Taking Her First Film
Bardot was chosen as the cover girl for Elle magazine in 1952. She subsequently got a part in the comedy film Le Trou Normand (English title: Crazy for Love), with a minor appearance as a cousin of the leading man.
In order to assist the family finances, she began selling items on eBay. She made around $5,000 this way. This was merely the start for the young actress; she would soon be flooded with numerous minor or major parts over the next several years.
