People couldn’t tell the real Auntie Angela from her fake wax double.
She is one of the most prolific entertainers in the industry and now, Angela Bassett has her own Madame Tussaud wax figure. The beloved actress has starred in films and television shows like Waiting To Exhale, American Horror Story, How Stella Got Her Groove Back, What’s Love Got To With It, Black Panther, Malcolm X, The Rosa Parks Story, The Jacksons: An America Dream, and dozens of other features.
Now, we’ve seen some pretty bad wax figures (Just ask the Queen Bey) but this time fans were floored to see just what Madame Tussaud’s came up with… in a good way! Bassett’s was so striking that fans couldn’t tell the real person from the wax.
“The wait to exhale is over, The Queen of Wakanda herself, Angela Bassett has arrived! The ageless icon has been officially immortalized by Madame Tussauds Hollywood,” Madame Tussaud USA tweeted. The 63-year-old was stunned by her own figure and had a surreal moment looking at a life-sized version of herself.
Check it out below along with the reactions and let us know what you think. They did that!

Okay, now I’m embarrassed. I honestly thought the one in the pink jumpsuit was the wax figure. 🤦🏾♀️

I don’t know who made this but they need to make all the wax figures for Black people. I couldn’t tell them apart until she changed her pose. https://t.co/5mk48nj05E

Seeing Angela Basset and now JHud’s wax figures look so good and accurate let’s me KNOW they’re playing in Beyoncé’s face. https://t.co/Oumy9xx6Xn

No, but can someone explain why Angela Basset’s wax figure looks incredible but Beyoncé’s always comes out like this: pic.twitter.com/s9Xg2klxfN

When you genuinely can't tell which one is the wax figure and which one is the real thing, there's a sculptor at Madame Tussauds who deserves a raise.
But what's even crazier is that Angela Bassett is 63 years old. How is that even possible? pic.twitter.com/zt97ryuJNr
