"I trained in karate for a long time - I have an obsession with Kill Bill - I could kill someone in one move if I wanted to. Not the kind of trick you can really pull out at a party." Ireland Baldwin reveals her body is a deadly weapon thanks to her love of Quentin Tarantino's two-part blockbuster movie.
Kim Basinger's model daughter Ireland Baldwin is paying tribute to her mum's breakout role in 9 1/2 Weeks in a new ad campaign for clothing brand Rampage. The 18-year-old daughter of Basinger and ex-husband Alec Baldwin is the face of the fashion company's autumn (14) collection, making it her very first solo campaign.
The ads feature the blonde beauty wearing a series of dresses, fitted outerwear and fitted tops, but in one shot, she pays homage to her mum's sultry role in the 1986 erotic drama.
In the photograph, Baldwin recreates Basinger's famous image behind window blinds, sensually posing in the shadows and eating strawberries.
The young model credits her famous mum with encouraging her to pursue a career in front of the camera, telling Access Hollywood, "My mum was the one who kind of told me that modelling can really boost your confidence... Growing up in the spotlight has definitely made me stronger."
Baldwin follows in the footsteps of supermodels Petra Nemcova, Bar Refaeli, Gisele Bundchen and Irina Shayk, who have all been featured in Rampage campaigns.
Model Ireland Baldwin has broken her silence about her romance with rapper Angel Haze, insisting the media should be happy for the couple. Bisexual Haze, real name Raykeea Angel Wilson, confirmed reports she was dating Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger's daughter last week (ends27Jun14), attacking press claims the couple was just friends.
She raged, "An interracial gay couple, I mean that's just weird right now. We f**k and friends don't f**k. I've never f**ked one of my friends. Once I see you in that way, it doesn't happen."
And now Baldwin has responded to her girlfriend's outrage on Twitter.com, writing, "these gossip sites and articles need to relax. they twist words to make their lame publications more exciting.
"making this about race or the fact that were (we are) both women is rather outdated. this is a new world we live in people... our private life should be respected as well. a lot of claims have been recently posted that we're never said. reporters like to take... our words, alter them to their benefit and run. it's not cool. we're happy. we're healthy. that's all that matters."
Rapper Angel Haze has made it clear she is more than just friends with Alec Baldwin's daughter Ireland, insisting the couple is in love. Model Ireland Baldwin, whose mother is actress Kim Basinger, had fans guessing about the status of her relationship with the bisexual hip-hop star in May (14), when she shared a photo of the pair locking lips and another image of her gazing at Haze, alongside the caption, "this is what they're always talkin' 'bout."
Haze, 22, has now opened up about their romance in a bid to convince some of the more conservative members of the press to stop referring to them as just "best friends".
She tells Britain's The Independent newspaper, "An interracial gay couple, I mean that's just weird right now. We f**k and friends don't f**k. I've never f**ked one of my friends. Once I see you in that way, it doesn't happen."
She has also credited 18-year-old Baldwin with helping to change her view on what real love is.
She continues, "When you find love it definitely amends your perspective on certain things. I was dating a guy I really liked about a year ago and being around him and realising so many things about myself totally made me hate the traditional ideas of what a relationship should be, of what romance should be.
"You go out and you're searching for this Utopian feeling, butterflies; that thing where you can't stop thinking about them. It doesn't have to be so overwhelming."
It appears Baldwin is bisexual as well - she started 2014 dating surfer Slater Trout. The couple went public with it's brief romance on the red carpet at a party to mark the 50th anniversary of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue in January (14).
Singer Alicia Keys cheered on her toddler son as he made his modelling debut during the Ralph Lauren Fall 2014 Children's Fashion Show on Monday (19May14). The spotlight turned from the Fallin' hitmaker to her three-year-old son Egypt during the charity event at New York’s Public Library.
Keys beamed with pride from her seat in the front row as the tot walked down the runway in a grey tweed blazer, puppy print sweater and tartan pants. The R&B singer posted a photo of Egypt at the end of the show walking hand in hand with designer Ralph Lauren, and added the caption, "Egy's first runway show! Wow! My lil' baby! #proudmamamoment"
Also sitting on the sidelines for the fashion show in support of literacy were actresses Uma Thurman and Edie Falco, while models Tyson Beckford, Gigi Hadid and Alec Baldwin's daughter Ireland Baldwin helped mentor the young models backstage before they hit the catwalk.
Alec Baldwin's daughter Ireland has left fans guessing about the status of her relationship with bisexual rapper Angel Haze by showing off a picture of the pair kissing. The model, whose mother is actress Kim Basinger, shared her blossoming friendship with the hip-hop star on her online social networking accounts, releasing updates and pictures of the pair's time together.
