Bardot said she "has nearly no contact these days with the entertainment industry" other than phone calls from her old friends like veteran actor Alain Delon.

"Me, I was never the victim of sexual harassment and I found it charming when I was told that I was handsome or I had a nice little backside", Bardot continued.

In the interview, Bardot asserts that for actresses specifically, "not women in general", "the vast majority of cases" are "hypocritical, ridiculous, without interest". Then, in order to be talked about, they will say they have been harassed.

The 74-year-old went on to apologise to victims of sexual assault, saying there was "nothing good" about harassment.

Brigitte Bardot is the latest legendary French actress to denounce the #MeToo movement as the campaign against systemic sexual harassment continues to take effect in Hollywood.

Brigitte Bardot has attacked the #metoo movement by suggesting that actresses use their sexuality when trying to land film roles.
