Brigitte Nielsen admits she is a "jealous and possessive" wife because she worries her toyboy husband will be tempted to leave her for a younger woman. The 47-year-old Danish actress married Mattia Dessi in 2006, but admits the union is plagued by her insecurities about their romance.
She tells Britain's OK! magazine, "I have never been (jealous) but now I am jealous and possessive - my insecurities always make me worry about younger girls blowing him away. Here I am, a mother of four, a divorcee and he's 25 and beautiful - what does he want from this old woman?"
In mid 2008, Nielsen starred in the reality show "Aus alt mach neu" which was broadcast by the German TV-station RTL. The theme of the show was Nielsen's attempt to look "as young as her husband" by undergoing plastic surgery.
