Yesterday, Angela Bassett turned the big 6-0, but she's not going to let anyone think she looks a day under 45. On Instagram, the film and television actress showcased a bikini photo of herself, letting everyone know she can still rock it. Naturally, the Internet went wild. Here's the b-day bikini pic.
Angela Bassett certainly knows how to welcome a new decade to her life. The actress has kept a busy profile recently with a starring role on Fox's drama series 9-1-1 and standout roles in recent blockbusters like Black Panther and Mission: Impossible - Fallout. With this new bathing suit photo, Bassett also wants everyone to know that she looks good and feels good too, and she's not afraid to show it off on her birthday. If you got it, rock it.
When you see these photo, one ultimately has to ask themselves, "Does Angela Bassett hold the key to the fountain of youth?" And if so, where is it? Is she hiding it? How did she find it? There are so many unanswered questions, and I'm quite certain that Angela Bassett won't say where she's hiding that pesky fountain of youth anytime soon... even though several people in the comment section of the Instagram post are begging for the star's secrets. We guess it's simply going to remain a mystery to us, but one thing is for certain: Angela Bassett is looking absolutely stunning today, as always.
Angela Bassett celebrated her latest birthday with her husband, fellow actor Courtney B. Vance, and their 12-year-old twins, Bronwyn and Slater. Vance and Bassett have been married since 1997, and they seem to share a happy, healthy relationship in their 21 years together as a married couple.
When Angela Bassett isn't spending her time hiding that fountain of youth she's holding (I'm holding to this theory), the actress can be seen in a few upcoming movies. The first movie is Bumblebee, which is set to crash into theaters on December 21st. She'll voice the character of Shatter. She'll then be seen in the upcoming comedy Otherhood, which is expected to arrive on cinema screens sometime next year. That new movie also stars Felicity Huffman, Patricia Arquette, Jake Lacy, Heidi Garner and more. Angela Bassett is certainly keeping busy, and she's also working behind the camera more too. She recently directed a couple episodes of American Horror Story, and she serves as a co-producer on 9-1-1.
