Biography

 

Ursula Andress (born 19 March 1936) is a Swiss actress, former model and sex symbol, who has appeared in American, British and Italian films.

Hollywood

Andress, c. 1971.

Andress arrived in Hollywood in January 1955.In March she was signed to a seven-year contract with Paramount Pictures starting at $287 a week. The contract resulted in no acting roles due to her inability to learn English at the time. “I spent most of my time watching old Marlene Dietrich movies,” she said.

Andress did receive some publicity for dating James Dean shortly before the actor’s death. She bought herself out of her contract. In March 1956 it was announced she signed to Columbia Pictures. She made no films for them either but was Miss World Trade of 1956. She stayed in Hollywood because she married John Derek in 1957. In 1959 it was announced she and Derek would star in a film, High Variety, but no movie resulted..

Andress has stated that she lost her virginity to married actor Daniel Gelin in 1953, when she was 17 and he was 32. She dated Dennis Hopper and James Dean after moving to the US in 1955, and that same year began an affair with actor/director John Derek, a married father-of-two who walked out on his wife, Pati Behrs, and their family to be with 19-year-old Andress. Derek and Andress wed in 1957 in Las Vegas, but separated in 1964 over her affair with Once Before I Die co-star Ron Ely, officially divorcing in 1966. During interim, the separated but still married Andress publicly dated John Richardson, her co-star from She, and Marcello Mastroianni, her co-star from The 10th Victim.

From 1965 to 1972, Andress lived with Up to His Ears co-star Jean-Paul Belmondo. He was, she says, the love of her life. Her next live-in relationship was with another co-star, Stateline Motel’s Fabio Testi, from 1973 to 1977 (except for one year when they broke up). She also dated Ryan O’Neal, John Delorean, Helmut Berger, Paolo Pazzaglia, Johnny Dorelli, Franco Nero, with whom she later starred in Red Bells, Nels Van Patten and Ricci Martin.

When Andress broke her arm in late summer 1978, the official story was that she’d been struck by Hurricane Norman while bodysurfing in Malibu, but rumors flew that she actually suffered the injury during a fight with her on/off boyfriend O’Neal. O’Neal and Andress were in a relationship twice, first from 1972–73 then again from 1977–78.

Andress was in a relationship with American actor Harry Hamlin after meeting on the set of Clash of the Titans in 1979. She gave birth to their son, Dimitri Alexander Hamlin, on May 19, 1980. Andress was 44 years old upon the birth of her only child. She moved into close friend Linda Evans’ Coldwater Canyon home until hers was ready. Although an engagement was announced, the couple never married.  In 1983, Hamlin broke up with her.

In the mid-1980s, Andress was romantically involved with Brazilian soccer player Paulo Roberto Falcão, actor Gerardo Amato, singer Julio Iglesias, real estate developer Stan Herman and Greek bodybuilder Mario Natokis. In 1986 she began dating future Sicilian regional assembly member Fausto Fagone, then an economics student in university; he was 20 and she was 50.  The relationship, which infuriated Fagone’s parents, lasted until 1991.  Later that year Andress briefly dated martial arts expert Jeff Speakman, but has not been publicly linked with anyone since then.

In 2017, Andress sold her home in Beverly Hills at a considerable profit. As of 2020, Andress splits her time between an apartment in Rome and a house in Switzerland, near to her siblings.
