Brigitte Bardot in one sentence – BB is one of the most beautiful women in the film history.


I have always adored beautiful young men. Just because I grow older, my taste doesn't change. So if I can still have them, why not?

Men are beasts and even beasts don't behave as they do.

On experience: Every age can be enchanting, provided you live within it.

If I could do anything about the way people behave towards each other, I would, but since I can't I'll stick to animals.
