Sultry French actress.
The archetypal sex kitten, Bardot was the first foreign-language star ever to attain a level of international success comparable to America's most popular homegrown talents. Though she made her film debut in 1952 it wasn’t until 1956 that Bardot enjoyed her first starring role, in La Lumiere d'en Face. By 1957 she had become France's top sex symbol and she finally hit the jackpot that year when her husband Roger Vadim starred her in the erotic Et Dieu Crea la Femme (And God Created Woman). The film made Bardot an international star, earning over four million dollars in the U.S. alone.
