Seriously. She’s awesome.
She played an aging porn star in the new film, Meet Monica Velour, and bared all during some scenes.
"I didn't know whether I could do it, because to be that stripped of makeup, clothes, shoes, in Hollywood, you have to be beautiful; you have to be desirable. And that's why so many woman of my age or even younger are pushed to Botox and plastic surgery, all the things that people say, 'Why do women do this?' Where do you go in your 50s in your career?"
Because Kim’s character is a washed-up porn star, she’s very poor in the movie and finds herself in many places with bad lighting — enhancing the wrinkles even more.
"Can you imagine? We make fun of those things, and they're in the culture now. It's like if you're not using Botox, it's like, 'Really, you should do it.' I look at people like Judi Dench, who's in her 70s, and I think, 'What the hell am I frightened of? This is a trailer park [where Monica Velour lives]. There's no beautiful lighting.'"
The subculture of porn is fascinating — can’t wait to check this out!
