She has been romantically linked to Sebastian Koch and Kees van Nieuwkerk. Carice is presently in a relationship with actor Guy Pearce. They have one child together, Monte Pearce.
Carice started her acting career by playing the lead role in the television movie “Suzy Q.” She would win awards for her role title role. Carice later won awards for her role in the 2001 film “Undercover Kitty.” Although she could be seen in the United States in the film “AmnesiA,” she wouldn’t become internationally recognized until the 2006 Paul Verhoeven picture “Black Book.” Her success helped her nab several other parts, but she had to take a brief hiatus because of work overload.
She had a role opposite to Leonardo DiCaprio in the movie “Body of Lies,” but her scenes were cut from the final feature. Since then, Carice has appeared in “Game of Thrones,” “The Simpsons,” “Valkyrie,” “Repo Men” and “Race,” a film about legendary director Leni Riefenstahl.
Outside of acting, she is also a successful musician. She has released two albums: “See You on the Ice” (2012) and “Fear Not” (2015).
A few other tidbits about Carice: her favorite film of all-time is “Singin’ in the Rain,” her favorite comedy duo of all-time is Laurel and Hardy and she is a WWF Ambassador.
We estimate that Carice van Houten’s net worth is $5 million (2015).
So how much is $5 million really?
$5 million could help pay for an entire blockbuster production in the Netherlands. $5 million could also help you redesign the set of the iconic Gene Kelley dancing scene in Carice’s favorite movie of all-time.
