63-year-old ‘Otherhood’ star Angela Bassett isn’t mincing her words about her earnings on the FOX TV show ‘9-1-1.’
In an interview with InStyle, Angela opened up about how much she makes per episode after rumors surfaced that Angela was the highest paid star on the show earning $450,000 per episode which is historically one of the highest salaries ever in television.
Angela says to InStyle: “Everyone wants to keep the lights on, but I’ve never been motivated solely by money or fame. For me, it’s always and only been for the joy of following my dreams. That’s what makes me feel alive.” She continued: “It’s about knowing your worth and standing on it. Being in positions and places where your worth is appreciated is a good thing. I’m glad that it can influence others. There is a bit of me that’s from a generation where we don’t talk openly about things like that. But I understand what generation this is today.” Read Angela’s full Instyle interview here and let us know what you think.
