Bridget Fonda

Columbia Pictures

Bridget Fonda, part of a legendary acting family, first appeared onscreen as a child in 1969’s Easy Rider, whihc starred her father, Peter Fonda. By the 1990s, she was one of Hollywood’s most in-demand stars, appearing in films from 1990’s The Godfather Part III to 1992’s Singles and Single White Female, to 1993’s La Femme Nikita remake Point of No Return (above) to 1997’s Jackie Brown.

But in the early 2000s, after marrying composer Danny Elfman, she chose to walk away from the industry, with nothing to prove.

She made headlines last week when a paparazzo interrupted her at Los Angeles International Airport to ask if she would ever return to asking. She said no, explaining, “It’s too nice being a civilian.”
