Brigitte Bardot: ’60s Pop Culture Icon

Brigitte Bardot nude

A poster of Brigitte Bardot nude was a common sight in a boy’s bedroom during the ’50s, ’60s, or ’70s.

But it wasn’t just adolescent boys that idolized the French actress and sex symbol, a young Paul McCartney and John Lennon were apparently big admirers, with Lennon himself even having a giant poster of Brigitte Bardot nude pinned on the ceiling of his bedroom when he was young.

Bob Dylan was also a fan, going as far as dedicating his first-ever song to Bardot according to the liner notes in his debut album.

Bardot was losing interest in acting and in 1973 her final two films were released, including Roger Vadim’s Don Juan ou Si Don Juan était une femme with Jane Birkin.

Even the beautiful Birkin was jealous over Bardot, she remembers. “I wanted to see every portion of her [Bardot’s] body to see if she was as beautiful as I thought she was, and she is. Checked from head to toe by me. There’s not one fault in the woman.”

Bardot has become more and more beautiful with age. She believes that “every age can be enchanting, provided you live within it.”

One of her most well-known lovers, Serge Gainsbourg, wrote the song “Initials BB” in 1968 after their breakup. He sings, “All the way to her thighs, she is booted, and it’s like a chalice to her beauty; she wears nothing other than some essence of Guerlain in her hair.”

Brigitte Bardot told Vogue Hommes International, “I was afraid of not living up to what people expected me to be. Today, at my age, I don’t give a damn. I no longer want to seduce, not anything, not anyone.”
