With a coquettish allure like no other actress of her time, Brigitte Bardot became a member of a rare club - that of foreign-language stars who attain international success on the silver screen. The original sex kitten - a term actually coined for the French actress - Bardot's sultry appeal made her a star in Europe in the 1950s. With the international success of "Et Dieu Crea la Femme" ("And God Created Woman") (1956), Bardot became an international sex symbol. Credited with popularizing the bikini, Bardot's uninhibited sexuality was unlike any American star of her era, save perhaps Marilyn Monroe. Bardot brought more to the film world than just sex appeal, however; her popularity proved to be a key factor in establishing a market for foreign films in English-speaking countries. Bardot would go on to age gracefully in her native land and become one of the most outspoken advocates of animal rights, proving she was always much more than a beautiful face and muse of inspiration for everyone from musicians to filmmakers to fashion designers. In fact, decades later, German supermodel Claudia Schiffer owed her entire career to Bardot, as she became the face of Guess, Inc. in the early 1990s, due simply to her amazing resemblance to the actress - proving the Bardot look of wild, cascading blonde hair and pouty lips would never go out of style.

Bonus Trivia


Bardot was awarded the French Legion of Honor in 1985.


Bardot was successfully sued by her son Nicholas and his father Jacques Charrier over descriptions she included in her memoirs. She referred to her son as a "tumor" and to Charrier as "vulgar macho." A French court ordered Bardot to pay $26,000 to Charrier and $17,000 to her son.


In 1993, Bardot wrote to Pope John Paul II offering to send money over to Africa to care for starving animals. She was incensed when the Pope responded that she should send money over to take care of people and that they would tend to the animals. Bardot also wrote Russian President Boris Yeltsin over what she called the massacre of seal pups in Northern Russia.


In June 2000 a French court convicted Bardot of inciting "discrimination, hatred or racial violence" after making statements regarding a Muslim festival during which sheep were slaughtered. Bardot, a strident animal rights activist, was also fined $3000 for stating "my country, France, my homeland, my land is again invaded by an overpopulation of foreigners, especially Muslims" to the authors of the book Pluto's Square.
