In the latest issue of Rolling Out Magazine, Angela Bassett opens up about her relationship with that handsome Courtney B. Vance.

It was only fitting that Angela, star of “Jumping The Broom” be asked about marriage. And her answers were not the peaches & cream fluff you would expect from Hollyweird folks.

ON MARRIAGE: “When I got married, I was all in love, but then came life intruding in, and sometimes it’s difficult … I would look at my husband and ask, ‘did we do it too quickly?’ … But my husband was strong in his resolve. He kept reminding me that people go through this, and that we were going to be ok.”

ON HOW SHE KNEW HER HUSBAND WAS ‘THE ONE’: “I just looked at him and knew that he was a kind person whose core burned pure. Now he makes mistakes and so do I, but I always try to do the right thing and I feel like I’ve found someone who tries to as well.”

“And I honestly believe that he sees me and is interested in me, and not just what I do. Because I’m not always acting. Sometimes I have to let me guard down and be vulnerable. He sees that and still accepts me.”

You gotta love real black love.

The new issue of Rolling Out hits stands tomorrow.

    I’m feeling that, marriage is definitely not easy. I believe a lot of couples go into it thinking it’s simple. The problem is you’ve been thinking for one person and then all of a sudden you have to compromise and respect this person’s opinion even when you don’t argee with them.
