MORE INFO ON KIM BASINGER: Kimila Ann "Kim" Basinger (often mispronounced born December 8, 1953) is an American actress and former fashion model. In a career spanning nearly four decades, she has appeared in overall thirty-eight feature films, five television movies, and nine television series. On TV, Basinger made her acting debut as Sheila in "Night Train to Dallas", an episode of the action/adventure drama series Gemini Man that aired on NBC in 1976 as well as an episode of Charlie's Angels. In film, she debuted in the drama Hard Country (1981), playing Jodie.

She came to prominence in the 1980s with roles as Bond girl Domino Petachi in Never Say Never Again (1983), opposite Sean Connery, her Golden Globe-nominated role as Memo Paris in the sports drama The Natural (1984), Elizabeth in the controversial erotic romantic drama 9½ Weeks (1986), and Vicki Vale in the superhero film Batman (1989). She won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress in 1997 for her performance in the neo-noir crime film L.A. Confidential (1997). Her other films include the adventure film I Dreamed of Africa (2000) (as Kuki Gallmann), the hip-hop biopic film 8 Mile (2002), and the action crime thriller Cellular (2004).

Basinger was born in Athens, Georgia, on December 8, 1953. Her mother, Ann Lee (née Cordell), was a model, actress, and swimmer who appeared in several Esther Williams films. Her father, Donald Wade Basinger, was a big band musician and loan manager; as a U.S. Army soldier, he landed in Normandy on D-Day. The third of five children, she has two brothers, James Michael "Mick" and Skip, and two sisters, Ashley and Barbara. Basinger's ancestry includes English, German, French, Swedish, and Scots-Irish.

She was raised a Methodist. Her relationship with her parents was tenuous, and her father's critical nature affected her emotionally from a young age. She has said, "I just couldn't please him enough. He never complimented me ever. And I saw a lot of silence. Children always read into silence as something terrible." Basinger has described herself as extremely shy and lonely during her childhood, and has stated that she faced many hardships during her school years as a result.

Basinger studied ballet from about age three to her mid-teens. By her mid teens, she grew in confidence and successfully auditioned for the school cheerleading team. When Basinger was 16, she started modeling, by winning the Athens Junior Miss contest. She then won the title "Junior Miss Georgia". She competed in the national Junior Miss pageant and was offered a modeling contract with the Ford Modeling Agency. She turned it down in favor of singing and acting, and enrolled at the University of Georgia, but soon reconsidered and went to New York to become a Ford model. Despite earning $1,000 a day, Basinger never enjoyed modeling, saying "It was very hard to go from one booking to another and always have to deal with the way I looked. I couldn't stand it. I felt myself choking." Basinger has said that even as a model, when others relished looking in the mirror before appearing, she abhorred it and would avoid mirrors out of insecurity. Not long after her Ford deal, Basinger appeared on the cover of magazines. She appeared in hundreds of advertisements throughout the early 1970s, most notably as the Breck Shampoo girl. She alternated between modeling and attending acting classes at the Neighborhood Playhouse, as well as performing in Greenwich Village clubs as a singer.

In 1976, after five years as a cover girl, Basinger quit modeling and moved to Los Angeles to act. After appearing in small parts on a few TV shows such as McMillan & Wife and Charlie's Angels, her first starring role was in a made-for-TV movie, Katie: Portrait of a Centerfold (1978) in which she played a small town girl who goes to Hollywood to become an actress and winds up becoming a famous centerfold for a men's magazine. She then appeared in the miniseries remake From Here to Eternity (1979) with Natalie Wood and William Devane. Her feature debut was the critically well-received rural drama Hard Country (1981), which she followed up with the adventure film Mother Lode (1982), which co-starred Charlton Heston.

Basinger's breakout role was as the Bond girl Domino Petachi in Never Say Never Again (1983), where she starred opposite Sean Connery. To promote her role in the Bond film, Basinger did a famous nude pictorial for Playboy. Basinger said the Playboy appearance led to good opportunities, such as Barry Levinson's The Natural (1984), co-starring Robert Redford, for which she earned a Golden Globe nomination as Best Supporting Actress. Her most controversial appearance was in Adrian Lyne's erotic drama 9½ Weeks (1986) with Mickey Rourke, which failed at the box office but quickly acquired a large fanbase on home video. Academy Award winning writer-director Robert Benton cast her in the title role for the film Nadine (1987). Several directors cast her twice in their films, including Blake Edwards for The Man Who Loved Women (1983) and Blind Date (1987) and Robert Altman for Fool for Love (1985) and Prêt-à-Porter (1994). The highest-grossing film of her career thus far was Tim Burton's 1989 blockbuster Batman, where Basinger played the role of photojournalist Vicki Vale.

In 1992, Basinger was a guest vocalist on a re-recorded version of Was (Not Was)'s "Shake Your Head", which also featured Ozzy Osbourne on vocals, and reached the UK Top 5. In 1997, after a three-year hiatus from acting, Basinger made a comeback as the femme fatale in Curtis Hanson's neo-noir L.A. Confidential alongside Guy Pearce and Russell Crowe. She initially turned down the film twice, feeling an insecurity at returning to the screen and enjoying motherhood. The role earned her an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress, as well as the Golden Globe and Screen Actor's Guild Award. She holds the distinction of being the only actress who has both posed nude in Playboy and won an Academy Award. In a 2000 interview with Charlie Rose, Basinger said that L.A. Confidential and her next project, I Dreamed of Africa (2000), were the most pleasurable of her career and that the cast were all there for the right reasons. She says that Vincent Pérez was the "most incredible actor she had ever worked with" and had the "biggest heart of anybody she has ever worked with."

Hanson cast her again, as Eminem's alcoholic mother in the hit film 8 Mile (2002). In 2004, Basinger starred opposite Jon Foster in The Door in the Floor, a drama with heavy sexual themes adapted from the novel A Widow for One Year by John Irving. She was next featured in the crime thrillers Cellular (2004) and The Sentinel (2006), and starred in the Lifetime original movie The Mermaid Chair (2006) as a married woman who falls in love with a monk. Her 2009 film, The Informers, premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January 2009. Her next film, The Burning Plain, was screened at the Toronto International Film Festival in September 2008 and at the Savannah Film Festival in October 2008.

Basinger's more recent work in the 2010s includes Charlie St. Cloud (2010) and Grudge Match (2013). She recently finished filming 4 Minute Mile for director Charles-Olivier Michaud, where she stars alongside Richard Jenkins, Kelly Blatz and Analeigh Tipton, and a German-Danish movie directed by Anders Morgenthaler, I Am Here. The latter work has been presented at the 2014 Hamburg Film Festival, held in September.
