She used to be the untouchable icon of European sexuality. In the 1950s and 60s she was beyond fantasy for filmgoers – a woman trumping American starlets in looks and ability. Now, though, she’s focusing mostly on hating Muslims and being fugly. She made remarks in her foundation's quarterly, racist journal. Well, at least it was racist this time.
And this wasn’t even the first time she hated on Muslims. Jeez, Brige. Just check out her controversy section in wiki.
