Angela Bassett meets her partner! The 9-1-1 star assesses his impressive wax at Madame Tussauds: “It’s like looking in a mirror!”










Angela Bassett finally met someone who looked as fabulous as her. It was just a statue of herself.

The actress, 63, attended the unveiling of her own wax statue at Madame Tussauds Hollywood this month.

The unveiling of the star’s statue closed a week marked with new additions to the museum’s gallery, including wax works by Jennifer Hudson and Tiffany Haddish.

The real-life actress wore a long pink romper and matching pink shoes.

The statue was dressed in a glitter covered jumpsuit made by Greta Constantine and shoes by Casadei.

“It’s like looking at yourself in a mirror! Dreams truly come true and I am blown away by the details and the execution of the artists of Madame Tussauds.

“My figure is truly remarkable and I am extremely honored to be perfectly presented at Madame Tussauds in Los Angeles,” said the star of What’s Love Got to Do with It.
