This sexy American celebrity has spent 35 years of her life in the entertainment industry, and it does not look like Angela Bassett has any plans of stopping yet. The beautiful actress has racked a whopping 63 nominations and 16 awards throughout her lengthy career.
Her ancestors were once slaves, and her great-grandfather took their last name from his former owner. She grew up separate from her family as it was hard to make ends meet. Fortunately, her father’s sister loved and treated her well.
Angela Bassett first took an interest in the entertainment industry with the rise of the famous pop band, Jackson 5. She dreamt of marrying one of the members, and though it never happened, we are sure that it was a dream shared by many young girls during that time.
Her mother took an active part in her education and encouraged her to get high grades. As such, Angela Bassett became a consistent achiever throughout her high school years.
The lovely celebrity took up a degree in African-American studies and later obtained a master’s degree in drama. She received both grades from the prestigious Yale University. Later on in 2018, the talented actress also accepted an honorary doctorate from her alma mater.
After graduation, Angela Bassett took up odd jobs while looking for acting work. Early on in her career, she appeared on stage on the theater productions Black Girl, Henry IV Part 1, and Joe Turner’s Come and Gone.
In her first several years of acting in Hollywood, this hot actress has participated in some high-profile shows, including Boyz n the Hood, Malcolm X, and The Jacksons: An American Dream. She gained more prominence in the Tina Turner biopic, What’s Love Got to Do with It. Though she only had a month to prepare for the role, Angela Bassett performed outstandingly.
The attractive woman has shared a bikini photo on her 60th birthday, and she looked amazing! Angela Bassett is active on Instagram with more than 3 million followers on her Instagram and half a million ones on Twitter. Her intense fitness and skincare regimen keeps her body in tiptop shape, so her boobs and ass are as perky as anyone under 40.
She tied the knot with Courtney Vance in 1997. Unlike other Hollywood couples, it looks like the couple is still going strong. They met in college in the 80s, but their relationship only blossomed in the 90s. They have two children.
More recently, her well-known works include Olympus Has Fallen, London Has Fallen, Black Panther, and Avengers: Endgame. On television, she stars in the procedural series 9-1-1 and the documentary The Imagineering Story. Check out more of this sizzling woman in our exclusive collection of photos.
