Angela Bassett Plastic Surgery Before & After
Queen of biographical roles, Angela Bassett is 64-years-old and if media reports are true, the American actress has the net worth of $25 million. Now, that looks like good-enough fortune for ‘Boyz n the Hood’ star to splurge on herself, or in other words to spend on plastic surgery procedures to keep herself young and beautiful for the longest period of time.
Renowned for her brilliant portrayal of real life characters in movies such as Tina Turner in ‘What’s Love Got to Do with It’ or Rosa Parks in ‘The Rosa Parks Story’—Bassett always comes across as a strong woman. Critically acclaimed for her role as Betty Shabazz in ‘Malcolm X’ and Katherine Jackson in ‘The Jacksons: An American Dream’, Bassett always managed to win the hearts of her fans.
The Yale university graduate has proved her acting talent time and again and also won nominations and several awards for her power-packed performances including a Golden Globe and Academy Award nomination. How can we ever forget Bassett’s performances in ‘How Stella Got Her Groove Back’, ‘Music of the Heart’, or ‘Akeelah and the Bee’?
However, the mother of two and an active ambassador for UNICEF in the United States, Bassett is also believed to have undergone the knife to maintain her youthful charm and appeal. Whether or not Angela Bassett plastic surgery news are true, the actress never came forward to clarify. Although, many believe that the lovely lady is aging gracefully and there’s nothing plastic about her, the before and after pictures have a different story to tell.
Botox and Facelift
At 56, Bassett’s face is not just fresh but has a million dollar look to give young starlets a run for their money. The gleam on her face without any traces of aging can only be a result of Botox and facelift procedures. It’s almost impossible to have such plump, fresh skin tone without any wrinkles, frown or laugh lines on it. The forehead is clean and aging has no sagging effect on her cheeks. Bassett’s face has clear indications of Botox and facelift surgeries.
Jaw and chin Reshaping
Look at Bassett’s picture from her younger days and compare it with any of today’s pictures, the most prominent difference you will find in her jawline. The face looks more balanced now with the sharpness of her chin worked upon, to give an oval shape to her face. The hollowness of the jawline has disappeared and looks well-proportionate to the chin, at the same time changing the actress’s look completely.
Angela Bassett may never come forward and accept going under the knife, but with such great results, we are not complaining either.
