At 58 years old, Angela Bassett is pretty much like a unicorn: a mythical, magical creature of beauty that you only hear about. She’s “black girl magic,” old Hollywood glamour, very sex-kitten, and the model wife and mother all wrapped up into one. She has the body of a goddess and can show it off better than women half her age, but as it turns out she’s very much like us mortals and speaks about it in People.
“Even though people tell me I’m impervious to aging, I’m not,” says Bassett. “The scale isn’t going down the way it used to. It used to be easier, even as much as a year ago.”
But even the scale is going to get her down. Bassett is taking the change in her body in stride. “We check ourselves out in the mirror every day, we see the changes but you have to just do the best for yourself more often than not.”
“I’ll say to my glam team, ‘I have great arms, you might want to show that!’ I believe we all have something—great legs, beautiful hair—so find your something, be proud of it, and accentuate it.”
