Her cover highlights include Vogue Paris (May 1993), Elle (October 1993), and Glamour (six times). Discussing her early work in an interview given in July 2004, Moynahan said, “It was a crazy world that paid a lot of money.

Bridget Moynahan made her feature-film debut in the 2000 comedy-drama Coyote Ugly as Rachel, a bartender and dancer in a wild New York bar, a role considered her breakthrough. She accepted the role because she “thought it was interesting that the whole movie revolved around five women…and my character was so strong and independent.” The film received generally unfavorable reviews, but was a box-office success, earning $133 million worldwide.
Moynahan’s next role was a supporting role in the 2001 film Serendipity as Hally, the fiancée of John Cusack’s character. She worked opposite Ben Affleck and Morgan Freeman in the action film The Sum of All Fears, based on Tom Clancy’s book of the same name. She played Dr. Catherine Muller, a love interest for Affleck’s Jack Ryan. Dave Larsen of the Dayton Daily News reported the subplot involving Moynahan and Affleck was “the film’s weakest point”.
The film received ambivalent reviews, but was a commercial success, earning $193 million at the box office. Moynahan’s next role was as a CIA trainee in The Recruit (2003). The movie was poorly received, with Mike Clark of USA Today calling it “a less-than-middling melodrama whose subject matter and talent never click as much as its credits portend”. In 2004, Bridget Moynahan worked alongside Will Smith in Alex Proyas’ science-fiction movie I, Robot, loosely based on Isaac Asimov’s short-story collection of the same name.
She portrayed Dr. Susan Calvin, a specialist in robot psychology. The film received mixed reviews, though critics enjoyed Moynahan’s performance.

It debuted on September 20, 2006, and was watched by almost 13.3 million viewers. It debuted to varied reception, with David Hinckley of the New York Daily News writing, “In theory, it’s an intriguing concept for a series. But in practice, Six Degrees doesn’t work at all in drawing you in at the start.” After one season, it was canceled in May 2007.
Bridget Moynahan’s next film role was in the November 2006 thriller Unknown, about a group of individuals kidnapped and trying to escape their captors together.
