Bridget Jane Fonda (born January 27, 1964) is an Emmy- and Golden Globe Award- nominated American actress.
Fonda was born in Los Angeles, California, into a family of actors, including her grandfather Henry Fonda, father Peter Fonda, and aunt Jane Fonda. Her mother, Susan Jane Brewer, is an artist. She is named after Margaret Sullavan's daughter Bridget Hayward, with whom her father was in love at one time..
She first became involved with the theatre when she was cast in a school production of Harvey. She refused to solicit acting tips and advice from her famous relatives, and studied method acting at New York University's Tisch School of the Arts and the Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute.
She made her film debut as an extra 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. Her second film role was also a non-speaking role in the 1982 comedy Partners. It was not until 1988 that she had her first speaking role in a feature film starring with John Hurt in Scandal, based on the Profumo affair. That year, she also appeared in both You Can't Hurry Love and Shag.
Her first big role in a movie was when she starred as an attractive journalist in The Godfather, Part III. After gaining additional work experience on a few theater productions and small movie roles, she was cast in the lead for Barbet Schroeder's Single White Female. A review in the New Yorker proclaimed she had "...a provocative, taunting assertiveness" and Rolling Stone said that Fonda was "a comic delight". Fonda was also offered the role of Ally McBeal before Calista Flockhart, but turned it down to focus on her film career.
