Kim Basinger Returns To Modeling At Age 60!

LA confidential poster

BAM! And here you thought Kim Basinger would just be a mom and actress happily avoiding any talk of exhusband Alec Baldwin.

Nope. Girl got herself a modeling agent at 60! Basinger has been giving her daughter Ireland modeling advice for her budding career, and now Kim is signing up at Ireland’s agency, ING.

Kim Basinger is no longer just giving daughter Ireland Basinger Baldwin modeling advice from behind the camera. She’s now going to be teaching by example, after signing a contract with Baldwin’s modeling agency, IMG.

Basinger, 60, started her career as a model at age 16, two years younger than Ireland is now. As a Ford model, she famously was the Breck Shampoo girl before transitioning to acting, eventually winning an Oscar for her role in L.A. Confidential. And though she’s worked steadily, Basinger has also been relishing her role as mom to Ireland, laying low at the same time her daughter has entered the public eye. [People]

GOOD FOR HER! Oscars look good on the mantel but they don’t pay the bills, honey. No word on if she has grabbed a campaign yet, but considering how great she looks, it shouldn’t take long.

Oh the frightening movie this would have been if Nic Cage had been cast as Lincoln instead of Daniel Day Lewis. More entertaining, though? Yes, undoubtedly.

The Big Bang Theory’s Simon Helberg gives us a peek into what could have been.
