With her quick wit, girl-next-door vibe, and a last name that screams "Hollywood legacy," big-screen glory seemed a certainty for Bridget Fonda. And from the late '80s into the '90s, Fonda's career was the very definition of glorious. Then... she disappeared. Since 2002, Fonda hasn't appeared in a single film or TV show. If you're among the many fans wondering where she went, don't worry: we dug up a few answers for you. Too much, too soon Fonda's family name all but demanded a big-screen breakthrough, and Fonda definitely made the most of her time in the spotlight. Between 1987 and 1998, she consistently made three to four films a year—more than 30 in all. With that sort of workload it's easy to imagine that Fonda simply burned out. And who could blame her? Fonda was basically working nonstop for 11 straight years. We can only imagine the effect it had on her. The 'it girl' problem With roles in the hit thriller Single White Female and the acclaimed Cameron Crowe dramedy Singles—plus cameos in films like 1992's Army Of Darkness—it looked like there was no genre she couldn't handle. And she could draw solid box-office numbers too—Single White Female alone made nearly $50 million upon release. With that sort of success, Fonda's "it girl" status was unavoidable. While Fonda continued to work steadily in the years that followed, her momentum slowed during the late '90s—and as many other stars can attest, once your career cools off, it's hard to heat it up again. Monkeybone The crowded schedule Fonda maintained at her peak may actually help explain some of her more questionable career choices—none of which proved quite as questionable as 2001's Monkeybone. Pitched as a madcap action/animation/comedy mashup, it probably sounded like a risk worth taking for Fonda; unfortunately, it proved to be three things that Hollywood just won't tolerate—expensive, difficult to market, and almost unwatchable. Monkeybone tanked at the box office, and although she wasn't blamed for its poor performance, it remains one of Fonda's last few big-screen efforts to date. TV didn't pan out Television producers pursued Fonda for years—in fact, she actually turned down the lead role on Ally McBeal in 1999 so she could focus on making movies. It's tough to second guess that decision—Ally McBeal ended quietly after five seasons, and didn't exactly set its lead, Calista Flockhart, on the path to film stardom. But Fonda's own television efforts didn't really pan out, either. She took a supporting role in the Chris Isaak Show, and appeared in the TV movies No Ordinary Baby and Snow Queen. The latter release premiered in December of 2002, and Fonda hasn't appeared in a film or television project since. Family shadow We can't imagine it was an easy decision for Fonda to walk away from acting. After all, when your father is legendary actor Peter Fonda, your grandfather is legendary actor Henry Fonda, and your aunt is legendary actor Jane Fonda, a career in Hollywood might seem like more of a birthright than a career choice. But legacies also come with expectations, and when your family has as many heavy hitters as the Fonda clan, those expectations are essentially tripled. Though Bridget undeniably had a solid career, it was hardly the stuff of legend—and sometimes it's tough to break out of your family shadow. Married life The vagaries of Hollywood aside, Fonda had another personal reason to stop looking for roles: her relationship with composer Danny Elfman. Shortly after a 2003 car crash left Fonda with a fractured vertebrae, the actress announced her engagement to the former Oingo Boingo frontman. After they married in 2003, she spent time helping him raise his children from a previous relationship, and the pair welcomed their own son, Oliver, in 2005. Fonda has maintained a low profile since. Never too late Who's to say that Bridget Fonda won't find her way back to the red carpet one day? Hollywood loves a good comeback, and for proof, look no further than Bridget's own father. Peter Fonda spent the better part of the '70s, '80s, and '90s toiling away in B-movies. He didn't break back into Hollywood's good graces until his Oscar-nominated turn in 1997's Ulee's Gold. In this new golden age of television, we'd like to think Bridget's road back would be a little easier, and a challenging supporting role on a great Netflix or Amazon series might be just the ticket to get her back in front of cameras.

Early life

Fonda was born in Los Angeles, California,[citation needed] to a family of actors, including her grandfather Henry Fonda, father Peter Fonda (1940–2019), and her aunt Jane Fonda. Her mother, Susan Jane Brewer, is an artist.[1] She is named after actress Margaret Sullavan's daughter Bridget Hayward. Her maternal grandmother, Mary Sweet, married businessman Noah Dietrich.[2]

Bridget's parents divorced and Peter married Portia Rebecca Crockett (former wife of author Thomas McGuane). Peter and Portia raised Bridget, her brother Justin, and older stepbrother Thomas McGuane Jr. in the Coldwater Canyon section of Los Angeles, as well as in Paradise Valley, south of Livingston, Montana.[3] Fonda attended Westlake School for Girls in Los Angeles.


Fonda became involved with the theatre when she was cast in a school production of Harvey. She studied method acting at the Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute as part of New York University's Tisch School of the Arts acting program[4] and graduated from NYU in 1986.[5]

Earlier, she had made her film debut at the age of five in the 1969 movie Easy Rider as a child in the hippie commune that Peter Fonda and Dennis Hopper visit on their trek across the United States.[6] Her second (non-speaking) part was in the 1982 comedy Partners. In 1988, she got her first substantial film role in Scandal. That same year she appeared in You Can't Hurry Love and Shag.

Her breakthrough role was as a journalist in The Godfather Part III. After gaining additional work experience in a few theater productions she was cast in the lead in Barbet Schroeder's Single White Female, followed by a role in Cameron Crowe's ensemble comedy Singles (both 1992).

She starred in 1993's Point of No Return, an American remake of the 1990 French film Nikita. A review in The New Yorker cited her "provocative, taunting assertiveness". In 1997, she was on the same flight as Quentin Tarantino when he offered her the part of Melanie in Jackie Brown, which she undertook. She starred in Lake Placid (1999). She was also reportedly offered the lead, eponymous role in the television series Ally McBeal but turned it down to concentrate on her film career.[7]

She starred with Jet Li in the action thriller film Kiss of the Dragon in 2001, played the title role in the TV movie Snow Queen in 2002 and has not appeared in films since then.[8]

Personal life

In 1986, Bridget met Eric Stoltz and, in 1990, they began dating. The relationship ended after eight years.[9]

On February 27, 2003, she suffered a serious car crash in Los Angeles that caused a fracture in her vertebra.[10] In March of the same year, she became engaged to soundtrack composer and former Oingo Boingo frontman Danny Elfman, and they married in November.[11] They have a son named Oliver.[12]
