bonne anniversaire brigitte
today bardot turned 75. this is one of cinema's most alluring actresses who chose to not age before the camera. the mythic garbo appears to have made that choice but studying her life has taught me that she did try to make more films before giving up at 36.
well, today france must be in jubilation mode. bardot represents many aspects of french culture and mores. independence of spirit, unabashed sexuality, and that pout.
one writer brought forth the idea that bardot did not so much imply that she was 'having' sex as much as the 'possibility' that sex may be had. this is a very important distinction that helps us to understand the french custom whereby flirting is a very important element of communication.
happy birthday free spirit, animal loving, french icon brigitte!!!
