Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

A statuesque brunette of Irish descent, Bridget Moynahan first turned heads as Mr. Big's fresh-faced wife Natasha on "Sex and the City" (HBO, 1998-2004), before landing roles in some of Hollywood's biggest blockbusters. Unfortunately, when she was unexpectedly cast in the real-life role of jilted girlfriend of NFL heartthrob Tom Brady, Moynahan found her professional résumé overshadowed by cheap tabloid gossip. A natural beauty, she began her career as a model, appearing in a number of fashion magazines before making the transition to acting. Following her debut on "Sex and the City" Moynahan found herself dancing on a bar in "Coyote Ugly" (2000), before moving on to a series of high-profile but unchallenging roles - usually as the girlfriend/fiancée/wife of the film's lead - in vehicles like "Serendipity" (2001), "The Sum of All Fears" (2002) and "Lord of War" (2005). With the news that football hero Brady had left her for supermodel Gisele Bundchen, followed by the revelation that the now single actress was pregnant with Brady's child, Moynahan found herself struggling to maintain a private life and a professional career in the midst of media firestorm.

With the news that football hero Brady had left her for supermodel Gisele Bundchen, followed by the revelation that the now single actress was pregnant with Brady's child, Moynahan found herself struggling to maintain a private life and a professional career in the midst of media firestorm. Although the press continued to feed on the scandal whenever the opportunity arose, Moynahan gradually began to refocus on her work again, with respectable turns in films like "Ramona and Beezus" (2010), as a cast member on the police procedural "Blue Bloods" (CBS, 2010- ), and a starring role in the apocalyptic science fiction action adventure "Battle: Los Angeles" (2011). Despite the efforts of some to pigeonhole her as "just another pretty face" or "the jilted girlfriend," Moynahan continually challenged herself as she moved forward in both her personal and professional life.

Notes

"I think they both got there good points to them. There's a lot of traveling in modeling, and there's great pay. But, you know, there's more to do in acting. There's more of an emotional life. You get more respect."---Moynahan on transistioning from modeling to acting

"Gratuities nudity is something I don't really understand and I find it completely unnecessary so I have turned down roles because it was unnecessary, but I think that if it's something that I feel is important to a role, or the scene, or to the character then I don't really have a problem with it. I just haven't had that issue quite yet."---Moynahan on doing nude scenes
