Brigitte Bardot slams 'hypocritical and ridiculous' #MeToo movement

BRIGITTE BARDOTBRIGITTE BARDOT IN VIENNA AUSTRIA- 26 MAY 2002

"The vast majority are being hypocritical and ridiculous".

In an interview with magazine Paris Match, the 83-year-old claimed that actresses will happily use their feminine charm to land movie roles.

Bardot also aligned with the view that women are responsible, saying actresses "come on" to producers to get roles, "and then, so they'll be talked about, they say they were harassed".

Bardot said she enjoyed the attention she got when she was younger and working in the film business.

Legendary French actress Brigitte Bardot became the latest celebrity to slam the #MeToo movement, when she said Wednesday that the actresses who spoke against sexual harassment and assault did so to gain publicity.

Bardot said that she had never experienced sexual harassment in the workplace, and on the contrary "found it charming when men told me that I had a nice little backside".

'I still find it hard to understand what happened to me, ' she said.

Bardot's comments come after French actress Catherine Deneuve signed an open letter criticising the #MeToo social media campaign and related drives to expose sexual harassment in France and elsewhere.

Signed by 100 French women writers, performers and academics, and published by Le Monde newspaper last week, the letter condemned the #MeToo movement for becoming a puritanical "witch-hunt" which threatened sexual freedom.

She later apologised to sex abuse victims after a backlash against the letter.

Instead she looks after her six cats, nine dogs and some 50 other animals at her farm and animal sanctuary near the French Riviera resort of Saint Tropez.

Bardot has five fines for inciting racial hatred towards both Islams and Muslims.
