Over the years I have written four letters to The New York Times.Two of them were published which shows that my view points were taken into consideration.

She was considered once one of the sexiest beauties in the world.She drove men absolutely insane in person and in dreams.It was said that one of her former lovers would shower her estate with thousands of roses thrown from a helicopter during her birthday.Who could forget that great shot of her, lying nude across the whole cinemascope screen? " God created woman...But Roger Vadim created her", unself –concious and casually sensual...the first "sex-kitten". She is Brigitte Bardot widely known just by her initials BB.
In spite of her fame and glory, she tried to live a simple and normal life separating the Goddess of the screen from the simple her. She stopped making movies while she was still very famous and beautiful, to devote herself to the causes she believed in like the rights of animals. She auctioned her movie memorabilia and gave the whole proceeds ( millions) to her Animal Foundation.She never looked for artificial means to prolong her beauty. She was quoted as saying " When I was young and pretty I gave myself to men. Now I give to the animals what is left of me." However BB never stopped being beautiful.She didn’t escape the ravages of the time but she continues to be as beautiful as ever...in her soul.
