After five years as a cover girl, Kim Basinger turned the page on modeling and began to act on the boob-tube. She starred in the police show Dog and Cat (1977) and was featured in the miniseries From Here to Eternity (1979) and its same-named spinoff (1980). The alluring ingenue then moved to the big screen with arousing appearances in the dramas Hard Country (1981), Fool for Love (1985) and The Natural (1984). Throughout the ’80s, Kim’s star (and our pants) rose thanks to the James Bond flick Never Say Never Again (1983), a promotional Playboy pictorial, and the kink classic 9 1/2 Weeks (1986). The erotic romance had Mickey Rourke introducing Kim to cross-dressing, sadomasochism, voyeurism and an attempted threesome. In exchange, she revealed her rack and rump to us! The screen siren continued to make groins ache in the comedy My Stepmother Is an Alien (1988), the blockbuster Batman (1989) and the thriller Final Analysis (1992). By 1994, she and then-husband Alec Baldwin starred in The Getaway (1994), wherein Kim’s clothing got away so she could expose her three Bs!
With the neo-noir period piece L.A. Confidential (1997), the skintastic actress showed off her chest and butt cleavage to Russell Crowe before taking Oscar home! She then proved baby got back (and side breast) in the drama I Dreamed of Africa (2000), yet let a body double flash “her” ass in the Eminem musical 8 Mile (2002). The blonde bombshell seduces a young man in the indie dramedy The Door in the Floor (2004) and seduces all of us with her nude boobs and booty. Titillating turns in The Mermaid Chair (2006) and The Informers (2008) followed, as did a body double’s derrière in The Burning Plain (2009). In the drama I Am Here (2014), so is Kim’s left breast! Since then, Basinger re-teamed with Crowe in the comedy The Nice Guys (2016) and played a voluptuous villainess in Fifty Shades Darker (2017). Offscreen, Kim is an animal rights supporter which means she’s as beautiful on the inside as looks on the outside!
