Waiting To Exhale

23 Dec, 1995

Bassett plays Bernadine in the movie Waiting To Exhale. After Bernadine finds out that her husband is leaving her for a white woman, all hell breaks lose. Bernadine life is upside down. On top of that, she has two kids to take care of. After realizing that her husband wants a divorce, she cuts off all her hair, burn all of his clothes, and decides to have an affair of her own.

I really wanted to work with (director) Forest (Whitaker). I really loved Terry’s book. And the chance to work with Whitney (Houston)—beautiful, talented, a superstar all over the world! Well, it was no decision at all.
