Kim Basinger has apologized for making a number of “bad comedies” during her acting career.
The actress has garnered critical acclaim for her work in dramas such as “The Natural” and “L.A. Confidential,” for which she won an Academy Award, but Basinger has also tried her hand at comedies and admits she had less success with her funny films.
In an interview with the U.K.’s Daily Express newspaper, she admits, “I know what it takes to put a film together but I can’t help produce some really bad comedies sometimes. I’m sorry.
“I’ve made some bombs in my life but I came from comedy and worked with some really great people who taught me so much. I had great teachers so whenever I get to exercise that, I do.”
Among her comedic roles are 1987’s “Blind Date” alongside Bruce Willis, which was panned by critics, as well as “My Stepmother Is An Alien” with funnyman Dan Aykroyd.
She is currently co-starring in “Grudge Match.”
