Iconic French film actress Brigitte Bardot is furious over plans to produce a film based on her life. Kyle Newman, producer and director of the project, has tapped his wife, actress Jaime King, for the unauthorized role. "A film about my life? But I'm not dead!" Bardot commented on French radio today, UK's Guardian reports. "They wouldn't dare do it without talking to me. If they do, sparks will fly."

In recent years, Bardot, who left her film career in 1973 to become an animal rights activist, has been most famous for her outspoken and polarizing statements on topics ranging from French immigration and race-mixing to homosexuality and Islam. She has been fined five times for "inciting racial hatred." It is unclear whether the proposed film would include this controversial period in her life.
