Interview de l'actrice Angela Bassett pour New Beauty en Aout 2019.
NEWBEAUTY: ALWAYS SAYING “YES” AT WORK CAN BE EXHAUSTING...
ANGELA BASSETT: But you kept thinking, ‘Are we working? Can we call this work? By what other names can we call this but joy?’ Otherhood was a great experience and it’s about being a mother. It is about that stage after motherhood. You grow them up, you nurture them, and then at some point, you have to gently transform and take your hands off of them. You have to allow your babies to go.
NB: YOUR “BABIES” JUST TURNED INTO TEENAGERS. THAT HAS TO BE A BIG CHANGE.
AB: Talk about transformation! They are in those stages—they are still a little bit innocent, but you can also see that they are teenagers. It’s that time that they are very concerned about what their friends think, and not so much about what you think. You get some nos, you get some yeses, and all you can hope for is that that early work you put in will circle back around.
