The former screen siren’s thoughts on harassment in Hollywood are of no interest to anyone
There can’t be many famous people left who are yet to offer their opinion on #MeToo, so it was only a matter of time before we discovered what former screen siren Brigitte Bardot makes of it all.
In a new interview with Paris Match, the 83-year-old was asked what she thinks about the movement. She replied that many actresses flirt with producers to get roles and the vast majority of harassment claims are “hypocritical, ridiculous and without interest”.
Bardot is second French film star after Catherine Deneuve to lambast women involved in campaigns such as #MeToo and its French equivalent
French former actor Brigitte Bardot has joined Catherine Deneuve in expressing distaste for women in the film industry who complain of sexual harassment, saying “in the vast majority of cases” it is “hypocritical, ridiculous and uninteresting”.
In an interview with Paris Match, Bardot said: “Many actresses flirt with producers to get a role. Then when they tell the story afterwards, they say they have been harassed … in actual fact, rather than benefit them, it only harms them.”
