Angela Basset will be celebrating her 60th birthday on August 16 and she’s already celebrating in style by flaunting her sexy frame in new photos she shared on social media.
MTO News confirmed that she’s having a star-studded birthday celebration in Los Angeles – with her husband Courtney B Vance and friends Magic Johnson and Samuel L. Jackson.
Bassett credits her diet for her fit frame, which she referred to as the “fast metabolism diet” and exercise regimen.
Still, “my greatest accomplishments are my family and my kids,” she says of her 12-year-old twins, son Slater and daughter Bronwyn. “Seeing them grow up beautifully and respectfully is an amazing thing to watch. They are delightful individuals, and they make me so proud.”
Bassett currently co-stars alongside Tom Cruise in the latest “Mission: Impossible” installment, playing Erica Sloan, the deputy director of the CIA.
“She’s recently come up in the world from assistant to Hunley, played by Alec Baldwin. And she has a very different way of taking care of business at hand,” she explained to Screen Rant about her character.
Angela said she “really was a bit confused” when she received the call from her agent informing her that she had bagged the role.
“I couldn’t believe it was this franchise, which is huge. And it’s been a part of our lives and some form of fashion, as you say, for decades.”
Asked by Screen Rant where she would you like to see her character go in the world of “Mission: Impossible,” Bassett replied: “Hmmm, I’ve not even thought about that. But I have thought about… about returning to see that. And I have to. Because I don’t know, I don’t think I fell off into a ravine anywhere.”
