Angela Bassett Says Tina Turner Did Her Makeup On Last Day Filming ‘What’s Love Got to Do With It?’

Angela Bassett and the late Tina Turner became incredibly close after Angela was cast to play the music icon in “What’s Love Got To Do With It,” the 1993 film based on her story. Angela was nominated for an Oscar for Best Actress for her performance, and her and Tina’s friendship continued for the next 30 years until the singer’s death on May 24. Access Hollywood looks back on their bond and our past interviews with each of the ladies, including one where the “Black Panther” star shared the story of how the Queen of Rock ‘n’ Roll helped her get into character on the last day of filming her biopic. “She did my makeup and hair the last day … And I’ll tell you, she did my makeup as good as the makeup artist in a third of the time,” Angela said.
