Brigitte BardotBrigitte Bardot has admitted that she doesn’t eat much because lunch is “wastes time” - but when she does eat, she insists on the best.

“At breakfast I have a croissant and a slice of toast – shared with my six dogs. I don’t eat much.”

“I don’t have lunch, I just nibble on a bit of chocolate or some fruit.”

“Lunch makes me waste time. People stuff themselves too much.”

“I only get one meal a day, so it has to be delicious. I have my own vegetable garden and I am a marvellously good cook.”

The French star is in her 70s and has become an ardent animal rights activist since giving up acting in the 1970s.
