Brigitte Bardot * Mini Biography

Bridget Bardot Brigitte Bardot was born on September 28, 1934, in Paris, France. Her father had an engineering degree and worked with his father in the family business. Her mother was 14 years younger than Brigitte's father and they married in 1933. Brigitte's mother encouraged her daughter to take up music and dance, and she proved to be very adept at it.

By the time she was 15 Brigitte was trying a modeling career, and found herself in the French magazine "Elle." Her incredible beauty readily apparent, Brigitte next tried films. In 1952 she appeared on screen for the first time as Javotte Lemoine in Le trou normand (1952). Two more films followed and it was also the same year she married Roger Vadim. The two had known each other years earlier and she wanted to marry him when she was 17, but her parents quashed any marriage plans until she turned 18. The union lasted only five years. Capitalizing on her success in French films, she made her first US production in 1953 in Un acte d'amour (1953) with Kirk Douglas, but she continued to make films in France.

Brigitte's explosive sexuality took the US by storm, and the effect she had on millions of American men who hadn't seen a woman like her in a long, long time--if ever--was electric. took the US by storm, her explosive sexuality being unlike anything seen in the US since the days of the "flapper" in the 1920s. rise to the phrase "sex kitten" and fascination of her in the US consisted of magazines photographs and dubbed over French films--good, bad or indifferent, her films drew audiences--mainly men--into theaters like lemmings.

In 1965 she appeared as herself in the American-made Dear Brigitte (1965) with James Stewart (she only appeared in one scene). Just before she turned 40, Brigitte retired from movies after filming L'histoire très bonne et très joyeuse de Colinot Trousse-Chemise (1973). She prefers life outside of stardom. While it enabled her to become internationally famous, it also carried with it annoyances. It wasn't anything for her to have "fans" enter her house or wander around the grounds of her home in the hopes of getting a glimpse of her or to take something that belonged to her.

Paparazzi constantly hounded her with their cameras. She has been so soft-hearted that some people even have taken advantage of her generosity. After her life in the spotlight, Brigitte went on to become a leading spokesperson for animal rights and started the "Foundation Brigitte Bardot" dedicated solely to that cause. Her work in that realm is, perhaps, far greater than any film she could have made.

Quotes from Brigitte Bardot

A photograph can be an instant of life captured for eternity that will never cease looking back at you.

Do you have to have a reason for loving?

Film-making was not at all what I had expected.

Films have never shown the kind of relationship that can exist between two women.

Have you ever heard of a good marriage growing in front of the cameras?

I absolutely loathe luxury. It is the one thing I cannot stand.

I am 30, but there are things about me that are still 15.

I am against marriage, and I don't give a fig for society.

I am all right when I work. I am not superficial and I am not ungrateful.

I am no mother, and I won't be one.

I am not finding pregnancy much of a joy. I am afraid of childbirth, but I am afraid I can't find a way of avoiding it.

I can't do the same thing every night, the same gestures... it's like putting on dirty panties every day.

I don't think when I make love.

I gave my beauty and my youth to men. I am going to give my wisdom and experience to animals.

I have been very happy, very rich, very beautiful, much adulated, very famous, and very unhappy.

I have no private life at all. I am a hunted woman. I can't take a step without being questioned and surrounded.

I have not always loved wisely, but I was young.

I have to live with both my selves as best I may.

I know very few Americans, though I like the way they think. They think big.

I know what sin is.

I leave before being left. I decide.

I never do anything by chance.

I started out as a lousy actress and have remained one.

I was just a cheap little starlet hardly acting at all in a very mediocre film.

I'm a girl from a good family who was very well brought up. One day I turned my back on it all and became a bohemian.

If only every man who sees my films did not get the impression he can make love to me, I would be a lot happier.

If this fame, which people call my lucky break, were to stop tomorrow, I shouldn't care.

It is better to be unfaithful than to be faithful without wanting to be.

It is sad to grow old but nice to ripen.

James Stewart was so kind and considerate and had such personal integrity.

My soul is not my own any more. I cannot live like I want to. I am going to give up films.

Only idiots refuse to change their minds.

People are forever finding something wrong with you.

Percentages are why I am rich.

They may call me a sinner, but I am at peace with myself.

Vadim changed my mind about acting. Vadim was the only man who was certain I had something special to offer.

Vadim was both my teacher and my husband. I placed myself entirely in his hands.

What could be more beautiful than a dear old lady growing wise with age? Every age can be enchanting, provided you live within it.

What does it mean, being a woman?

Women get more unhappy the more they try to liberate themselves.
