Angela Bassett has remained humble with her career despite several years in the limelight. Even though she is regarded as one of her generation's versatile actresses, she looks up to one public figure - Tina Turner.

Bassett recently shared on her Instagram Story two pictures of herself in a stylish white sweater. It was her cute way of paying tribute to Turner, widely known as the "Queen of Rock 'n Roll."

BASSETT'S TRIBUTE FOR TURNER

Bassett wore jeans and a white sweater, with sleeves rolled up. The 62-year-old actress's cozy sweater featured Turner's iconic image struck with pink and blue strokes.

The veteran star showed off her natural curls and puckered her lips in the first photo while looking sideways. Her facial expression emphasized the contours of her makeup.

A MEMORABLE CONNECTION

The "American Horror Story" star, who seems to be Turner's biggest fan, wrote the words "Tina" in both of her Instagram Story photos. Bassett also has a memorable connection to Turner.

In 1993, she portrayed Turner in the biopic "What's Love Got To Do With It." She noted that playing the music superstar's character was one of the most challenging roles. She said:

"Nothing as difficult physically, emotionally, spiritually, vocally. Nothing, absolutely nothing."

In addition to Bassett's tribute, the HBO Network just released Turner's documentary titled "Tina" on March 27. The documentary was reportedly the music legend's way of thanking her fans and saying farewell to all her supporters.

TAKING INTEREST IN MUSIC

Meanwhile, Bassett is urging her 15-year-old twins Bronwyn and Slater towards a musical path. Her strong encouragement came after watching Disney-Pixar's animated film, "Soul."

Basset said that her twins have musical interests since they love to play the piano and guitar as well as rap. She also insisted they make music their career since they have potential in that industry.

Bassett shares the twins with her multi-awarded actor husband, Courtney B. Vance. They have been married since 1997 and have shared a timeless relationship.

Another thing that is timeless about Bassett is her impeccable sense of fashion. She recently shared on Instagram a picture of herself in a gorgeous age-defying jumpsuit.
