Brigitte’s first love
Unknown to most, Brigitte’s first love was ballet. She wanted to become a ballerina early in her life and attended ballet school, beginning in 1947. She went there for 3 years, but soon transitioned into a career as a model. In 1949 she modeled in a fashion show and starred in the fashion magazine Jardin des Modes.
Bardot was then noticed by a young film director at the age of 15. The director showed her fashion pictures to another director and screenwriter, leading to them asking her to audition for a role in an upcoming film. Brigitte got the role, but the film was unfortunately cancelled. However, she had now had a taste of acting and absolutely loved it. She started her acting career in 1952 and became world-famous in 1957, after starring in And God Created Woman.
