Bardot: ‘MeToo’ protest hypocritical
Former French actress and sex symbol Brigitte Bardot says most actresses who have protested sexual harassment are “hypocritical” and “ridiculous” because many of them “tease” producers to land film parts.
The star of “And God Created Woman” says many actresses have come out with sexual misconduct allegations “so that we talk about them.” In an interview with Paris-Match weekly, the 83-year-old Bardot says she’s never been a victim of sexual harassment.
Bardot is the second French film industry star to distance herself from the worldwide protest movement against sexual misconduct. Catherine Deneuve has signed a collective op-ed saying “insistent or clumsy hitting-on is not a crime.”
