Nastassja is the daughter of the late Klaus Kinski
(1926-1991), a German actor whose real name was Nikolaus Nakszynski, and of Ruth Toecki
. Nastassja's older half-sister Pola Kinski
is also an actress, but works mainly in German. Their younger brother Nikolai Kinski
(born 1976) is also an actor and works in English as well as German, and their cousin Lara Naszinsky
(whose father was the brother of Klaus) is an actress (born 1967 in France) who works in Italian and German.
Nastassja grew up speaking several languages, and as well as being fluent in English, German, French, Italian and Russian, she has worked in all those languages, but mostly in English. Nearly all of her credits to date are in movies, so few of them show up here at TV Rage.
Nastassja was married to the producer Ibrahim Moussa
from 1984 to 1992, when they divorced, and with him she has a son, Aljosha (born 1984), and a daughter, Sonja (1986). For most of the 1990s she was the partner of the composer Quincy Jones
and has a daughter called Kenia (born 1993) with him.
