“I only live in the world of animal protection. I speak only of that. I think only of that. I am obsessed.”
I feel that it’s necessary to mention that since retiring from the entertainment industry in 1973, Miss Bardot has been a tireless advocate for animal rights, which led her to establish the Brigitte Bardot Foundation for the Welfare and Protection of Animals, in 1986. Though she never had too high an opinion of film, or her acting skills (of which she said “I started out as a lousy actress and have remained one”), her iconic celebrity status afforded her the ability to transition and make a substantial impact in what is clearly her passion and life’s mission, animal rights activism.
