Katharina Gerhardt is actually an actress herself – with small roles, for example in “Tatort” or at GZSZ. She is also known as the ex of comedian and “Hausmeister Krause” actor Tom Gerhardt. Not only he should pull eyes when he opens the “Playboy”.
For eleven years, Tom Gerhardt imitated the title character in the comedy series “Hausmeister Krause – order must be”. He is also married in the fictional format – to Elisabeth, played by Irene Schwarz. But in real life his heart beats for someone else at that moment: his then wife Katharina, who took his last name but Katharina Beissel was born as the daughter of conductor Heribert Beissel.
The two were married from 2003 to 2008 – in the midst of the great success of “Hausmeister Krause”. But then the marriage falls apart. Katharina Gerhardt has only kept her last name and the dubious honor of being “the ex of”. In fact, she is also an actress herself. For example, she had minor roles in “Tatort”, in the silent film “7 Dwarfs – Men alone in the forest” or in “Gute Zeiten, Schlechte Zeiten” (GZSZ).
The 43-year-old is sure to make it in “Playboy”. For the October issue of the magazine, she dropped all the covers. And of course she combines that with a clear statement: “My message is: you are never too old to feel sexy. Never stop dreaming and don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t do something.”
“I was young and immature”
She makes no secret of the fact that she still has a few dreams professionally. “I would like to play a role in which I go to the extreme. Like Leonardo DiCaprio in ‘The Revenant’. Where at the end you can say: I survived the shooting,” reveals the Bonn resident in “Playboy”. to talk. She could also imagine herself in the role of “Tatort” commissioner – “but a nice one who likes to eat, drink, laugh and have sex. That would be something new.”
When it comes to her failed marriage to Tom Gerhardt, who is 21 years her senior, she doesn’t mince words either. “I was young and immature, he was old and immature. Together it was a huge catastrophe,” she admits. But not only her divorce was “probably the funniest and shortest that ever existed”. The couple are still on friendly terms today.
That her ex can now see her in “Playboy” does not bother Katharina Gerhardt, she assures in another interview with the newspaper “Bild”. “It’s nothing he hasn’t seen yet,” she explains.
“Always on the Run”
The actress doesn’t seem to have any problems with her self-confidence anyway. “I’m really lucky with my boobs,” she says in the “Bild” interview. Nevertheless, it is “an honor for a woman” to have landed on the “Playboy” cover like her.
The only thing missing is the right partner by your side, right? “Actually, I never look, I’m always on the run,” explains Katharina Gerhardt. However, she is currently “very happy” and hopes to “stay that way”. She won’t reveal if this has anything to do with a man. She blurts out that a young person wouldn’t stand a chance with her. “I would be afraid that I would spontaneously get milk,” she only gives the older people hope.
