French screen siren Brigitte Bardot celebrated her 80th birthday in private on Sunday at her French Riviera home, shunning the spotlight and turning attention back to her beloved animal rights work.Rather than gifts, the ex-movie star turned animal rights defender went on Europe 1 radio and asked her fans "to go to the nearest animal shelter and adopt a little cat or dog, or sponsor it" and also "to eat less meat".Still, outside her house in Saint Tropez, admirers left some 250 bouquets of flowers, according to Servat.Inside, Bardot spent her low-key birthday with some members of her animal rights foundation, a few friends and her husband Bernard d'Ormale.The woman who left men weak in the knees in the 1950s and 60s did make a very brief public appearance on Friday for photos at the port of Saint Tropez before the "Brigitte Bardot".
