Divine Brigitte Bardot celebrates her 86th birthday on September 28. She was born into a wealthy Parisian family and had everything materially: she attended a private school and singing lessons, and under the supervision of the best choreographers she devoted herself to ballet. But she suffered emotionally. Her parents were hypocritical, had their daughters reprimanded, and any emotional expressions in the family were unacceptable. Brigitte Bardot therefore suffered from depression and relationship problems, and although she was very beautiful and talented, she never trusted herself.
Her first husband helped her to fame
Nevertheless, she broke through as a model very soon: she appeared on the front page of the prestigious Elle magazine as a brunette at the age of only fifteen. Strongly make-up eyes and long blond hair tied in became the hallmarks of the famous beauty casual bun – This hairstyle has been copied by women all over the world. She was not born a blonde: her first husband, director Roger Vadim († 72), whom she married at the age of just eighteen, had her blonde bleached.
A beauty she didn’t believe in
The actress became famous, for example, with the drama Contempt (1963) or the film Viva Maria! (1965). The attractive young woman stubbornly refused to go to Hollywood and remained loyal to European film. And while the whole world considered her a sex symbol and an icon, she bothered with her appearance and artificial imagination. She was afraid she wouldn’t be loved, that she wasn’t pretty enough … In short, that she wasn’t perfect. And what do you know about Brigitte Bardot? Take our quiz!
