Gabrielle Union: “I Have Had 8 Or 9 Miscarriages”

Being Mary Jane star Gabrielle Union is opening up about her struggles with infertility, failed IVF treatments, and several miscarriages.

“I have had eight or nine miscarriages,” the actress, 44, writes in her new book We’re Going to Need More Wine, according to People. “For three years, my body has been a prisoner of trying to get pregnant—I’ve either been about to go into an IVF cycle, in the middle of an IVF cycle, or coming out of an IVF cycle.”

Union has been married to NBA player Dwyane Wade since 2014 and is stepmom to his three sons — Zaire, 15, and Zion, 10, and Xavier, 3 — from previous relationships.

“I never wanted kids,” she shared. “Then I became a stepmom, and there was no place I’d rather be than with them.”

The Birth of a Nation actress has had to deal with non-stop pregnancy rumors.

“Once a month I look like I’m in my second trimester because I’m bloated,” she shared, referring to the side-effects of her IVF injections. “It leads to the questions and it leads to the rumors and anytime I go into a doctor’s office I feel like I’m a member of SEAL Team Six undercover because I don’t want people to speculate.”

Through it all, she has faced societal pressures and stereotypes.

“For so many women, and not just women in the spotlight, people feel very entitled to know, ‘Do you want kids?’” Union said. “A lot of people, especially people that have fertility issues, just say ‘no’ because that’s a lot easier than being honest about whatever is actually going on. People mean so well, but they have no idea the harm or frustration it can cause.”

Chris Hemsworth On Marriage, Family & Technology

Thor star Chris Hemsworth covers the November issue of GQ Australia and opens up about family life with wife Elsa Pataky and their three children — daughter India, 5, and 3-year-old twin sons Tristan and Sasha.

On starting his family amid his booming career: “My wife and I fell in love, had kids, didn’t really see each other for a few years, then fell back in love.”

On Hollywood being “suffocating” : “You stop becoming a person. You have nothing to draw from because you’re living in this world of pretend on and off the screen.”

On Elsa’s career sacrifices: “In terms of work, she’s certainly given up more than I have. She’d like me to step back and be at home with the kids more, and of course, I want that, too. But I feel like I’m at this crucial point in my career—I’ve just got to set up for longevity or I’ll slip off.”

On having kids: “Once you have children, every instinct and every moment of your time is consumed by that. You’ve got nothing for each other, so make sure you have date night even if it’s once in a blue moon, because most of the time you’re just too tired and you’d actually prefer to sleep. There’s no shortage of how much I tell her I love her. But I guess there’s no detail in it, why or how.”

On working on being a more thoughtful husband: “It’s funny. I can be so attentive and listen to people I hardly know, then you get home and you’re like, ‘What was that? The ‘Yeah, no, that sounds good.’ Why do we do that? But you’ve got to switch off at some point, you know? I prefer the efficiency of phone calls. With texts, the back and forth pulls me away from the kids and what I’m doing. Not to say I don’t do it. But as a society, we’re close to not communicating verbally anymore.”

On when he was shooting Avengers: Infinity War with the Guardians of the Galaxy cast and no one was talking in between takes: “There was a circle of people sitting on their phones, so I was like, ‘Hey, remember when we used to talk to each other?’ Chris Pratt gets up and goes, ‘F–k. I know, man. It’s f–ked, isn’t it?’ And he throws his phone down.”

On technology addiction: “I don’t know about you, but I find my phone gives me a fair bit of anxiety. When you get a text, the dopamine released in your brain is like a drug. It’s the same reaction that you might have to cocaine or alcohol or whatever—when you see it, it releases something. Don’t have your phone next to your bed, for starters. Don’t take it to dinner, because you’re not giving anyone your attention anymore. Also in the past, our information sources had all sorts of ends—a newspaper comes to the end, it’s finished. You stop. A book, there’s a finishing point or there’s a chapter. But Instagram, it’s an endless feed. Facebook, it’s endless. The news is endless. This is now the danger. We don’t stop because there are no ends—there’s nothing to limit your usage and you don’t get to the bottom. That’s the problem.”

Julia Roberts: ‘I’m A Regular Soccer Mom’

Pretty Woman star Julia Roberts covers the November issue of Harper’s Bazaar U.K. and opens up about family life with husband, cinematographer Danny Moder, and their three children — 12-year-old twins Phinnaeus and Hazel and 10-year-old son Henry.

On how marriage and motherhood changed her: “It was meeting Danny…finding my person. When I think about what makes my life my life, and makes sense and just shine inside of me, it’s him. Everything has come from that for me.”

On what she was like when she was younger: “I was my priority, a selfish little brat running around making films.”

On working on several films with her husband: “There’s comfort there, but also terror, which is a good combination. Terror because the person I want to impress most is looking right at me.”

On being a regular “soccer mom” and housewife: “If I wasn’t here today, I’d be in the carpool lane ferrying my kids to school.”

On turning 50 and preferring to look ahead rather than back: “Too much thinking and pondering, it’s exhausting me. Because we’re still moving forward, aren’t we?”

On how she rarely pursues new roles: “I just wait to see what comes along, as opposed to looking for it. It makes it fun and organic…there’s an almost unfair bar that a script has to attain for me to say, ‘I’m going to drop everything for this.’ Sometimes I think, ‘I’m pretending my name is Jane and I work in a bank. That’s kinda silly – I’m a grown-up woman!”

On feeling content about what she has already achieved in her career: “Deep down, we all know you can’t stand on the top point of a pinnacle on your tiptoes, and not at some point lose your balance, or get tired, or say, ‘OK somebody else take over, I have to go to the bathroom.’ There are great things I’ve accomplished and I’d be happy to accomplish more, of course, to impress my children and my husband. But you know what? I’ve been spoilt already.”
