In addition to her work in cinema, she worked as a singer, wrote several novels. Karina is considered an icon of 1960s cinema, referred to as the "effervescent free spirit of the French New Wave, with all of the scars that the position entails"; the New York Times described her as "one of the screen's great beauties and an enduring symbol of the French New Wave."
Hanne Karin Bayer was born in Denmark. Her mother was a dress shop owner and her father left the family a year after she was born. Karina recalled she met her father three times:"The first time, I was 4 years old, he gave me a banana, I crunched and spat, because I didn't know that I had to remove the skin; the second time, I was still a minor, the meeting was at a train station in London, I was with Jean-Luc, when he saw me, my father said to me:'You miss a button'. I yelled in Danish, and the third time was in 1963 in Barcelona, I was shooting The Thief of Tibidabo by Maurice Ronet. We have lunch together for twenty minutes, he was with one of his sons, Soren", "8 years old, he was friendly, we talk about everything and Africa. I got to know him and I'm happy, he promises to write to me. And since I wait, I wait, I wait. I'm still waiting for the postcard." She lived with her maternal grandparents for three years spent the next four years in foster care before returning to live with her mother.
She has described her childhood as "terribly wanting to be loved", as a child she made numerous attempts to run away from home. Her mother remarried, she began her career in Denmark, where she sang in cabarets and worked as a model playing in commercials. At age 14, she appeared in a Danish short film by Ib Schmedes. In 1958, after a row with her mother, she hitchhiked to Paris. Karina was 17 when she unable to speak French. One day while sitting at the café Les Deux Magots she was approached by a woman from an advertisement agency who asked her to do some photos, she began to work as a model and became successful, posing for several magazines, including Elle, meeting Pierre Cardin and Coco Chanel. Karina said that Chanel helped her devise her professional name, Anna Karina, deliberately coined to evoke the Leo Tolstoy novel, Anna Karenina, she appeared on the front cover of the Elle fashion magazine and in commercials for products such as Coca-Cola and Palmolive soap. Jean-Luc Godard a film critic for Cahiers du cinéma, first saw Karina in the Palmolive adverts in which she posed in bathtubs, during movie previews in a Monsavon pub.
He was casting his debut feature film and offered her a small part in it, but she refused when he mentioned that there would be a nude scene. When Godard questioned her refusal, mentioning her apparent nudity in the Palmolive ads, she is said to have replied, "Are you mad? I was wearing a bathing suit in those ads—the soapsuds went up to my neck, it was in your mind that I was undressed." In the end, the character Godard reserved for Karina did not appear in the film. Godard offered her a role in The Little Soldier which concerns contentious French actions during the Algerian War, she played a pro-Algerian activist. Karina still under 21, had to persuade her estranged mother to sign the contract for her; the film was controversial, outlawed from French theaters for its content referencing the Algerian War. Karina and Godard received death threats, "had to live in secret places"; as Angela in A Woman Is a Woman. Karina's role was as an unattached striptease dancer who wishes to have a child and daydreams about appearing in MGM musicals.
Her school-girl costume emulated Leslie Caron in Gigi, worn while performing her act. Karina won the Silver Bear for Best Actress at the 11th Berlin International Film Festival for her performance. In all, Karina appeared in eight films directed by Godard, including My Life to Live, Band of Outsiders Pierrot le Fou and Alphaville. In Pierrot le Fou, Karina's character is on the run with her ex-boyfriend while in Alphaville, a science-fiction film equated to Bladerunner, her role requires Karina to have difficulty saying the phrase "I love you." The last film in the sequence was Made in USA. Anne Billson, in an article querying the concept of the female muse, wrote that Godard in his films with Karina "seems to have trouble conceiving that the female experience revolves around anything other than prostitution, duplicity, or wanting babies." Karina herself did not object to being described as Godard's muse: "Maybe it’s too much, it sounds so pompous. But of course I’m always touched to hear people say that.
Because Jean-Luc gave me a gift to play all of those parts."Her career flourished
