Dwyane Wade as well as also Gabrielle Union are a couple on the move.
The NBA pro talked to ET at the West Hollywood premiere for Shot from the Dark — a documentary he co-produced with Chance the Rapper — where he opened up about how he as well as also Gabrielle Union navigate being a celebrity, as well as also very busy, couple.
“Well, the idea’s definitely not the easiest thing from the earth,” the 36-year-old Miami Heat player admitted. “I think the biggest thing with me as well as also my wife — what we’ve always tried to do in our short period of time, especially being married — is usually just to stay in constant communication with each some other, try to support each some other in everything. as well as also the idea’s tough at times.”
“We may go a month without seeing each some other, definitely weeks for sure,” he elaborated. “in which’s common. although you know what, we love each some other, we try to make the idea work, although I would likely tell people out there the idea’s definitely not easy when you got two people who have their own careers, their own individual brands, as well as also you’re trying to have your own family as well as also own life. although you know, we definitely try to make the idea work.”
With in which said, their professional lives are beginning to move into the same realm. As Wade starts to think about his post-NBA career, he revealed in which he’s been asking his wife, an industry veteran at in which point, for a lot of advice lately.
“I always ask my wife for advice. I’m not in which guy who feels like he knows everything,” Wade explained. “Especially whenever I’m entering in which world where my wife has been so successful for so many years, I’m always asking about any projects in which come my way, anything I should look for as well as also there’s things in which me as well as also her want to do together, as well as also I gotta get my feet wet first before I jump into doing in which with her, although definitely. I always depend on her to give me the advice of someone who’s been from the business for so so long.”
For Shot from the Dark, however, Wade is usually able to draw via his own experience. The documentary the Chicago native is usually backing follows two promising high school basketball players from the city, who expect to overcome impoverished surroundings as well as also realize their NBA dreams.
“I know the struggle as well as also how I grew up,” Wade said. “So I know the lane of what in which story is usually talking about more so than the producing side of the idea, although I had fun from the process, you know?
Shot from the Dark premieres on Fox on Feb. 24.
