Actress Olga Kurylenko's life begins in a small town in Ukraine. Olga Kurylenko was born in Berdyansk, a small town in Ukraine, on November 14, 1979. Her father, Kostyantyn, was Ukrainian, and her mother, Marina Alyabusheva, a Russian art teacher.
Actress Olga Kurylenko's life begins in a poor house. She lived in a small apartment which she shared with her parents, grandparents, uncles and cousin. She often wore leftover clothes from others because the money in the house was barely enough for food. When Kurilenko was three years old, her parents divorced, and she remained in her mother's care.
At the age of 13, Olga received a holiday in Moscow as a gift from her mother. During that trip, she was discovered by a "model seeker". At the age of 17, she signed her first contract with a modelling agency in Paris. By the age of 18, she had already appeared on the covers of Vogue and Elle magazines.
In 2005, Kurilenko began her film career in France.
In 2007, Olga Kurylenko starred in "Hitman" with Timothy Olyphant. She then played the role of the Bond girl, Camile Montes, in the 2008 film James Bond, Quantum of Solace. The fact that she is the first Bond girl from a post-Soviet state received mixed reactions in post-communist countries.
From 1996 until now, the life of the actress Olga Kurylenko took place only in Paris, the place where she chose to pursue her modelling career, and since 2001 she has been a French citizen.
