Angela Bassett just celebrated her 60th birthday Thursday (August 16) with an epic bikini shot that most of us could only dream of posing it up in. Seriously. The Queen Mother is ageless — and snatched.

The Black Panther and Mission: Impossible – Fallout actress took to Instagram to show off her stunning figure, complete with a six-pack and toned arms while rocking a multi-print two-piece bathing suit.

Happy Birthday to all my Leo brothers and sisters. Let’s eat cake!

“Happy Birthday to all my Leo brothers and sisters. Let’s eat cake!,” she captioned in the pic.

If weren’t for the fact that our favorite auntie has been slaying our lives on screen for the past 30+ years, there is no way we’d believe her. But she is. And, the actress is living her best life while serving up body goals. This isn’t the first time she’s trolled us with bikini body goals, either.

Just this past May, she smoldered it up Instagram in a black cut-out monokini and wide-brimmed hat.

In a recent Porter interview, she shared her youthful figure is due more to  what she eats rather than crazy workout schedule.

“I’m regimented and rigorous about what I’m eating,” she said. “Diet is 85 percent of the whole thing for me…I’ll try to get to the hotel gym and do 30 minutes of cardio, and lift a couple of weights or something. But I’m not getting up at 4 a.m. to workout.”

Hey Everybody you good? Cold & Rain makes me miss #paradise. @capmaison come rescue me!

Happy birthday, Angela! (But, we’re going to have to skip the cake if we want to get anywhere near your fitness level.)
