About Brigitte Bardot:
French film actress Brigitte Bardot was a feminine role model in the 1950s to 1970s, an international star and
the face and muse of many artists of the period. Equally at home in childlike roles or as a femme fatale, she
worked with the top film directors in roles that were both light and sensual, quickly becoming a sex symbol and
international movie star, like a French Marilyn Monroe. With 48 films under her belt in a 21-year career, Brigitte
Bardot, also known by her initials of BB, is one of France’s most famous artists. She retired from the world of
acting in 1973 to devote her time to animal rights, even establishing the Brigitte Bardot Foundation.
