Bridget Fonda Biography

Bridget Jane Fonda is a retired actress born on 27 January 1964, in Los Angeles, California USA, to mother Susan Brewer, an artist, and father Peter Fonda, an actor. She comes from a family of Hollywood stars, being the granddaughter of the late actor Henry Fonda and the niece of actress Jane Fonda. Fonda is probably most famous for her roles in “Jacky Brown”, “Single White Female” and “Point of No Return”.

So just how wealthy is Bridget Fonda? The most recent reports state that the actress has acquired a net worth of over $10 million, earned during her long acting career in which she produced diverse and memorable roles. Fonda bought a modern Italian Renaissance villa in 2000 for $2.1 million. Several years after, she bought a Prairie-style home in the Freemont Place neighborhood in LA for $3.6 million.

After her parents divorced in 1972, her father remarried and Fonda was raised by him and his new wife in a suburb of LA, the Coldwater Canyon. She attended the Westlake School for Girls in Los Angeles, where she became involved in school theater productions, such as the comedy “Harvey”. Suffering from chronic stage fright didn’t prevent her moving to New York and majoring in theater at the Tisch School of the Arts at New York University. She also attended the Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute.

Fonda’s first acting experience had been when she was only five years old, accompanying her father in his 1969 classic “Easy Rider”. After being cast in several school productions, in 1982 she had a non-speaking role in the comedy “Partners” and in 1987 in “Aria”. Performing in several stage productions, she appeared in the 1988 movie “Scandal”, which earned her her first measure of acclaim as well as a Golden Globe nomination. The same year she appeared in the movies “You Can’t Hurry Love”, “Shag” and “Strapless”, launching herself into the public eye and increasing her net worth.

After establishing her acting career, in 1990 Fonda was cast in “The Godfather III” in which she played a reporter. Soon after she found herself in several roles in the early 90s movie scene, such as in the 1991 romantic comedy “Doc Hollywood”, the 1992 erotic thriller “Single White Female” playing the lead role, and the romantic comedy “Singles” of the same year. When she appeared in the action-drama “Point of No Return” the following year, her reputation as a Hollywood star was established and her wealth boosted; her portrayal of Maggie Hayward, a trained killer, received high praise from both the critics and a worldwide audience. In 1994 Fonda starred in “It Could Happen to You” demonstrating her talents once again. Respectable directors admired her performances which led to her being cast in the 1996 “City Hall”, the 1997 “Jacky Brown” and the 1998 “A Simple Plan”.

The 2000s brought Fonda new acting challenges, taking roles in several movies such as “South of Heaven, West of Hell”, “Delivering Milo” and “Kiss of the Dragon”. In 2003 she was in a car crash, but fortunately only resulting in cracked vertebrae, but went on to make several cameo appearances, such as in the series “The Chris Isaak Show” and “Night Visions”. She then retired gracefully from acting.

Fonda is a two-time Golden Globe winner. Throughout her career, she appeared in over 40 movies, producing a number of memorable, distinctive roles which contributed to the actress’s net worth.
Aside from her acting career, Fonda has also done modeling for the H&M’s Christmas lingerie catalog in 2001.

When it comes to her personal life, Fonda has been married to film/TV composer Danny Elfman since 2003. The couple has a son together, while Elfman has a daughter from previous marriage. Fonda previously dated screenwriter Lee Drysdale, her co-actor from “Singles” Eric Stoltz, and country singer Dwight Yoakam, in whose directorial debut she starred back in 2000.
