Bridget Fonda: Retired from Hollywood, Happy as a Civilian

Bridget Fonda, 59, says she won't return to acting in rare outing

In the ’80s and ’90s, Bridget Fonda was a shining star in the world of Hollywood. With her famous father and grandfather setting the stage, she had the potential to be a household name. From her breakout role in “21 Jump Street” to hit films like “Point Of No Return” and “Jackie Brown,” it seemed like she had it all.

But in 2002, at the age of 30, Bridget made a surprising decision. She walked away from the glitz and glam of Hollywood to focus on her family with partner Danny Elfman. Despite rumors and speculation about her departure, the now 59-year-old has no plans to return to acting.

Recently, Bridget was approached by a photographer at Los Angeles International Airport. When asked if she was interested in making a comeback, she simply said, “No.” Pressed further, she added, “It’s too nice being a civilian.”

While it’s hard to imagine Hollywood without the Fonda name, acting may not be in Bridget’s future. She may choose to continue living a fulfilling life away from the spotlight. But who knows? The acting bug could bite again, and if it does, there will surely be offers waiting.
