Brigitte and her first love
Brigitte, unbeknownst to many, was a ballet lover. Early in life, Brigitte wanted to be a ballerina. She began attending ballet school in 1947. She attended the school for three years but quickly switched to a modeling career. In 1949, she appeared in the fashion magazine Jardin Des Modes and participated in a fashion showcase.
A young director noticed Bardot at age 15. A director then showed Bardot’s fashion photos to a screenwriter and another director, who asked her to audition for an upcoming role. Brigitte was cast in the film, but unfortunately it was cancelled. She had tried acting before and loved it. She began her acting career as early as 1952, and was world-famous after appearing in God Created Woman in 1957.
Brigitte’s life hasn’t been easy. She has been through several failed marriages, battled depression, and survived breast cancer. All this proves that she’s more than just a pretty girl: She also has incredible inner strength. She is enjoying her life to the fullest.
