I’ve always preferred mythology to history. History is composed of truths that become lies, mythology of lies that become truths. One characteristic of our age is that it creates instant myths in every field. The press is responsible for inventing people who already exist and endowing them with an imaginary life, superimposed on their own.
Brigitte Bardot is a perfect example of this odd concoction. It is likely that fate set her down at the precise point where dream and morality merge. Her beauty and talent are undeniable, but she posses some other, unknown quality which attracts idolaters in an age deprived of gods. --Jean Cocteau, 1962
Brigitte Bardot (born September 28, 1934 in Paris) is a French actress and model, daughter of an industrialist. Also known simply as BB ("Bri-Bri" in childhood) she is considered the embodiment of the 1950s "sex kitten."
In the 1970s Bardot established herself as an animal rights activist. During the 1990s her controversial and outspoken political views on such issues as immigration, Islam, and homosexuality greatly affected her reputation.
Bardot starred with Trintignant in Vadim's film And God Created Woman, which pushed the boundaries of sex in film at the time, making her an overnight sensation. To this day, the scene of Bardot dancing barefoot on a table remains one of the most erotic scenes in the history of the cinema. --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brigitte_Bardot [May 2005]
Compared to Marilyn MonroeBrigitte Bardot enjoys the reputation as the most famous European pin-up girl of the twentieth-century. She had been depicted as "moodier, tougher, more independent, and adventurous than Marilyn Monroe..." Like Monroe she has had a chequered life in private and public. Bardot, however, has proved the more durable. --source unkown [Jun 2004]
