Ursula Andress Net Worth $25 Million

Ursula Andress was raised with five siblings by her mother, Anna, who worked as a gardener, and her father, Rolf Andress, who was a German diplomat. When she was only 17 years old, Ursula eloped to Rome with an Italian actor, where she started working as an art model and did walk-ons in three quickie Italian features. After a year, she moved to California in order to pursue further her career in the film industry.

Ursula’s acting career began in 1954, when she made her debut appearance as Astrid Sjöström in the film “An American In Rome”, after which she featured in “Sins Of Casanova”, and “La Catena Dell’odio”, both in 1955. In 1962, she gained enormous popularity, as she appeared in the first Bond film “Dr. No”, in the role of Honey Ryder, James Bond’s woman of desire, opposite Sean Connery. There is one scene in this movie where she comes out of the sea in a white bikini carrying a knife on her hip which became an iconic moment in both cinematic and fashion history. From then, her career only went upwards, as well as her net worth.

In the following years, Ursula made appearances in many other memorable film titles such as “Fun In Acapulco” (1963) playing Marguerita Dauphin alongside Elvis Presley, “4 for Texas” (1963) as Maxine Richter, opposite Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin, and “She” (1965), portraying Ayesha, which was directed by Robert Day. By the next decade, she also starred in “The Blue Max” (1966), the Bond satire “Casino Royale” (1967), and “Anyone Can Play” (1969). All of these roles added a considerable amount to her net worth. Furthermore, during the 1960s, she posed nude for Playboy magazine, after which she earned the nickname ‘Ursula Undress’, and appeared nude or semi-nude in coming titles.

In 1970s, Ursula continued to line up success after success, starring in the role of Michelle Nolton in “Stateline Motel” (1973), playing Joséphine De Beauharnais in “The Loves and Times of Scaramouche” (1976), as Princess Dell’Orso in “Double Murder” (1977), and portraying Louise de la Vallière in “The Fifth Musketeer” (1979), increasing further her net worth.

In 1980s, her first role was Aphrodite in the 1981 film “Clash Of The Titans”, after which Ursula was cast in several TV titles, including “The Love Boat” (1983), and “Falcon Crest” (1985). Most recently, she featured in the 2005 film “The Bird Preachers”, in the role of Madonna, directed by Clemens Klopfenstein. Her net worth was certainly rising.

Thanks to her accomplishments, Ursula was nominated for and won numerous awards, for example she was nominated for the Henrietta Award for World Film Favorite – Female and won a Golden Globe for Most Promising Newcomer – Female. Also, her entrance in “Dr. No” was voted No. 1 in the 100 Greatest Sexy Moments in film.

Regarding her personal life, Ursula Andress was married to actor/director John Derek from 1957 to 1966, after which she dated her colleague Harry Hamlin with whom she has a son. Other partners have included Jean-Paul Belmondo (1965-1972), Fabio Testi (1973-1976), and Fausto Fagone (1986–1991).

#Quote
1 The world has become so small today. It is so sad that everything is becoming the same, and different traditions and cultures are all disappearing. I want to see different cultures, and different traditions, and my favorite places are villages which do not have high-rise houses or cement-block flats, but villages that are confined in a wall with their traditions intact. (Nov. '08)
2 I did enjoy London in the '60s. Everything was fun, it was a happy town, an English town, but now there are no English there!
3 [her criteria for choosing a project] It has to be art or else I am not interested. There is no shortage of good actors, there is a shortage of good films because they are very costly, but I did my work, and now I only do things for art.
4 I have always been a gypsy, dreaming about curiosity and dreaming about traveling.
5 [self-description of her upbringing] Like medieval times. I wasn't allowed to talk at the table unless I was addressed. I was not allowed to see boys or go to dances until I was 17.
6 [on Harry Hamlin] I wanted him, and I knew I could have him, but I had no idea it would last more than a night or two. You can never prejudge a man.
7 Honestly, I feel so lucky I have had such a lucky life. Everything I've ever wanted, I've had. And now I have my own baby.
8 I was unfaithful to my husband because of my love for Jean-Paul. It is the only time I have been unfaithful to the man I loved, and I wouldn't do it again.
9 [People magazine, 12/29/80] I'm nearly having a nervous breakdown. I am Swiss, and I want everything precise, clean, perfect. Everybody is furious with me; I have no time for anybody. I cry every day, I'm so upset. A baby takes 24 hours out of every 24 hours -- I never imagined it would be so time-consuming. Never, never!
10 What I look for in a man isn't printable! I wouldn't want to shatter my cool Swiss image.
11 When I love a man, I live only for him. I become his slave.
12 To me, it's much more moral to live with the man you love, without signing a piece of paper, than to live legally in an atmosphere of boredom which can eventually turn to hate.
13 It's a mystery. All I did was wear this bikini in Dr. No (1962) - not even a small one - and whoosh! Overnight, I made it.
14 I was under contract to Paramount. They wanted to make me into somebody which I was not. So I got so scared and rebelled, so they threw me out of the studio, because I never went to school. I never went to the diction of the English, to acting school, because I was so scared because I saw them ... and I couldn't live up to it. So I chose to run away.
15 I have no problem with nudity. I can look at myself. I like walking around nude. It doesn't bother me. I see all the people walking around nude; it doesn't bother me.
