Now, for the first time, a writer has been granted access to the woman behind the myth to tell her amazing story. Photos. For more than forty years Brigitte Bardot has been an international phenomenon. Often acclaimed as one of the most beautiful women on earth, her legendary on-screen audacity and her off-screen private life both shocked and intrigued post World War II generations. Bardot's fame, which began with And God Created Woman, carried her to mythical status and cinematic stardom. Mobbed, stalked, and hounded for all of her adult life, while being pursued by lovesick fans and the media, Bardot was tormented in her attempt to separate her private life from her public life. After several attempted suicides, she retired from films and delved into the animal rights cause with zeal and devotion. Now, for the first time, a writer has been granted access to the woman behind the myth. Jeffrey Robinson spoke with Brigitte Bardot's former husbands, former lovers, old friends, her current husband, and with Bardot herself. He lifts the veil that for years has obscured Bardot from the eyes of the public, giving the reader an intimate view of a remarkable woman. ( )
