These days, Bridget Moynahan is best known as Erin Reagan on the long-running hit drama Blue Bloods. But she landed her breakthrough role a full decade before the show started. Moynahan was among the ensemble of female actors who headlined the 2000 film Coyote Ugly. As she revealed, her young son intensely reacted to seeing his mom dance on the titular bar in the film.

Between Coyote Ugly and Blue Bloods, Moynahan had a solid run in several high-profile Hollywood films. She appeared with John Cusack and Kate Beckinsale in Serendipity, opposite Ben Affleck in The Sum of All Fears, and Al Pacino and Colin Farrell in The Recruit in the early 2000s. Most notably, she was the female lead in Will Smith’s hit sci-fi action film I, Robot. 

But for over a decade, Blue Bloods has kept fans tuning in to CBS weekly to catch up with the personal and professional challenges of the Reagan family. Tom Selleck leads the show as New York City Police Commissioner Frank Reagan. But Moynahan remains one of the most integral stars on the show, too — as Selleck’s on-screen daughter. However, the path that led her to the role ultimately starts with Coyote Ugly.

Moynahan has a teenage son with her ex, Tom Brady. Although she hasn’t shown her son much of her work, the actor mentioned his reaction to her performance in Coyote Ugly during a 2022 interview on The Drew Barrymore Show.

But this wasn’t the first time Moynahan shared the story of her 20th anniversary rewatch of Coyote Ugly. In fact, she revealed a bit more detail in a 2020 Live with Kelly and Ryan appearance. While she again mentions her son’s calling her “wild,” Moynahan never even got the chance to finish watching the movie due to a power outage.
