Biography

Early life

Basinger was born in Athens, Georgia, on December 8, 1953.  Her mother, Ann Lee (née Cordell), was a model, actress, and swimmer who appeared in several Esther Williams films.   Her father, Donald Wade Basinger, was a big band musician and loan manager; as a U.S. Army soldier, he landed in Normandy on D-Day.  The third of five children,  she has two brothers, James Michael “Mick” and Skip, and two sisters, Ashley and Barbara. Basinger’s ancestry includes English, German, French, Swedish, and Scots-Irish.    She was raised a Methodist.  Her relationship with her parents was tenuous,[citation needed] and her father’s critical nature affected her emotionally from a young age. She has said, “I just couldn’t please him enough. He never complimented me ever. And I saw a lot of silence. Children always read into silence as something terrible.”  Basinger has described herself as extremely shy and lonely during her childhood, and has stated that she faced many hardships during her school years as a result.

Basinger studied ballet from about age three to her mid-teens. By her mid teens, she grew in confidence and successfully auditioned for the school cheerleading team.  When Basinger was 16, she started modeling, . At 17, she entered the America’s Junior Miss Scholarship Pageant, won at the city level and was crowned Athens Junior Miss. Although she lost in the state pageant to Sue Whitted, who competed as “Georgia’s Junior Miss, her beauty was profiled in the national program.  She had competed at the state level for the Breck Scholarship and was featured in an ad for Breck in a joint portrait with her mother. She was subsequently offered a modeling contract with the Ford Modeling Agency.  She turned it down in favor of singing and acting, and enrolled at the University of Georgia, but soon reconsidered and went to New York to become a Ford model.  Despite earning $1,000 a day, Basinger never enjoyed modeling, saying “It was very hard to go from one booking to another and always have to deal with the way I looked. I couldn’t stand it. I felt myself choking.”  Basinger has said that even as a model, when others relished looking in the mirror before appearing, she abhorred it and would avoid mirrors out of insecurity.  Not long after her Ford deal, Basinger appeared on the cover of magazines. She appeared in hundreds of advertisements throughout the early 1970s, most notably as the Breck Shampoo girl.  She alternated between modeling and attending acting classes at the Neighborhood Playhouse, as well as performing in Greenwich Village clubs as a singer.
