Before They Were Stars: 4-Year Old Bridget Fonda in “Easy Rider”

Given that she was born into such a prominent acting family, it was somewhat inevitable that Bridget Fonda would follow in their footsteps, though she wouldn’t actually start her career until the late 1980s. However, her very first appearance on camera came at the age of four during the hippie commune sequence in her father Peter Fonda’s iconic film, Easy Rider.¬†She’s the blonde girl being held by the future Grizzly Adams himself, Dan Haggerty. Her non-actor brother, Justin, also plays one of the kids during this scene but, man, letting your kids be within fifty feet of a drugged-up Dennis Hopper during this time period almost qualifies as child endangerment.
