A lot of Angela Bassett’s labor and tears went into building her fortune. She has been nominated for an Oscar for her portrayals as Betty Shabazz in both Malcolm X and Panther and Tina Turner in What’s Love Got to Do with It. Thanks to her portrayal of Queen Ramonda in both Black Panther (2018) and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever (2022), her career continues to soar at the box office.
It’s no surprise that Bassett plays so many powerful female roles, given her imposing demeanor and impressive triceps. She’s been wowing fans with her skills since the ’80s, so she must have cashed in big time by now. Hopefully so, because she deserves them so very much!
Angela Bassett Net Worth
American actress Angela Bassett has a $25 million fortune. She shares that total with her actor spouse of over 25 years, Courtney B. Vance. Angela has played notable historical personalities like Tina Turner, Betty Shabazz, and Katherine Jackson in a number of biopics.
Bassett’s career has skyrocketed since it began in the 1980s, and she has won numerous honors and been nominated for even more.
Angela has not only acted in movies but also in numerous TV shows. Angela is well-known for her work in directing, producing, and activism in addition to her playing career. Unlike many performers, Bassett has maintained a rather steady career even until the present day.
What is Angela Bassett’s Average Salary for a Film?
How much Angela Bassett earns per film remains a mystery. The scope of the project and her involvement in it determine her compensation. We do know she has been paid as much as $3.5 million for a job in the early 2000s, thus her current earnings are probably between $5 and $10 million for major roles and less than $10 million for little ones.
The amount of money Angela Bassett made for her part as Queen Ramonda in Black Panther in 2018 is a mystery. Since Chadwick Boseman, who plays the lead, was reportedly paid $5 million, it is assumed that the other significant players in the cast made between $1 million and $2 million each.
We estimate that Bassett, given her track record and previous accolades, would earn closer to $2 million for her role.

What About Angela’s Property?
The Hancock Park home of Angela and Courtney B. Vance, listed for $6 million in 2007, has been sold. I’m guessing they made a tidy profit on the house they bought in the ’90s, which contributed to their $25 million combined wealth.
But Angela told InStyle that financial security isn’t her top priority:
“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. Now, it’s good to be paid. That is one thing that I’ve said to myself since early on in my career. I mean, I literally would say, ‘I want to work in roles that can change me and change the conversation. I want to work consistently. And I want to be paid fairly.’ 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.”
