Like most stars, Gabrielle Union has seen some not-so-flattering paparazzi photos of herself on the internet. But when America’s Got Talent judge saw some bikini photos captured as she showered on a yacht in Saint-Tropez with Dwyane Wade during their fifth wedding anniversary vacation, she was very pleased with how they turned out.
“The paparazzi catching that amazing ass shot, I mean hello, highlight!” Union, 46, tells PEOPLE backstage at America’s Got Talent. “I’m not in the gym doing those squats for nothing. It’s for moments like that.”
She adds: “I was like ‘Oh my gosh,’ because usually you’re looking at paparazzi pictures and like, ‘Oh God, they captured me exhaling or you know just living.’ That paparazzi is gonna get a gift bag, they shot my ass so beautifully! I was so happy.”
Union hasn’t been afraid to flaunt her bikini body on her own Instagram feed, too. As a cheeky way to encourage her followers to tune into an episode of America’s Got Talent, Union shared a bikini photo that left little to the imagination.
The shot showed Union in a string crochet bikini. The actress, posing in front of a body of water, paired the look with a bronze eye and shimmering lip. Union’s hair was held back by a wire headband.
