Rie Rasmussen (born 14 February 1978 in Copenhagen, Denmark) is a Danish actress, film director, writer, and photographer.

She was discovered at the age of fifteen while vacationing in New York.



After attending film school as a writer-director, Rasmussen got her big break in the film industry when she acted in Brian De Palma's erotic thriller Femme Fatale which starred, former supermodel Rebecca Romijn. Given the role because some of her life's escapades she'd written as short stories, impressed the director. She wrote and directed two short films, one of which, Thinning the Herd, was officially selected to more than 20 film festivals around the world including the Cannes Film Festival where it was nominated for a Palme d'Or. Its inclusion in Quentin Tarantino's QT fest in Austin was the feather in her cap. She also appears in Luc Besson's Angel-A in the title roll.

Her first feature film entitled 'Human Zoo' she wrote, directed and produced. 'Human Zoo' was officially selected at 2009's Berlin Film Festival and opened the Panorama section. It is a drama loosely based on the story of her adopted Vietnamese sister struggling to get her citizenship, set against the backdrop of the conflict in Kosovo. The film highlights the problems with immigration and learned aggression, told in a non linear storytelling structure with extreme violence throughout the human tale.


A talented artist in any medium, Rie's recent oil on canvas pieces are erotic celebrations of the human form. Rie Rasmussen's book of art and photography 'Grafiske Historier' (Graphic Tales) was published under the pseudonym Lilly Dillon (a character from the novel "The Grifters' by Jim Thomson, one of her favorite American writers). As a photographer her images have been published in top magazines such as Italian Vogue, French Vogue, and Vs.


She was launched onto the modeling scene by Brian De Palma's film 'Femme Fatale'. She was immediately chosen as the face of Gucci under Tom Ford. On the catwalk, she likes to portray a character, saying it is very much like acting. She worked with all the bigger fashion houses and she enjoyed the few artists that remained in the industry. While in the industry she worked with the most exclusive houses, and she continued to write many scripts, short stories and directed smaller surf-skate videos. Her art really had time to flourish since there was no lack of muses around, most of her sketches and photos published in her recent book 'Grafiske Historier' are from her time travelling the world with her friends, and other magazine, or commercial art creators. After Avedon's death she proceeded to do her first Short film. She modeled for Victorias Secret. Her vital statistics are 34-24-34, she is 5'10" (1.78m), she has brown hair and blue eyes. She is managed by 1 Management in New York.

She snorts when people describe her as a Victoria’s Secret model. “The only time I worked for Victoria’s Secret was because I, like everybody else, wanted to fuck a supermodel. And I did! And that was enough, for that one specific reason.”[1] She is currently on the cover of Italian Vogue's haute couture edition shot by star lensmen and director Steven Klein.
