Personal quotes from Bridget Fonda
"I can be pretty nasty. Not 'mean' nasty, but nasty by your parents' standards. But not by my parents' standards, because my parents were nasty for their day."
"I'm afraid of making a mistake. I'm not totally neurotic, but I'm pretty neurotic about it. I'm as close to totally neurotic as you can get without being totally neurotic."
"Nudity is who people are at the most interesting point of the evening, when they take off their protective layer, when no one is watching."
