Nastassja Kinski is an actress who has appeared in more than 60 films, in both her native Europe and the United States. Born in Berlin as Nastassja Aglaia Nakszynski, Kinski is the daughter of the German actor Klaus Kinski from his marriage to actress Ruth Brigitte Tocki, thus making her half sister to Pola and Nikolai Kinski. Her parents divorced in 1968. Kinski rarely saw her father after the age of 10, and she and her mother struggled financially. They eventually lived in a commune in Munich.
In 1999, she denied that her father had sexually molested her, but confirmed he molested her "in other ways". In 2013, when she was interviewed about the allegations of sexual abuse made by her half-sister Pola Kinski, she confirmed that he tried with her, but unlike with her sister, he did not actually succeed with her. She stated: "He was no father. 99 percent of the time I was terrified of him. He was so unpredictable that the family lived in constant terror." When asked what she would say to him now, if she had the chance, she replied: "I would do anything to put him behind bars for life. I am glad he is no longer alive."
