Britt is the oldest of four children, born to parents who were clothing store owners in Stockholm. During childhood she was mostly overweight, and described herself as “fat and ugly”. In her teen years, Britt left school and joined a traveling theater company, and on one of these trips she was noticed by a talent agent in Italy, who then sent her to London to audition for films.

Her career on screen started firstly in side-parts and uncredited roles in films such as “G.I. Blues” (1960). The same year she appeared in “The Happy Thieves” in a support role, and continued in films of Swedish production, such as “Kort ar sommaren”(1962) and “Det ar hos mig han har varit”(1963). Finally, her breakthrough role came in the 1964 western “Advance to the Rear”, then in her following project – “A Carol for Another Christmas” – Ekland met her future husband, Peter Sellers with whom she went on to appear in several other movies, such as “After the Fox” (1966) and “The Bobo” (1967); her net worth was rising steadily.

By 1968 she had become a noted actress, and landed a lead role in Friedkin’s musical “The Night They Raided Minsky’s”, which brought her many acknowledgements and critical acclaim. Britt then starred in a series of Italian films, including “Machine Gun McCain” (1969), “The Conspirators” (1969) and “The Cannibals” (1970), before in 1971 being cast as the leading lady next to Michael Caine in “Get Carter”, and this role brought her the recognition of a sex symbol and a blonde bombshell. Following this success, she was also seen in several horror films during the ‘70s, such as “Asylum” (1972) and “The Wicker Man” (1973). During the following years she appeared in a variety of films, including in the role of the lead James Bond girl in “The Man with the Golden Gun” (1974) for which she was praised, and which further established her sex symbol status. In numerous other roles over the years, Ekland has also starred in popular series such as “Superboy”, but also wrote “Sensual Beauty: How to Achieve It” a beauty and fitness book in 1984. After 1990, and her film role in “The Children”, Britt’s career has focused mostly on roles on television and the stage, in such as “Cinderella”, Grumpy Old Women Live”, and the 2010 season of the reality TV show “I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!”, still adding to her net worth.

When it comes to her private life, Ekland owes a lot of her success and popularity to her romance and marriage to comedian Peter Sellers who she married in 1964; the couple was married for four years and had a daughter. In 1973, Britt had her second child, with record producer Lou Adler. One of her most notable romances was with musician Rod Stewart whom she dated during the ‘70s. She was engaged to singer Phil Lewis from 1979–1981 but the two eventually split up. From 1984–1992 she was married to drummer Slim Jim Phantom, 19 years her junior, and the two had a son.

1[on how lover Warren Beatty handled her like an elevator] He knew exactly where to locate the top button. One flick and we were away.
2I just like someone who satisfies me sexually and is fun, but puts no demands on me and who disappears out of my life when I like them to disappear out of my life.
3[on Warren Beatty] Warren is the most divine lover of all. His libido was as lethal as high-octane gas. I had never known such pleasure of passion in my life.
4[on Peter Sellers] I would squirm with embarrassment at the demeaning lengths he would go to in order to ingratiate himself with the Royal Family.
5I said I don't sleep with married men, but what I meant was I don't sleep with happily married men.
