Angela Bassett

Our she-ro and overall bad mamma jamma Angela Bassett has proven herself to be one of the most prolific and incredible actresses in Hollywood. She’s stunningly beautiful and has a presence that has made all the difference in the roles she has taken on. From “What’s Love Got To Do With It” to “Waiting To Exhale” and her successful television roles on “American Horror Story,” she has brought a power and engaging presence that has blown us away. So we were thrilled when she decided to hop in the director’s chair for the Whitney Houston biopic “Whitney.” She also was at the helm of two episodes of “American Horror Story.”
