To the chagrin of his children, Klaus Kinski is still “idolized” as a genius among the actors.
All psychopaths are narcissists at the same time.
Kinski was an exhibitionist narcissist.
Kinski’s eldest daughter Pola revealed in her 2013 book of revelations that the “myth of Kinski” had serially abused her from the age of 5 to 19.In it, she confirmed what Kinski had already hinted at in his 1975 autobiography. First and foremost, Pola Kinski has written against posthumous idolization and the persistent myth of Kinski.
Her book was given a meeting and interviews.That’s it.
The Kinski myth continued ever since.
- Since he [her father Klaus Kinski is dead), this idolization has been getting worse and worse.
My father was as an actor as it was at home. He has never respectedotherpeople.That’s why he actually abused all people.
