Expect some mother/daughter photoshoots as Kim Basinger and her 18-year-old daughter Ireland Baldwin now work as models under the same agent. The 60-year-old actress has just landed a deal with IMG Models, which already signed the teen as their member early this year.
"We are proud to be working with a distinguished and talented actress such as Kim Basinger," says IMG's senior VP Ivan Bart. "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 for Kim."
Ireland is Kim's daughter with former husband, actor Alec Baldwin. Ireland credited her mother for encouraging her to try her hands at modeling. In her profile on ELLE magazine, she said, "She thought it would be good for my confidence because I never thought of myself as a pretty girl."
Kim herself started modeling at age 16 before eventually expanding into movies. She will next be seen starring in sports comedy "Grudge Match" alongside Robert De Niro and Sylvester Stallone.
