Clovers forever! It’s been nearly 15 years since Gabrielle Union had a dance-off with Kirsten Dunst in the 2000 hit Bring It On, but that doesn’t mean she can’t still fit in her cheerleader uniform. The actress recently told Us Weekly that she actually has a Clover high school uniform in her closet.
“I had a replica made. Just for fun…or not,” she teased at the Top Five premiere in NYC on Wednesday, Dec. 2.
Union, 42, starred in the teen comedy with Dunst (Torrance Shipman), Eliza Dushku (Missy Pantone), and Jesse Bradford (Cliff Pantone). She played Isis, the team captain of the East Compton Clover cheerleading squad that competes against rival Dunst and her Toros squad.
“We would always all be together — Toros, Clovers,” Union recalled to Us on the red carpet. “We had a lot of fun and we continue to have a lot of fun together whenever we’re all together. It’s a movie and a gift and a friendship that keeps on giving.”
As for still knowing the cheers by heart? “I don’t remember the choreography,” she told Time magazine earlier this week. “What’s crazy is every Halloween there are groups of people who go as the Compton Clovers and the Toros, and they do the routine when they get to the party or on the streets. I’ve run into these groups of people dressed as [my character] Isis,” she said. “…They will flank me, and magically it comes back. It’s like muscle memory. I go right back to San Diego, filming the movie, and I remember!”
She’s also been pressured to sing the songs. On Nov. 2, Union belted out “There must be some Clovers in the atmosphere!” on Watch What Happens Live.
