No. That's entirely preventable.

Re: What happened to Bridget Fonda?

In my purely anecdotal observation, 47 is the year around which most people start to really visibly age. Most people look around the same until then. YMMV.

As far as weight gain, sure it's preventable. But then 2/3rds of Americans are overweight or obese so

Probably caused by public scrutiny of her appearance for decades.

I'm doubting that's the cause here.
However, this is partially what celebrities sign up for when they continue to pose on the red carpet, or in magazines, etc.. flaunting their new dresses, hair styles, etc. ... turning around like a model on a catwalk to ensure the cameraman gets every angle. I don't know if Fonda played those games as well, but most celebrities do because they know it helps their career. If you want to attract people's attention and have them look at you and admire your looks - then you can expect some people to criticize how you look as well.

Now I don't agree with stalking them and plastering their pictures in tabloids of how they look in the real world - that's a different story.

Re: What happened to Bridget Fonda?

Should be easy to ID her based on the mole under her chin with other pictures...there now you do the work.

I was thinking the same thing, but am too lazy to search for old pictures of her.

Re: What happened to Bridget Fonda?

So the “new” pics are just more of the old pics? That looks like the same set from earlier this year.

My quick 2 minute google search didn’t turn up any pictures of young Bridget with that mole under her chin. Who knows, maybe she always covered it with makeup.

This is the closest I could find to a possible mole:




But the fact that Bridget hasn’t come out and denied it’s her is more telling than any internet sleuthing, forensic analysis of grainy photos.

Kinda figure Elfman would be protesting, "THAT IS NOT MY WIFE!" if it wasn't.

That may well be true. Most antidepressants cause weight-gain.

As does prednisone and a host of other corticosteroids in treating inflammation and autoimmune disorders Kind of weird to speculate either way.

Speaking of which, just before he passed away I saw a few Smithereens concerts and Pat Denizio (lead singer/guitarist) looked GINORMOUS. 350+ lbs, at least. Having been on prednisone before, I could recognize the details. And empathize.

Still sounded great though. Amazing, actually. Man they were a great band

Re: What happened to Bridget Fonda?

Why not create a what happened to Zak Effron thread and make this a fair fight?

People say he had some work done and if he did that is the true crime and not Bridget getting older and aging.

I heard he had an accident and broke his jaw then his jaw muscles hypertrophied.

That’s the story but if you look at him, obvious plastic surgery is obvious.

Whatever happened to Zac Efron?

IDK, but I wish it would happen to me.

Article I grabbed it from says it was him on the beach in March 2022.

But anyways, I would still sell my soul to Satan to look like the picture you posted.

Hell yeah. Zac feeding the public a ton of boloney sandwiches. How you going to slip in a water puddle near your home and get your jaw looking like Robert Z'Dar?

She was gorgeous. And agreed.

Just because they “sign up for it” doesn’t mean it can’t take a toll. And in her case, she completely left the business. So it is very easy for me to believe the constant dialogue about her appearance played a part in both her decision to get out of the spotlight and why she no longer seems to be concerned with meeting an expectation about how she should look now based on how she used to look. And at this point she’s obviously not choosing to “flaunt” herself - if she was publicly criticizing the scrutiny at the height of her fame, that’s different than someone who just appears to be going about her life.

And I still don’t understand why anyone cares what this person does or doesn’t do with her life, especially to the point of stalking her to take pictures so that people can…what, point and laugh? What’s the endgame here?
