We’ve seen some GREAT figures on Hollywood actresses – but none QUITE as good (for as LONG as she had it) as Angela Basset.
Now, THIS is body goals.
Angela Bassett is one of the stars of the record-breaking Black Panther movie and has been hard at work promoting the film. She was still able to take time out of her schedule to attend the premiere of Ava DuVernay’s new Disney movie – A Wrinkle In Time featuring Oprah Winfrey, Storm Reid, Mindy Kaling and Reese Witherspoon.
Throughout her career, we’ve seen Bassett star in films such as the Hood Classic – Boyz N The Hood, Waiting To Exhale, How Stella Got Her Groove Back, Malcolm X and What’s Love Got To Do with It. She spoke to Ebony about the role she felt helped to define her career.
“Without a doubt, that role would be “Tina Turner” in What’s Love Got to do with It? It was real career-defining for me as a person. It was also just a big part of my maturation. Everything came to bare for that moment. You’re either going to sink or swim (laughs). It was one of the most difficult journeys, but it was one that I had to go on, and it still resonates today with so many audiences and with myself. Not to say it was the easiest because it certainly wasn’t the most joyful role, but it was the most gratifying and satisfying overall.”
She has spent over three decades in the spotlight and still looks incredible. Take a look below!
