Kim Basinger might have dressed like a man at the premiere of her upcoming film, but she still exudes that sexy style fans love. Starring with Robert De Niro and Sylvester Stallone in Grudge Match–which opens on Christmas Day–Basinger is anything but manly. Some reviews of Basinger’s gangster-type men’s suit are flattering while others deem she simply looked silly.

Nonetheless Basinger plays a vital role in the film about two retired boxers (De Niro and Stallone) who are coaxed back into the ring.

This marks Kim Basinger’s return to the big screen. This is the most high profile project the actress and ex-wife of Alec Baldwin has done in about nine years. She held several roles in films back in the 1980s and 1990s, including L.A. Confidential. Might Grudge Match represent a big comeback or a first time nod in her direction for her acting skills?

Comedian Kevin Hart, Alan Arkin, Jon Bernthal, Anthony Anderson and Camden Gray round out Grudge Match’s main players. Hart told US Weekly that making the film was akin to being a kid in a candy store.

“I got the opportunity to work with Robert DeNiro, Sylvester Stallone, Alan Arkin, Kim Basinger,” he said.

Social media plays a huge role in the way the upcoming boxing match makes news, which of course it does in most everything these days. If Kim Basinger promises that she doesn’t dress like a gangster in the film, might it draw you out to watch on Christmas Day?

It will be interesting to learn if ex-hubby Alec Baldwin and daughter Ireland go to see Kim Basinger in this new film.
