Christine Kaufmann (born January 11, 1945) is a German-Austrian actress.

Born in Lengdorf, Styria, Austria, to a German father and a French mother, Christine Maria Kaufmann very soon entered the artistic field. In fact, she was a ballerina at the Munich Opera. She started her movie career at the age of seven, in the 1952 adaptation of Im weißen Rößl (White Horse Inn). The movie which brought her fame in Germany though is Rosen-Resli, released in 1954, when she was only nine.

In 1963 she married Tony Curtis, whom she had met during the filming of Taras Bulba (1962). They had two daughters, Alexandra (born 1964) and Allegra (born 1966), and divorced in 1968. Kaufmann continued her career again, which she had interrupted while being married. She gained international recognition when she played alongside Kirk Douglas in Town Without Pity.

Kaufmann is also a successful businesswoman promoting her own cosmetic products line that sells well in Germany. She has authored several books about beauty and health. She also wrote two autobiographies. She speaks three languages: German, English, and French.
