It seems hard to imagine what a beloved goddess Brigitte Bardot  was to the French. This Marseille fisherman looks like he loves her still.
Here are two well-known quotes from this actress turned animal-rights activist:
- Fame has brought me so much unhappiness.
- I gave my youth and my beauty to men. I am going to give my wisdom and experience to animals.
And now that she is older, that is exactly what she is doing.
