    Angela Bassett believes finding the "right" person is the key to wedded bliss

    The 62-year-old actress has been married to husband Courtney B. Vance since 1997 and she feels that couples in the spotlight need to be "looking in the same direction"


    Angela - who has 14-year-old twins Slater and Bronwyn with Courtney - said: "Staying together so long, whether in the industry or not, I think the important thing is that you gotta marry the right person. Make sure you're both looking in the same direction, basically."

    The 'What's Love Got to Do with It' star added that couples should both recognise and respect each other's individual wishes.

    Angela explained: "You're not clones of each other, but you have similar or closest similar belief systems and, you know, pleasant personalities. Because we all have strengths, strengths and weaknesses, and we want to support one another.

    "But I think also recognising that we are each individuals, we have our individual dreams and desires and hopes and ways of doing things."

    Bassett previously starred in 'Black Panther' as Ramonda - the mother of the titular hero played by the late Chadwick Boseman - and believes that the movie star's "spirit remains with us" following his death in August.

    She told 'People': "(He was) truly, truly one of the most incredible individuals that I have ever had the opportunity to meet and work with.

    "He was diligent, professional, kind - he was there."

    Angela also explained how Chadwick - who died of colon cancer - always had "a ready laugh" on the set of the Marvel movie and had worked hard on the character of T'Challa.

    She said: "If we could just take a page out of his book, all of us would be even greater."
