Kim Basinger looked almost unrecognizable while attending her daughter Ireland Baldwin’s strip club-themed baby shower on Monday.
The 69-year-old former “Bond girl” wore minimal make-up as she walked hand-in-hand with her boyfriend, hairdresser Mitch Stone, from the party at Jumbo’s Clown Room in Hollywood.
The beaming, almost wrinkle-free Basinger wore a dark gray suit with a black button down that matched her black dress shoes.
The Post has contacted representatives of Basinger for comment.
Baldwin, 27, is expecting her first child with her boyfriend, musician RAC, 37, whose real name is André Allen Anjos. Her father and Basinger’s ex-husband, Alec Baldwin, did not attend the bridal show.
The actress, model, Playboy siren and beauty icon rose to fame in the 1980s, beginning with her role as a Bond Girl opposite Sean Connery in the 1983 James Bond film “Never Say Never.”
She is also known for her role in the erotic drama “9½ Weeks” as well as her Oscar-winning performance in “LA Confidential”.
Basinger, who turned into a recluse because of his agoraphobia, has been subject to rumors of having undergone plastic surgery.
However, she has never confirmed that she has gone under the knife – and Ireland has previously claimed that her mother is all natural.
“You are the most naturally beautiful woman that ever was and will be,” Baldwin reportedly captioned a since-deleted young photo of Basinger on Instagram in 2012. “Your skin care, workouts and healthy eating advice inspire me to do the same.
“Ladies, if you want to avoid Botox and other skin treatments, listen to my mom,” she added. “She hasn’t had one treatment because she stays (sic) completely out of the sun all these years!”
In 2006, the UK’s Evening Standard suggested that Basinger, then 52, had a forehead that looked “impossibly smooth, while her naturally ‘bee-stung’ lips appeared even fuller than usual” during a press conference for “The Mermaid Chair.”
She was also rumored to be the woman photographed under a blanket leaving a plastic surgeon’s office in Beverly Hills in 2011.
Radar Online apparently claimed that the then 57-year-old Basinger looked “almost unrecognizable” walking into the building, though it was never confirmed that she was the one hiding from paparazzi.
Basinger and Alec met on the set of their 1991 romantic comedy “The Marrying Man.” They married in 1993, got Ireland two years later and divorced in 2002.
The embattled “Rust” actor and Ireland have had a roller-coaster relationship when he infamously left her a heated voicemail in April 2007, telling her she was a “rude, thoughtless little pig” after she didn’t pick up the phone for a conversation in court amid a custody battle.
But their father-daughter bond has grown stronger since then – and they even joked about his voicemail in a TikTok clip last year.
Alec shares another seven children under the age of 10 with his current wife, Hilaria Baldwin, 39.
