Throughout the mid-1970s she dated Belgian writer Hugo Claus.

Kristel found herself typecast as Emmanuelle and often played roles that captialized upon that image, most notably starring in an adaptation of ''Lady Chatterly's Lover'', and a nudity-filled biopic of World War I spy, Mata Hari, in which she played the title role. Her Emmanuelle image followed her to the United States where she played Nicole Mallow, a maid who seduces a teenage boy, in the controversial 1981 sex comedy ''Private Lessons''. One of her only other mainstream American film appearances was a brief comic turn in the ''Get Smart'' revival film, ''The Nude Bomb'' in 1980. She continues to appear in movies, and last played Emmanuelle in the early 1990s.

Kristel currently resides in Amsterdam, Netherlands.
