The 83-year-old continued, "I was never the victim of sexual harassment".

Bardot, who is known as an animal rights activist these days but inspired the term "sex kitten" as a young actress, said she never had been a victim of sexual harassment and found it "charming to be told that I was lovely or that I had a nice little ass". "The vast majority are being hypocritical and ridiculous". "This kind of compliment is nice", she said.

However, the actress not only chose to distance herself from the open letter but also apologized after one of the women who signed blamed females for getting raped.
