Bridget Fonda In Hospital After Crash

Actress Bridget Fonda is in hospital in Los Angeles with head and neck injuries after a car crash.
It is thought her car rolled after a collision with another car, but full details of the crash are not known.

The 39-year-old daughter of Peter and niece of Jane has film credits including Godfather Part III, The (1990), Strapless (1989) and Single White Female (1992).

Grand-daughter of Hollywood legend Henry Fonda, she is one of very few third-generation film stars although she has often confessed to a turbulent relationship with her parents.

She told one interviewer: "I can be pretty nasty. Not 'mean' nasty, but nasty by your parents' standards. But not by my parent's standards, because my parents were nasty for their day."

She was offered the role of Ally McBeal in 1997 but turned it down. She is believed to have not even read the script to what became one of the most successful TV dramas of the past 10 years.

She has recently been romantically linked with the singer Dwight Yoakam.

Before that, she spent most of the 1990s living with actor Eric Stoltz.
