Angela Bassett

I would have to say honestly I was very pleased to be in a film whether it was good or bad with De Niro, Norton and Brando even if I don't have any scenes with them, I thought it was pretty good company to keep.More Angela Bassett [07/12/2006 12:07:00]
I'm just so blessed to be able to do what I just love and have loved since I was a teenager, since I first found it, and to be encouraged by others for it.More Angela Bassett [07/12/2006 12:07:00]
If you have a big voice, so be it. But if you do things quietly, so be it. It can be done. I think it was a destiny for her life.More Angela Bassett [07/12/2006 12:07:00]
I think we both have a genuine respect and love for what we do. Theater is sacred.More Angela Bassett [07/12/2006 12:07:00]
And what we do is sacred.More Angela Bassett [07/12/2006 12:07:00]
We don't take it lightly. It impacts us.More Angela Bassett [07/12/2006 12:07:00]
That play and those performances had a huge impact. It just changed the whole trajectory of my life. When [Jones] kills that woman at the end of the play, this simple-minded man who is gentle with a little mouse, it just spoke to my little girl's heart. I was the last one out of the theater. I was sitting there weeping.More Angela Bassett [07/12/2006 12:07:00]

When I was in school, my mother stressed education. I am so glad she did. I graduated from Yale College and Yale University with my master's and I didn't do it by missing school.More Angela Bassett [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
My mom was always pretty supportive. She saw me do plays and she'd always act out the parts I did. My aunt, who played a big part in my life, was a little bit more reserved, because if they don't see you on TV every week they think you must be starving.More Angela Bassett [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
I'm thinking about directing, but I know it's a lot of work and I appreciate what directors do and I would like to be good at it. The opportunity has presented itself four to five times, and I usually said no because of the script.More Angela Bassett [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

Maybe if you're younger you have more energy - but that's a big maybe. Because at this stage of life, I have more patience, understanding, wisdom, resources - and a husband. I didn't get him until I was 39. But I got a good one.More Angela Bassett [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
When I got married, I was all in love, but then came life intruding in, and sometimes it's difficult ... I would look at my husband and ask, 'did we do it too quickly?' ... But my husband was strong in his resolve. He kept reminding me that people go through this, and that we were going to be ok.More Angela Bassett [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
As an actor, you're used to putting on characters, taking them off, becoming someone else, doing your research, and working on that.More Angela Bassett [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
You can't always do that which you can do in your sleep. That doesn't fulfill an artist. You're looking for places where you can grow, in some way, whether it's a large way or a small way. I want to grow as an artist, as a person and as a woman. I want to enjoy myself and my life and the company that I'm keeping. I want to bring something to the table that's different than anything else would bring, but that has its place and value, and then keep moving.More Angela Bassett [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
