Brigitte Bardot: 'Vast majority' of actresses claiming sexual harassment are hypocrites
Jan 19, 2018, 01:58
French film icon Brigitte Bardot has criticized the #MeToo campaign against sexual harassment, saying many actresses complaining of harassment are "hypocritical and ridiculous".
"In reality, rather than helping them, it hurts them", she said.
"There are lots of actors who are teases with producers so they can get roles", Bardot told Paris Match magazine in an eight-page spread promoting her new book, Tears of Battle, about her fight for animal rights.
"In the vast majority of cases they are being hypocritical, ridiculous, uninteresting".
Bardot, who is known as an animal rights activist these days but inspired the term "sex kitten" as a young actress, said she never had been a victim of sexual harassment and found it "charming to be told that I was lovely or that I had a nice little ass".
The 83-year-old actress added that the topic takes away from "important themes that could be discussed", and stated that she has never been a victim of sexual harassment.
This is not the first time Bardot has made controversial remarks.
In an open letter published last week in Le Monde newspaper, Deneuve and 100 or so performers, scholars and other prominent French women said men are being unfairly accused of sexual misconduct and harassment and should be free to hit on women.
It also inferred that women fondled on public transport should just get over it.
But 74-year-old Catherine later apologized to "all victims of odious acts who may have felt offended" by the letter, which defended men's "freedom to importune".
