Acting talent definitely runs in the blood of the Fonda family. From Henry Fonda, his children, actor Peter Fonda and actress Jane Fonda, to his granddaughter Bridget, this name has always been sort of a synonym for the movie industry.
Bridget, who retired from acting, has captivated the attention of many with her incredible looks and skills.
Being born in the famous family of distinguished actors, her career was somehow determined from the moment she was welcomed into the world. Her passion for acting and the excitement she felt when she was cast for her school’s, Westlake School for Girls in Los Angeles, production of Harvey was more than enough for young Bridget to be absolutely sure that embarking on a career as an actress was her calling.
Bridget’s first noteworthy role was that of Mandy Rice-Davies in Scandal for which she was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actress.
Other prominent films that shaped her career are The Godfather Part III, where she played a journalist, Single White Female, Singles, Point of No Return, an American remake of the 1990 French film Nikita, and more. Her last movie was Snow Queen, which aired in 2002, after which she hasn’t appeared on screen.
During her acting career, Bridget turned down many roles in TV series because she wanted to focus on movies. One such role that she said no to was that of Ally McBeal in the same name series, which was later offered to actress Calista Flockhart. Ally McBeal was a huge hit and was loved worldwide, so we aren’t sure whether Bridget regretted not taking that role.
A year before she decided she had it enough of filming, gorgeous Bridget appeared as a Christmas lingerie model for H&M. She once said, ”Nudity is who people are at the most interesting point of the evening, when they take off their protective layer, when no one is watching.”
Bridget didn’t see herself as a type of person who would marry one day, but in 2003, she tied the knot with composer Danny Elfman. The two have a son, Oliver, and are still happily married.
As she wanted to focus on her family, Bridget left the spotlight some 20 years ago and not much has been heard of her during those years.
Recent photos of the actress show her drastic change in physical appearance. Many argue that she doesn’t resemble her old self.
In a dramatic departure from her skinny figure, Bridget was spotted wearing a pair of dark trousers and a black and white striped V-neck T-shirt. She was photographed earlier this year wearing the same top and similar pants while running errands with her husband and son.
In 2020, the couple sold their two adjacent mansions in Los Angeles for a combined price tag of $14.6 million and moved to a ranch instead. They were planning on staying there during the lockdown and until the end of the pandemic, but they eventually made the ranch their permanent home.
Without any make up and her grey hair in a ponytail, Bridget Fonda surprised her fans with her looks. She has gained a significant amount of weight and is far from the woman she used to look like.
