Nastassja Kinski (born Nastassja Nakszynski on January 24, 1959) is a German-born model and actress, and daughter of actor Klaus Kinski. She is one of the great beauties of the 1980's and 1990's.

By the age of 16 Nastassja had Hollywood at her feet but her potential as an actress was often compromised by her defiant personality. As a young actress in Hollywood, her room mate was budding movie star and Hollywood bad girl Demi Moore. Nastassja had become notorious for her relationships with older men (Roman Polanski, Marcello Mastroianni) while she herself was a minor. Her most notable screen roles include the title role of Tess (1979), (directed by Roman Polanski), Cat People (1982), Paris, Texas (1984), as Dudley Moore's love interest in Unfaithfully Yours (1984) and as Mathilde in ton image (2004). In the mid-1980's she settled down with Egyptian film producer Ibrahim Moussa with whom she had three children: Algae, Aljosha and Sonja. After her divorce, she fell in love with legendary composer/producer Quincy Jones and had another daughter, Kenya Julia Jones.

Her oddest role is widely considered to be Susie the Bear in The Hotel New Hampshire, where her character essentially lives her life in a bear suit.

She speaks German, English, French, Italian and Russian fluently. --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nastassja_Kinski [May 2005]
