One can hardly believe that it’s been 24 years since the Hollywood power couple, Angela Bassett and Courtney B. Vance said “I do” and tied the knot.
With the divorce rate in upwards of 50% in the United States, this loving couple does what it takes to keep it together.
No one knows this better than Courtney B. Vance, as he says it was harder to ask Angela if she liked him than it was to ask her to marry him.
The college sweethearts met while students at the Yale School of Drama. In the beginning, they weren’t lovers, just friends, as they recall, “the best of friends.”
For nearly 14 years they ran in the same collegiate circle and their bond grew deeper and eventually blossomed into a love that neither of them could deny.
At the time, Vance was in a relationship, and in a 2007 interview on “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” he said he could not remember his soon-to-be wife from their college days.
Bassett, on the other hand, remembered Courtney and his “beautiful ex-girlfriend,” who was also a student at the School of Drama.
After college, they went their separate ways, but the “How Stella Got Her Groove Back,” star kept track of Vance.
