Bridget Fonda takes slights and rebuffs very personally and though she may forgive a transgression by a friend or loved one, she never forgets it.
Fonda depends a great deal upon other people for emotional support and she has a large "family" of friends that care about her and treat her as kin.
A year later, she did a sexy dance with a Confederate flag in "Shag" which caught the eye of writer-director David Hare, who cast her as Blair Brown's flighty younger sister in "Strapless" (1989).
By then she had already gained widespread attention in "Scandal" (released two months earlier in 1989), playing Mandy Rice-Davies, one of the young women involved in the notorious English government-sex scandal of the 1960s.
Bridget Fonda feels that little, daily acts of caring and thoughtfulness are essential to the happiness and success of relationships and she knows how to make others feel accepted, loved and cherished. Bridget Fonda has a buoyant, cheerful disposition and she reaches out to others in a warm, open and friendly way.
