Other Relationship Information about Brigitte Bardot and John Gilmore:
Both Gilmore and Bardot have had numerous affairs with various celebrities, both have been married, divorced, etc. It was mentioned by the French writer, Francois Sagan, that Bardot and Gilmore met again in Paris in 1985. Both knew Sagan who said she was present with the pair. This has not been confirmed.
Gilmore was quoted in Paris Match about Brigitte, to the effect that while he felt very close to her and cared for her, he found it difficult to arrive at any sort of deep, intellectual communication with her. He has also said Brigitte was "one of the very special humans I've been close to..." Brigitte has said the relationship was like two ships crossing wakes in the middle of the night.
Brigitte was pregnant at the time she met Gilmore. That did not stop them from getting quickly involved, but for a short-lived period of time. Brigitte wanted to know if James Dean (an ex-pal of Gilmore's) were pregnant (as in Brigitte's position), would he have "gotten rid" of the baby and concentrated on his career, or would he have had the baby and watched his career suffer?
