Biography for Olga Kurylenko

Olga Kostyantynivna Kurylenko (Ukrainian: Ольга Костянтинівна Куриленко; born Nov. 14, 1979 (38 years ago)) is a Ukrainian model and actress. She is perhaps best known as the Bond girl in the 22nd James Bond film, Quantum of Solace (4 walls) and for portraying the character of Nika Boronina in the movie adaptation of the video game Hitman. She became a French citizen in 2001 (16 years ago).

Early years

Olga Kurylenko was born in Berdyansk, Ukraine. Her father, Kostyantyn Kurylenko, is Ukrainian. Her mother, Marina Alyabusheva, an art teacher of Russian and Belarusian descent, was born in Irkutsk Oblast, Russia.

Her childhood was a poor one; she shared an apartment with her aunt and uncle, grandparents and cousin. She never had any fancy clothes, often wearing hand-me-downs and re-sewing torn sweaters instead of buying new ones. Her discovery led to a drastic change in lifestyle, "I couldn't have anything, basically. I couldn't have any clothes I wanted, shoes, beds, clothes for school - because my mum couldn't buy them [Olga, on her childhood]".

When Kurylenko was three years old her parents divorced, leaving her to be raised by her mother. Kurylenko rarely had contact with her father, meeting him for the first time when she was 8 years old, and later again when she was 13.

Career

Kurylenko was discovered by a female model scout while on vacation in Moscow at the age of thirteen. When she was 17 she signed a contract with the Paris-based Madison modeling agency. By the age of 18 she had already appeared on the covers of Vogue and Elle. While working as a model in Paris, Kurylenko supported her mother back home in Ukraine.

She also dazzled the covers of Madame Figaro and Marie Claire.

Also, she became the face of Lejaby lingerie, Bebe clothing, Clarins and Helena Rubinstein. Furthermore, she modelled for Roberto Cavalli and KENZO, and briefly appeared in the Victoria's Secret (26 walls) catalog.

In 2005 (12 years ago), Kurylenko began her movie career in France. She received the certificate of excellence award at the 2006 (11 years ago) Brooklyn International movie Festival for her performance in L'Annulaire, and also starred in the Paris, je t'aime segment Quartier de la Madeleine opposite Elijah Wood. This same year, she was selected to be the face of Kenzo's new fragrance, Kenzo Amour. She has appeared in all subsequent Kenzo Amour ads. In 2007 (10 years ago), Kurylenko starred in Hitman alongside Timothy Olyphant in which she did a full nude scene. She played Bond girl Camille Montes in the 2008 (9 years ago) James Bond film, Quantum of Solace. The movie was released in the United States on her twenty-ninth birthday.

Kurylenko was featured on the cover of the dec. 2008 (9 years ago) issue of the US edition of Maxim magazine (55 walls) and on the cover of the Feb. 2009 (8 years ago) issue of the Ukrainian edition of Maxim magazine (55 walls).

The fact that she is the first Bond girl from a post-Soviet state received mixed reactions in post-Soviet countries. The Saint-Petersburg based Communist group KPLO has accused her of "moral and intellectual betrayal" in starring in a movie about the "enemy of the Soviet people" (meaning James Bond), but the mayor of Berdyansk has suggested naming a street after her and Kurylenko and her mother met Ukraine's First Lady Kateryna Yushchenko in President Yushchenko's family country house.

Personal life

In 2000 (17 years ago), Kurylenko married French fashion photographer Cedric Van Mol, but the couple divorced four years later. In 2006 (11 years ago), she married American mobile phone accessory entrepreneur Damian Gabrielle. They divorced in late 2007 (10 years ago). Kurylenko has lived in Paris since leaving Ukraine in 1996 (21 years ago) to pursue her modeling career. In 2001 (16 years ago) she was granted French citizenship.
