Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

I think we can all relate to Bridget standing in a hallway wanting to know, "Do you love me or not?". She just blurts it out and maybe that makes her seem like she's not strong. I think she's very brave because she's speaking her mind. Ultimately, she knows that even if she doesn't get the right answer from this man, she will still get up and move forward. That's strength to me. See more »

Trivia:

She was awarded a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 7000 Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood, California on May 24, 2005. See more »
