For its 15th anniversary Flaunt magazine asked Oscar-winning actress, Kim Basinger to celebrate the event with her on the cover. The first photo they took of her was exactly 15 years ago – “I’m so incredibly flattered. We were flattered to get this call. That’s so cool 15 years ago to have done that cover. And I remember it like yesterday. I remember the whole entire shoot from the arrival until I left. I remember every picture. I mean, it was just yesterday. So now to be in the desert doing this, and that was in the studio. It’s just a very sweet gift, very sweet gift. Thank you“, says Kim Basinger.
About the social media : “How long do we have? Oh, dangerous. Robbing and dangerous. Although I’m infatuated and in love with the information—I’m an information junkie, so I love it. I truly love it, but I think we’re teetering on danger. Especially with young kids and teenagers and the way they communicate now and not having to go face-to-face. I just think there are quite a few negative things about it. It’s just troubling. It’s troubling, especially since I do have a teenager—I know what I’m talking about. But we’ll see where it goes.“
About life : “Well, I think people think of too many things as dangerous. My personal philosophy is, by the time I leave this planet I would have wanted to face every single thing I’m afraid of in this world. No matter what I have to do, no matter what it entails and how shaky and how undone I become. I think I would not be a completed person if I do not do that. So, bring it on!”
