Brigitte Bardot, born on September 28, 1934, is a French actress, singer, and animal rights activist who rose to international fame in the 1950s and 1960s. She starred in numerous films, including “And God Created Woman” and “Contempt,” and became known for her sultry on-screen presence and her embodiment of the “sex kitten” archetype.
In the 1970s, Bardot retired from acting and focused on her animal rights activism. She founded the Brigitte Bardot Foundation for the Welfare and Protection of Animals in 1986, which advocates for animal rights and the end of animal cruelty.
Throughout the years, Bardot has remained a controversial figure due to her outspoken views on various social and political issues, including immigration and Islam. She has been fined several times for hate speech in France, where such speech is illegal.
As of my knowledge cutoff in 2021, Brigitte Bardot is still alive and living in Saint-Tropez, France.
