In 2003, Bridges decided to step outside of acting by the time she was in highschool. Instead, the actress decided to take on different creative paths, including hairstyling and singing. ‘I kind of got to the point where I was missing a lot of school, and I couldn't participate in sports," she told reporters at Huffington Post. ‘And I guess I just wanted to feel like I was a normal teenager, so I played volleyball. I was second team all-state.’
