Does Kim have Asperger's syndrome?
Daryl Hannah has suggested that her Asperger’s as played a hand in wrecking her career. In a nutshell, she said: “I never went on talk shows, never went to premieres. Going to the Academy Awards was so painful for me. I’d almost faint just walking down the red carpet. I was so socially awkward and uncomfortable that I eventually got blacklisted.”
“Studio executives would call me but I’d be too shy to call them back. So after a while a couple of studios literally told my manager that I was blacklisted.”
Asperger’s syndrome wasn’t as known now as it was say, during the supposed peaks of Kim Basinger (who like Hannah, always seems very private, shy, and uncomfortable in front of the paparazzi) and Daryl Hannah’s careers. Therefore, it would’ve been easy to look at these as cases them coming across as extremely stand-offish, eccentric, and frustratingly aloof.
Kim's parents when she was really young, thought that she may have been autistic since she was always so withdrawn and quiet.
