Angela Bassett Responds To The Possibilities Of Her Kids Acting One Day

The veteran actress recently took home the win for “Best Supporting Actress – Motion Picture” at the 2023 Golden Globes.

Angela Bassett is responding to how she would react if her children one day decided to follow in her acting footsteps.

While at the 2023 BAFTA Tea Party on Saturday (Jan. 14), the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever actress spoke about her 16-year-old twins Bronwyn Golden Vance and Slater Josiah Vance.

"They want to follow the success, but whether it be acting, I don't get any clues to that right now," Bassett said speaking to PEOPLE. "It's a little music, a little sports. But whatever they want to do, I support them."

At the 2023 Golden Globes, Bassett took home the win for “Best Supporting Actress – Motion Picture” for her role as Queen Ramonda in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. The 64-year-old also shared with the outlet that she celebrated her huge win with her kids.

"Actually, I went home and hugged my kids," she said.  "They were really excited for mom to bring home a statue."

During her speech at the award ceremony, Bassett shared some words of wisdom.

“The late Tony Morrison said that your life is already a miracle of chance just waiting for you to order its destiny. But in order for that destiny to manifest, I think that it requires courage to have faith. It requires patience, as we just heard. And it requires a true sense of yourself. It’s not easy because the past is circuitous, and it has many unexpected detours, but by the grace of god, I stand here. I stand here grateful.”

In 1993, Bassett took home the award for best actress in a musical or comedy for the Tina Turner biopic What's Love Got to Do With It.
