NextImg:Bridget Fonda unrecognizable during rare outing 20 years after quitting acting

More On:


Bridget Fonda looked unrecognizable as the reclusive actress made a rare outing more than 20 years after quitting Hollywood.

The “Jackie Brown” star — who was last seen in September 2022 — was spotted in Los Angeles on Friday while running errands at a landscaping supply store.

She kept her look casual for the outing, wearing an oversized white sweater, a pair of black capri pants and blue sneakers. 

Fonda, 59, completed her comfy look by wearing her hair up in a messy ponytail.

Before the former Hollywood star’s last public appearance in the fall, she had been photographed in January 2022 — on her 58th birthday — for the first time in 12 years.

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 tied the knot with former Oingo Boingo frontman, Danny Elfman, and a year later, the two began expanding their family.

They welcomed their son, Oliver, now 18, in 2004. Elfman is also dad two daughters, Lola and Mali, from his previous marriage to Geri Eisenmenger.

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.”

She is also part of the famous Fonda acting lineage, which includes her grandfather, Oscar-winning actor Henry Fonda (who died in 1982), her father, “Easy Rider” star Peter Fonda (who died in 2019), and her aunt, actress Jane Fonda, 85.

In 1993, Bridget got candid about how coming from an infamous family affected her career.

“I wonder what kind of satisfaction I would have with where I am now if I wasn’t part of a family that has done such phenomenal work,” she told Movieline at the time. “I wonder what it would feel like to know that you’ve made it completely under your own steam.

“I sometimes wonder if I would be more at peace if I could know I made it by myself, instead of always wondering how many times my name got me in the door.”
