Kim Basinger (1953-    )
Kim Basinger is a beautiful woman who has always been able to combine her natural sexiness with comedy, especially. She's also not been scared to send up that image, such as when playing the ridiculously named Honey Horneé in 'Wayne's World 2 (1993)'.

Kim really made her name in the late '70s/early '80s TV series 'From Here to Eternity', and her first big movie break came when she played Bond girl Domino Petachi in 1983's 'Never Say Never Again'. She followed that up with shooting Robert Redford in 'The Natural (1984)', and in the steamy (no wonder the ice was needed) 'Nine 1/2 Weeks (1986)'. She then appeared in that nod at silly '50s sci-fi/B-movies, 'My Stepmother Is An Alien (1988)', and as the sweet Vicky Vale in the impressive updating of 'Batman (1989)'.

In recent years, Kim has won acclaim for her meatier roles, especially as prostitute Lynn Bracken in 'L.A. Confidential (1997)', which won her an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress. She also played Eminem's mum in '8 Mile (2002)'.

Kim Basinger was a shy child from Athens, Georgia, and still retains some of that shyness, so is an unlikely movie star because of that. A compassionate woman, Kim is a devoted animal lover and supporter of PETA.
