Statuesque Danish actress Brigitte Nielsen was once married to Sylvester Stallone. As for her career achievements…uh….Statuesque Danish actress Brigitte Nielsen was once married to Sylvester Stallone. Well, let’s be fair: she wasn’t bad as the comic-book sword ‘n’ sorcery heroine Red Sonja in the 1985 film of the same name. And she certainly filled the costumes (what there were of them) in Domino (89) and Chained Heat 2 (93). To fully assess the thespic skills of Brigitte Nielsen, one must witness her starkly realistic performance as a curvaceous NASA detective in the lunar looney tune Murder by Moonlight (93).
