It's hard to believe, but her parents disliked Brigitte and considered her an "ugly duckling". Mother and, especially, father dreamed of the birth of an heir. Once they listened to the prediction of a gypsy woman who predicted a great future for their child, and felt that her son would increase their capital and glorify the surname. But fate, contrary to their expectations, gave Louis and Anne-Marie a daughter. The Bardot couple despised Brigitte for her ordinary appearance, the girl herself did not believe in her own attractiveness: as a child, she wore braces on her teeth, glasses with wide glasses and suffered from allergic skin rashes. And she was also worried that her parents do not love her younger sister Marie-Jeanne (her relatives called her Mizhanu), and my mother likes to repeat with or without: "Brigitte is a scoundrel, and even ugly.
Meeting with the "old Russian"
Since childhood, having absorbed the thought of her own unattractiveness, Brigitte could not even imagine that she would act in films. But the girl was seriously carried away by ballet: her grace was appreciated not only by teachers, but also by gloss editors. In 1950, 15-year-old Bardo appeared on the pages of Elle, where her future husband noticed her. A descendant of a white émigré and a French diplomat, Vadim Igorevich Plemyannikov, who went down in history as Roger Vadim, was just taking his first steps in cinema. Leafing through the magazine, he drew attention to the young ballerina and begged the patron Marc Allegre to arrange auditions for her. The boss did not appreciate the girl's charm, but Vadim “disappeared”. A whirlwind romance began, splashing out in Roger's debut film And God Created Woman, which made Bardot famous throughout the world.
Trying to leave this life for love
Brigitte's parents were categorically against the young daughter's romance with Vadim. So much so that the father decided to "send" his daughter to the UK so that she would forget about this hobby and meet a man of a more serious profession - a banker, say, or an investor. Bardo rebelled and decided to get away from parental oppression radically: after waiting for mom and dad to go to the theater, she opened the oven and turned on the gas at full power. Our heroine was born under a lucky star: that evening the performance was canceled, and the Bardo couple returned home early. They found their daughter unconscious in the kitchen and immediately called a doctor.
Brigitte's argument worked, and the family gave the go-ahead for the marriage with Vadim, but with a number of conditions: Roger converted from Orthodoxy to Catholicism and slept with the bride in different rooms before the wedding. Their romantic relationship did not last long: on the set of And God Created Woman, Brigitte had an affair with Jean-Louis Trintignant (just four years after the wedding), and yet, after the breakup, she maintained a warm relationship with Vadim.
"Legalization" of bikini
In childhood and early adolescence, Bardot was shy and timid, but Roger Vadim's love and acting popularity helped her to become uninhibited and independent of public opinion. The actress was one of the first to appear on European beaches in revealing bikinis. For that time, a separate swimsuit was the height of indecency, but Brigitte did not hesitate to defile in it in front of photographers, and not just anywhere, but at the Cannes Film Festival. Moreover, she confidently shone on movie screens in a bikini in the film "Manina, a Girl in a Bikini", which was released in 1952. It is Bardot and Marilyn Monroe that modern women of fashion owe their beautiful tan and seductive swimwear.
It's hard to find a less tolerant star than Bardo. Since the early 1970s (around this time she left the cinema forever), Brigitte began to actively advocate for animal rights and attack those who offend them. Amid these protests, the Frenchwoman began to criticize Islam and its followers and speak out against immigrants from Muslim countries. Bardo was so unrestrained in her words that she was fined five times (!) For inciting ethnic hatred. Writing out another fine - Brigitte had to pay amounts from one and a half thousand to five thousand euros - the judge complained that she was tired of punishing the actress for the same offenses. Repeatedly got from Bardo and gays, who, according to her, always and in vain complain about the oppression of heterosexuals.
