Ursula Andress Overview:

Actress, Ursula Andress, was born on Mar 19, 1936 in Ostermundigen, Switzerland. As of December 2023, Ursula Andress was 87 years old.


After a late introduction to international stardom by way of the film Dr. No, tigerish blonde Ursula Andress enjoyed 10 years as a top film glamor girl before her career seemed to submerge beneath her private love life. However she stepped up her work schedule again in the late 1970s, apparently ageless and as sexy as ever. She was married to John Derek from 1957 to 1966. Later there was a lengthy liaison with the French star Jean-Paul Belmondo and another with Hollywood star Harry Hamlin that produced a son in 1980.
