Angela Bassett showed off her SPECTACULAR shape last night - at the Mission Impossible premiere. Angela turns 60 years old in a few days - and she wanted to let the world know, that she's still got it.

We already KNEW that Angela's face was gorgeous. But she reminded us just how amazing her body is. Angela - who eats VERY healthy and uses natural treatments to maintain her youthful look - exercised twice a day, every day.

The result of her healthy lifestyle are evident. What woman do you know that looks this good at age 60?


Bassett, who turns 60 in August, echoed the sentiments of top weight-loss experts, who say diet is more important than exercise for staying slim and healthy. 

“I’m regimented and rigorous about what I’m eating,” Angela says. Bassett also works out three to four days week. She does cardio exercise to burn calories and fat, and lifts weights to tone her muscles.

Angela has a fitness trainer but said she isn’t obsessive about working out, despite her flat abs and chiseled arms. “[I’ll] do 30 minutes of cardio, and lift a couple of weights or something,” Bassett said. “But I’m not getting up at 4 a.m. to work out.”

Bassett, who has barely aged during the past 20 years, said she gets mildly annoyed when people express shock and amazement at how healthy and young she looks. 

Angela said the implication is that when you get older you should look frail, flabby, and wrinkled.

“What do they expect? For you to be completely broken down?” she asked.
