Brigitte Bardot blasts #MeToo actresses as 'hypocritical and ridiculous'

Brigitte Bardot blasts #MeToo actresses as 'hypocritical and ridiculous'

SCREEN legend Brigitte Bardot has attacked the #MeToo movement claiming actors who complain of sexual harassment are just looking for publicity.

"Lots of actresses try to play the tease with producers to get a role", she said, as translated by AFP. Then later they say they were harassed.

Bardot said her comments on sexual misconduct only concerned actresses, not women in general.

Bardot, who became famous in the 1950s, marrying film director Roger Vadim when she was 18, said talk about harassment was getting in the way of more important topics and said she had never been the victim of sexual harassment.

Deneuve also spoke out specifically against French radio host and former porn star Brigitte Lahaie, one of the women who signed the original letter, who later said that some women can enjoy being raped.

But while Deneuve maintains that "nothing in the letter" warranted the subsequent backlash, she has apologised to victims of sexual assault who may have been offended by it. And I thought it was nice to be told that I was handsome or that I had a nice little ass.

Yet she admitted to the magazine that she has not digested what happened to her when she was at the height of her fame in the 1960s, and her love life made worldwide headlines. 'That uncontrollable time made me very distrustful of the human race'.

Bardot sold her houses and most of her belongings, including the wedding dress from her first marriage to director Roger Vadim and jewels from her third husband, the German millionaire Gunter Sachs, to finance her foundation, which campaigns for animal protection.

Bardot has five fines for inciting racial hatred towards both Islams and Muslims. Bardot has also been criticised for her support for French far-right party National Front.

"I love freedom", she later added.
