Kim Basinger Net Worth

Kim Basinger Net Worth $36 Million

A pretty face, a fashion model and actress to boot, Kim Basinger is one of America’s most prolific actresses. Acting seems to be in her genes as her mother, Ann Lee, was also an actress and a model. Her father, Donald, was in the music business and also worked as a loan manager. Describing herself as shy band lonely during her childhood, she started ballet and later joined her school’s cheerleading squad.

At 16, she began modelling and was offered a modelling contract, which she turned down to pursue singing and acting, but she later reconsidered and became a fashion model for The Ford Modelling Agency. After appearing in a few TV shows in the 70s, Basinger entered the film industry when she starred in the TV movie Katie: Portrait of a Centerfold. Her breakout role came in 1983, when she starred in the Bond film Never Say Never Again.

Her role in the Bond film was promoted by her posing nude for Playboy and this opened her up to various roles in other movies. Since then she has appeared in films such as 8 mile, Blind Date, The Natural, Fool for Love and more recently, Grudge Match. The vegetarian and animal rights supporter is worth a purported $36 million despite her filing for bankruptcy in the early 90s.
