Actress and Being Mary Jane star Gabrielle Union has been unveiled as Elle Canada’s March cover girl. In her interview with the magazine she touched on the subject of money management and the importance of living within her means.
“From my first job, I’ve functioned like each job is my last,” she says. “What can I afford if all this goes away? So I don’t buy anything unless I can maintain it. Being penniless is way scarier than not having the right car. It’s L.A., we’re in traffic. Who’s seeing your car?”
“I don’t believe anyone should put themselves in a financial bind to be something for other people who don’t care about them. Your barometer should be ‘Don’t try to impress people who wouldn’t give you a kidney.’”
The full interview will be published in Elle Canada’s March 2018 issue, out on February 12.
