Brigitte Bardot says #MeToo movement is

"And I found it charming when men told me that I was attractive or I had a nice little backside", Bardot said. "And I found it charming when men told me that I was handsome or I had a nice little backside".

Bardot also aligned with the view that women are responsible, saying actresses "come on" to producers to get roles, "and then, so they'll be talked about, they say they were harassed".

'The vast majority are being hypocritical and ridiculous, ' Bardot told Paris Match (translated by Paris 24).

Bardot becomes the second high-profile French film industry figure to come out in recent days against the campaign against harassment in the industry, which in France has coalesced around #BalanceTonPorc ("Squeal on Your Pig"), the French equivalent to #MeToo.

Bardot said she "has nearly no contact these days with the entertainment industry" other than phone calls from her old friends like veteran actor Alain Delon.

Muguruza stunned as upsets continue at Australian Open
A backhand victor down the line brought her to set point and when Muguruza missed a return, Hsieh had the first set in hand. It is her most successful Grand Slam, but after an injury-marred lead-up the ninth seed's campaign is over.

She added: "In reality, rather than helping them, it hurts them".

"Rape is a crime, but trying to seduce someone, even persistently or back-handedly, is not", the letter read.

Others called upon the actress, known as an avid advocate of animal rights, to show a little more respect and kindness for victims of sexual harassment.

But while Deneuve maintains that "nothing in the letter" warranted the subsequent backlash, she has apologised to victims of sexual assault who may have been offended by it.

'It is to them and them alone that I offer my apologies'.
