The 17-year-old model opened up to the mag about her her parents, modeling, fame, and more. Check it:
On why her mom (Kim Basinger) wanted her to try a modeling career: “She thought it would be good for my confidence because I never really thought of myself as a pretty girl.”
On her mother being one of the world’s most beautiful women: “She looks like she’s my age. Her body, I swear, it’s scary.”
On how she looks at fame with a little ambivalence: “Even when I get to the point where I’m acting and performing, where I want to be with my career, I’m never going to think of anyone as lower than me. Everyone’s the celebrity of their own life, you know?”
