After more than 20 years away from the spotlight, Bridget Fonda was spotted in Los Angeles on Friday running errands at a landscaping supply store. She looked unrecognizable in an oversized white sweater, black capri pants, and blue sneakers, with her hair pulled up in a messy ponytail.
Fonda’s last public appearance was in September 2022, and before that, in January 2022 on her 58th birthday. Fans were shocked to see the former Hollywood star looking much different from her days as an actress.
Fonda reportedly left Hollywood in the early 2000s after getting into a bad car accident, in which she suffered a fractured back. In 2003, she married former Oingo Boingo frontman Danny Elfman and the two began expanding their family. They welcomed their son Oliver in 2004, and Elfman has two daughters from his previous marriage.
Fonda’s biggest movie role was as the lead in the 1992 thriller “Single White Female.” She also starred in “The Godfather Part III,” “Singles,” “Point of No Return,” “It Could Happen to You” and “Jackie Brown.” Her last role was in 2002 for a TV film called “Snow Queen.”
In 1993, Fonda got candid about how coming from a well-known family affected her career. She said she wondered if she would be more at peace if she could know she made it by herself, instead of always wondering how many times her name got her in the door.
