Bardot Might Run for President of France


Former sex kitten turned activist Brigitte Bardot, who has written derogatory comments about gay people in the past, is considering running for president of France after an offer from the Independent Ecology Alliance, reports CBC news.

Bardot, 76, wrote a letter to French president Nicolas Sarkozy that read, "Because you do the opposite of what you say, I am studying a proposition from the Independent Ecology Alliance to be their presidential candidate in 2012." Bardot's statement was a reaction to Sarkozy's reneging on a promise to outlaw Muslim animal slaughter practices that she considers inhumane.

In her book Un Cri Dans le Silence (A Cry in the Silence), which was published in 2003, Bardot wrote in reference to gay people, "They jiggle their bottoms, put their little fingers in the air and with their little castrato voices moan about what those ghastly heteros put them through." She has since denied any accusations of homophobia.
