Bridgette Wilson Biography
Bridgette Wilson was raised in Oregon. She had her sights set on stardom early, and was awarded Miss Teen USA in 1990. But, she didn't want to earn her fame through modeling, and set out the next year for Hollywood, where she began acting classes as soon as she got into town.
As many celebs will painfully admit, Bridgette got her foot in the door through the soaps, landing a role on Santa Barbara. Luckily, she ducked out of soap operas and turned instead to the big screen. She landed the role of Arnold Schwarzenneger's daughter in Last Action Hero, a film that went on to decent box office success.
Her first significant role was in the Adam Sandler comedy Billy Madison. Needless to say, the film didn't garner much critical praise, but it did help to give Bridgette a world of exposure, as the film had a significant amount of success at the box office and enjoys a healthy 'video-rental' life even now.
A number of other roles followed, including Nixon and I Know What You Did Last Summer. She made a independent film Love Stinks, which was a very interesting film, that put Bridgette in the role of absolute superbitch.
Bridgette is also an accomplished singer. She's quietly released two albums, "Gimme a Kiss" and "I Only Want to Be With You." She's also a fairly active humanitarian, working with MADD, American Oceans Campaign, and in support of AIDS prevention and treatment.
