Former actress and French sex-kitten, Brigitte Bardot has recently become an all-out hellcat against France and is flaming mad about her country’s treatment of minks. Bardot, 71, is upset France deflected and attacked a recent Swedish proposal that would have implemented stricter measures for raising minks on Swedish fur farms. As a result, she contacted the French Finance Ministry to criticize France for this offense and threatened to depart the country for Sweden.
Admitting that her bombshell image and worldwide fame has always been linked to France, Bardot wrote a letter to Swedish Prime Minister Goran Persson stating, “the intervention of my government makes me ashamed, ashamed to be French. To the contrary of (film legend Greta) Garbo, who left Sweden to finish her days in the United States, perhaps I will leave France to finish my days in Sweden, since today, I feel much closer to Swedish sensitivity than to the French insensitivity.” You tell ’em, Brigitte!
Bardot encouraged Sweden to continue its efforts and advance their proposal to improve conditions for the “millions of unfortunate minks raised for their fur.”
After life in the spotlight, Bardot became an assertive spokesperson for animal rights and started the Foundation Brigitte Bardot. She is dedicated solely to her cause. Bardot’s work in the realm of animal liberation is arguably far greater than any film she could have made.
