There are so many epithets that Brigitte Bardot has not received: for some she is a symbol of France, but for someone she is a symbol of sin. But all these opinions agree on one thing - Bardo won the hearts of men of the twentieth century. But she did not immediately find her happiness in love.
Director and muse
Cinema and men - this was the motto with which Brigitte Bardot walked through life, exactly until the day she suddenly ended her film career. For the first time, Brigitte got married early, at the age of 18, for the director Roger Vadim. She met Roger at the audition for the film. As a result, the production of the tape was rejected, but Bordeaux and Vadim began a passionate romance. And the girl at that time was 15 years old! Brigitte's parents were categorically against such a relationship. But the couple held out until the bride came of age and got married. Roger Vadim discovered Bardot not only as a woman, but also as an actress. Their marriage was a union of a muse and a director, the result of which was the cult film And God Created Woman, in which Brigitte Bardot played the main role. The tape instantly became popular and brought the girl not only fame, but also a divorce from her husband. Alas, the actress was not born for a quiet family life, as Brigitte later said to herself.
Already during the filming of the film "And God Created Woman" Bardot began an affair with the actor Jean-Louis Trintignant, but this love was short-lived. Bardot officially divorced Roger Vadim, and the new lover was taken into the army. After the success of the film, Bardo began a dizzying film career and an equally eventful personal life. The actress buys a villa in Saint-Tropez and begins collecting men. Exactly until the moment when, in 1959, he met the novice actor Jacques Charrie. The result of the novel is the actress's unplanned pregnancy and a quick wedding after that. And again, by a strange coincidence, the circumstances of the young husband are taken into the army, and the pregnant Bardo spends her last months alone in expectation of a child. After the birth of their son Nicolas, relations between the spouses are heating up. Sharya has psychological breakdowns, Bardot does not see himself in the role of a mother, acts in films and … starts a new romance. Another fan of the actress was her film partner Sami Frey. However, the divorce proceedings are dragging on, Sharye threatened to commit suicide, then blackmailed him with a child. As a result, the spouses were still divorced, but Bardo had to give his son to his father. And if at first she did not suffer at all due to the absence of a son in her life, then later she had to rebuild her relationship with him when he matured.
Leave on time
The failed motherhood later became a real mental trauma for Bardo, which she compensated for with voluntary help to animals and became the most famous animal protector. But for now, having escaped from another failed marriage, the star is filming new films and comes to his senses from a prolonged depression. She even makes a failed suicide attempt. For several years Brigitte has been living in a "standby" mode - she has filming, fans, fame, fleeting novels. But none of this touches the soul of a woman. Until in 1966 Bardo met the German multimillionaire Gunther Sachs. For the first time, an actress has an affair with a man not from the world of bohemia. She was attracted to Gunther by stability and the ability to build relationships without the exalted hysterics that she endured in relationships with actors. The lovers are playing a romantic wedding in Las Vegas, but real life turned out to be far from a fairy tale. Gunther was too busy with work and social life, the couple spent a lot of time in different countries, Brigitte was actively filming and did not want to be just a beautiful doll next to her husband. After stretching out in this mode for two years, the couple divorced.
After the third unsuccessful marriage, the actress entered into an easy relationship and completely devoted herself to cinema. But the offer became smaller, her first husband and director Roger Vadim supported her as best he could, filming her in his films.Bardo did not want to grow old publicly on the screen and left the stage beautifully: in 1973, she announced her retirement from the world of cinema. And she kept her word.
Foundation, dogs and love
Brigitte Bardot began a new life, where trials awaited her, for which even she was not ready. In the 80s, she had to go through oncology, the struggle with which exhausted the actress. She began to live in isolation from people, but with a huge number of rescued cats and dogs. In 1987, the actress founded the Brigitte Bardot Foundation, a charitable foundation for helping animals. Bardot sharply condemned the inhuman attitude towards animals in different countries, defended the national culture of France, for which she was repeatedly condemned for allegedly racist statements. But even lawsuits and lawsuits for large sums do not stop the actress from fighting for her ideas.
However, Bardo once again decided to try to find family happiness. And she did it. In 1992, friends introduced her to the politician Bernard Dormal. The couple modestly played a wedding without fanfare and still lives in perfect harmony. And, despite her age and the fact that the star ended her film career so quickly, in 2007 Brigitte Bardot was named one of the hundred sexiest actresses. And she deserves it.
