Born in Italy, the actress moved to New York City at the age of 6, attending high school in lower Manhattan and working a handful of odd jobs.
Fox launched clothing brand Franziska Fox with her friend Briana Andalore and was a model before her acting career took off. In 2015, she posed nude in Playboy, and later went on to self-publish two photography books.
Four years later, Fox made her movie debut in 2019’s Uncut Gems, which also starred Adam Sandler, Lakeith Stanfield and Idina Menzel. The role earned her a nomination for Breakthrough Actor at the 29th annual Gotham Awards.
Fox married pilot Peter Artemiev in 2018. Two years later, she told GQ the pair were “not together.” She announced in February 2021 that she had welcomed a baby boy named Valentino. At the time, it was unclear whether Artemiev was the father, but she called him a “dead beat dad” in a series of Instagram Stories in December 2021.
The No Sudden Move star was later linked to Kanye West after they were spotted together in Miami and New York in January 2022. She recapped their “fun” NYC outing in an Interview magazine profile that month, which also featured photos of the duo packing on PDA in West’s hotel room.
