Brigitte Bardot Denounces the #MeToo Movement

Brigitte Bardot Denounces the #MeToo Movement

Brigitte Bardot does not endorse the #MeToo movement.

The 83-year-old French And God Created Woman cinema legend called out the movement during an interview with French magazine Paris Match, as reported by Variety.

Brigitte asserts that in the case of actresses – but “not women in general” – “the vast majority of cases” are “hypocritical, ridiculous, without interest,” and that the movement distracts from “important themes that could be discussed.”

“I thought it was nice to be told that I was beautiful or that I had a nice little a”. This kind of compliment is nice,” she said, suggesting that actresses “come on” to producers for roles, “and then, so they’ll be talked about, they say they were harassed.”

“In reality, rather than helping them, it hurts them.”

Brigitte retired from acting in 1973 to focus on her work for animal rights.

    finally a woman who is encouraged to tell the truth.

    Listen, some people like complements, but don’t assume everyone likes to be judged based on their sexual appealingness. This is bigger than just actresses looking pretty. I know research scientists and chemists who are told ridiculous things. There’s no need to comment on your co-workers ass, touch, or insinuate anything else. You need a girlfriend/boyfriend? There’s an app for that.

  • wearing

    neither you nor her speak for me, thanks.

  • J.K.

    Your time is up woman, it’s a new world now.

  • Enrico Troielli

    I can see her point to be honest. This is becoming a ridiculous witch hunt now and distracting from real abuses. I am with women that are honest and coming from a place of truth, not with attention seekers and liars (see the woman that accused aziz ansari and in the end turned out that she accused him of being a bad fucker! ridiculous)

  • rubie

    For real….really? look their is a huge difference in giving a compliment than grabbing some …..i mean really ? i guess she is old and she doesn’t get what we are doing.

  • moody

    just because she’s old doesn’t mean anything. and what exactly are “we” doing?

  • Jamie

    She looks a little like Sally Struthers in that picture.

  • Beau

    Me neither, thank you very much.

  • Nosy Parker Posie

    Slow your roll BB.

  • wearing

    Shes one bad story out of the dozens of real & appropriate stories. I dont think you should think of her story as the face of the movent. Theres countless others that outweigh that one bad one.

  • Ram

    she’s probaby very bitter she used to be hot and now looks like that. you’re 83, grandma – time to shuffle off your mortal coil. the younger/relevant ones will take it from here…

  • MyName

    Yes, many are telling the truth and some are not. The overall picture helps to guess which of each because it can be difficult to prove.
    I agree with her that it shouldn’t be all or nothing or even one sided discussed.

  • MyName

    There is a huge difference but some are objecting to everything. Sometimes words can be harassment. An authentic compliment can be nice and shouldn’t make you feel uncomfortable. The appropriateness also matters, such as from whom.

  • cafeast

    She did have a gorgeous ass.

  • cafeast

    I am sure @ 83, she is over being bitter. Get over yourself. She is a cinema icon.

  • Lalique Murano

    She stands up for animals but won’t stand up (and with) women? Brigitte, YOU are the hypocrite.

  • guest1342

    She is right. This has became a witch hunt, we only need now a Young actress saying it and that mee too movement will be doomed.

    you must be the typical hypocrite who sits on his boss’s desk opening his legs to get what he wants, and when your boss rests one of his hands on one of your legs you scream “sexual harassment”
    Many women and men use sex and provocation to attract attention (get more “LIKES” and “COMMENTS” on their social networks, promote a movie, a new album, etc.) and then complain about that “attention”. If you get into the puddle of dirty water do not complain about being dirty.

  • wearing

    Actually, I don’t do that. But thanks for showing people how you really think of women. We’re not fuck toys, loser. You sound like someone teased you and now you hate-masturbate to women.

  • Will

    I know this is the big dream that one little thing will stop this movement but that’s not going to happen, it’s the new normal like it or not.

  • Will

    It’s sad to watch dementia play out this way.

  • damian gonzales

    I never generalize to all women, I was referring to the entertainment environment itself. Your answer is the typical generic response that people make when they run out of arguments to refute their points of view.
    You know, deep down you’re upset because you know that many women are somewhat hypocritical about this issue.

  • guest1342

    That me too movement works on generalizations. Once a young actress says what Brigite Bardot did everything will change or at least… the witch hunt will end.

  • wearing

    “I never generalize…” ///// “…you know that many women…”
    SHUUUTTT UPPP

  • damian gonzales

    “many women” It is not the same as “All the women”.

  • Legendary Trolly

    You damn right. This old lady just came with that hot shit!!! WOOWWZERZ!!!
