Oh yeah, remember us saying she wrote politically-flavored non-fiction? [[BrokenBase The less said about it]], [[FlameBait the better]].

[[folder:List of films]]!!Selected filmography:



* ''La Vérité''[[note]]''The Truth''[[/note]] (1960) - Only movie of hers nominated for an Oscar (Best Foreign Film). Regarded by fans as one of her best performances, with a little help from EnforcedMethodActing consisting of the director psychologically abusing her during shooting.

Bardot was ''very'' popular in her time, and still is an icon comparable to Creator/MarilynMonroe. She was one of few European actresses to receive attention in America, though her poor English skills limited her contact with Hollywood, not that she was particularly interested in working there. Bardot is also one of the few people [[OnlyKnownByInitials whose initials were once enough to identify her]]. If you said ''B.B.'' in the Fifties and Sixties everyone knew you were referring to her. She retired from acting in 1973 and chose to use her fame to promote animal rights, often bordering to far-right politics.

As well-known as she is, how many films of hers can you actually name? Yeah, though she's popular, it's generally felt the majority of her movies [[SoOkayItsAverage leave something to be desired in terms of artistic quality or how well they've aged]]. You'll be hard-pressed to find any of her films in a must-watch list (except for ''Film/{{Contempt}}'' and that's it). That said, lists aren't everything and Administrivia/ThereIsNoSuchThingAsNotability.
