AKA Bridget Jane Fonda Born: 27-Jan-1964Birthplace: Los Angeles, CAGender: Female Race or Ethnicity: White Sexual orientation: Straight Occupation: Actor Nationality: United States Executive summary: Single White Female Bridget Fonda is the niece of Jane Fonda, daughter of Peter Fonda, and granddaughter of Henry Fonda. There is a brief glimpse of four-year-old Fonda in her father's Easy Rider, but she resisted going into acting until high school, when she appeared in a school play and had a tiny part in an abysmal Ryan O'Neal comedy called Partners.
She studied drama for four years at New York University, and has said she felt very uncomfortable on stage until her junior year.
In early 2003, Fonda suffered head and neck injuries when she drove her Jaguar over an embankment and off the Pacific Coast Highway.
Yoakam's recording debut was the self-financed EP Guitars, Cadillacs, Etc., Etc.
on independent label Oak Records produced by lead-guitarist Pete Anderson; this was later re-released by Reprise Records, with several additional tracks, as his major-label debut LP, 1986's Guitars, Cadillacs, Etc., Etc..
Last year, in addition to releasing two albums (Tomorrow's Sounds Today and dwightyoakamacoustic.net), Yoakam also finished his writing and directing debut, South Of Heaven, West Of Hell, in which he appears alongside an expansive cast of friends and notables. The Onion: How do you find time for both music and film work? It's tougher to balance all the press activity, actually. But formally, it was only in a theater environment that I was given the opportunity to perform in front of an audience in a secular way.
Seriously, it's tougher to find the time, between meetings and everything. But in terms of one impeding the other, it doesn't. When I was in junior high, a foreign-history teacher started a theater class. I was involved in singing in church, and leading singing, but I was raised in the Church Of Christ, and they didn't use music in worship, so there was no use of the guitar.
Yoakam has never been married or engaged and hasn't had a romance with another public figure in some time.
Despite being linked to Wynonna Judd, Sharon Stone, Bridget Fonda, and Karen Duffy in the '90s, Yoakam has invested his more time and energy in his career than pursuing Hollywood's women.Yoakam briefly attended Ohio State University, but dropped out and moved to Los Angeles in 1977 When he began his career, Nashville was oriented toward pop "urban cowboy" music, and Yoakam's brand of hip honky tonk music was not considered marketable.Not making much headway in Nashville, Yoakam moved to Los Angeles and worked towards bringing his particular brand of new Honky Tonk or "Hillbilly" music (as he called it) forward into the 1980s.The actual work of recording a record or making a film just requires that you consciously block the time out to do that and nothing else. You know, I had just finished doing press on the record, and then they pushed back work on the film I was working on, so they scheduled more press. O: You were successfully making music before you started making films. So I got my feet wet there and through high school, so I was very fascinated with acting as a means of expression. Actually, ironically, in high school, the theater program allowed me to take what I did as a singer on stage in front of people. So it does sort of tie in, in an ironic way, that my involvement in theater in high school allowed me the opportunity to start performing music with a band. One time, we had a little carnival and I was able to do three songs with a trio, but I count that more as an exercise in terror.In my junior year, we had a variety show, so I formed a rockabilly band and performed music in front of an audience for the first time. [Laughs.] Then I began to focus solely on music in my late teens and early 20s.There were many so-called outsiders inside Staples Center on Friday for Eric Church's stop as part of his "The Outsiders World Tour." So many outcasts that they couldn't help but bond like a bunch of insiders.
