Porn Star Bio: Brigitte Lahaie

Born as Brigitte Van Meerhaegue, her father was a banker and mother an accountant. She grew up with three siblings—two brothers and a sister—and the family moved a lot during her childhood as her father worked in several parts of the country: Alsace, Lorraine and finally Lyon. In 1975 she and her sister moved to Paris, and Brigitte took a job in the shoe store. The year after she answered an ad looking for women with large breasts, and thus began her adult entertainment career.

Moving to the Adult Stage and Top Rated Porn Movies

The year Brigitte answered that ad was the same year hardcore pornography was legalized in France. With XXX performers in high demand, she got her first role in Gerard Kikoïne’s Parties Fines (released in the US as Education of the Baroness by Caballero), playing the featured Baroness Solange—the neglected wife of the perverted baron who finds her revenge against him in a very special way. Launching her career in what became the "Golden Age of French Erotica," she was quickly cast for Vibrations Sexuelles; Brigitte’s first to be directed by Jean Rollin, who would later become her favorite director. As such, she performed in multiple titles for him, including: The Grapes of Death, Fascination, The Night of the Hunted, The Escapees, and La Fiancée de Dracula; all of them R-rated. However, she worked for several other adult industry directors: Gerard Kikoïne (five movies, the most popular being Enquêtes and RX for Sex), Claude Mulot (Suprêmes Jouissances), Francis Leroi (Je suis à Prendre), and Claude Bernard-Aubert (Auto-Stoppeuses en Chaleur, otherwise known as Two for One as the US release). Overall, she is credited with over 50 porn titles between 1976 and 1980—with Claude Mulot’s Les Petites Ecolières being her last movie befor moving to mainstream productions.

Transitioning from the Adult Industry

The transition to "traditional" cinema was not done overnight; in fact it had begun in 1978 thanks to Jean Rollin’s The Grapes of Death. It was Brigitte's first taste of the non-pornographic film, and the result was quite successful--despite having a cold during its filming--but Fascination helped her realize her potential as a mainstream actress. Over the next few years, she appeared in much lighter erotic productions until the mid-80s (after which Brigitte alternated performing in erotic films and small mainstream roles, like Antony and Julie and Green Brigades). Twenty years after her adult debut, Brigitte beganto make regular appearances in mainstream movies (Henry & June (1990) and Calvaire (2004)), as well as appearing in TV shows dealing with erotic issues. At the end of her career, she became familiar to the general populace through the French radio show, “Les Grosses Têtes,” broadcasted on RTL.
