Brigitte Bardot is so sexy people think she's sexier than she is?

Roger Vadim, director of And God Created Woman, claims that at a Paris screening censors demanded that he remove a scene in which his then wife appears bottomless in from of a teenage boy. Such a scene doesn't exist, of course. Quote Vadim: “People often thought she was naked when she wasn’t." It's reasonable to assume that Vadim was trying to use Bardot for her beauty, and more reasonable to assume that Bardot was using her beauty to get men to make her famous. Whatever works? It's an ok film. She's an ok actress. He's an ok director. We still have a fun episode on this week's Lost in Criterion.
