Roger Vadim (January 26, 1928 - February 10, 2000), was a journalist, author, actor, screenwriter, director, and producer who launched Brigitte Bardot's career in the film And God Created Woman. The scene of Bardot dancing barefoot on a table remains one of the most erotic scenes in French cinema.
Born Roger Vladmir Plemiannikov in Paris, France. His White Russian father, Igor Plemiannikov, had immigrated from the Ukraine, become a naturalized French citizen, and a vice consul of France to Egypt.
As well as his movie achievements, Roger Vadim was celebrated for his romances with some of the world's most beautiful women, two of whom were Brigitte Bardot and Jane Fonda. He also lived with Catherine Deneuve with whom he had a child prior to his marriage to Fonda. In addition to his theater and movie work, he wrote several books including his autobiography, D'Une Etoile a l'Autre (From One Star to the Next).
He died at 72 years of age of cancer and is buried in the St. Tropez Cemetery, Saint Tropez, France.
