starring her good friend Regina Hall -- as well as Top Five, which co-stars Chris Rock and Rosario Dawson.

In the film, Rock plays a comedian turned film star who is determined to reinvent himself as a "serious" actor.

"We've been looking to do something together for a while," Gabrielle says of her friendship with Rock. "We've been looking for the right project."

As for continuously making films with her famous friends such as Kevin Hart, Gabrielle once again gets candid.
