Brigitte Bardot slams 'hypocritical and ridiculous' #MeToo movement


French actress Brigitte Bardot criticised the #MeToo movement as "hypocritical and ridiculous" in an interview with the French magazine Paris Match on Wednesday, as translated by French 24. The #MeToo movement has taken Hollywood by a storm.

"Describing her own experiences as a long-serving figure in the entertainment industry, Brigitte suggested she "found it charming" when a producer would comment on her appearance or, as she put it, "[tell me] that I was attractive or I had a nice little backside".

'The vast majority are being hypocritical and ridiculous.

Speaking about her own experiences, Bardot claims she "was never the victim of sexual harassment".

French activist and former actress Brigitte Bardot said many actresses sexually provoke film producers to win roles and then complain about harassment to get attention.

The star of "And God Created Woman" says many actresses have come out with sexual misconduct allegations "so that we talk about them".

In addition, not too long ago, fellow French actress Catherine Deneuve also sparked a lot of worldwide controversy after she criticized the women of Me Too!

This is not the first time Bardot has made controversial remarks. In 2004 she was convicted of inciting racial hatred for her comments on French Muslims in her book A Cry In The Silence. "But trying to seduce someone, even persistently or clumsily, is not - and nor is men being gentlemanly a chauvinist attack". "Men have been punished summarily, forced out of their jobs when all they did was touch someone's knee of try to steal a kiss".

'It is to them and them alone that I offer my apologies'. "To the contrary. I am a liberated woman and I will stay that way".
