French actress called "the French sex-kitten" for over 25 years, lush and pouty. Born to a wealthy family, she went to private school and vacationed on the Riviera. A model at 15 for magazine covers, she became the protégé of director Roger Vadim; they married on 12/20/1952. He put her in the film "And God Created Woman," in 1956, which led to her position as the highest paid actress in France within three years.
A poll showed that Bardot was the main topic of conversation in 47% of all households in the France of 1960. However, her popularity was uneven in France. Women have been known to spit on her image and priests have denounced her from the pulpit. She was the femme fatale exemplar. The press have chronicled her misfortunes with relish, her marriage misadventures, the abandonment of her baby son and her suicide attempts. In a celebrated essay, Simone de Vouvoir diagnosed the threat she posed as a force of nature, "a shameless hussy."
Actor Jacques Charrier was her second husband and the father of her son, and millionaire playboy Gunther Sacks was her third husband. On 8/16/1992, she was married in Switzerland for the fourth time to seven-year-younger Bernard d'Ormale. When she overdosed on pills on 11/14/1992, her husband said it was an accident. She had taken pills and cut her wrists before, in 1960, nine months after her son and only child was born, and again on the eve of her 49th birthday. (Some reports claim as many as six suicide attempts.) Her son Nicolas had been raised by relatives and was estranged from his mother for years until they reconciled shortly after Bardot met d'Ormale in June, 1992.
Extremely volatile, Bardot thrives on controversy. She has become an animal rights activist, standing up for the prevention of cruelty in hunting seals and for the welfare of dogs, donkeys, sheep, whales and other animals, including that of the wolf of the Vosges, an elusive animal that is shot for killing sheep. In 1986 she created the Brigitte Bardot Foundation and has set a record as the most ardent celebrity advocate of animal rights. Most of her own menagerie of animals were saved from pounds or the butcher's block, some 40 cats, a dozen dogs and some assorted livestock. Vadim once said, "She did not get much affection from her parents and when we started dating, she didn't want jewels, but a dog."
For 20 years she felt that she herself was the hunted animal, stalked and hounded by the paparazzi.
From 1973, when she abandoned acting, she considered that it was another life and she, another person. She went from superstar to recluse, refusing to speak to journalists outside of the rare interview. She fiercely guards the privacy of her farm outside Paris and a compound that includes her house near St.-Tropez on the French Riviera. Being hurt and used in her career, she now feels that the only creatures she can trust are her beloved animals. She sued Paris-Match for invasion of privacy and was awarded damages of $16,000 in July 1987.
In her autobiography, "Initials B.B.," 1996, she said that she'd had over a hundred lovers, some of them women. She refused to have cosmetic surgery or to pretend to be youthful, but moved into her senior years with defiance. In the '80s, Roger Vadim published "Bardot, Deneuve, Fonda: An Autobiography," about which Bardot said, "I despise him and I don't give a damn about his book."