The posts have become increasingly intimate in recent days, and on Tuesday (06May14), Baldwin posted a snap of the pair sitting on the ground sharing a steamy kiss.
The caption accompanying the image read, "happy cinco de mayo," in honour of the American-Mexican holiday.
She also uploaded an image of her looking passionately at Haze, alongside the line, "this is what they're always talkin' 'bout."
On Friday (02May14), Haze shared a sexy snap on her own Instagram.com account of Ireland looking seductively into the camera while showing off her cleavage.
The caption accompanying the photo read, "I just wanna say you're mine you're mineeeee. F**k what you heard."
Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger's top model daughter Ireland has made two major changes in her life after co-hosting the official Oscars red carpet show - she has dyed her hair purple and split from her boyfriend. The statuesque beauty has confirmed she is single again after ending her romance with surfer Slater Trout.
She tells E! News, "I love him more than anything but I need to focus on myself right now. I am focusing on work and school now."
Last year (May13), the blonde beauty gushed over her beau to People magazine, saying, "I would say he is my best friend. We have our moments but that's rare. We can act stupid in public, private or wherever and we are always laughing."
The 18 year old was also spotted sporting a new purple hairdo earlier this week (beg03Mar14).
Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger's model daughter has signed on to be a fashion correspondent for news show Entertainment Tonight at the Oscars. Ireland Baldwin, 18, will join the programme's resident style expert Joe Zee on the red carpet on Sunday (02Mar14) for live coverage leading up to the Academy Awards.
She tells Us Weekly magazine, "I'm not used to being on camera so it's interesting, but it's so much fun working with Joe. It just feels like you're having a conversation."
Her big TV break comes after her father, Alec Baldwin, announced plans to stop talking about his private life in public.
The actor wrote in a piece for New York Magazine, "I'm aware that it's ironic that I'm making this case in the media, but this is the last time I'm going to talk about my personal life in an American publication ever again."
Actress Kim Basinger has landed a modelling contract at the age of 60. The Batman beauty has been signed to IMG Models, which will handle the star's commercial and endorsement deals.
Ivan Bart, managing director of IMG Models, says, "We are proud to be working with a distinguished and talented actress such as Kim Basinger. 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."
The star is following in the footsteps of her 18-year-old model daughter, Ireland Baldwin, who is also signed to IMG.
Basinger celebrated her 60th birthday on 8 December (13).
Splash NewsAlec Baldwin's recent career could be mistaken for one extremely long audition for the role of The Incredible Hulk. Only last week, his weekly MSNBC show was suspended for two episodes after he was filmed using a homophobic slur against a photographer during a New York street encounter. But it's not just photographers who don't like him when he's angry. Everyone from his eleven-year-old daughter to American Airlines flight attendants have felt the wrath of the Thomas & The Magic Railroad star for next to nothing over the past few years. Here's a more in-depth look at five of his victims.Ireland BaldwinBaldwin's most astonishing rant was directed towards his then eleven-year-old daughter Ireland in 2007 after she missed a pre-arranged phone call. Foregoing any chances of a "Father of the Year" award, the raging actor repeatedly called her a 'rude little pig' while also taking a pot shot at her mother, Kim Basinger, who later denied getting her revenge by leaking the voicemail to the press.Jay From StarbucksA poor unfortunate barista named Jay had the misfortune to catch Baldwin on one of his many off days when he apparently failed to treat the star with the utmost worship, resulting in a very personal and public review on his favourite platform for abuse, Twitter: "Starbucks on 93 and B’Way. Uptight Queen barista named JAY has an attitude problem."American Airlines Flight AttendantsUnable to tear himself away from the importance of playing Words With Friends, Baldwin was kicked off an American Airlines flight in 2011 after he refused to turn off his smart phone. Despite inconveniencing hundreds of his fellow travellers, the word game addict still believed he was the wronged party and subsequently launched into a misogynistic rant on where else but Twitter.The New York PostAfter claiming that the New York Post's Gary Miller had assaulted him outside his home earlier this year, Baldwin was then accused of hurling a string of racial slurs at the photographer. When asked about the allegations by one of the newspaper's reporters, a charming Baldwin then replied, "I want you to choke to death."Daily Mail Journalist George StarkCertainly not the first celebrity to take issue with a story printed on the venomous Daily Mail website, Baldwin perhaps understandably took umbrage with journalist George Stark following the claim that his wife Hilaria had been tweeting during James Gandolfini's funeral. Less understandable is the vicious and vile way he chose to respond, describing the hack as "a toxic little queen" while also threatening to "put his foot up his f****ng ass."
