Brigitte Bardot was a very famous French sex symbol during the 1950s. She still is a sex symbol but rather in the nursing home than Hollywood.
She grew up in a relatively wealthy family in Paris who had helped her get into ballet and acting. After her short career as a child fashion model, the predators of Hollywood had gotten her into acting.
During the 1950’s, she was one of the few European actresses that had been relevant in the United States. She began in English-speaking films with big roles in Helen of Troy and Doctor at Sea. She was labeled as one of the first “sex kittens” during this era.
Once Brigitte had gotten older, uglier, and without a cause in her life, she turned to animal activism. She had abused what little fame that she had left to promote animal activist groups. She had also founded the Brigitte Bardot Foundation, which is yet another narcissist celebrity charitable organization that keeps her legacy alive.
Here she is with Serge Gainsbourg in a music video for the song Bonnie and Clyde:
And here she is singing La Madrague, another song made famous by Bardot in 1963.
Unlike fellow sex symbol Raquel Welch who shunned nudity for religious reasons, Bardot was very open with getting naked for art. She’s gone topless for several films and like everyone else, we loved her legendary nude bed scene with the sexy Jane Birkin in Ms. Don Juan. Pics and videos are all below.
We can’t be the only one who noticed the physical similarities between Brigitte Bardot and Pamela Anderson. They’re both blonde sexpots with big hair!
