An "Oscar" for playing a prostitute and plastic surgery that disfigured the Playboy star: interesting facts about Kim Basinger, who celebrates her 70th birthday
Today, on December 8, the American actress Kim Basinger celebrates her 70th birthday, who loved to play erotic roles, take part in candid photo shoots, and have affairs with famous men. However, it was not this that allowed her to build a successful career, but her talent and perseverance.
Not so long ago, the artist decided to fight for her youth and undergo plastic surgery, but as a result, she disfigured her face, according to her fans. OBOZ.UA decided to tell about interesting facts from the star's biography and show how she has changed with age.
First explicit films and an Oscar for playing a prostitute
The American actress became most famous for her leading role in the erotic melodrama 9 and a Half Weeks, and her fame was cemented by the role of Vicki Vale in Tim Burton's Batman.
However, Kim Basinger won her "Oscar" for Best Supporting Actress for her portrayal of a prostitute in L.A. Confidential. She also received a Golden Globe award for her performance in the movie.
Erotic photos and Playboy
In 1981, the actress starred in the movie "Hard Country", but it failed at the box office, and there were few new offers for filming, so the beauty even thought about changing her profession. The situation was saved by a photo shoot for Playboy magazine.
Having evaluated the model's external performance, employers began to send it new offers.
Kim Basinger starred in the James Bond film "Never Say Never", the comedies T"he Man Who Loved Women", "Nadine", "Blind Date", "8 Mile", and her latest projects are the films of the "50 Shades of Grey" franchise.
Novels by the actress
Even before her popularity, the seductive blonde dated model Tim Saunders, photographer Dale Robinette, and football player Joe Namath. For almost 10 years-from 1993 to 2002-her lover was director and actor Alec Baldwin, and then the actress tied the knot with stylist Mitch Stone.
Unsuccessful plastic surgery
For several years now, the artist has not acted in movies and rarely appears in public. However, in 2023, the celebrity made an exception and came to the baby shower of her only daughter, Ireland. Many people did not recognize the artist, saying that she looked like her colleague Mickey Rourke.
The 70-year-old star's face was too "stretched". The Bond girl, as well as the sex symbol of the 1980s, apparently had a facelift, which disfigured her face.
