Angie B: Carnivore or Vegan?



Its been a long and arduous debate for us BassettHounds on the true identity of Angela Bassett's eating habits. Some of us say she is a vegetarian who likes raw food over meat. Where did we get this idea? In every one of the many interviews we read while BassettHounding, she is always quoted as snacking on items like grapes, broccoli sticks, and tofu. Does that sound like a carnivore to you? No, I thought not, but then some of us BassettHounds refer to Angela's upbringing in the fried bacon and meat lovin' south and her previous films when attempting to prove her meat eating habits. In the film Mr. 3000 starring the late Bernie Mac, Angela no less than devours a nice big slab of steak. Now unless they started making vegan steaks, Angela is a carnivore, right? No. We finally decided to look at the facts of the matter:

  • Fact 1: Angela Bassett's skin says it all. Glowing, flawless, not one hint of greasy meat stains in sight.
  • Fact 2: Much like fact 1, Angela takes real good care of herself. Poisoning her body with yummy Big Mac's doesnt fit well with the queen's desire to keep her shape.
  • Fact 3: And this is a good one...Angela Bassett herself said in one informative interview this week that she "loves vegan choices, raw food choices" and she'll eat whatever shes has to in order to get in shape "for any one particular role."

If I sound saddened by this newly found Angie B News, its because I am. My money was on her being a meat eating carnivore seeing as shes from the deep south and well...Angela was getting down on that steak in Mr. 3000. But looking back, it was probably because she hadnt eaten meat in so long. :) The only good news on this front is that Angie wont judge us if we get in to some good ol' bacon and eggs now and again. She says, "I try to eat healthy, but I won't get on other people's nerves about it. If you want to eat bacon, I'm OK with that."

So for those of you who were still wondering, our queen Angela Bassett is in fact a vegan. A raw food, celery stick munching, vegan.

This is where I get confused, because if you read(http://theguide.latimes.com/Angela-Bassett/lists/174444/angela-bassetts-favorite-weekend) she says "I especially like the scallops," and also "loves vegan and raw food choices" leaves her vegetarian state open for me. I would think if she was a vegetarian she would just come out and say "I am a vegetarian!" I think that she is still a meat eater, she just keeps it healthy. No pork, no fried foods (the little southern girl inside of me is crying), etc. I do know whatever she’s eating looks good on her. Sorry for making this so long, just my 2...I mean 5 cents.

I think you are wishing on a star, Manda but its ok. I feel your pain! I dont really want her to be a vegan either because what am I going to cook her for dinner when she gets home? lmao!!!! But in all seriousness whatever she is doing is working wonders for her. i cant say a thing about it...
