"Serge originally wrote "Je t’aime… moi non plus" for Brigitte Bardot. I knew he wasn’t over her, but I wasn’t over John either. I would watch John with our daughter, Kate, and I would cry. Serge would get very jealous and pound away on the piano. Bardot's beauty was shocking. Even with no make-up her eyes really were that beautiful and her mouth really was that big. I think people hated her because she was so beautiful, and they would spit in the street when they saw her. I think it’s probably one of the reasons she went a little cuckoo and ended up with a fascist. That made her very difficult to stick up for. But Serge always did; however, he said she had terrible taste in men— apart from him of course." —Jane Birkin
