After Bridget Fonda made a name for herself in the 1990s with roles in a number of films, including The Godfather Part III, Single White Female, Singles, Point of No Return, It Could Happen to You, and Jackie Brown, and appeared in her final role in The Whole Shebang in 2001, she all but disappeared from entertainment.

Although Fonda was seen on a couple of television shows in the early 2000s, including Night Visions, No Ordinary Baby, and Snow Queen, her final role to date, she's maintained a low profile in recent years.

Amid the height of her career in the 1990s, Fonda dated Eric Stoltz, who she initially met in 1986. However, after an eight-year relationship, the couple parted ways.

Years later, Fonda hit it off with Danny Elfman, a film composer and former Oingo Boingo frontman. And, in late 2003, they tied the knot.

Two years into their marriage, with Fonda removed from her career as an actress, the couple began focusing on family and welcomed their only child together, a son named Oliver.

Months before she and Elfman got married, on February 27, 2003, Fonda, the daughter of Peter and Jane Fonda, was involved in a serious car crash in Los Angeles.

As the New York Post revealed at the time, Fonda lost control of her 2001 Jaguar during the incident and ultimately, the vehicle flipped over an embankment and rolled downhill.

Luckily, despite the terrifying ordeal, Fonda suffered just minor cuts and bruises.

"She’s doing OK and hopefully she’ll be out of the hospital by tomorrow,” said the actress’ spokeswoman, Nancy Seltzer. “That’s all that matters.”

After setting down with Elfman and starting a family, Fonda distanced herself from the entertainment industry. And, according to Closer Weekly, it may have been Fonda's decision to put Elfman and Oliver above all else that ultimately led her to quit Hollywood completely.

Although Fonda is no longer working in the industry, she did remain close to Hollywood and currently lives just a short drive away from the many film and television studios located in the surrounding areas of Los Angeles.

As The Real Deal revealed in June, Fonda and Elfman owned two homes in Brentwood, California until late 2020 and after selling them, and purchased two neighboring homes in Encino for $8 million.

According to the report, the homes are 1950s ranch-style homes with 10 bedrooms and nine bathrooms in total.

Fonda and Elfman bought the first of the two homes, which boasts a whopping 6,000 square feet in March for $4.7 million and the second, 3,500-square-foot home more recently for $3.3 million
