Modelling contract for Basinger, 60

Modelling contract for Basinger, 60

Kim Basinger has landed a modelling contract at the age of 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 has reported.

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, perhaps best known for playing Lynn Bracken in 'L.A. Confidential', said she has always encouraged her daughter 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 [to the modelling world] and see what it would bring. And she's doing extremely well."
