Brigitte Bardot warns against biopic

August 12th, 2010

Brigitte Bardot has warned Hollywood against creating a biopic of her life.

The French actress believes no actresses should be allowed to play her while she is still alive, despite plans by director Kyle Newman to cast his wife Jaime King to portray her.

Speaking on French radio, the 75 year old said: "I am not OK with a film about me when I have not been told about it and when I have not given my agreement to the person playing the role."

In a similar interview, Brigitte said: "A film about my life? But I'm, not dead! They wouldn't dare do it without talking to me. If they do sparks will fly."

Newman - who has worked on a number of films including 'Drone' and 'Fanboys' - is believed to have been planning to start work on a project, entitled 'Bardot', for several months.

Brigitte retired from acting in 1973 just before her 40th birthday.
