This may come as a shock, but Gabrielle Union is turning 48 years old today. The actress was only 27 when she starred in Bring It On, which means it has been more than 20 years since the iconic movie came out, and we cannot believe how fast time has flown by.
For those who forgot, the beloved film also starred Kirsten Dunst, Eliza Dushku, Jesse Bradford, Clare Kramer, Nicole Bilderback and more. It came out on August 25, 2000, and it was all about a cheerleading squad who was in for a shock when they discovered that their winning performance was actually stolen from another team. It was a big part of a lot of our childhoods, so the fact that it’s been more than two decades since it came out it seriously making us feel old.
But wait, what is the cast doing these days, you ask? In honor of Union’s birthday, we decided to check in on them all, and boy, have they changed a lot. Here’s what the stars from Bring It On are up to now…
