It’s only 4:30, but Gabrielle Union is making us cry.
In honor of Throwback Thursday, the Being Mary Jane actress has shared a behind-the-scenes photo of the cast of the revered high school film 10 Things I Hate About You. Along with Union, the pic features costars Heath Ledger, Julia Stiles, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, David Krumholtz, Andrew Keegan, and Larisa Oleynik.
“Just a bunch of kids having the time of our lives up in Tacoma/Seattle … 1st movie & an experience that I’ll never forget,” she wrote on Instagram. “The best/coolest/most generous group of people to share my 1st film experience. What a time man. ❤ and eternal light #RIPHeath #10thingsihateaboutyou #CanYouEverJustBeWhelmed.”
Released in 1999, the romantic comedy was a launching pad for the young cast — minus Gordon-Levitt, who had already found fame on NBC’s 3rd Rock from the Sun — and spawned a 2009 TV adaptation on ABC Family.
For Union, playing cheerleader Chastity Church was part of an 18-month run where she starred in three of the most popular high school films: 10 Things I Hate About You, She’s All That, and Bring It On.
