Brigitte Lahaie (born Brigade Van Meerhaegue on October 12, 1955, in Tourcoing, France) is a notable French porn actress who began her career at the age of 20 performing in pornographic films from 1976 through 1980.

In 1980, having become a kind of idol of French adult film industry's golden age, she decided to put an end to her hardcore career and appeared in more "traditional" movies and "big" productions, such as I comme Icare (Henri Verneuil, 1980) in which she played a prostitute, and in Pour la peau d'un flic (Alain Delon, 1981) in which she played a nurse. However, she also made some softcore and Nazi exploitation "video nasties" during this time.

At the end of her acting career, she became famous in the general public by participating in the famous French radio show, Les Grosses Têtes, which is broadcast on RTL.

She also tried to become a singer, with the single Caresse tendresse, without any commercial success or even professional appreciation.

She is now the star animator on RMC Info of the daily show « Lahaie, l'Amour et Vous », from 14:00 to 16:00, which is mostly dealing with essential topics of human and sexual relations.

She currently is also a hostess on a French X-rated TV cable-channel talk show.

Brigitte Lahaie is also known for an unwavering interest in equestrianism, born when she saw the movie White Mane while a teenager.
