Brigitte’s first love
Unknown to most, Brigitte’s first love was ballet. She wanted to become a ballerina early in her life and attended ballet school, beginning in 1947. She went there for 3 years, but soon transitioned into a career as a model. In 1949 she modeled in a fashion show and starred in the fashion magazine Jardin des Modes.
Bardot was then noticed by a young film director at the age of 15. The director showed her fashion pictures to another director and screenwriter, leading to them asking her to audition for a role in an upcoming film. Brigitte got the role, but the film was unfortunately cancelled. However, she had now had a taste of acting and absolutely loved it. She started her acting career in 1952 and became world-famous in 1957, after starring in And God Created Woman.
Brigitte hasn’t had an easy life. Several of her marriages failed, she battled depression and survived breast cancer.
All of this goes to show that she is more than just a pretty face: she also possesses incredible inner strength. Her life has been extraordinary and she is currently enjoying it to the fullest.
