Brigitte Bardot – a Naïve witch or a Wanton Virgin?

Sunday, 29 August 2010

Brigitte BardotThere is no a famous actress in our times that evoked such opposite opinions with the wide public as Brigitte Anne-Marie Bardot. Mostly known as Brigitte Bardot she is still popular and loved. This legendary actress was acknowledged the symbol of sexual revolution in her young period and yet, the sexual revolution was initiated by her and the range of perception of her is too wide. She is he woman perceived by various people differently. Long time ago Brigitte was known as the first beauty of the cinematography and currently she is the main witch of France and Europe. And what is the reason of such a drastic turn in opinion of the society regarding Brigitte?

Brigitte Bardot was an epoch for people living within 50s-70s of the previous century. She was born on September 28, 1934 in Paris to the family of the prosperous bourgeois family. Her father was a big fish in commerce and her mother failed to become a great actress. From the childhood Brigitte was keen on creative aspects of live ignoring such things as school and study. At the age of thirteen Brigitte was selected to the National Academy of Dance (only eight girls out of 130 passed the exam), where she studied within three years to the basics of Russian ballet choreography trained by Boris Knyazev. A bit later she got concerned in something more attractive than dancing when she modeled in a fashion show by the advice of her mother. Sooner in 1952 she started her cinema career when she featured in the movie «Trou normand».

At the age of eighteen she married to Roger Vadim, the promising director with the Russian roots. Vadim committed to make Brigitte the symbol of the entire generation. Though that was not the fairy tale and within four years within 1952 to 1956 Bardot featured in more than twenty movies, and none of them was successful. The film by Vadim «Et Dieu... crea la femme/And God Created Woman» (1956) paid her scot and lot for all previous sidetracks and this movie made Brigitte famous. It is not just fame but the name Brigitte became popular and she became the phenomenon. On the one part, Bardot was depicted in the picture at one of the artistic exhibitions in Vatican in 60s associated with the sin and on the other part the bust of Bardot served as a sample for the national symbol of France, Marianne.

After 1956 Bardot featured in over 30 movies and she completed her career when she was 39, in 1973 when she refused to appear in public with visual ageing changes on her face. By that time the personal life of the actress was rigorously discussed and it was the subject of scandals.   Brigitte married several times after she divorced with Roger Vadim. She was the wife to the actor Jacques Charrier by whom she had her only child, a son, Nicolas-Jacques Charrier, then she married to the German millionaire playboy Gunter Sachs, and Bernard d'Ormale with whom she lives till now since 1992. Her affairs with Jean-Louis Trintignant, musicians Serge Gainsbourg and Sacha Distel are worth mentioning.

Currently Bardot is considered a witch not due to her active personal life since a rare celebrity leads a modest life with the strong family traditions. First of all, the society is shocked with the fact that Brigitte Bardot looks like an old woman frayed at the edges and she has nothing of her former beauty left. The other reason of the social negative emotions towards her is the position she keeps. This is radicalism teling in one word. Bardot is the radical protector of animal rights.

In 1986 she established the Brigitte Bardot Foundation for the Welfare and Protection of Animals. She is now a vegetarian and she is a strong animal rights activist. She condemns seal hunting, she is against fur clothes and holding animals in captivity, including zoos. She is for the humanistic solution to such vital problems as lessening of number of homeless dogs with the help of sterilization not mercy killing. And Bardot tries her best to achieve all these goals with the typical intransigence which goes to fanaticism.

Furthermore, the main reason of negative attitude to Brigitte is the unconcealed radical political opinion. Since the end of 80s and till now Bardot has been regularly fined for public announcements by the French jurisdiction made in public interviews, public speeches and autobiography records often characterized as «non-politically correct». Bardot announces that she is really concerned with the active penetration of Islam into Europe, worsening of positions of traditional Christian culture, diffusing of French nation due to inflow of «blood» from Africa and Middle East. On the top of it, Brigitte holds the opinion so opposite for the modern show-biz and glamour society in regards to sexual minority. These facts are more than enough for the European public opinion to make an idol into a witch and social outcast of civilization.

Here Bardot is prohibited to announce her personal opinion ignoring the fact that she never appeals to any violent actions against Muslims or homosexuals. She just voices her concern in the situation that troubles her. The society accentuates on her scandal actions to protect animals again ignoring the fact that all her actions are effective. Finally, nobody is concerned that women at the age of seventy five look the same as Brigitte while most celebrities who look slim without any wrinkles would look differently without numerous plastic surgeries. Brigitte has an influence in fashion and music. She is the one to popularize a wide open neck that exposes both shoulders used for knitted sweaters or jumpers. And perhaps she does not deserve calling a witch? She is perhaps an unhappy woman who lives alone without a true family but who can lead an honest though eccentric life.
