Since the 1970s, Bardot has dedicated her life to the welfare and protection of animals, becoming a symbol of compassion and personal involvement. In this book, the author makes the case that far from being just a pretty face or a spotlight grabber, Bardot is a fine actress and a compassionate and intelligent individual. Chapters acquaint readers with her childhood in Paris and her rebellious coming of age in a Catholic bourgeois family, who disapproved when she appeared on the cover of Elle magazine and was offered a screen test. Her years in film and her tumultuous personal life, including suicide attempts, are recounted along with the beginnings of her interest in animal protection. The final chapters detail her efforts in the realm of worldwide animal welfare activism, including an international foundation.
