This Famous Actress (and Notorious Ex-Wife) Just Signed a Big Modeling Contract
Kim Basinger's career may be on the up-and-up once again
Ah, genetics. Aren't they a treat? It's rare for a model or actress famed for her looks to experience lasting power beyond age 30, let alone twice that... which is exactly how old Kim Basinger is. The 60-year-old actress, who got her start as a model in the '70s, signed a modeling contract this week, and not just any modeling contract -- Basinger signed with elite agency IMG, the same agency that signed her 18-year-old daughter Ireland, whose dad is Alec Baldwin, earlier this year.

Said Ivan Bart, the senior VP and managing director of IMG Models, of the representation, "Kim has a powerful appeal on screen that will lend itself as a strong asset for us to seek innovative partnerships across the modeling and entertainment platform." Frankly, we're glad to see the talented actress and one-time Bond girl landing a big new gig. We'd gotten used to referring to her only as "Ireland's mom." Come on, don't tell us you don't follow her on Instagram! [Huffington Post]
