“Happy New Year to everyone who loves me and whom I love.” Brigitte Bardot sent her wishes to her fans for the new year 2024. The message, written by hand on a card, was posted on the actress’ Twitter account on Wednesday January 3.

“Happy New Year to you who gave me so much,” wrote the icon of French cinema. “Thank you for your letters, your cards, your gifts, your flowers, your simple and true little words and your immense generosity for my foundation,” she continued. From the bottom of my heart, a big thank you for this moving support.” “To each of you, I purr a tender kiss and I whisper an I love you,” concluded Brigitte Bardot in her greeting card.

The actress, world star of cinema from the 1950s to 1970s, has been very committed to the defense of animal rights since 1962. After 45 roles in the cinema, the actress put an end to her career in 1973 to devote herself fully to her association, the Brigitte-Bardot Foundation. The latter works “for the protection of wild and domestic animals, in France and throughout the world”.

The one also called BB, has now shared her life since 1992 with the former industrial manager Bernard d’Ormale. The star, who lives in Saint-Tropez, will celebrate her 90th birthday in September.
