Angela Bassett Celebrated Her 60th Birthday with a Bikini Pic & a Perfectly Leo Status

Angela Bassett rang in her 60th birthday yesterday not with a cake or a small intimate party composed of friends and family, but with a bikini picture that’s deserving of some major props.

The Black Panther star posted on Instagram to strut her birthday stuff and pay homage to her fellow Leos (in the most Leo way) at the same time. All we can say is damn.

Bassett captioned her bikini pic, “Happy Birthday to all my Leo brothers and sisters. Let’s all eat cake.” (If you insist, Angela.) 

Sure, she starred in How Stella Got Her Groove Back, but at 60 years old, it’s clear Bassett never lost hers. 

Get it, girl.
