Actress Laetitia Casta was shocked when she asked Brigitte Bardot for advice on how to play the screen icon in upcoming Serge Gainsbourg biopic A Heroic Life - because she told her to pretend she wanted to make love with everyone.
Bardot agreed to chat with Casta as the young star prepared to portray her in the film, but the actress was not expecting the veteran to be so candid.
She tells The Hollywood Reporter, "She said, 'When you walk into a room, put your head up and look like you want to f**k everybody. You are the most beautiful woman in the world, enjoy it, it isn't gonna last.'"
Casta reveals she has spoken to Bardot since making the film and she doesn't think the French icon was impressed.
She adds, "Bardot congratulated me but I think she hated the movie."
