Kim Basinger lands modelling contract
Kim Basinger is following in her daughter Ireland Baldwin's footsteps by signing with IMG Models.
Kim Basinger has landed a modelling contract aged 60.
The stylish star has inked a deal with IMG Models, the same agency her 18-year-old daughter Ireland Baldwin signed with in March.
The 'Grudge Match' actress is likely to team up with Ireland for some mother-daughter photoshoots, E! News is reporting.
This comes after Ireland - whose father is Alec Baldwin - claimed her mother was impossibly young-looking for her age.
She enthused: ''She looks like she's my age. Her body, I swear, it's scary.''
Kim, best known for playing a Bond girl in 'Never Say Never Again', said she has always encouraged blonde bombshell Ireland to pursue her dreams, whatever they may be, and is proud of her success as a model.
She recently told People magazine: ''She grew up in the limelight but I tried to provide stability and a quieter world. You just want them to follow their own path, and she totally did this on her own.
''I think she wanted to stick her foot in [the modelling world] and see what it would bring. And she's doing extremely well.''
