Negri began her career as a ballerina in Poland before transitioning to film in Germany, where she quickly gained fame and became one of the most popular actresses of the silent film era. She famously collaborated with director Ernst Lubitsch on several films, including "Passion" and "The Marriage Circle".

After the advent of sound in cinema, Negri continued to work in Hollywood, but her heavy accent limited her roles. She eventually returned to Europe and continued to act in films and on stage throughout the 1930s and 1940s.
