Nastassja Aglaia Kinski (born 24 January 1961) is a German actress and former model who has appeared in more than sixty films in Europe and the United States. She enjoyed her worldwide breakthrough with Stay As You Are (1978), then came to global prominence with her Golden Globe Award-winning performance as the title character in the Roman Polanski–directed film Tess (1979). Other notable films in which she acted include the erotic horror Cat People (1982), two Wim Wenders dramas Paris, Texas (1984) and Faraway, So Close! (1993), and An American Rhapsody (2001). She is the daughter of the actor Klaus Kinski.


In 2001, Kinski revealed that she suffered from narcolepsy in an interview for the The Daily Telegraph.

In 1976, when Kinski was 15, she reportedly began a romantic relationship with then 43-year-old director Roman Polanski. In a 1999 Guardian interview, the newspaper reports her saying there was categorically no affair and that she said "There was a flirtation. There could have been a seduction, but there was not. He had respect for me."

Marriage and children
In the mid-1980s Kinski met the Egyptian filmmaker Ibrahim Moussa. They married on 10 September 1984. They have two children together; a son Aljosha (born 1984), and daughter Sonja Kinski (born 1986), who works as a model and actress. The marriage was dissolved in 1992. From 1992 until 1995 Kinski lived with musician Quincy Jones, though she kept her own apartment on Hilgard Avenue, near UCLA, at the time. In 1993 they had a daughter, Kenya Julia Miambi Sarah Jones.
