Brigitte Bardot: ‘I know what it feels like to be hunted’

DALYA ALBERGE: ‘She was the ultimate screen goddess, who gave it all up, dedicating herself to protecting animals for the past 46 years. Now, in a forthcoming memoir, Brigitte Bardot laments the destructive nature of celebrity… “I know what it feels like to be hunted,” she says… “This worship of celebrity … suffocated me”… Her book, Tears of Battle: An Animal Rights Memoir, is a collaboration with Anne-Cécile Huprelle and Grace McQuillan and will be published in April by Skyhorse Publishing. She dedicates it to animals and writes of her despair in human beings, whom she says inflict all sorts of evils and sufferings upon them for their own needs, leisure and pleasure… She said: “Humans have hurt me. Deeply. And it is only with animals, with nature, that I found peace”…
