BARDOT AT 80
Difficult to believe, but the "sex kitten" who scandalized the 1950s and the 1960s with her unbelievable beauty, her wonderful childlike screen persona and her lack of clothes, is now an octogenarian.
Twenty years ago, for the first and only time, a writer was granted access to the woman behind the myth to tell her amazing story.
Now, that story is brought up to date.
For sixty years, Brigitte Bardot was an international phenomenon. Often acclaimed as the most beautiful woman on earth, her legendary on-screen audacity and her off-screen private life has both shocked and intrigued. Bardot's fame, which began with "And God Created Woman," carried her to mythical status and cinematic stardom.
Mobbed, stalked, and hounded for all of her adult life, while being pursued by lovesick fans and the media, Bardot was tormented in her attempt to separate her private life from her public life.
After several attempted suicides, she retired from films --- completely cut herself off from that first life --- to delve into her second, animal rights, with zeal and devotion.
Jeffrey Robinson got to know Bardot, her husbands, her former lovers, her co-stars and her oldest friends, and lifts the veil that has obscured the private stories of both her lives.
This is his internationally best-selling biography, revised and updated, telling the remarkably intimate story of this remarkable woman turned 80.
