Bardot gets her claws into Sophia Loren

30 September 2009

Paris and Nicole. Lindsay and Hilary. Keisha and Amelle. We all love a bit of a celeb scrap, but it seems no one knows better how to get their claws out than the old movie stars.

As she turns 75 today, blonde bombshell Brigitte Bardot has taken another swipe at her old rival, Sophia Loren, about wearing animal fur. BB told AFP (a French press agency) that Sophia giving up wearing fur would be the 'best gift she could offer me'.

And this isn’t the first time the French screen goddess has taken a dig at the fashion choices of the sultry Italian. In the ‘90s she accused Sophia of 'wearing a cemetery on her back' after she modelled in a series of fur ads.

Ms Loren, who has always taken a classy ‘No comment’ line with BB, is also celebrating turning 75 this week as she films her new movie, La mia casa e piena di specchi (My House Is Full Of Mirrors, for those of us not in la lingua loop).

The two stars fought for the top of the sex symbol charts in the ’50s, before Sophia headed for Hollywood and Brigitte abandoned her stardom to become a passionate animal rights activist.

And she sure doesn’t hold back in fighting for the cause. When Sarah Palin called herself a 'pitbull in lipstick' during the US race for the White House, BB got her claws out again, calling Palin 'a disgrace to women' and saying 'no pitbull is as dangerous as you are'. Meeeeeeow!
