Angela Bassett has always been on my list of super hot, super strong celebrity women.  She smoulders in her latest pictorial with Violet Grey magazine. Here's a snippet from her interview:

V.G.: WHAT DO YOU SEE WHEN YOU LOOK IN THE MIRROR?

A.B.: A passionate woman who knows what she loves and has been blessed to be able to do it…and continue to do it!

V.G.: WHAT IS YOUR GREATEST WEAKNESS?

A.B.: Love…and sugar.

V.G.: WHEN DO YOU FEEL THE MOST VULNERABLE?

A.B.: When I’m told I can’t do something. When I’m told I’m not good enough, that I can’t have something, can’t go somewhere, especially because of the color of my skin.

V.G.: YOU’RE SUCH A STRONG WOMAN, I BET YOU ALWAYS FIGHT FOR THE THINGS YOU WANT AND COME OUT ON TOP.

A.B.: Not with everything, but that’s when you stick out your chest and you gather your strength. I was raised by my mother, and she taught me how. You can’t be in this industry if you’re afraid of a little rejection.
