    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...

    Breitbart ^ | 2/22/15
    Former film star Brigitte Bardot, France’s iconic blonde bombshell and “sex kitten” who reigned supreme from 1952 – 1973, has been on trial five times for insulting Muslims and “inciting racial hatred.” The prosecutor in her fifth trial, Anne de Fontette, wants a heftier fine and a tougher sentence: the equivalent of $24,000 and a two month (hopefully) suspended jail term. What crimes has Bardot committed in the land without a First Amendment, in the land of Hate Speech laws that are being slickly exploited by non-persecuted Muslims? Bardot has written: “I am fed up with being under the thumb...

    MONTREAL — When Kim Côté and Perle Morency added a seal-meat burger to the menu of their popular bistro in Kamouraska, Que., they decided to have some fun with the name. The Phoque Bardot Burger — combining the French word for seal and the name of the actress known for her campaign against the Canadian seal hunt — became one of the restaurant’s top sellers. But last month news of the couple’s creation made its way across the Atlantic, and animal-rights activists there failed to see the humour. A French Facebook page called “Defend the animals and protect nature” reported...

    She said in an interview last month that politics disgusts her. But today Brigitte Bardot announced that she could be running for French president at the next election in 2012. The former actress, now 76, shocked fans in 1973 when she retired to become an animal rights activist. Now she has been asked by France's Ecology Alliance party to challenge Nicolas Sarkozy for the country's leadership. The party campaigns for animal rights and against the ritual slaughter of livestock by Muslims for halal meat. Bardot has now written to President Sarkozy telling him she may run against him because he...
  • One More Feminist Upset Over Unfair Aging Differences

    If you bother to read Joanna Weiss' column in today's Boston Globe, expect to get a sense of deja . . . lu. Like untold screeds that have preceded it, "Hollywood’s burden on aging women" stamps its feet over the unequal treatment of aging in men and women. You know: male stars are allowed to age gracefully, but women must struggle ever-harder to conform to a youthful stereotype of sex-appeal. Unfair! The feminist response is to blame the culture, in this case embodied by Hollywood, for promoting shallow, sexist values. But the fault, dear Joanna, is not in our stars...

Animal rights campaigner Bardot argued that Muslims should stun animals before slaughtering them during the Aid al-Kabir holiday In December 2006 the retired French film star-turned-animal rights activist wrote a letter to France’s then interior minister, Nicolas Sarkozy, arguing that Muslims should stun animals before slaughtering them during the Aid al-Kabir holiday.

    PARIS (Reuters) - French former film star Brigitte Bardot went on trial on Tuesday for insulting Muslims, the fifth time she has faced the charge of "inciting racial hatred" over her controversial remarks about Islam and its followers. Prosecutors asked that the Paris court hand the 73-year-old former sex symbol a two-month suspended prison sentence and fine her 15,000 euros ($23,760) for saying the Muslim community was "destroying our country and imposing its acts." Since retiring from the film industry in the 1970s, Bardot has become a prominent animal rights activist but she has also courted controversy by denouncing Muslim...

    Why Men Prefer Pretty Faces So you think beauty is in the eye of the beholder? Think again. According to new research from the University of Exeter in Great Britain, the preference for pretty faces over ugly ones is embedded in our brains from the moment of birth and possibly prior to birth. Newborn babies come fully equipped with built-in preferences, including a preference for an attractive face, that help them make sense of their new environment, report the BBC News Online and Newsweek magazine. The Exeter researchers showed more than 100 infants two images that were placed side by...

    AFP ^ | May 12, 2003
    PARIS (AFP) - Animal rights activist and former sex symbol Brigitte Bardot (news) has unleashed a torrent of venom against modern France, blaming modern art, gay culture, fast food, trash TV, politicians -- but above all Muslim immigrants -- for the country's descent into decadence. In a new book entitled "A cry in the silence," the 68 year-old ex-actress confirms her reputation as a misanthropist of heroic proportions, interspersing vivid diatribes against most of humanity with elegiac passages about France as it used to be. "I do not hold religious Muslims in high esteem," she concedes in her introduction, and...
