This Is What The Cute Little Girl From 'Space Jam' Looks Like Today
Remember Penny Bae Bridges? Twenty years ago -- when she was just five years old -- Bridges starred opposite basketball legend Michael Jordan in the 1996 film “Space Jam.”
Though playing Michael Jordan's fictional daughter immediately propelled her career to unexpected heights — she landed several television roles in the following years — Bridges soon realized Hollywood had left her little room to be a normal teenager. So she quit.
Now, Bridges, 25, lives in Los Angeles with her adorable 6-year-old son. She's an artist, musician and hairstylist by day, and ironically, an aspiring actress by night, according to the Huffington Post.
See what the stunner looks like now below.
First of all, yes, her middle name really is “Bae.”
You may not recognize her name, but Bridges appeared in several films and shows in the late '90s.
In addition to “Space Jam,” the child actress starred in the sitcom “Half and Half.”
But eventually, she chose to end her acting career to focus more on school and sports.
Now, however, Bridges is hoping to get back into acting.
Specifically, the former child star hopes to land a role in the upcoming “Space Jam” sequel for old times' sake.
