Angela Bassett has long been our fitness inspiration so it’s no wonder she rocks her new lingerie shoot for Violet Magazine. In bustiers, silk robes, stockings and leopard heels, Angela sizzles in a sultry black and white spread for the style magazine.

Inside, she opens up about her self image, greatest weaknesses, the times she feels most vulnerable and what husband Courtney B. Vance says when she gets dressed up. Check out pictures and excerpts below:

On what she sees when she looks in the mirror:
A passionate woman who knows what she loves and has been blessed to be able to do it…and continue to do it!

On her greatest weaknesses:
Love and Sugar

On when she’s most vulnerable:
When I’m told I can’t

On her prep time and what her husband says when she gets ready:
