Stunning actress Gabrielle Union has found a huge downside to her continued career success - she barely has any time for her husband CHRIS HOWARD.

The Bad Boys II beauty, who's about to begin shooting two movies simultaneously on opposite sides of America, admits she just about managed to find time to celebrate her third year of marriage with the former football player last week (ends07MAY04).

She says, "I'm sorry to have been absent so much of the time as my husband has been making the transition from being a pro athlete back into normal world.

"He went back to college, and I missed the school thing of him writing term papers. Now he's started his own sports management and marketing firm. The name was just cleared - PRESTIGE ENTERPRISES."
