Though Kim Basinger prefers to stay out of the spotlight, the actress made an appearance in South Korea for a cause she’s passionate about.
Basinger, a vocal animal rights advocate, spoke at a press conference for the Animal Protection Act alongside South Korean politician Pyo Chang-won. The actress later posted on Instagram about the conference and praised Chang-won for his efforts to bring more animal rights awareness to his country.
“Such an honor to meet congressman @changwonpyo from #skorea .. a great man trying to make a difference to stop the suffering of our planets best friends.. helping bring awareness and to have his culture #evolve Thank you for all you are doing for these precious animals???????????????? Stay strong !” Basinger wrote.
A rare, clockwise-spinning tornado touches down in South Dakota
South Dakota doesn't get a lot of tornadoes, but a twister there last weekend was particularly rare -- because it was spinning clockwise. The National Weather Service says the anticyclonic tornado only lasted for about 45 seconds on June 15. That was long enough for it to knock down seven trees at a farmstead outside of Estelline, which is about 80 miles north of Sioux Falls. Only about 1% of tornadoes that hit the Northern Hemisphere rotate in a clockwise direction, the National Weather service says. The weather service used radar data and video to make its determination about the South Dakota storm.
Basinger also posted about her fight to end the dog meat market in a 2018 Instagram post.
“Everything is about awareness… and education..Please post. They dont need your tears they need your help. Tell a friend to tell a friend to tell another friend???? @lc4a#PriscillaPresley Help stop the torture ……..because they think the meat is tastier the more they suffer ……they are electrocuted, hung boiled alive and or striped of their skin,” Basinger pleaded.

Though the Batman star doesn’t often post pictures of herself, her daughter Ireland occasionally uploads a snap of her mom on her own Instagram. She last did so in 2017 with a candid photo, praising her mom’s natural looks.
“Rare moment alert Momma Kim in the flesh. I have no idea how people are born this beautiful,” Baldwin captioned her picture.
Basinger has kept a low-key lifestyle away from the Hollywood spotlight these days, having only made a handful red carpet appearances in the last few years.
In 2017, Basinger celebrated her most recent headline-making movie, 50 Shades Darker, and made a rare red carpet appearance at the film’s Los Angeles premiere.

North Korea calls South Korea's F-35 jet purchases 'extremely dangerous action'.
South Korea's acquisition of American F-35 stealth fighter jets will force North Korea to develop and test "special armaments" to destroy the new weapons, North Korea's state media said on Thursday, citing a government researcher. South Korean authorities are "impudent and pitiful" for "talking loudly about reconciliation and cooperation between the north and the south" while buying more weapons from the United States, an unnamed policy research director at the Institute for American Studies of North Korea's Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement carried by state news agency KCNA.
