A beautiful, sexy, full grown lady, Meagan Good looks good on February’s cover issue of Vibe Vixen magazine.. Inside the actress reveals why she loves Gabriel Union so much and talks about a past crazy love that had her walking on the freeway at 3 am calling herself walking to the airport alone.
On Why she loves Gabrielle Union so much
Well, the reason I love Gabby [Union] so much is because we did Deliver Us From Eva together almost 10 years ago, and she really took me under her wing. She went to the head of Sony/Screen Gem and she said to him, ‘Clint, this girl is really talented. I really want you to start working with her. I really want you to help her out.’ In this industry, especially in this industry with Black folk regarding Black women, it’s very rare where another Black woman will go to bat for you and want you to get a job knowing that you guys could possibly be going up for the same role. And that’s the type of person that Gabrielle is. She’s an honest and genuine person, a real lover and she went to bat for me. All those [Screen Gem] movies kind of came from that one relationship that Gabrielle introduced me to. It’s not that she taught me something in particular, but she showed me that there are good women out there that are not catty and that actually want to see you succeed.
On what she’s beginning to learn from her younger self, now that she’s reached her 30s
Oh, gosh, so much. I learned that I need to really keep my eye on the prize which is God and not worry so much about what other people think of me. And if I keep my eye on the prize, people will think what they need to think of me, good or bad. I’ve learned to love myself more. I’ve learned to really be okay with any imperfection that I have physically. I’ve learned to forgive myself for any mistakes I’ve made. I’ve learned to love other people for who they are. I’ve learned to accept people for who they are. I’ve learned more about what my purpose is and what I’m most passionate about. Definitely for me, I think 30 has really been life-changing, as far as how I perceive the world and how I perceive those around me and how I perceive myself. I’ve never had so much peace of mind, and I’ve never been so overly confident and I’ve never been so content with the journey. And I just feel good.
On if she’s been in a relationship that made her as crazy as her character Parker on The Game
Yes I have. [Laughs]. I mean, when you find yourself walking out on the side of freeway in a different state at three o’clock in the morning because someone has pissed you off, and you are completely convinced that you’re walking to the airport that is over an hour away, you’ve pretty much lost your marbles there. [Laughs]
