Roger Vadim Net Worth
Roger Vadim was born in Paris, France (26 January 1928). The son of Russian-French parents, Vadim first aspired to be an actor, studying acting alongside Marcel Marceau in a Paris drama school in the mid-1940s. From 1947 to 1956, Vadim worked as a screenwriter and assistant director on several films; he also worked as a reporter for Paris Match for two years during this time and drove racecars for Ferrari Motor Cars all over Europe. In 1949, at the age of 21, Vadim met Brigitte Bardot, then a 15-year-old schoolgirl. Vadim and Bardot were married three years later.
Vadim’s directorial debut, the sensational Et Dieu créa la femme (1956, “And God Created Woman”), starred the sultry blond Bardot as a young married woman in search of sexual freedom who falls in love with her husband’s brother.
Many of Vadim’s subsequent films also explored erotic themes, but he gained an equal measure of attention for his romantic life and his relationships with his leading ladies, some of the world’s most well known beauties. Vadim’s marriage to Bardot ended in 1957.
Soon after his divorce from Bardot, Vadim remarried the actress Annette Stroyberg, with whom he had a daughter, Nathalie. Divorced from Stroyberg in the early 1960s, Vadim began living with another famous French actress, Catherine Deneuve.
In 1967, Vadim married his third wife, the American actress (and member of Hollywood royalty) Jane Fonda. She played the title role in his avant-garde science fiction adventure, Barbarella (1968), and they had a daughter, Vanessa. Vadim and Fonda divorced in 1973.
Vadim made his first American feature, Pretty Maids All in a Row, starring Rock Hudson and Angie Dickinson, in 1971.
Vadim married Catherine Schneider in 1975; they had one daughter, Vania, before divorcing in the late 1970s. His fifth wife was the actress Marie-Christine Barrault, whom he married in 1990.
Roger Vadim died of cancer on February 11, 2000, at the age of 72.
