Happy Born Day! Our Favorite Angela Bassett Performances

August 16, 2011  |  

Mark another birthday in your calendar as one of importance my friends–legendary actress and fellow Leo (LEO’S STAND UP!) Angela Bassett turns 53 on this day. In the years that we’ve been blessed to watch her kill it on-screen, the Yale-educated actress has wowed us, made us laugh, made us feel her pain, and also wish we were toting the guns and abs she’s rocking (her body is seriously something sick). Who needs an Oscar when it’s a proven fact that you’re a beast? As a cheap but fun present for our girl Angela, I’ve compiled a short list of Bassett’s best performances. If you agree, be sure to run home and get your Netflix on to these classics.
