Brigitte Bardot calls #MeToo stars 'hypocritical'

Brigitte Bardot in 2007

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.

YouTube Makes It Harder For Creators To Monetise
The area most impacted by YouTube's policy change is monetization or rather, the eligibility conditions. Ads will only run on Google Preferred videos verified to be compliant with YouTube's ad criteria .

The former actress has been fined five times for inciting racial hatred with derogatory comments about Islam and Muslims.

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

Bardot became an worldwide sex symbol after her starring role in 1956's "And God Made Woman". "Men have been punished summarily, forced out of their jobs when all they did was touch someone's knee of try to steal a kiss".

But while Deneuve maintains that "nothing in the letter" warranted the subsequent backlash, she has apologised to victims of sexual assault who may have been offended by it.
