Career

Born in Berlin, Kinski is the daughter of the late German actor Klaus Kinski from his marriage to actress Ruth Brigitte Tocki. Her parents divorced in 1968.

Kinski's foray into the spotlight began in her native Germany where she started out as a model. At the age of 13, the German New Wave actress Lisa Kreuzer placed her in the role of the dumb Mignon in Wim Wenders' film The Wrong Move. In her mid-teens she starred in the British Hammer Film Productions' horror film To the Devil a Daughter (1976). Kinski has gained a certain notoriety through her nude appearances in these films whilst still a minor. This is linked to another controversy as to the exact year of her birth, which was apparently reported to the American authorities as 1959, though German records show that she was actually born in 1961. She has since stated that as a child she felt exploited by the industry and told a journalist from W Magazine, "If I had had somebody to protect me or if I had felt more secure about myself, I would not have accepted certain things. Nudity things. And inside it was just tearing me apart". [2].

At 16, Kinski began a romantic relationship with director Roman Polanski, who was 28 years her senior. Polanski urged her to study acting with Lee Strasberg in the U.S.A. and went on to cast her in his film, Tess. Shortly after this on-screen success, legendary photographer Richard Avedon photographed Kinski with a serpent coiled around her naked body. The poster of this photo contributed to Kinski's renown as a popular icon. Roman Polański (born August 18, 1933) is an Academy Award winning film director, writer, actor, producer. ...

In 1982 Kinski appeared as "Leila" the 'circus girl' in the Francis Ford Coppola/Dean Tavoularis collaboration One from the Heart which bankrupted Coppola's American Zoetrope studio. In 1982 she made the hit movie Cat People, and then the films Unfaithfully Yours, and The Hotel New Hampshire, which performed poorly at the box office and with critics. Critics praised her performance in Paris, Texas, and the film won awards at Cannes, but in the U.S the film was not widely released. Kinski then split her time between Europe and the United States, making Moon In The Gutter (1983), Harem (1985) and Torrents Of Spring (1989) in the former, and Exposed (1983), Maria's Lovers (1984) and Revolution (1985) in the latter.
