Connie is one of four children of Laila Matzigkeit, an insurance cleric and musical reviews writer, and Bent Nielsen, who was a bus driver. At the age of 18, she relocated to Paris, France, where she began modeling and later acting. She made her on-camera debut at the age of 19 in 1984, when she appeared in the French comedy movie “How Did You Get In? We Didn’t See You Leave”. Connie then transferred to Rome, Italy, where she enrolled at drama school, before attending Milan’s Piccolo Teatro di Milano. Upon graduation, she landed a recurring role in the Italian TV mini comedy series “Colletti Bianchi” in 1988. These involvements eased Connie Nielsen’s dive into the world of acting, also providing the basis for her current net worth.

Before moving to the States, Connie appeared in the 1991 Italian movie “Vacanze di Natale ’91” which was followed with an appearance in the 1994 French TV movie “Le Paradis Absolument”. Her first major English-speaking role occurred in 1997, when she was cast for the role of Christabella Andreoli in the horror movie “The Devil’s Advocate”, with Keanu Reeves and Al Pacino in the leading roles. However, the real breakthrough in Nielsen’s career occurred in 2000 when, after appearing in Brian De Palma’s Sci-Fi thriller “Mission to Mars”, Connie was cast for the role of Princess Lucilla in Ridley Scott’s historical spectacle “Gladiator”. The movie won five Academy Awards, while she was honored with the Empire Award for the Best Actress. It is certain that all these accomplishments made a huge impact on Connie Nielsen’s net worth.

For appearing as Sarah in the 2004 war movie “Brothers”, Connie was honored with the San Sebasti√°n International Film Festival and the Indianapolis International Film Festival Awards. In 2006, she was cast for the recurring role of Detective Dani Beck in “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” TV series which was followed by appearing in movies such as “Battle In Seattle” (2007), “A Shine of Rainbows” (2009) and “Lost in Africa” (2010). All these ventures increased the size of Connie Nielsen’s wealth as well as her popularity.

In 2011, she appeared opposite Ewan McGregor and Eva Green in “Perfect Sense”, while between 2011 and 2012 Connie starred as Meredith Kane in the “Boss” TV series. In 2013, she appeared in Lars von Trier’s rather controversial movie “Nymphomaniac: Vol. I”, and in 2014 she starred alongside Kevin Costner in the action thriller movie “3 Days to Kill”. She made memorable small-screen appearances in TV series “The Following” and “The Good Wife”, and some of her more recent acting engagements include the movies “Ali and Nino” and “The Confessions” both in 2016, as well as portraying the role of Queen Hippolyta in Marvel’s blockbuster movies “Wonder Woman” and “Justice League” in 2017. Doubtlessly, all these achievements have helped Connie Nielsen to enlarge the total of her revenues by a large margin.

When it comes to her personal life, between 2004 and 2012 Connie Nielsen was marred to a musician, Metallica’s drummer Lars Ulrich with whom she welcomed one son. From her previous relationships, she has another son, Sebastian Sartor, who is now a music producer.
