Ireland Baldwin’s modelling doubts

Ireland Baldwin would like to end up in the film industry, rather than modelling.

The stunning 17-year-old is following in the footsteps of her mother, Kim Basinger, by breaking into the fashion industry.

Since starting out, she has modelled swimwear and is apparently signed to two leading agencies.

However, it seems the pretty blonde is having second thoughts.

"[It's] much harder than I anticipated,” she sighed to Du Jour magazine.

“It really takes a lot out of you. Though, it is really fun and I never thought I would meet all these lovely people.”

Ireland is the daughter of Kim and her ex-husband, actor Alec Baldwin.

Should modelling fall flat, the star wouldn't mind taking inspiration from both her parents’ career paths.

“My end goal is to act, write and direct... I grew up on my parents’ movie sets and so desperately wanted to be in their position. I would love to be in a comedy or remake of a classic novel," she gushed.

While Ireland might be the envy of many teenagers with her good looks and famous parents, she insists her life hasn't always been easy.

The star never thought of herself as beautiful and entered the fashion industry because of her mother's advice.

"She thought it would be good for my confidence, because I never thought of myself as a pretty girl," Ireland recently told ELLE.

"She looks like she's my age. Her body, I swear, it's scary."
