Angela is featured on the cover of the March 2007 edition of More Magazine which is in stores now.
It details the book; following her life and ending with questioning her on handling twins at her age. They bring up the fact that Angela will be in her 60’s when her kids enter college, but Angie quickly reminds them that she will be a good looking 60. (Which we all know to be the truth, since Mrs. Angie B only gets better with time ;-)
Along the way they have added interviews with several of Angela’s friends and what they remember during certain times of Angela's life.
Angela Bassett: Use what you can’t undo
Actress Angela Bassett gets candid about the rocky relationship with her father in an interview with More magazine.
As a child, Bassett said, she rarely saw her dad. Once she was in college, the visits were distressing at best. On one occasion, Bassett said her father tried to give her marijuana. On another visit, what should have been a sweet kiss goodbye was anything but. Bassett’s not-so-fatherly figure put his tongue in her mouth.
“When he did that, I was just angry, and angry at myself that I didn’t slap the ---- out of him,” Bassett told the mag. Instead, the 48-year-old actress said she opted to hold on to the emotions as fuel for future acting gigs. “Use it,” Bassett said. “I can’t undo it.”
