Olga Konstiantinivna Kurylenko is a French model turned actress, born in Ukraine on November 14, 1979. In 1982, Kurylenko’s parents divorced. Kurylenko’s mother raised her by teaching art and exhibiting her work. Since the divorce, Kurylenko only saw her father twice, when she was eight and thirteen.
Kurylenko moved to Moscow when she was 15 years old. She was 16 years old when she signed a modeling contract. For two years, Kurylenko trained as a model. When Kurylenko turned 18, she appeared on Vogue covers and Elle Magazines. Even though Kurylenko was away from her mother, she sent financial support and communicated with her mother throughout the years.
Aside from Vogue and Elle, Kurylenko also appeared in Madame Figaro and Marie Claire magazines as a cover girl. She became the brand ambassadress of Clarins, Bebe, and Helena Rubinstein. Kurylenko also modeled for Cavalli, Kenzo, and Victoria’s Secret catalog.
Her first acting role is a music video of a French singer in 1998. However, it was in 2005 that directors and producers noticed her talent in acting. Kurylenko starred in a French film L’Annulaire. In this film, she got a certificate of excellence at the Brooklyn International Film Festival (2006). Kurylenko also co-starred with Elijah Wood in the Paris segment of Je T’aime, Quartier de la Madeleine.
Kurylenko starred in Hitman with Timothy Olyphant in 2007. She landed a minor role as Natasha in Max Payne. In 2008, Kurylenko got lucky and landed the part of the Bond girl in Quantum of Solace. She beat Gal Gadot in the audition (which later on lost to Gadot in Wonder Woman audition).
Here’s a fun fact. In 2008, the mayor of Berdyansk suggested that Kurylenko’s name become one of the streets in the town. But, we’re not sure if naming a street after Kurylenko’s name pushed through. During this time, the sexy model met the first lady in her country house. Such a privilege.
Anyways, Kurylenko continued her acting career. She appeared in the film To the Wonder, directed by Terrence Malick and in Oblivion, where Kurylenko co-starred with Tom Cruise. The model-actress also appeared in November Man as Alice Fournier. Kurylenko also starred in The Water Diviner (with Russell Crowe), and Vampire Academy as a headmistress.
Outside the limelight, Kurylenko became a French citizen in 2001. Her first husband was Cedric Van Mol, whom Kurylenko married a year before her naturalization. However, their marriage ended in divorce four years later.
A few years later, Kurylenko married Damian Gabrielle in 2006. A year later, the two divorced. In 2012, the actress married Danny Houston but then divorced him a year after. After her third failure in marriage, she limits herself to dating.
Rumors have it that Kurylenko dated Tom Cruise. However, no one confirmed it. She dated Max Benitz, and the two have a son. Still, the couple parted ways. Right now, Kurylenko isn’t dating anyone after separating with partner Ben Cura.
Being a model turned actress, Kurylenko has to maintain a hot bikini body. Well, her efforts show in these beautiful photos. Kurylenko confidently flaunts her curves, ass, and boobs.
