Angela Bassett Shares Photos from Magic Johnson's Star-Studded 60th Birthday Bash in St. Tropez

Magic Johnson left no stones unturned as he hosted the crème de la crème to his 60th birthday celebration in France.

If the pictures shared online are any indication, then Earvin Johnson aka Magic Johnson certainly spared no expense for his 60th birthday celebration. The former basketball player had the likes of Beyonce’s mom Tina Lawson, Samuel L. Johnson, Jennifer Lopez, and her boo, Alex Rodriguez showing up at the party in France.

Angela Bassett, who was also at the gig, took to her Instagram to share photos of her posing with the celebrant’s son, EJ Johnson and other party guests. In the first snap, the actress who recently turned 61, is seen snuggled in-between EJ Johnson and actor-producer, Spike Lee. Angela is rocking sunglasses and a massive laugh as Spike Lee playfully leans into her.

In another snap, the actress sits in a chair and is surrounded by stars like Boris Kodjoe, Chris Tucker, and Nicole Parker. The photos have garnered a little over 29,000 likes since she shared them some hours ago.

Some fans took to the comment section to celebrate both the former basketball player and the stars in the snaps. One fan commented:

"I love this beautiful looking group of people.”

Another fan gushed:

“Everyone was out there!!! Looks like an amazing time for real.”

One fan took things up a notch when she let Angela know that people often commented that she and the actress looked alike. In her words:

“OMG I LOVE these pictures. I would love to meet you one if you’re in NYC. People always say do you know who you look like and I say who they say, Angela Bassett.”

The actress looks as youthful as ever, and according to a report by MadameNoire, the Golden Globe winner has a strict diet regimen that she follows. The regimen is working for her as she showed off her flawless skin and smile at Magic Johnson’s birthday bash.

 

THE MAGIC JOHNSON BACKSTORY

And in case you had no idea, Magic Johnson first earned his nickname when his mates in high school saw that he handled the ball differently.

His fame as a competitor who led his high school team to a state championship in 1977 quickly spread. He later led the National Basketball Association (NBA) Los Angeles Lakers to five championships.

According to Britannica, Johnson achieved his greatest success in the professional ranks. But his success goes beyond basketball as he has become one of the most successful entrepreneurs even after retirement.
