    LOS ANGELES — French actress Brigitte Bardot has criticized the #MeToo movement and said that she has never been a victim of sexual harassment. In an interview with Paris Match magazine, Bardot asserted that for actresses specifically, "not women in general," "the vast majority of cases" are "hypocritical, ridiculous, without interest." The 83-year-old added that the topic takes away from "important themes that could be discussed." Bardot became an international sex symbol after her starring role in 1956's "And God Made Woman." "I thought it was nice to be told that I was beautiful or that I had a nice...

  • Depardieu Critic 'a Petty-Minded Pygmy' - Deneuve

    The Local ^ | 21 Dec 2012
    Veteran French actress Catherine Deneuve launched a strong defence of Gérard Depardieu on Friday, calling a virulent critic of her fellow thespian's bid for tax exile a petty-minded pygmy. Deneuve's defence came after the reclusive French film legend Brigitte Bardot castigated attacks on a man who is arguably France's leading actor with roles in nearly 170 films. The hulking 64-year-old star's move to Belgium has been derided as "pathetic" by Prime Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault while another top French actor, Philippe Torreton, publicly accused him of sulking like a playground creep. Deneuve, a chiselled blonde actress whose career spans nearly a...

    PARIS (AFP) – Brigitte Bardot, one-time French screen goddess turned animal rights activist, wants the European Union to institute a "Vegetarian Day" as part of the battle against global warming. In a letter this week to European Commission chief Jose Manuel Barrosoa, Bardot said "a few weeks before the Copenhagen climate summit, I would like to draw your attention to the need to question cattle-farming, whose effects on the environment are of concern." Quoting studies by the World Bank and the UN food agency FAO, Bardot said in the letter which was released Friday that cattle-raising not only caused high...

    The sixties sex symbol said that Republican John McCain's running mate was "disconcertingly stupid" and that she hoped she would lose the November 4 presidential elections. Referring to Mrs Palin's now famous self-portrait as a "pitbull with lipstick", Mrs Bardot – who runs an animal rights foundation – said: "I know dogs well and I can assure you that no pitbull, no dog, nor any other animal is as dangerous as you are." "I hope you lose these elections because that would be a victory for the world," she went on. "By denying the responsibility of man in global warming,...

    French film legend-turned-activist Brigitte Bardot took a swipe at Sarah Palin on Tuesday, saying the US vice presidential candidate was a disgrace to women. "I hope you lose these elections because that would be a victory for the world," Bardot wrote in an open letter to Republican John McCain's running mate in the November vote. "By denying the responsibility of man in global warming, by advocating gun rights and making statements that are disconcertingly stupid, you are a disgrace to women and you alone represent a terrible threat, a true environmental catastrophe," wrote Bardot. The screen icon from the 1960s,...

    France's 1960s screen icon Brigitte Bardot received a 15,000-euro (23,000 dollar) fine on Tuesday for inciting hatred against Muslims. In December 2006, the film star-turned-animal rights activist wrote a letter to France's then interior minister, current President Nicolas Sarkozy, arguing that Muslims should stun animals before slaughtering them during the Aid al-Kabir holiday. She outraged anti-racist groups by saying: "I've had enough of being led by the nose by this whole population which is destroying us, (and) destroying our country by imposing their ways." Bardot, now 73 and suffering from arthritis, was absent from Tuesday's court hearing in Paris. She...

    PARIS (AP) - Brigitte Bardot was convicted Tuesday of provoking discrimination and racial hatred for writing that Muslims are destroying France. A Paris court also handed down a $23,325 fine against the former screen siren and animal rights campaigner. The court also ordered Bardot to pay $1,555 in damages to MRAP.

A leading French anti-racism group known as MRAP filed a lawsuit last year over a letter she sent to then-Interior Minister Nicolas Sarkozy. The remarks were published in her foundation's quarterly journal. In...

    Bardot’s “crimes,” such as they are, are straightforward: She has committed the sin of speaking frankly and unapologetically about her country’s hostile Muslim immigrant population and – what is evidently worse – questioning the compatibility of some Muslim religious practices with Western society. Common sense, one might think, or least subjects fit for fruitful debate. Her mistake was in thinking that she had the freedom to say so. But as France struggles to control a large (Muslims make up nearly ten percent of the country) and increasingly radicalized Muslim population critics of Islamism are finding themselves more actively persecuted by...

    France's most famous ice cream maker has has invoked the wrath of actress turned animal rights crusader Brigitte Bardot after creating a foie gras flavour. Berthillon, founded in 1954, assures customers on its website that its ice cream contains "50 per cent foie gras of French origin made from grain-reared geese", and recommends it as an aperitif spread on spiced bread. Miss Bardot accused Berthillon, which sells its famed glaces on the Ile Saint-Louis - the island on the Seine in the heart of Paris - of being an "accomplice to this industry of suffering and death". 72-year-old former movie...

    PARIS - Brigitte Bardot, angered over what she called France's insensitivity to the plight of minks, has threatened to move to Sweden. The French film star, who runs a foundation for animal rights, wrote a letter Wednesday to Swedish Prime Minister Goran Persson calling his nation one of only a few countries "that takes into consideration animal well-being." Bardot also contacted the French Finance Ministry to criticize France for attacking Sweden's proposal for new European Commission rules on conditions for raising minks in Sweden. "The intervention of my government makes me ashamed, ashamed to be French," she wrote. While Bardot...
