For the first time in 12 years, timid movie icon Bridget Fonda, 58, is spotted in public

After appearing in several critically praised movies, including Quentin Tarantino’s Jackie Brown, Bridget Fonda announced her retirement from acting in 2002. On Wednesday, she was virtually unrecognisable when she left her home in Los Angeles.

The 58-year-old ex-Hollywood siren was photographed driving Oliver, her 17-year-old son with husband Danny Elfman, about the city in her silver, high-end Land Rover.

Fonda pulled away from the spotlight to concentrate on raising her son at the family’s ranch in Santa Barbara and was last seen in a public setting in 2009 while attending the premiere of Quentin Tarantino’s World War II blockbuster Inglorious Basterds.

Bridget’s once-golden blonde hair was pulled back in a low ponytail and fastened with a scrunchie for the Wednesday errand run.

The daughter of Peter Fonda braved the day in a cozy black-and-white striped blouse and a pair of black sweatpants, marking another striking shift from her formerly ultra-glamorous image.

White crew socks and a pair of slip-on New Balance sneakers helped Bridget complete her outfit.

She juggled her keys, telephone, and a tumbler cup while carrying a blue purse over her body.

The Single White Female actress was accompanied on the outing by her cute dog, who followed her attentively as she entered and exited the vehicle.

The two-time Golden Globe winner was driving around the city with many objects strewn across her dashboard, including what seemed to be a box of face masks.

Before leaving a large parking garage, she was seen gazing in both directions.

Before parking her car on the road and entering a neighboring shop, Bridget zipped around the city.

In two adjacent homes in the Encino section of Los Angeles’ San Fernando Valley, Bridget currently resides with Danny, 68, and their lone child Oliver.

Numerous celebrities, such as Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra, Gwen Stefani, and Selena Gomez, call Encino home.

The couple, who got married in 2003, sold their Hancock Park estate earlier that year and then spent $8 million on two luxurious homes on nearby parcels.

Since leaving the performing industry in 2002, Bridget has led a tranquil life.

She comes from the illustrious Fonda Dynasty of Hollywood, which also includes her father Peter Fonda, aunt Jane Fonda, and grandfather Henry Fonda.

She secured prominent roles in several box office successes in the 1980s and 1990s, when she established herself in the acting industry.

In the classic 1992 thriller Single White Female, Bridget is best known for playing the protagonist Allison “Allie” Jones, who suffers from paranoia.

She co-starred with Matt Dillon in the Cameron Crowe-produced love story comedy Singles that same year.

In Quentin Tarantino’s 1997 criminal drama Jackie Brown, Fonda shared the screen alongside Robert De Niro, Samuel L. Jackson, and Pam Grier.

Her last significant performance was in Kiss of the Dragon (2001), a Jet Li film.

In order to create a family with her husband Danny, who has two kids, Lola and Mali, from his marriage to Geri Eisenmenger, she had made the decision to abandon her acting career in 2002. Oliver was born to the couple in 2005.

Danny and Bridget relocated to Santa Barbara, where they own a ranch, in 2020 after selling their two residences in Los Angeles for a total $14.6 million.

They had only intended to stay there for a month during lockdown but ultimately decided to make the ranch their permanent residence.
