About Bridget Fonda

Bridget Jane Fonda (born January 27, 1964) is an 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. Her parents divorced and he re-married to Portia Rebecca Crockett (ex wife of author Thomas McGuane). Peter and Portia brought up Fonda and her brother Justin, and older stepbrother Thomas McGuane Jr (b circa 1962) in the Coldwater Canyon section of Los Angeles.[citation needed] She attended Westlake School for Girls in Los Angeles. During this time, Bridget and Justin had little contact with their father or any of the Fonda family, recalling in an interview: "When I was a kid, the most important thing for me was my home... People would come and go, and things would change, but that place wouldn't. I loved it. I want to have that for the rest of my life. I want to have a place".

On November 29, 2003, she married film composer and former Oingo Boingo frontman Danny Elfman (who composed The Simpsons theme song). They have one son, Oliver, born in January 2005. She has not appeared in a film since her marriage.
