She will celebrate her 87th birthday on September 28. On this occasion, the actress gave an interview to our colleagues from Parisien Magazine. She talks about her life, her fight against animals, her friend Joséphine Baker and Bébel, whose tributes she finds disproportionate.

On the evening of her existence, Brigitte Bardot said she was in disillusionment.

Parisien Magazine

 her greatest regret:

"May the suffering of animals continue after her."

Of course, associations like L214 follow her path of struggle but she thinks that men are

"barbarians, bastards, disgusting, rotten, monsters".

She cites as proof the recent massacre of 1,428 cetaceans in a fjord in the Faroe Islands.

She wrote to Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen to express her disgust and outrage at these devastating traditions that continue.

His question is still the same, for fifty years and the birth of his Foundation: what have animals done to deserve this?

She talks about her mare Mysti that she saved last year. She was undergoing mutilations.

"She was even used as a sex object, do you realize?"

, she protests. Before continuing:

“What fights have we really won? Yes, we had small victories of nothing at all (...). I am going to die one of these days, like Belmondo, but without having had what I have been striving for in my entire life. I met all the presidents, all the ministers, and I got nothing. ”

She recognizes that Valéry Giscard d'Estaing helped her little when she was in Canada to defend baby seals. On the other hand, she is more severe towards François Mitterrand who, according to her, was only obsessed with the Louvre pyramid. As for Emmanuel Macron, whom she found

"absolutely zero"

on the subject which is so dear to her heart, she believes that he has been bamboozled by the hunters.

She is decidedly not gentle with the current President of the Republic, whose memorial policy she deplores.

Her friend Joséphine Baker at the Pantheon?

According to Brigitte Bardot, this is apparently not the idea of ​​the year.

“I'm not sure that would have been his thing.

To meet up with Victor Hugo, with people like that ... Let's say that she was different, incomparable.

It’s a tribute to her, but I don’t know if she would have liked it very much



thinks, adding that she doesn’t care where she’s going to be buried.

And finally to mention Jean-Paul Belmondo,

"an adorable man"

, she said, not understanding the meaning of the national homage paid to him.

"His funeral at the Invalides, with the government and all the rest, I don't think he would have liked that, he was not a type of great spectacle,"

says Brigitte Bardot.

Before warning the next President (s) of the Republic:

"I wouldn't like that for me ..."
