‘I’m a big supporter of being natural, but I’ve done it twice. Just a little bit, not too much – I still need to express myself.’

She also admitted that she’s tried Ultherapy in the past, an ultrasound technology used to lift and tighten the skin. 

Bassett, who is married to fellow actor Courtney B Vance, also credited a diligent skin care routine for her flawless complexion.

‘I’m pretty passionate about keeping up with the skin care, especially being in front of the camera and on the stage.

‘It’s important. When I’m not on stage or on camera, I’m pretty sans makeup – I think it’s good to keep a clear, clean fresh palette.’

She also paid homage to serums, ‘good aestheticians’ and her dermatologist for having her back in the beauty department. 

Aside from parenting 13-year-old twins Bronwyn and Slater, Bassett has her hands full with multiple projects.

She recently began work on feature film Gunpowder Milkshake, which she said will be ‘strong and powerful for women.’  

And at the beginning of fall, she’ll reprise her role on Fox’s 9-1-1, a project she calls ‘a feature film every week.’

To top things off, her first Netflix film Otherhood starring Felicity Huffman – who is embroiled in the college admissions scandal that rocked the world earlier this year – and Patricia Arquette recently debuted. 

Though Bassett is an Oscar nominee, she admitted to a certain kind of anxiety over audience reception as she spoke to the outlet. 

‘Of course, when they say, “I wrote this for you,” it’s such a tremendous boost to anyone’s confidence, but it’s all about faith – you don’t know if a project will fly or if it will fail. 

‘You always go into it with the highest of hopes and expectations, but you never know what is going to capture the hearts.

‘You want to go in with the greatest of intentions and come away with great experiences and wonderful relationships made. 

‘So you say “yes.” It’s important to say “yes.”‘
