MOSCOW, September 25 (RIA Novosti) - Famous actress Brigitte Bardot in her interview to France 2 channel said that she admires French politician, leader of the Front National party, Marine Le Pen.
Bardot said that she spoke with Le Pen over the phone and liked her political views very much.
"She has the vision of France that I wish would appear more often again, the modern society does not progress in a right direction," Bardot stated.
Marine Le Pen is a leader of far-right Front National party, which won over traditional parties in the recent European Parliament elections, taking 24 of 74 seats allotted to France.
She is currently seen as one of the favorites in the upcoming presidential elections, which will be held in France in 2017. Experts argue that her major opponents will most likely be French President Francois Hollande and ex-leader of the Fifth Republic, Nicolas Sarkozy, who only recently announced his return to politics.
Earlier, Marine Le Pen said she respects Russian President Vladimir Putin as he does not allow other countries to impose their decisions on him, and called Putin her soul mate who is protecting the values of the traditional society and Christian heritage.
