Kim Basinger finds 'selfies' ''scary''.

The 60-year-old actress - who has 18-year-old daughter Ireland with ex-husband Alec Baldwin - fears for the future of young people because they appear self-absorbed and don't have much drive to work hard to find success.

She said: ''If you look at this generation of selfies and selfies and selfies, it seems a little bit scary. I like to see a driven kid, somebody who wants to come from the ground up . . . you just don't know what's going to happen to this generation.''

The 'L.A. Confidential' actress also insisted she is nothing like her sexy image.

Speaking to the new issue of Interview magazine, she said: ''I'm more bare-footed Rastafarian, crazy.''

Last year, Ireland landed a deal with IMG Models and Kim insisted her daughter had worked hard to pursue a modelling career without her help because she only wanted to protect her by giving her a normal upbringing as far out of the public eye as possible.

She previously said ''She grew up in the limelight but I tried to provide stability and a quieter world.

''You just want them to follow their own path, and she totally did this on her own.

''I think she wanted to stick her foot in and see what it would bring. And she's doing extremely well.''
