Today Brigitte Nielsen is known as a singer, actress, model and presenter with net worth valued to be more than 400,000 dollars. Viewers and fans of her also know Nielsen as Gitte, Gitta and The Great Dane, as Brigitte is a Danish actress. She has made many notable appearances in movies during her career in the industry of show business – for example, in “Red Sonja” she performed as the main character, also played Ingrid Knudsen in “Red Cobra”, and was a Dark Witch in the “Fantaghiro” series of movies – “The Cave of the Golden Rose”.

Brigitte Nielsen Net Worth $400 Thousand

Born Gitte Nielsen on July 15 in the year 1963, her home is Rodovre, located in Copenhagen, Denmark. With brother Jan, Gitte was raised in an ordinary family – her mother is a librarian, while her father works as an engineer. The first time Nielsen’s net worth increased because of her amazing talent was in 1983 as she became a model for the famous portrait photographer Greg Gorman. At the beginning of her career Nielsen also worked with Helmut Newton, but still modeling did not become the main source of Gitte’s net worth despite such a great beginning. Gitte decided to try acting, and made her extremely successful debut in 1985, when she starred in the action film ‘Red Sonja’, directed by Richard Fleischer and had the opportunity to communicate with other stars, such as Sandahl Bergman and Arnold Schwarzenegger, who also played one of the main roles in this movie.

After such a fascinating performance Brigitte did not stop increasing her net worth – in the same year she performed in the movie “Rocky IV” with Sylvester Stallone and Tony Burton. Later Brigitte played Ingrid from “Cobra” in 1986, and one year later appeared in “Beverly Hills Cop II” as Karla Fry. One of the most interesting of Gitte’s roles was acting in the Fantaghiro series, also known as “The Cave of the Golden Rose”. There Gitta has played the role of the Dark Witch since the beginning in 1991, and has earned a large amount of money doing so.

But Brigitte Nielsen nowadays is known not only as a model and actress, but also as a musician, and in total since 1988, Nielsen has released 6 studio albums. However, even if Brigitte is known as one of the most amazing actors in Denmark, she did not manage to make such a great success in the music industry. Her debut album, “Every Body Tells a Story”, which was produced by Christian De Walden, was released in 1987. It was something of a success in Italy, but was not very popular in the rest of Europe or the United States. Nielsen tried to increase her net worth as a musician one more time in 1992, but again this album called“One… Nobody Else” did not become popular even in her home country, but still added a sum to Nielsen’s net worth. The last album was released in 2008 and titled “Brigitte Nielsen”.

So now you know how rich is Gitte.

#Quote
1 Men ask me to dance, but when I stand up they start to back off, saying: 'Maybe some other time'. That's when I grab 'em and say: 'There's no time like here and now, fella'. - Referring to her height (6' 1").
2 People think I'm strong as hard as I look. But I've a very sensitive side and need to be loved by everyone.
3 I'm not a beautiful person and I never have been. My ex Sylvester Stallone was obsessed with my looks. He got my profile carved into the place settings of our crystal dining table. And he commissioned a bronze statue of the two of us in our underwear for his garden. It was so embarrassing. But I never understood his fascination.
4 Nothing in life can ever be too big. At least, that's what I've always told all my boyfriends - and I'm not just talking about diamond rings.
5 "I like to have men look at me from the bottom to the top." (referring to her height: 6'1")
6 I'm European and we do that kind of thing (walking naked). It shocked the rest of the world but they got used to do it.
7 When you makes movies, you usually make good money. But it is also a very tough job. Once you enter the public's eye, you have to be aware that you give up a huge part of your own life. And it is never a job from nine to five.
8 I do expose my body, but only because I think people should have something nice to look at.
