Jane Birkin + Brigitte Bardot
Jane on Brigitte:
"Every inch of her was perfect. There was not one fault in the girl. I remember that during that love scene between the two of us, I tried to twist my naked legs around hers so that people might mistake them for hers."
"She still writes to me, because I give money to her dogs’ association. The postcards I get from her are always rather sad. I think she has difficulty walking. Although she has a dubious private life with rather doubtful characters, she’s made people have a sort of moral conscience. People consider her as being animal-mad because human beings have been so disappointing to her, which I think is true. She was so beautiful that people were envious of her. In a scene when we came out of a car, she’d been crying, so she had a slightly red face and people were delighted. They were cruel to her because she was dangerous and could have nicked their husbands."
