French actress Brigitte Lahaie got her start doing nude layouts for magazines
in the mid 70s and quickly moved into porno films. The likes of Jean Rollin and Jess Franco
would eventually use the sexpot in their slightly more legitimate features.
Then in 1980, at the height of her popularity, she would quit the adult industry to focus
solely on her acting career. She is still actively working and hosts a popular French radio show.
Brigitte turns 56 today.
