American Horror Story: Coven actress Angela Bassett glammed it up for the latest cover of EBONY magazine.
Not only does she look fabulous, but on inside the 55 year-old mother of two offered some advice to aspiring actors, including how to keep going in difficult times:
ON HOW TO KEEP MOTIVATED IN THE ACTING FIELD:
You’ve got to keep a good attitude. You can’t think, ‘This is it [during the lean times], because that’s when it’s going to break open for you. You’ve got to be ready; you’ve got to be prepared.
Whatever you’re dealing with seems like a mountain to you, but we truly aren’t in it alone. Sometimes we need others to talk us off the cliff or to just talk to us or to be there with us [in order] to support us or love us.
ON PURSUING EXCELLENCE & STAYING GROUNDED:
I understand where I come from; the strength and the people I come from. I know what has been endured and sacrificed.
