Bardot was a French singer and actress and one of the biggest sex symbols of the 1960s. Her films include Le Mepris, Viva Maria!, and And God Created Woman. She starred in a total of 47 movies and recorded over 60 songs before retiring in 1973.
After leaving the entertainment industry, Bardot focused her efforts on animal rights. She became a vegetarian and established the Brigitte Bardot Foundation for the Welfare and Protection of Animals.
